Review and Tasting
Sampled on 14/01/2018
(sample bottle best before 06/Nov/18, Italian brewed)) Clear, pale golden with thin white head.
Toasted white bread, grilled sweetcorn and faint straw.
Light-bodied, clean and cleansing. Dry on the palate but with white bread sweetness balanced by light toasty maltiness and mild grassy hop bitterness.
Short and subdued, dry and toast with light hop bitterness.
As the name suggests this light-bodied lager (brewed with rice) is dry but with subtle sweet white bready notes dried by subtle toasty maltiness and mild grassy hop bitterness. Light, refreshing and unchallenging on a hot summer’s day.
