A variation of our macro-lager-type cream ale, “Hero.” The malt recipe is rather bare-bones, with the addition of rice in place of corn. The rice lightens the taste and perhaps adds a hint of fruit. A subtle malted barley sweetness with an almost neutralized hops bitterness leaves room for the delicate green tea flavor and aroma. Ginger adds fruit with subtle spice, rounding out the “Asian inspired” character of the beer.
