3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
345ml bottle. Lives up to its golden name with a clear golden amber colour and a white head that laces the glass. Quite clear in the glass with some rockmelon and peach aromas. Easy drinking lager but nothing to get too excited about.

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

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

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

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.
