Is there any worse crime in the beer world? Trail blazing craft brewer sells to a major (nothing wrong with that) but fails, progressively, to maintain its rep and instead gets good at churning out bland beer. How about some respect for the brand and reputation? This is styled as a golden but it might as well be a low carb PL. No flavours to speak of, just the faintest nip of honey and Asahi-like dry finish.

345mL bottle BB 12/12/14 Pours a clear gold body, course bead lending to a soapy sort of small head. Aroma is reasonable with grainy malt & floral hops notable. Medium bodied, somewhat short on the finish, tad soapy with a moderate carbonation. Body is pretty simple with husky cereal malts and touch of hop spice leading to a soft bitterness to finish. Relatively clean, perhaps a touch metallic/minerally as it warms (which it’s probably not designed for, I’m guessing) Non-offensive, a step above the vast norm it has to be said.

Nothing much to report on this one. Average lager with some slightly off honey like flavour coming through? Easily drinkable as a lager should be.

Tap @ the SCG. Light gold with good head and lacing. An enjoyable, refreshing lager with some decent mark and hop flavours considering Matilda Bay is just a big dog masquerading as a craft brewer.

From a bottle. Pours clear golden colour with a tiny white head, not much happening in the aroma department, flavour is a bit mild too, lingering bitterness, quite smooth though.

on tap at the breakers in wamberal for about the same price as their excellent steak. clear golden with a thin head; aroma of peanut skin; thin; faint caramel and some tinny bitterness. hardly worth finishing

Poured watery clear orange, thin short lasting head. Passionfruit dominates tropical fruit aroma. Clean bitterness (nail polish remover?), continues through to finish. Thin bodied, well carbonated mouth-feel. Overall, think they just created a beer for the clever name.

Trev1979 (3) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 17, 2013 does not count
Crisp, fresh taste, light but not watery. Would make an ideal summer beer, light on the palate, easy to drink. Recommended.

Slight citrus aroma. Taste was of a malty biscuit. Tasted on draught at the Mary Ellen in Newcastle, NSW.
