3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle) Slightly hazy golden amber with small white head. Lovely aroma of stone fruit with toasty, pine and citrus notes. Light body with good carbonation. Excellent taste with a complex mix of toasty malt, spice, stone fruit to start with, developing some very pleasant bitterness for a long finish. An excellent beer, but does not seem to fit the style of "lager", but I guess they call it "Australian Lager" on the label.

Nice transparency, good colour, very course and short head that doesn't last. Strong hop aroma for a lager indicative of dry hopping. Very light body with strong lingering hop bitterness. Maybe a little too bitter for my liking.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330mL bottle from Beer Cartel. BB 16/05/15
Hazy golden body, holds a firm white head.
Pleasant aroma; toasty, slightly honeyed malt, subtle citrus, floral, slightly tropical fruity hops.
Medium bodied, subdued carbonation, smooth & quite crisp.
Good flavour - citrus, stonefruit, almost watermelon-like hop character well balanced with biscuity, toasty malt sweetness. Moderate bitterness, reasonably clean finish.
Tremendously good lager - drinks like an APA with a clean finish.

On tap at Tom Taylors. Floral, floral, floral. That’s the aroma, the taste and the overall vibe of this lager. It’s a great take on this typically tired and unadventurous staple. It forces one to recontemplate the beer style and life more generally. It’s cool and it’s hoppy, but without any jarring bitterness.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle. Clear deep golden with average white head. Nose is certainly hoppier than most pale lagers with notes of citrus, white peppers and passionfruit on top of a honeyish grainy malt bill. Palate is well balanced malt and hops with a lightly spicy bitter finish. Medium bodied with a slick texture and moderate carbonation. Overall a pretty good session lager.
