mkel07 (4943) - 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.

jonno (2442) - JAPAN - JUL 28, 2012
Tap. Listed at 5.6% and certainly not from cask. Rich, full and fruity. Lots of berries, grapefruit and a touch of tropical fruit. Really full - if a bit heavy handed. Well made and certainly recommended.

Ernest (7217) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 26, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is dark yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted bread, cookie), lightly hoppy (herbs, flowers), lightly yeasty (dough), with a note of Meyer lemon, light note of butter. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety/watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Basically a richer version of the Golden, but while the aroma is attractive it’s pretty quiet. Wonderful balance in the mouth, neither too sweet or too dry for its size, very clean and flavorful. As enjoyable as the Golden, but the Native Storm is the clear winner among the three.
