mkel07 (3556) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 30, 2012
500ml bottle. There is a mixture of malt and melon fruit on the aroma which is pleasant enough. Beer looks strong in the glass with a deep amber colour and a sturdy cap of foam. Sits in the mouth well and finishes with a bit of a metallic edge on the palate.

hawthorne00 (2472) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 20, 2012
Bottle, 8C. Gold with a modest white head. Fruity aroma of oranges, grapefruit, light biscuit. Bittersweet - a little sugary with oranges and some biscuity malt, pleasant bitter finish with grapefruit, some pine and herbs. The malt side is sweet and light, but there’s enough character there to complement the bitter citrus without just being sweet. Refreshing and tasty enough.
