3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. From Tommy for Christmas. Pours a deep amber rather than golden colour. Small rocky head that feel away pretty quikcly. Some lacing. Sweet malt aromas with a little honey and some floarl hop notes. Flavours are biscuty malt with some home. A little hop initially with more hops and some bitterness near the end. Not too bad.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden. The aroma is woody, hoppy with a light malt toastiness. Light body and character with a mild, woody American hop accent, light fruitiness and chewy, slightly toasty malts.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle acquired in Phnom Penh. Dark golden amber, small head. Earthy hop aroma is also spicy. Quaffable and thirst-quenching. Herbal tea qualities. Tea leaves. Not special but good stuff.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear light amber colour. Passionfruit and fruit hop character. Fresh, clean flavour with good malt hop balance. I honestly don’t know what most of those below are describing, this is a good, hop driven summer ale that is way better than most Aussie beers.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 345ml. Good aroma, but light-bodied and too sweet for me. Aroma has grass, yeast, and also some caramel. The flavour is light and sweet, with just a touch of bitterness. Amber colour, with a thin white head that disappears. Palate is thin.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very fruity, but otherwise a bit of a miss. Another easy drinking Australian beer that does nothing to stimulate the senses.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
From can on a flight from Sydney to Cairns.
Golden amber pour with a reasonable creamy head leaving lots of lacing.
Floral hoppy aroma with a hint of citrus. Sweet clean malt backing.
Flavours are mostly clean malt with some toasty hints. Green hops shine through followed by a gentle bitterness. Nice flavours but finishes weakly.
Great creamy carbonation and body.
