About The Beer
Brewery: Pirate Life Brewing
Format: 355ml Can
This Rice Lager was developed by PL brewer, James Russo, and is our first official crack at the style. We’re calling it Russ Lager down at the brewery, but you don’t have to.
Brewed with Pilsner Malt, Acidulated Malt and a good whack of flaked rice, it’s been hopped with Motueka and Sorachi Ace. A full month in tank (that’s two weeks fermenting on German lager yeast and a further two conditioning) has delivered refreshment and complexity in equal parts.
It pours golden and crystal clear. Expect aromas of frangipani and rice pudding, with lifted notes of dill. On the palate, it’s clean and savoury, with sharp carbonation and a mild, lingering bitterness.
