3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Rolled and pours cloudy orange gold with decent fluffy off white head and good lace. Aromas of bread, dough, pears, herbs, grains and a light malt sweetness. Medium light body, herbal, lightly tart character a good bitterness balanced with a malt sweetness. Refreshing, tasty and iconically and characteristicly Australian, finishing with a good hint of POR and zesty carbonation.

One breeze of wind from oz. Like someone diving with equipment in the glass. Bubbles and sand everywhere. Taste is interesting mix of fruity garden mixed with walk on the grass.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Found a bottle in de Bierschuur in Poppel. The beer is gold/yellow colored a pours a small white head, with average carbonation. The aroma is a mixture of hops, malts and yeast notes, but also the sweetness of different fruits is noticable. The taste is medium bodied, light bitter and spicy, but overall it´s a little watery. Though the taste is very refreshing which is good for a warm country like Australia. The finish is light bitter and refreshing.

3.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle into pint glass. Light malt/acidic nose. Cloudy golden beer with solid two finger head. Nice lightly spritzy mouthfeel, good bitterness. Finish develops through sharp bitterness to floral notes,even a little bubblegum, then back to a slightly lingering citric end. One of Australia’s great beers.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
375ml bottle (rolled before serving). Pours cloudy light golden with an ample loose white head. Aroma and flavour is light bready malts with subtle fruity hops and a trace of yeasty spiciness. Palate is spritely and refreshing with a medium body and light bitterness to the finish. Does it job nicely. It’s longevity and importance as a gateway beer for further investigation of craft brews in Australia should not be underestimated.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle at Tops in Tallinn. Coppery colour, hazy, practically no head. Loads of bubbling going on still after a while. Nose is caramel, lemonade, floral hops. Taste is overall caramelly, sweet malts in the front and harsh herbal kind of bitterness in the finish. Wouldn’t say it’s balanced. Carbonation very intense. An easy drinker but not a very enjoyable one.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Woody’s in Kingston, don’t know why I’ve never had it before. Well carbonated, good floral aroma, pleasantly hopped but not to a great strength. Nice enough beer.
