COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A light bodied beer with bright straw yellow hue. Holding a tall white head this beer is like dew from a forest giant, the Silvertop Ash. Supple malt flavours that hint at vanilla and apricot are balanced by a gentle bitterness and aromatic hopy nose. Silvertop Ale pours clear from the bottle, use a glass and leave the yeast behind. We let malt, Otways water, hops and yeast do all the work, you won’t find any preservatives in here. Best served cold and enjoyed whilst fresh.

hawthorne00 (2448) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 19, 2014
Bottle. Gold with a fading white head. Aroma of hay, spices, a little peach, lemon. Lightish-bodied but mouthfilling, quite lively carbonation. Slightly sweet, quite fruity, firm lemony and spicy bitterness. Dry and a little astringent at the end. Solid drop, smashable with some class.

Hazy yellow gold, light gas, creamy and slightly oily mouth feel. Persistent head. High hoppy flavour with clear citrus tones. Clean tasting and quaffable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Maris (990) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - OCT 1, 2013
From a 500ml bottle on 1/10/2013. pours a cloudy straw colour with a small head. Has a slightly odd pungest, yeasty aroma with some citrus notes. Flavour wise, it’s a touch tart with lemon, a fair bit of apple cider, and a bit of cordial in the mix. Has a fullish body and modest carbonation. I’m not sure why this has been classified as a pale lager, though I’m not sure what it’s meant to be. Just kinda weird, and doesn’t really work for me.

Stew41 (1736) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - FEB 19, 2012
Disappointingly ’commercial’ might be the best way to describe this beer. Some faint applause for the lowish ABV but otherwise a beer that shows boring Super Dry like tendencies. Some orange peel on the nose but otherwise very bland and slightly sticky with a sweet corny finish. Might appeal to the rank and file.
