with the name i thought it was going to be a hop bomb. aka ipa style labelled as a lager. but this was well balanced. great amber colour. restrained hops allowing aroma and flavour to come through, without being hash. bitter and overbearing. perfect summer beer

On tap at Cookie. Great, very original pale lager. Aroma of fresh mint, grass, and some dry fruit. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness, and average length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Dark yellow, with a frothy head.

ALLOVATE (2467) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 20, 2012
Cap needed little effort to come loose and then jettison across the room. Pours fiercely; the chaos of carbonation raises the foam a good inch out the glass like a plume. The bitter, pineforest froth needed to be spooned off. The body of beer that perfect shade of sparkling orange amber that just screams ’Drink me!’ So fresh, so clean is the Summery waft from the glass. A virtual tropical fruit punch including grapefruit, lychee, honeydew and sweet cantaloupe with well defined herbal bitterness underneath. Much drier than anticipated on the palate with a pleasant, summery malt base and hint of oat cookies and soft honey. Bitter, crisp finish with plenty rolling around in the swallow. Very piney and camphorous in between with a herbal, lavender and elderflower note and bitter, tight fruit like grapefruit and orange zest. Body is light with moderate carbonation but not too much as to dull the wonderful mix of malt and hop. Again, like the aroma, this one is clean as a whistle (something I dread when I see the word Lager on a label) Really was not expecting a cracker of a beer, but here it is. Two thumbs up. A delicious Lager!! (33cL, Bottled 12/11/12, Mane Liquor, Belmont)

mkel07 (3665) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JAN 10, 2013
330ml bottle from Slow Beer. A very strong golden amber colour for a pale lager and also has a big frothy head. If only all pale lagers looked this good instead of the thin clear looking beer you normally get. Passionfruit aroma fills the nose and the beer is full and smooth in the mouth with an easy drinking flavour. Perfect beer for this scorching hot day.

This beer is most certainly the best Australian lager style by a long shot. Great summer drinking.

maneliquor (3251) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 21, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Is there a better Aussie lager? Very clean and very fresh. Great hop presence. A seriously good lager and stands up to great versions of the style from all over the world
Earlier Rating: 12/14/2012 Total Score: 3.9
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours vibrant orange with a two finger fluffy white head. Nose has a fair bit of summer driven fruits in it with biscuity malt behind it all. A touch of grain and grass too. Nice and balanced. Taste is backed by biscuit malts. Shows fruit driven hops with a fair bit of hop bitterness to finish off. Slightly floral. Very balanced. Carbonation is a little high for m liking though but works well for a lager. Good, solid stuff

HopRedHead (393) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 30, 2013
Tap at Mane Liquor. Pours a bright gold colour with 2cm of head. Citrus fruit and pine hoppiness in the aroma, with a nice malt sweetness. Smells like a well balanced pale ale. Taste is really clean: hoppy, tropical fruits with a malty caramel sweetness. Really refreshing and crisp, well balanced pale lager. think I’ll be taking a growler home.

Dervock (503) - Emu plains, AUSTRALIA - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle - pours orange gold with a small white head. mixture of marmalade and biscuit aroma. Taste is a smooth creamy sweet malt and a dry not to bitter hop finish. nice mouthfeel. Excellent example of how good a pale larger could be.

Bottle from mane liquor. Pours a nice golden with a foamy white head. Nose has floral hops and tropical fruits in there with some biscuit in there. Taste is super clean. Hints of tropical fruits, grapefruit dominant and floral grassy hops. Biscuit comes into play too. Soo easy to drink. Good session beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
