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 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours pale straw with a nice floral aroma. The taste is something really different from what I’ve experienced with other beers. The savion hops bring a white wine taste along with floral and fruity notes, quite nice! The only real let down for me was it is over carbonated for my liking. Quite fizzy... Overall, I would happily have it again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a crystal clear pale straw gold with a good head of white foam. The aroma shows nice sauvin white grape, biscuity lager malt, a hint of general fruitiness. The taste is very clean, grainy, fruity hop. It’s light on the feel, but flavour alludes to a higher than average ABV. It’s crisp and refreshing, not too dry, nicely carbonated. Great lager.

Bottle. Pale. Weird large bubble thin head that does not last. Hazy straw color. Nice fruity floral aroma. Floral taste. Notes of lemon and passionfruit. Slightly tart. Decent.

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.
