How many rice lagers have I ever had? LIke, one? Sapporo? Is Kirin one? Cus Kirin tastes just like MGD light...

Anyhow, unlike their exquisite Czech Booty Camp, this is less of a typical example of the style and more like the Floyds bein' the Floyds with a new set of ingredients. And this brew is, well, it's quite something.

Smells like a lawn. Not simply like grass, but a combination of grass and astringent lawn-enhancing products. Verdant hops mix with bread dough and odors that are pleasantly artificial.

Tastes like a goddamn rollercoaster. Weird green up front, moving into a dense biscuitiness that's like if you just cracked open a tube of Pillsbury Cresent rolls--that super jolt of butteryness that almost throws you off your seat. Finishes very dry, with only a little bit of bitterness lingering after the beer gets swallowed.

When you drink Sapporo there's a very distinct thickness to the beer. Sometimes, if it hits you right, it's silky. Other times it's slimey. Rice-heavy lagers are hard to balance, is what I'm getting at, and the Floyds seem to have rendered that problem mute by making the beer taste like raw dough and then upped the carbonation.

On-tap at 3 Floyds. Split an imperial pint with Nate, and then got another half pint before we left. Apparently this is actually an ale, but it falls somewhere between Japanese Rice Lager and American Pale Ale in style.

A - Big creamy white foam settles to a thick cap, leaving sheets of lace behind. Transparent golden body that was perhaps a faintest bit lighter than the other two pale ales I had.

S - A hefty dose of Sorach Ace lemon character, with a bit of black tea and earthiness, and the mild buttered, lemon tart flavor I always get from this hop.

T - Quite similar, with loads of lemon tart, a bit of bubblegum, and some restrained floral notes. Verging a bit towards Pledge, but avoids being medicinal. Malt sweetness is restrained, and bitterness is quite high as one would expect. Perhaps a hint of onion in the periphery.

M - Chewy, medium body, with well-hidden alcohol, and zesty active carbonation. Super dry, as rice beers tend to be.

D - Didn't like this quite as much as Samurai Gazebo, as I prefer the lower ABV of that beer, but it was still highly enjoyable. 3 Floyds seems to have a great handle on how to effectively use Sorachi Ace hops, and I hope they continue to make beers like this in the future.

On tap at Three Floyds, served in a nonic pint.

Pour: Completely clear pale yellow orange, with a nice white, soapy two finger head. Lots of sticky lacing.

Smell: Big bright citrus hoppiness (tangerine, orange zest) up front, with hints of floral aspects. Lots of typical lager breadyness, and a certain wheat aspect that reminded me of Gumballhead.

Taste: Woah! More hoppy than I expected. Lots of citrus hops assault your taste buds at first, with lemon, orange, and tangerine. A light floral aspect comes through, and some grass. Very refreshing. A lager breadyness, as well as the same Gumballhead wheaty aspect that I got from the nose. This is one of the best "lagers" I've ever had, but it drinks like a pale ale.

Mouthfeel: Incredibly drinkable as one might expect. Very refreshing. Finishes quite dry.

Overall: This beer was exactly what I was looking for when I went to FFF tonight, without even expecting it. Rice adds a perfect dry aspect. This is a supremely easy drinking hop assault that I would love to get a few bombers of come summer.

Served on-tap at Three Floyd's in an Imperial Pint

A- light golden color with a creamy white head that quickly dwindled into a very thin cap. Lacing was a solid sticky ring around the top of the glass.

S - light and fruity, a touch of banana with almost no discernible hop profile.

T - crisp and clean with a slight clove aftertaste.

M- light with decent carbonation. The clove aftertaste only lingers for a few moments. For the ABV, it seemed to really sneak up fast, wasn't even half way through the first glass when I sensed a bit of a buzz.

O - as somewhat of a hopheads I was pleasantly surprised with this. Minimal hops and just a smooth drinking lager, nice addition to the ever expanding lineup.
