From Victoria BC’s The Moon Under Water Pub & Brewery comes their brand new seasonal Session Lager named “Light Side of the Moon”.  With the play on the name I thought it fitting to suggest a Pink Floyd song from their album Dark Side of the Moon.  This session lager pours a cloudy light golden colour with a white head.  The aroma consists of melons, orange, rice malts and floral hops.  The flavour is of oranges, orange peels, melons, malts, some rice and some very mild hops.  Usually I am down on the use of rice in beer as the beer is filtered to remove the flavour it brings on.  It is usually used as a cheaper malt but with this beer it is used well to add flavour to this low alcohol unfiltered lager.  The alcohol content comes in at 4.2%.  The flavour is light as to be expected with a session ale or lager but it is still very tasty.

Commercial Description:  Unfiltered craft lager brewed with rice malts and sweet orange peel for a dry, refreshing finish.  Welcome to the Light side of craft beer.
