mullet (849) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 5, 2006

"Beer brewed by winemakers who love beer"? Hmmm... And then they call themselves a brewery despite blatantly not having a brewery. Double hmmm... Anyhow, itís filtered, gold with a pretty ugly head that doesnít last long. Aroma is rather weird - apple juice and lime cordial, reminiscent of Reddís Gold or Monteithís Radler. Itís quite offputting. Thereís also a bit of sulfury Czech yeast which would be really good if it were accompanied by malt or hop. Luckily it tastes pretty good. Round, soft, peachy malt, tangy Czech hops, sherbety tropical fruit. Not that hoppy or bitter, though. Itís a bit weird, but itís not far off being quite good. Also, the label says this is brewed at Australian Independent Brewers in NSW, not Mildura, but on the web itís mentioned that ALL (thatís their emphasis, not mine) the beers are brewed in Mildura. I entered it under Mildura for consistencyís sake.
