cloudy golden amber color, little to no head. Yeasty, almost Belgian character. An unusual, complex flavor. I’ll have to try this one again.

I like this shit a whole lot. Its a little stronger than regular Aussie brew, 5.8%, and the lovely sweet taste lures you home for a beer or two at lunch-time. This is the good shit for sure: goes down like a rasberry cordial. A great beer to get you lucky with the ladies. cause my rhymes makes dollars plus they makes sense.

Medium gold color (cloudy), small head. A medium bodied ale, light and refreshing. Mild and smooth malts, mild hop bite. Champagne yeast added to bottle for natural soft carbonation. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is smooth and dry. Aftertaste has a slight bite, malty and slightly bitter. Interesting beer, Nice taste.

It sparkles briefly when the yeast is mixed in, and tastes like a cross between a lager and a wheat beer. I quite enjoyed mine, and felt it to be an extremely well made beer deserving of its repuation as a world class beer, and the best beer from Australia. But it’s not my style really, so I wouldn’t rate it that highly; though I can imagine lovers of blonde beer rating it much higher.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy, did not achieve a very good head. (Although description states ’solid head’. PLeasant taste - slightly hoppy bitterness, followed by very smooth after taste. Slight but very very slight fruit taste. I will have to eventually re-rate this one.

Faint hazy brown and a small splodge of beige sediment under a chunky bubbled cream coloured head. Faint green fruit and woody hops aroma when cold, moving to stronger bubblegum and caramel aroma as it warms. Medium to light body with thin lowly carbonated British Pub ale mouthfeel. Start is medium fruity and light bitter flavoured. Middle is soft fruity hops fading slowly to a thin textured faintly sweetish bubblegummy finish and aftertaste. Interesting but somehow I was expecting a little more.

A very nice, refreshing ale. My favourite from the Coopers stable. Goes down a treat on a hot day.

A very nice change of pace from the cartlon family of beers in australia - aroma has hints of wheat and fruit, refreshing.
