COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Imagine a world without flavour. It’d be almost as bad as a world without beer. Well you’re in luck. This lager is literally bursting with hop-fueled taste. It’s been created by people inspired and obsessed with keeping the flame alive. Enjoy our handiwork.

Pyobon (862) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 11, 2012
(500ml bottle) Poured clear pale amber with nice off-white head. Nice but subtle aroma from the hops - floral, pineapple. Medium body with good carbonation. Hops dominate the flavour from start to finish. There’s very little else left in the flavour except at the start perhaps some lemony notes. However the hop flavours do evolve, ending with a good assertive bitterness that is not very long lasting. Overall a very hop dominated beer and somewhat unbalanced, but still very drinkable.

ndon (857) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2010
Pale lager that pours a pale yellow colour, with a white head that lasts. Not as good as Epic’s other beers, but a good place to start

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 4, 2008
Tasted 04/05/2008. 330ml bottle from New World, Thorndon. Pours a bright yellow gold with a thinning creamy white head. Delightfully fresh, zingy herbal hop aroma has a hint of floral note. A little cornflour malt character on the nose too. Very clean. Superbly fresh! A little sweet aroma of biscuit dough malt at the bottom of the glass. The first few sips are bursting with that herbal hop flavour. Very clean malt character supporting. Medium bitterness. Stops short. Spot on carbonation and weight. Pretty good recipe, great execution (wouldn’t expect less from Epic). In then end, like an amped up Stella (a beer I do like), it feels like it needs a little less hop flavour and/or a more assertive bitterness. I’d have preferred to see Epic Brown Ale than a green-bottled premium but I’m not the target market and this is a pretty solid addition to the family.

jonnyguns (800) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 14, 2013
Bottle from mane liquor. Drunk from the stubby. Aromas of biscuit malts and subtle grapefruit/tropical hops. Pleasant light fruity smell. Taste is really easy going. Nice blend of caramel sweetness to go with the biscuit malts and light tropical fruit presence. Nice session beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

minch25 (577) - Medford, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 23, 2010
clear light pale yellow body, medium white head. Grassy herbal Saazish aroma. Very tasty. Light body, very drinkable, dry bready pale malts, moderately spicy hopping. This beer is probably way under the radar, but definitely worth drinking. Only downside is the price.

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2009 Brand new beer on tap at the Malthouse. Pours a nice gold. Hops come through nicely but do not dominate, with a hint of fruit before. Very similar to Epic Pale Ale only easier to drink and much less malty. Very nice.

Thin looking pale yellow with a lasting white head. Floral passionfruit & sweet malty aromas. Thin meduim body with good carbonation. Dry hop finish. Pretty good pale lager.

stoutnick (390) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUL 24, 2013
A decent lager here. Nice malt hop aroma. Taste Is fruity, tangy with a mild toffee sweetness. Not crisp or refreshing, but full flavoured for a lager.

A nice enough brew (that is handily eclipsed by many of its Epic brethren).
