This is a beer that you will drink in place of your (now out of stock) smoked beef jerky.
The aroma is fairly subtle, but the smokey taste is quite unique to any beer I've yet tried. Nowhere is there a hint of sweetness (which I also like), and I almost wish it were 'chewable'. I'd say that the taste of this beer would totally overshadow any meat consumed.
Nice dry aftertaste also. Break out the jerky (or biltong if you're from South Africa)!

A different taste compared to alot of australian brews. Not being a big stout drinking i find myself comparing to guiness and other such drops. Smooth and rich and most disirable after a red meat meal.

Um, just had this on tap at the Townie. Much better on tap, fruitier. The bottled shit is characterless and watery. If you’re ever stuck playing pool in the townie though, get a schooner or two, or three or four, or maybe more. oops I’m drunkkkk sdyhgweywhyswwwwwwwwwbdlwbwhe

Nice surprising fullness of flavour in this beer considering it’s colour and texture.

This stuff is not too bad, medium body and palate but with a fuller flavour than I had expected. It actually tastes like a german weizen, how refreshing, to find an Aussie beer that actually tastes different, doesn’t just tell you it’s different in the blurb on the bottle.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale gold crystal clear under a small short lasting white head. Faint floral hops and some sour grainy dough aromas. Lightish body with mild sour bitter and sweet palate. Nice little zing on the tongue and sides of mouth. Some sweetish malt flavours in the middle and a soft sweet to dry finish. Not bad for an Aussie beer.

A nice clean, German style wheat. The yeast is failry subdued, which I like and it is fairly thin. Refreshing.
