Malt sweet fruit aroma with ice cream vanilla. Murky amber colour with no head or lacing. Sweet fruit flavour with sour aftertate. Fizzy palate.

Bottle from Purvis Cellars - not branded as a lager on the bottle, and also ABV is 5.5 not 6.5 in the bottle. Very lemony nose. Pours cloudy with way too much sediment for my taste - perhaps I should have anticipated that one and poured more carefully though. The flavour is interesting - plenty of fruit (melon, kiwi, grapefruit) and an underpinning bitterness. There’s a hint of sour yeastiness dancing round the edges of it from the bottle conditioning that does it no favours. I think I’d mark this beer and this brewery down as ’one to watch’ rather than a finished product.

Tasted awhile back now, slow to catch up on the old ratings. Tasted batches since and, with a few variables evident, I think Graeme’s now got this one down pat!
On draught at the brewery. Pours a bright, tawny copper with a nice even flow of fine carbonation. Head was frothy, dense and managed to stick around legging it well. Dry, wholemeal bread and gritty deep malts base the aroma with an odd note of fresh squeezed lemon tickling late. Big, aggressive and rich toasted malts in the mouth. Nice peppery spice envelopes it. Medium-light body, smooth in back, prickly upfront. Smoky, yeasty, vegemite-like backdrop and long linger. Nice deep malty swallow, slightly nutty and salty. Quite heavy at its best, not much for session material though it does draw on the saliva glands. Very nice otherwise, let’s hope the boys in Kal’ pick up on this classic lager.

Went out to Ironbark brewery for the first time today. Never knew it existed until a few weeks ago. I must say I was very impressed with this lager. Smooth, clean and easy to drink. Had a lovely honey aroma and taste. It wasn’t overpowering like the Vienna I tried afterwards. My only criticism would be the flat looking appearance. Even my partner who is not normally a beer drinker loved this one. I could drink these all day. Well done to the friendly folk at Ironbark. They do a great woodfired pizza too!! (15/10/06)

They billed this one as a strong pilsener style. Well they were kidding, apart from the alcohol content it wasn’t very strong in any department at all. They have improved and renovated the premises somewhat but they really need to work on the beers.
