4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Numerous bottles. One of the absolute most drinkable, most delicious beers I’ve ever tasted. I can’t imagine a better session beer. Brett horsiness is dead on, backing up an utterly dry beer with a light but creamy body. Carbonation is perfect, even with the large fluffy white head. I don’t know what this beer could possibly do more right.

Here’s the facts: no matter how nice a yeast you use or how many pounds of hops you put in, when you brew a beer with rice and corn, it’s gonna suck. Granted, Stillwater Premium is the least sucky of the plethora of awful corn-n-rice adjunct beers, but it still has a thin middle, an unpleasant texture, and nothing for the killer yeast strains to build upon. A noble experiment, but not a good beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Capped 750 from the Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours a light dishwater gold with a 3 finger foamy white head. Aroma is lightly sweatsox. Near medium body. Flavor is citric/sour with a lot of barnyard character. Lager malt with a fair amount of hop, but the earthiness pretty much overrides the details. Like it’s really a good sour/wild. Dry and astringent. Brilliant beer.

On tap at Jimmy's no 43 in NyC. This is a delicious beer as always from stillwater. Definitely taste the rice, and the Brett is subtle but there. V nice.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Quite the interesting concept put together here by Stillwater. 750ml purchased at Uber in Seattle. Looks similar to a lager with some color with not too much head. Spicey brett nose, but faint. Some nice grassy full lagerish type flavors going on squared up with the brett goodness, but again, it’s polite and forward, is well built into the beer. I really liked this! Would definitely buy again...and hopefully for cheaper then the $25 Uber wanted for it ;).

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml Pours a light blonde straw color with big gaseous head that sits on top like a well made bubble bath. Crisp aromas of noble hops, touch of lemon and some funky earthy barn hay coming through. On the sip it delivers a highly carbonated light body with bright lemon flavors up front... that slowly lay down for a nice bitter hop mid palate and a touch peppery funk on the dry finish. Well balanced easy drinker but complex enough that i want to try it again....

Bottle shared with Puzzl at Ginger Man. Pours gold with a white head. This is awesome, grainy malty lightly sweet base, funky bretty yeast, and a hint of lemon. Dirty, clean, and delicious.

750ml from Ridgewood Wine and Beer, Raleigh. Boy, this one is right up my alley. Big, vibrant, pale gold pour with a raucous head. Nose is scrumdiddlyumptious, fill with noble hops, a touch of spicy yeast, and just enough Brett to let you know shit’s going down. Taste is awesome, dry and a bit dank, like a really refreshing pilsner with some funky and wood-aged properties.
