3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at FFF. No sampler available. Weak foam on low straw. Decent white lace eventually. Nose is mild starfruit any squashy melon hops. Taste is mild, clean, grassy bitterness with starfruit and sweet melon. A lactic mango juice twang is quite refreshing. Really liking the palate. Clean, simple. As it warms, hefty buttered popcorn diacetyl comes through. Not so bad though.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at DLD 2013, labeled "Ronin." Pours a clear gold color with a small white head. Clean, citrusy/herbal hops (a hint of pot) balance bubblegum and honey. Light florals, too. Light-bodied, with a sweet mouthfeel that finishes clean. Moderate carbonation. Good palate cleanser for the event.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft on tap at the brewpub (Munster, IN). Pours a richly glowing darker golden pour, some lively orange flashes, darker body with good carbonation. Cakey offwhite head sits atop, mellow layer, ok lacing overall. Gentle haze, striking glow with a darkness in the body. Good mellow head cap. Aromas show mellow bread, gentle grass, grainy malts. Some clean malts, gentle earthy hop is subtle. Mellow rice, straw, kiss of florals, lemon. Initial is lighter end of the fold, touch of girth in the middle. Bready, grainy malts are mellow, rice adds clean malt, mellow, touches of lemon, grass, kiss of lemon cookie. Gentle straw, grass, wet grain and a bit of dough. Gentle dry earthy hops, kiss of lemon, mellow distinct sweetness offfers some life that I just can’t pinpoint. Gentle florals, grass. A mellow easily crushable offering with just a touch of body, some hop flourishes, clean body that gets a touch lemon cookie-ish. Not bad but I prefer their other Rice experiments more it seems.
