Life On Tap Episode #266: Dry Crispy

Dan downs Bingo Beer Co Dry Crispy, a rice lager with Hüell Melon and Lemondrop hops, care of @RVABeermeister earlier during the pandemic.

Bingo Beer Co Dry Crispy

STYLE: Rice Lager
INGREDIENTS: Koji rice, barley; Hüell Melon and Lemondrop hops
ABV: 4.4%
IBU: 18
AVAILABILITY: 16-Ounce Can (Limited)
NOTES: Collaboration with North American Sake Brewery and Chef Adam Hall of Saison

Stats above taken from the brewery’s can and website.

Appearance

Light, clear, straw yellow with a fluffy, white head.

Aroma

Lemon essence oil mixed with a hint of underripe honeydew melon.

Taste

Delicate balance between the rice/barley and the hops presenting with a nice minerality and slightly fruity finish.

Mouthfeel

Super dry and crisp on the palate with a pleasant, soft carbonation.

Overall

This rice lager is pretty true to style and immensely sessionable. If this was available, I would totally have these outside at picnics, barbecues, pool, beach, or concert venue for sure. Pair it with whatever you like, though I bet it would kill with Japanese food.

Thank you so much to Sterling aka @RVABeermeister for sharing this during the pandy.

Cheers and remember:

Life’s a tap…drink up ’til it’s dry.
