Very Good
Notes: Pale straw-colored, this lager is crisp, quenching, incredibly light, and highly attenuated. Flavors of mild rice sweetness and soft lemon, gently dry-hopped with Lemondrop and Saphir.

From a 16 oz. can with a smudged August 2021 date stamp. Sampled October 2, 2021.

The appearance is light yellow-amber with good clarity and an enormous then fading white head.

Aroma of grains, cooked rice, lemon grass, and herbal sensations like rosemary or sage.

Light mouthfeel but also smooth.

The taste is at first sweet and grainy with a burst of lemongrass and a light herbal finale. It also ends mildly dry. Rice aroma is more prominent than the taste.

Light, pale green color with a 4F head in a Brooklyn Oktoberfest glass.

Light fruit aroma.

Smooth MF, the body isn’t too light as is the case with some lagers.

Excellent fruit taste- definitely on the citrus side.

Mild bitterness in the finish.

Another excellent lager from Schilling.

Canned 7/27/20
Pours a med frothy fizzy head with med retention, touch of lacing, slight hazy light yellow color

nose is light but good, rich light malty aroma, grainy-sweet pilsner malt, just a hint of sake-like rice character, little fruitiness, hint of floral hop

Taste brings more rich malts, also on the lighter side but plenty of flavor, grainy-sweet lager or pilsner malts, a bit of a soft rice character sake-like, touch of floral hops, some fruity notes with touch of bitterness, drier finish, soft lager notes that gets a bit crisp on the finish, bit more bitterness

mouth is med to lighter bod, light fizzy carb, soft lager

Overall not bad, nice lager with hints of rice characters and light overall but plenty of malt flavor, easy drinking for summer

Pours a golden with some rice wine aroma and a hint of jasmine. It is pleasant and sweet (dry enough) with no flavors that make you say no no no no like some other rice lagers that are made on a grander scale.
