3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a 355ml can on 6/7/2013. Pours a clearish straw colour with a big white head. Has a strong, quite pleasant citrus aroma. The flavour features pale malt, more cirus fruit, lemon zest and a subtle hint of grapefruit, with a good, firm bitterness to finish thing off. The body and carbonation are both medium. These guys are doing a Surly and serving in cans and making some rather good stuff.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bright, palest yellow gold with sparse carbonation and a loose and lasting, sudsy white head. Clean peppery hop nose with hints of lemon zest, wheat grain and pear drops. Prominant spicy hops on the palate. Light but firm bodied, grainy and dry, and fuelled by prickly carbonation. Ends crisp, bitter and dry with a pleasant herbal hop edge and residual, citrus peel notes. This is a great little quaffer. If this is a wholly DME lager then they’re doing it right. Went down very nicely indeed! (355mL can, BB 04/12/13, Dan Murphy’s Currambine)

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Another well-made bottom-fermented beer from these guys. A decent summery pils with enough hop character to set it above the average big-bottlo fridge junk. Straw-coloured with a shallow pall of suds. Nice, zesty aroma, not a million miles away from the Steam Ale. Lemon peel, Saaz (?), faint ginger. Bright, spritzy palate. Light and fruity up-front before a tasty bitterness. Sauvin hops from NZ? Faintly metallic, with a dry, herbal finish. Worth a repeat visit. (355ml can from D’Vine Cellars, Wenty Falls)

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can from DM. Pale and slightly hazy, generous white head. Aromas of pale malt, grass hint of citrus and hops. Quite a pleasant bitterness and a good example of this style.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can from Aeon Liquor poured into a tall Pilsner glass. L: a very pale straw with plenty of bubbles, almost champagne-like, but a fluffy big white head that leaves good lacing. S: that’s a nice aroma. I get white pepper up front, noble-style hops, some light grape, citrus, a little grassy, clean and clear bouquet. T: flavour is grassy malt, a light spice, citrus, not bad, falls away a bit quickly. A tad macro feeling, but with a nice lingering spice. F: a very distinct mouthfeel, creamy at the start, slightly sweet, light with a quick crisp dry finish. O: I’m more into this than their pale ale, also available in Japan. Goes down fine.

Pours a clear yellow with a frothy white head. Aroma is malt, citrus, spices and hops. Taste is light to medium sweet leading to a spicy and hoppy finish. Pretty good.

UPDATED: APR 11, 2015 From a can at 2013 Canberra Beer Festival. Nice hoppy/malty pilsner, Saaz hops obvious. An ok drop, slight metallic taste spoilt it a bit.
Re-rated Feb 2015: Pale straw/yellow, 1cm white head, biscuity malt and citrusy hop aromas, slightly sweet, earthy hop bitterness, light body, thin palate, dry bitter finish. Nice.
