Birdsong Brewing Co. & Triple C Brewing Three Little Birds Rice Lager

Three Little Birds Rice Lager is a collaboration between two local Charlotte breweries, Birdsong Brewing CO. & Triple C Brewing. This rice lager is 4.4% ABV. This beer uses new and old-world hops as well as flaked rice. This lager pours a golden yellow with a rocky and sticky one-finger white head. The aroma is dry, sweet, crisp, and light. The flavor is sweet, crisp, dry, Cucumber. The mouthfeel is light. The finish is dry with a cucumber flavor. Then comes an aftertaste of dry cucumber and light hops. This beer is a good beer that is not overly dry for a rice lager. They (rice lagers) tend to be drier. This beer has a refreshing crisp overall flavor that I recommend trying. I give Three Little Birds Rice Lager an A-. The dryness keeps it down a notch. But it’s an otherwise good beer. Please stay safe, always be kind, and remember to enjoy responsibly! Cheers!

Creature comforts Brewing Co. & Threes Brewing Simply Put Rice Lager

CreatCreature Comforts Brewing Co. & Threes Brewing Simply Put Rice Lager, 4% ABV is a collaboration between the two breweries that are brewed in Athens, Georgia. This rice lager is brewed with Marsh Hen Mill Carolina Gold rice, along with Pacifica and Meridian hops. it pours a gold yellow straw color with a two-finger steady bright white head. The aroma is crisp, sweet biscuit with a very faint citrusy note. Now the flavor is sweet but not as sweet as it smells, and I found a nice crisp/dry breaded note with a very faint citrusy flavor. The mouthfeel is light and crisp. This rice lager finishes smooth crisp with dryness. That dryness carries into the aftertaste the is semi-sweet. Now for a while, I have been found of lagers, and I think that is because the craft beer scene is flooded with all kinds of IPAs. I like IPA, but you can only keep having something you like for so long before you need a break from it. I also believe that Lager beer will become the new tread. But anyhow I find this Creature Comforts Brewing Co. & Threes Brewing Simply Put Rice Lager to be a good beer, getting an A+. It isn’t as dry as some more classic rice lagers. It is refreshingly crisp with good flavors that are well brewed. I highly recommend Creature Comforts Brewing Co. & Threes Brewing Simply Put Rice Lager. Please be kind, be safe, and enjoy responsibly! Cheers!

Westbrook Brewing Company Yu Zuper Nice Rice Lager Brewed with Yusuf Juice

You probably haven’t heard of a Yuzu fruit. Well, Yuzu is a citrus fruit similar to the Kaffir Lime and looks like a small yellow grapefruit. Westbrook Brewing Co. Yu Zuper Nice, 4.5% is brewed with rice, a touch of Yuzu and lightly dry-hopped with Loral Hops. Rice lagers are typical of China and Japan. Yu Zuper Nice purchased from Total Wine pours a yellow lemon color with an almost two finger fluffy white head with an aroma of Yuzu, lemon sweetness hitting your nose with a rice sweetness as well. Taste is light with a nice juicy Yuzu/lemon flavor that slightly enhances the light rice sweetness that comes in on the middle and back of the mouth that is quite refreshing, especially on a warm humid day. Yu Zuper Nice finish with a light sweet crisp flavor and the] aftertaste is slightly and lightly tart from the Yuzu all with a light mouthfeel. This is Super nice and refreshing something that I could drink a bunch of, and I recommend you do the same. Westbrook Brewing Co. Yu Zuper Nice is one great beer, very well balanced and great use of Yuzu fruit with Loral hops in a rice lager. Hit hits the spot hard! I give it an A+. Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
