3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Almost as good as a lager can get, and certainly the best Australian beer I have been luck enough to find. Hazy pale gold to green ... doesn’t look like a lager but it looks promising. Nose of grass, sure, but also of grapefruit and sweet and sour complexity ... doesn’t smell like a lager, but promising. Taste is more complex, more sweet, more grapefruit, more bitter than a lager, but really tasty. So ... do we penalize the rating for deviationism, or reward them for tasty beer? Tasty wins out.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours yellow, golden color with a minimal head. True: Smells like a fruity white wine. also picking up some floral notes. Sweet, bready taste with a smooth finish. Carbonation is a bit low. Surely not a ordinary lager, but not quite my style. Does’t mean it’s not good.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2014 Smells like a Savignon Blanc wine! A lovely, flavoursome lager - probably the best Australian lager I’ve had. Slightly sweet, little bitterness, pale yellow, little head. Would benefit from a little more acid. A great showcase for the Nelson sauvin hops.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Light clear gold with quick-thinning head. Complex aromas of lemon, limestone, raw peach, honeydew melon and the florist just before you sneeze - jeez you’d think you’re quaffing some NZ suavignon blanc here - but I guess that’s the idea. Clean no fuss pilsnerish malt carries it all and vibrant carbonation makes you think you swapped the sav blanc for champagne and a giggle. Someone has just mowed their lawn and you like it. Sweetish finish of lemon and hay. Bastard child of a lager Mum and errant wino Dad creates a confused but happy lovechild. Who you can drink.

From a bottle. Pours clear gold, tiny white head, lingering rich flavours and mild bitterness. Not bad at all.

Light and Floral on the nose but has a robust body that is full of flavor! Pale on the pour, taste is a highlight. One of my favorite lagers.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very pale, almost see through. But good head that keeps fresh. Got malt in aroma with fruity smell. Clean on front of tongue but crispness in the finish. Quite tangy for a lager. Good in short session. A bit high in alcohol.
