Formerly known as Spruiker's Challenge Dutch Courage Brew
Delicate hop flower aromas precede a palate so light, crisp and balanced that it’s often mistaken for a pilsner.

hank37 (140) - banksia grove, AUSTRALIA - DEC 21, 2014
Light, almost typical macro-lager aromas, but a surprisingly dense, malty beer with hints of the promised lemon sorbet coming through. easily smashable, dependent on price/24.

Sevenlee (1451) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - MAR 10, 2013
Pours a yellow colour with a white head. Aroma is malt, fruit,citrus and some spices. Taste is light sweet leading to a moderate bitter and spicey finish. Ok

Pale yellow clear poor. Slight white head tat laces the glass really well. Taste is thin and watery but refreshing. Nice lively carbonation. There is a really nice slight gentle sweetness to the beverage.

Tap @ Raffles. Love that this is always a regular at Raffles. Great sessionable, well balanced beer. Fruity hops and some pepperness with the perfect amount of carbonation. Very good

Tap @ Cookie. Good stuff. Light. crisp but shows reasonable weight for the style. Lots of pepper, slate and pepper, leaving you in no doubt as to the style.

Possibly the best off the Colonial ranks so far so I’d have to agree with Duffman and say ’well done!’. Tasted from the bottle into a stumpy tulip glass. Very lightly hazy, pale yellow-gold body with intermittent fine carbonation raising up a dense snow-white head of foam that stuck around for the length and left trails of lace in its wake. Juicy, spicy and summery cantaloupe, passion-fruit and pear nose with a light hint of doughy malt that made it even more inviting. Soft and smooth in mouthfeel. Lightly prickly in carbonation and as juicy as the aroma. Fruits dominate the palate; pears, passion-fruit, mandarins, cantaloupe and other summer delights mingle and linger in the mouth even long after the swallow. Grassy, lightly bitter hops come in late and finish it off nicely. The gentlest piney, woody note is in there also, a similar trait I noticed in their ’Pistol Whip’ Bitter. Beautifully balanced thirst quencher that had the long hot summers of Oz beat. I honestly liked this one so I think I’ll have another!!! (33cL, bottling date unknown)
