3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2004 Is it stale? Current bottle poured and there are tiny round balls of sediment floating in the glass. Kind of cute, but kind of a jello look to it. Still, a nice aroma with a trace of fruitiness and a smooth, refreshing taste. Nice on a hot day, but watch for the floaters.

Golden color, lots of "floaties" with darker sediment settling on the bottom of the glass. Soft and flowery with a light rounded malty taste. Crisp on the palate.

Appearance is somewhat interesting. Lots of floaties in a pleasent golden color with a rapidly fading egg white head. Aroma is flowery with light malt and a bit of yeast. Flavor is lightly hoppy with a nice spicy dry finish. Pretty tasty.

Clopudy golden with a small head. Sour banana and grassiness in the nose; Bitter and coppery in the mouth, with no distinct flavors jumping out. Mouth is nice, crisp, and bubbly.

Aroma has hops and fresh cut grass. Cloudy orange. Some fruit followed by quite a nice long bitter. An okay beer.

This is actually a pretty tasty light ale. Light and a little on the spritzy side. Pours a bit cloudy since this apparently isn't a filtered beer. Nice, soft, spring-like fruitiness reminding me mostly of melons an pears. If it was a little cheaper, I'd consider this a great summer beer as it's got a little taste, but is nice and crisp.

Glad to see there is some australian breweries left that dont beleive in cold filtration. A cloudy appearance but strong taste and high alcohol content make this a quality beer

2.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I tasted this out of a bottle that might have had some age on it - over a year old at least. Not much nose at all, if any. Little or no head retention. Reminded me of an American megabrew in that regard. Taste wasn't ay all unpleasant. I enjoyed it more the farther along we went. An Aussie lawnmower beer maybe? I did like the flavor.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very malty and also some nice sweetness from this cloudy offering. Very nice overall with some fruity flavour and nice hops.
I found that it was hard to drink more than a couple at a time because I found it a tad heavy. Still, overall very nice.

Amber coloured. Lots of chunks in it. Quite thin and boring. Too much carbonation.
