2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours pale and cloudy with visible colloidal yeast and little head. Aromas of fruit (pears?) and yeast dominate. Palate is mildly hopped and fruity with a slightly bittersweet finish. Certainly unique. After polishing off a whole carton of these with a buddy, I had the worst hangover I’ve had in a long time-- could histamines associated with the yeast play a role? Or maybe I’m just getting old.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Thin white head, cloudy blonde color, with
lot of floaties (sediment). Malty, and slightly hoppy in nose,
perhaps even somewhat yeasty. Flavor is malty, sour, and
a bit yeasty in the end. Disappointing flavor, but perhaps
mine is really old. A bit of hops in finish, kind of like an ESB would

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Blonde in colour and somewhat cloudy. Loads of fruit on the nose, along with some lighter malt notes. There’s a bit of grassy hop flavors, with more fruit flavors which seem to throw everything out of wack. A fair amount of bitterness in there too. It tastes more like a lager gone wrong rather than an ale.

1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Poured clear then bacame a cloudy pale gold with a low white head. The nose had a light fruitiness with some malt sweetness. The flavor started with some slight grassy bittering, a light fruitiness and a dry bread flavor.The finish was dry with hard grassy bitters and the body was medium to light. This beer from Down Under blows Dingos. It will now go ’Down Under’ my kitchen sink as it splashes down the drain.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Cloudy orange colour. Small, but firm head. Fruity, yeasty aroma woth some caramel in there. Yeasty, fruity, slightly caramelly flavour. Notes of pepper and citrus fruits. Medium bitter and hoppy finish. The mouthfeel is slightly smooth. I like it. Its taste somewhat reminded me of Vormanns Doppel Bock, especially the peppery notes.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12.7oz bottle, best before 21.07.06. Served around 46.5° in my NB worthy glass. Pours copper orange with a 1/2" head, plenty of streaming, small-bubbled carbonation, and a slew of ground pepper sized floaties that quickly find their way to the bottom of the glass. The aroma is yeasty with a hint of fruit, smells more like champagne. The flavor is somewhat yeasty at first, then more yeasty, biscuty (american biscuts), a little peppery, lemony, with a mildly bitterish finish. Ho-hum.
