UPDATED: SEP 30, 2011 Bottle 330ml, 2010 version. Great beer, very well balanced. Aromas of grass, citrus, and caramel. Taste is nicely bitter, with sweet notes, some acidity, and very long length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Amber colour, cloudy, with a thin frothy head.

The hop bitterness is just right, a little spicey mixed with resin. The finish is just long enough to enjoy without overpowering any food you are eating. Aroma is freshly crushed herbs and where the malt is most noticeable. Great with chilli con carne or olive and cheese. Mouth felt clean but not too dry afterward.

Maris (969) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - DEC 23, 2011
From a 330ml bottle on 23/12/2011. Pours a murky golden/copper with a big head. Has a tremendous, powerful aroma of passionfruit and mango. The flavour is not quite as big, but still very nice. You get sweet fruit (peach, orange and more mango), some caramel malt, and a decent, though not over the top, grapefruity hop finish. Ive found Bridge Road beers generally disappointing but this one is excellent (as is their Stella single hop).

Bif (1392) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 14, 2013
Pours a cloudy dark copper color with a good off-white head that fades slowly to nice lacing. Aroma of grapefruit with a hint of pine, fresh grain and a bit of malt sweetness in the background. Taste of grapefruit with a bit of pine. Light caramel sweetness with fresh grain. Good bitterness and a clean finish. Medium body, crisp, clean and refreshing. Nicely balanced. This beer hit the spot. well worth a try.

There might be one hop but the Cascade has a kick. Grassy first on the nostrils but has taste of orange. Hops give it nice edge. Grapefruit and malt pushing its way through. A sugar burst 3/4 through. Lot of remembrance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RyansRatings (43) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 17, 2010
Ill start with a few words of advice, that really should be on the packaging - this beer is unfiltered, and is best served by pouring 4/5 into a glass, then swooshing the bottle around to stir up the sediment and to form a head. Then, youre greeted by a murky amber gold, with thin tan foam. Smells wonderful; Passionfruit, elderflower, guava, cassis. Honey and caramel above wattle & lemon myrtle on the palate, before the hops take the reins and drive the long, floral, dry and spicy finish. A big step towards redemption, both in style & execution. Just gets better and better as it warms up.
