Rice Lager “R4”
A New Beer Made with Rice Instead of Barley or Wheat Malt
A Korean traditional liquor exporter, Baesangmyun Brewery, recently released its new liquor product: Rice Lager R4. It uses rice as the main ingredient and applies a beer manufacturing method. Rice Lager R4 is a refined rice wine made with rice, hops, and a special yeast―instead of barely or wheat malt. Its taste, however, is similar to that of beer. In fact, the liquor is very aromatic, smooth, and delicate.
Rice Lager R4 uses an original Korean fermentation technique based on yeast, and many experts very much appreciate the product for bringing together the refreshing taste of beer with the unique flavor of Korean traditional liquor.
Goes Well with Korean Dishes and Other Asian Foods
Orange colored Rice Lager R4 can be a good accompaniment to Korean dishes such as haemul-pajeon (seafood and green onion pancake), japchae (glass noodles with sauteed vegetables), and tteokbokki (stir-fried rice cake). It also goes well with foods from other Asian cuisines like Chinese and Thai.
Rice Lager R4 has 5.8 percent alcohol content (higher than the 4.5 percent of general beers). Its best temperature for drinking is 8 to 10℃. The sizes of the packages are 330ml and 500ml. The expiration date is one year from the manufacturing date.
The name of the product, “R4”, is formed from the first letters of the words “rice,” “refresh,” “rich,” and “real.”
