2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy dishwater brown appearance. Minimal white fizzy head. Fruity and yeasty aroma. Mostly yeasty flavour with a nutty bitter finish. Dry and prickly mouthfeel.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Safeway, Rubery, Birmingham. After pouring most of this, I read the bottle which suggested care was needed to avoid disturbing the sediment - doh! Any way, after leaving the poured drink for about 15 mins, I could see a lot of the small particles congregated at the bottom, and set off on the rate. Looks just like a Hefeweizen, but with a smaller, snowy white head. Retains a very lagery taste, but with extra lemon and milkiness. Not as dramatic as I expected. Soft in the beginning, adding some clarity in the middle, before a slightly grainy, dryish finish. A slight let down.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Quite disappointing. Little aroma and little flavour of any character. Cloudy orange colour. The beer is clean and has a reasonable alcohol taste, but there just is not enough character and it is almost too safe.

Very mild, not much flavor to speak of. Hints of roasted malt, maybe a slight, sweet fruit flavor.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep golden/pale amber colour with a cloudy appearance. Nice aroma with a fruity acidity (apples, peach). Flavour is malty and somewhat fruity (banana) ending in a refreshing finish. Not a great beer but by far the best Australian beer, I have sampled so far. Note: Pouring the entire beer seems advisable.

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.
