Brewed for GABS Festival 2013 and tried on tap there.

Pours a gold colour, clear with foamy white head. Dissipates quickly to leave a very thin rim around the edge. Disappointing.

Smells grainy. Sweet, with cereal grain and plenty of adjunct aroma. Smells like rice, really. Not much else to it.

Taste is grainy, too. Oatmeal, with a touch of pearl barley, and some rice as well. Sweetness doesn't even really figure into it, which is a shame. It's got 'graininess' in common with a Vienna lager, but aside from that it's just bland.

Thin, quite fizzy. Disappointed here, too.

Yeah, stylistically I think it's OK, but it's a very bland version of a Vienna lager. I tend to picture them as, and expect them to be, quite toasty and hearty with a light-to-medium body and this just doesn't have much substance to it.
