look: 5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Appearance> Golden rice lager to a tee. lacy. small head. good retention. clear with medium liveliness. Looks exactly as it should. Good job!

Smell> I am starting to doubt my predictions... yep. fermented rice, bit like a cheap sake hitting lightly and what's that that follows? alcohol.There are further notes of not really much else.

Taste> more flavorful than most of its style, and no metallic taste. Medium complexity with a crisp finish. Almost too crisp. I can't really get my head around it but there is something in the finish that doesn't sit right with me.

Mouf> seltzery, but drinkable.

Drinkablity> average.

Cap reads "For Your Happy Time" - let's go.

A: Poured from a 633 ml brown bottle a clear pale yellow with one-finger thick white head which fades quickly to the rim and a thin cap leaving splotchy lace.

N: Grainy and husky earthyness with some grass/hay and yeasty notes.

T: Crisp and clean, mildly sweet malts, yeasty, floral, slightly metallic aftertaste.

M: Light body and semi-medium carbonation. Semi-dry, smooth, frosty, yeasty finish.

O: Basic and easy to drink and enjoyable with food.

3.43/5  rDev +14%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pale gold champagne colour, steady bead. Head is white and foamy, pretty decent density. Nice lace.

Grain, rice and pearl barley on the nose. Hint of grassy, European hops, but mostly grain, and pretty bland.

Taste is based on cereal grain, notes of puffed rice and pearl barley, but finishes early, some grassy, slightly soapy hop notes. Very clean, finishes dry, crisp; lagery you might say. Actually tastes alright. Not very interesting but pleasant

Decent if a little thin body, bit of fizz, finishes dry enough.

Decent crisp lager. Overall pretty uninspiring, but plenty drinkable.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Poured into a Dogfish Head pint glass. Pours a light yellow amber with a thin white cap that has decent retention with slight lacing. Aroma of sweet malt with light sweet apple juice and a hint of grassy hops. Flavor is light sweet malt with a minerally bitterness that eventually resolves as light grassy hops. An unusual light bland sweetness that may be the rice components. Light bodied. A pleasant light lager that is milder and slightly sweeter than a domestic adjunct lager. Bland and harmless, tasted pretty good on a hot summer day. My one hundredth style on BA.

Poured out of a 1 pint 5.4 fluid ounce bottle into a tall tasting glass

Pours a beautiful brilliant clear light yellow body and a beautiful thick white head

Mineral sweet very very faint hop presence

Sweet front somewhat stale hop middle and finish
