Comes with ABV 4.7%. Contains rice.
Pours clear golden beer with nice golden head. Excellent herbal hop aroma. Strong sweet malty taste with moderate bitter finish. Well-balanced beer with medium carbonation. You can feel notes of unmalted materials (i.e. rice) in the taste. All in all, the beer is not so fair as it was expected.

Served at the brewery's pub, the filtered version came out a clear gold under a two-fingered white head that stuck around as long as there was beer in the glass, and left some nice lacing. There was very little nose while the beer was cold, but as it warmed, notes of grass or hay hit the nostrils. The mouth is medium-bodied, with plenty of carbonation. The taste starts with sweet barley, followed by a bit of mild grassiness. There is very little bitterness here anywhere. This beer is certainly smooth, but ultimately not very satisfying.
