2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
The pale lager in this series, made with rice. Pours a pale and clear golden blonde with greenish hue under a sticky, snow white head. The cooked rice is immediately evident in the nose, reminiscent of an Asian lager, a bit sweaty too, some grassy hops, white bread and unmistakable iron. Malt sweet taste, sourish rice, minerally, smooth and thin, a bit watery even, with some grassy hop bitterishness in the finish. Different from your average Belgian ’pilsje’, made me think of a tropical lager but with a higher hop profile.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Brežice Beer Fest, thanks Ogi! Despite recent butchering of the terms saison, berliner weisse and sahti, NOTHING has been butchered as much as the term "pilsener". This poured a golden body with a white head. And that’s where every similarity to a pils stops. Dry sourish aroma, chewed up bubblegum. Sourish, bad vinous vague taste - rice FFS. Unless you really have no choice...
