Easy drinking, Lychee based session beer from Broome. Light and refreshing, zesty and slightly tart.

(Bottle) Pours clear straw yellow with small transient loose white head. Pleasant aroma, although odd for a beer; it’s clearly lychees, with some other subtle sweetish floral notes. Palate is thin and fizzy. Taste is weird, not unpleasant, but too odd to be pleasant. It’s fruity, although I wouldn’t identify lychee. There’s some light malty sweetness, that might be syrup rather than malt, but the fruity tastes are confusing. A redeeming feature is the finish which is fairly dry and crisp but with some lychee hints to it. An odd beer. I am glad I tried it. Wouldn’t choose it again, but also wouldn’t turn one down.

Bottle - so from Perth, not Broome. Pale gold with a white head that fades but doesn’t disappear. Smells like a cross between fresh lychees (which I like a lot) and lychees tinned in syrup (not). Watery. Some, but not as much lychee in the taste. A little grainy, some soap, slightly metallic. It’s very thin, so the slight lean towards dry and the lowish bitterness is enough. OK - certainly finish it.

330ml bottle into schooner glass. Nose is sweet fruit and perfume. Very pale yellow beer with small film of bubbles on top. Thin body. slightly zingy mouthfeel. It’s like drinking musk sticks! There is a hint of lychees about but everything is dominated by floral perfume. Too weird and no fun.

Westkyoto77 (588) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 13, 2015
Bottle to glass. More like a fizzy cordial than a beer. Powerful sweet nose, sticky light body, short, ever-so slightly refreshing finish. Not bad as lolly water, but not really rateable as a beer. Sorry.

From a bottle. They certainly got the lychee aroma and flavours into this, it’s like a fuzzy lychee juice. Looks like a white wine,

Bottle from Plonk (Mat 2014). Pale pinkish-golden with minimal white head, super sweet lychee aroma and flavour, not much else to report. Sickly sweet.

KeefOz (1264) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - NOV 24, 2014
Poured a clear golden colour with a few millimetres of white froth for a head that retained poorly but laced OK. Carbonation medium and coarse. Aroma strongly of natural lychees. Taste of sweet lychee and musk - more like a soft drink than a beer. Light body. Crisp, light, refreshing (while cold) with a musk finish. OK to try.

Rosslew (320) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 14, 2014
Very light in the glass. Little froth. Got strong aroma of lychee and grain. Sweet on front of tongue. Not heavy but has a little late bitterness. Definitely a fruit beer that suits Broome. 1.2std drinks, 4.5%. 330ml ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330ml bottle. BB 03/04/2015. Pale straw colour. Frothy head which quickly disappeared. Minimal lacing. Aroma of lychees (funnily enough), perfume and musk sticks. Weird sweet and sour taste, not overpowering, but not very enjoyable either. Not for me.
