Bottle. Clear golden with no head. Pleasant aroma esters / banana with some hops. Medium palate with plenty of carbonation. Flavour has a fruity start (mango / banana) with a hint of spice developing into some hoppy bitterness in the finish. A pleasant, but not exceptional beer.

Not too bad, definitely not worth the price tag though. Have drank it inPerth a few times but they serve it to you with a wedge of lemon in the neck.....yuppy scum!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
345ml bottle. Pours a surprisingly clear golden yellow. Puffy white head that drops to a lacey whisp. Lemony citrus aroma with a touch of yeast to it. Reasonably clean and strong biting citrus dryness - sweet yet tart. A bit light in the spice / banana dept and maybe misses something being so clear

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
(draught) Light gold with generous white head and nice lace. Yeast aroma. Flavor of yeast, mild spices/fruit. Unfortunately it was paired with a steak, which didn’t help bring out the flavor - I asked the waitress (in a pub in Brisbane) what Redback was, and she said "Sort of a reddish beer" - I was expecting an Irish or maybe an amber ale, not a wheat beer.
