On tap at Brewski. Rating from early May. Not bad not good but about middle ground. Looks okay but the flavour doesn’t quite hit the mark.

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2014 Tap at Old Faithful. Pours hazy golden with a firm white head. Nose is quite unique - very herbal with heavy citric zest and lemon myrtle. Taste is grassy and herbal with heavy citrus tang and stone fruits. Quite unique beer. Great balance between the herbal notes and citrus zest. I like it a lot

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Clear pale gold with a white head. Aroma of honeydew melon, tinned peaches, mandarins, grass, pine. Sweet with loads of peach, biscuit, some grass. Dryish with a spicy menthol and quite bitter finish but the sweetness still hangs around a tad. Probably would work better in summer. Didn’t do much for me but didn’t hate it.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
So, hopfen fahrt - a ride of hops hey!? Off we go! Sourish, fresh, garden in winter is the nose with lilies, nettles, lemonbalm, apple curd, and.., just, a lot more apple. Aroma is of a Scandinavian cider - wick.., er, weird! Yellow gold, shy of bright with a shortlived, wispy head. Strikingly phenolic, twiggy bark and clove, plastic and smoke on the palate. Light in body and yet far too tangy and cloying in the finish. Clammy and sickly poured by sour citrus fruit esters. Aftertaste of sawdust. Just did not enjoy this one. Had no idea what it was even trying to achieve. Bland. (33cL, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)

Pours amber with a fading head.
Nose shows spicy, herbal and floral hops with some grassy notes followed by some sweet biscuity malt.
Similar flavours, very herbal, grassy and spicy. Just a touch of malt underneath.

Tap at old faithful. Pours a clear orange with a white head. Nose is quite grassy/herbal with citrus notes and zest. Quite appealing. Taste is well balanced. Citric zest and herbal/clove spices backed a subtle grassy bitterness. Liked this one

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a 330ml bottle on 19/8/2014. Pours a clear very light golden with a bi bright head. Has a light passionfruit aroma. It’s a quite curious beast in the mouth, with apple and sweet and sour citrus fruit and some bready malt, but its soon overtaken by a big, very dry, chemical tasting bitterness. Has a medium body and lively carbonation. It has the makings of a good beer but the finish is just a bit harsh and disconcerting. Interesting but doesn’t quite pull it off.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured a cloudy golden colour with a two-finger white foamy head that retained very well but laced poorly. Carbonation high and coarse. Aroma with citrus/grapefruit, a hint of melon and some floral notes. Taste unusual with tarty grapefruit, spice and some sweetness. Light body. A lingering tartness on the finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a bottle. Pours cloudy amber, mild citrus and a definite grapefruit flavour with a resin feel. Good stuff.
