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.

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.

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.

Crisp, fresh taste, light but not watery. Would make an ideal summer beer, light on the palate, easy to drink. Recommended.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at The Empire, Fortitude valley, Brisbane. Poured a clear yellow gold colour with a thin white bubbly head that diminished quickly. Lacing was reasonably good to begin with but disappeared by part way through the glass. Low, if any, carbonation. Aroma malt sweetness but overall very subtle. Taste is subtly of semi-sweet malt initially but this fades quickly to a slight hops flavour. Light body. A smooth, crisp, light finish with a mild hops bitterness. OK but not spectacular.
