3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rice ale with prominant but not aggressive hop taste. Nice color. Very drinkable beer but probably wont be found outside the brewery.
Full pour at DLD2013. Rating from notes. Pours a nice golden color with a large fluffy white head. Aroma of nice grass and citrus hops, mild malt and rice sweetness undertones. Flavor is light, hoppy, mild malt sweetness. Quite smooth and creamy, finishes clean. Average carbonation. The rice added an interesting element here.

At FFF brewpub. Pours an almost clear amber, white head that recedes to a ring, small islands of lace. Nose is like Welches white grape. Tastes sweet, but sugar dry and bites, but like your eating grape skins. beerbaaron (1997) - Arizona, USA - JUL 4, 2013
Almost clear light gold. Large fluffy head, reducing, mostly lasting with light lace. Moderate bitterness. Fairly dry. English leather as it warms.. Not my favorite FFF DalzAle (2040) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Tap. Clear golden pour, frothy 1" head and an aroma of light grain/hay. Flavor is mildly malty, hints of a little hops and faint under-ripe peach. Nice beer. GT (10017) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 28, 2013
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.

Tap. Bright gold pour, white head, some retention/lace. Aroma of rice, melon, bread, lemon, grass, lager yeast. Taste is milky, rice, lemon, grass, melon, lightly bitter. Palate is dry, soft, creamy, light bitter finish. Really nice. phaleslu (10895) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 1, 2013
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. Patrickctenchi (6808) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - APR 30, 2013
Pours pale gold with a whipped, white head.
Creamy rice aroma and flavour...
Very smooth rice notes....
Delightful and smooth. daknole (11048) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 28, 2013
Yellow pour, white head. Flavor actually has a rice flavor with some pilsener malty notes, lemony at the finish. Odd but ok. shrubber85 (11706) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - APR 28, 2013
Draft at DLD13. Grassy rice malt aroma. Cloudy yellow with moderate head. Lemon, rice malt, and mildly bitter lemon peel flavor. Pleasant and easy drinking.
