Pours a good golden colour with a frothy white head that has good staying power. Aroma is sweet malt with notes of caramel and grass. Taste is also sweet malt with notes of caramel and grass leading to citrusy finish. Nice soft mouth feel. Ok.

Light carb, citrisy taste, slightly hoppy finish. Overall nothing special but pretty reasonable.

345mL poured into a 250mL Leffe glass. this beer was mildly malty, presenting a watery aroma, with suggestions of bread. the frothy soft meringue head sat amidst an amber sparkling appearance. the taste and palate were light, slim and moderately bitter. a refreshing, summery finish.

Bottle 33 cl, local Melbourne supermarket. Pours clear dark golden with a steady white head. Aroma is very malty, sweet, citric, fruity, caramel and hoppy. Flavor is sweet, a bit acidy, malty, citric and slightly hoppy bitter. Finishes bitter, dry and fruity.

Much better beer on tap. Packaged version very light. Has the high citrus taste but finishes with home brew after taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This was another one of the beers that started me on a path to the craft beer market. It has nice subtle tropical fruit aroma and flavour and a ok malt backing. Overall not a great beer but good for those new to beer.

Obviously it pours golden - big white head on top. Not too shabby on the nose. Appealing fruits and honey/caramel malts. Quite malty in the taste with a hint of honey and light fruits. A big hit at the pub although it is a very filling beer

A decent beer, as you’d expect from the Squire brand. It’s a clean and crisp affair, packed with hops, malt and the promised (on the label) tropical fruity aromas. Rather nice.

Westmeister (2129) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 3, 2011
Draft. Poured a golden orange/yellow with a decent white head and excepional lacing throughout. Smell was of light citrus hops and a good malt backing. The taste was well rounded with a very hop forward (yet subdued) hop profile. This was a very balanced brew. In comparison to the other Australian macros, this one is the best of the bunch. Very sessionable and very refreshing.

Golden with loosly packed white foam, light toasty aroma with tropical fruit and citrus accents. Full flavoured ale and fruity on the palate with light sweetness.
