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

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.

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.

Nearly no head... Very fruity aroma... Pretty much a standard beer... Easy to enjoy on a hot summers day

Bloody lovely, If someone wants to know what Australian beer tastes like, give them one of these, but not too cold. Naturally cloudy with tasty yeast surprises at the bottom, it's hearty without the associated pain.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
2003 bottle. Appearance of a chilled chardonnay; hazy, pale golden-yellow with some light green tinges. Medium sized white head. Smells of light, mildly sour hops, light lemon-orange, touch of ripe pear and a bit of yeast. Begins very dry and papery tasting. No sweetness whatsoever. I was beginning to give up, but as I let it warm, there was a chewy, fruity sweetness, slightly fuzzy on the palate. Flavor blossomed in to chewy dry barley flavor and sour/bitter hops. Medium-light bodied. Lively carbonation. Rated against other styles: not so good. Rated against other blondes: top tier.
