2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours pale gold, hazy, with a very brief head giving a little lace at the top of a pilsner glass, but disappearing completely before halfway. The nose and palate are all about malt-- VERY malty, almost vegemite in character. Enjoyable, but one-dimensional.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
A hazy orange beer with a disappearing white head. The aroma is malty and slighlty sour, while the flavor is sweet malty and slighty hoppy. Boring.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
A hazy golden beer with a white head. Sharp buttery and citrusy aroma. Rancid malt flavor with butter notes. Quite sweet with a sour tone of infection behind the sweetness. Not very good.

Yellow coloured. Slightly hazy. Very boring and watery. Actually artificial too. Seems a bit too old. Flower aroma.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
By no means the best beer in the Grand Ridge range but a decent stab at a pilsenser. It looks great. Lemony gold, with a formidable head. Light, zesty Saaz characters in the nose. Refreshing and very clean on the tongue. Decent slug of hops in the finish. Some strong tea-like characters - in fact, tea with lemon. (Bottle)

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
The appearance, yet again, was really nice, a bright golden colour, with a thick ice cream style head, it looked like a nice pilsner. The aroma was a little off, a bit of a resinous hoppy character, and something else that shouldn’t have been there, I’m not sure exactly what it was, but there was something a bit out. To drink it was rather lacking, the resinous hops carried through, as well as the something else; it tasted like a boring Australian lager really, with a dash of hops thrown in. Yet again the beer fell short of really achieving, well anything really.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light golden orange, a little hazy. Roasted, almost toffee notes on the nose, from the malt. Quite sweet but very enticing. Light mouthfeel, some faint floral, sweet notes, but a little generic or larger like. Like other TN’s below needs more hop kick.
