3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Murky orange with visible sediment... defnitely not "sparkling". Fresh spice and fruit aroma. Creamy mouthfeel. Hints of banana, fruit, spice, citrus with a slighly bitter, yet clean finish. Defintely tasty, and an easy drinker. I liked it!

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Head is small, fizzy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is murky medium yellow, almost like a wheat beer. Aroma is lightly hoppy (flowers)and. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic and slightly bitter. Finish is decent with a watery texture and lively carbonation. Not much aroma. If someone put this infront of me while I was blindfolded it would take me a few guesses to determine the style, perhaps thats what makes this beer good but nothing near great.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Hazy light amber colour with a small, ver brief head. No lacing. Aroma of sweet malt combined with some grassy and slightly foral hops notes. Flavour was a bit watery with malt dominating, some very faint rockmelon notes, and a soft bitterness on the end. Natural carbonation which is nice. Light body. A nice beer but no real complexity.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Sold to me with a knowing smile and they were right; given that my only other Aussie beer experience has been Fosters/XXXX this is not so much a different league as a different game on a different planet.
Looks fantastic, opaque gold with a lively carbonation albeit little head to show for it. Whiff of fresh dough, tingles in the mouth with a citrusy/sour taste, bitterish aftertaste, all round good stuff.

This is a golden colored beer with quite a bit of floating particles throughout. Hard to make out much of an aroma, maybe some citrus. Smooth, almost creamy with a soft touch of nicely balanced malt and citrus flavors. This is a quality beer.

3.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Nice flavour, good colour, lots of sediment in the bottle. Not much of an aroma but an excellent beer on the whole

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle Conditioned. So, this is farily malty, perhaps a bit fruity. But virtualy no hops or flavour. Uninspiring.

You can go past a coopers on tap! Mirky cloudy beer. Fruity almost foresty flavour. Some bitterness.
