2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle. recent import by Shelton Brothers. opaque dull amber body with a small white head, some lacing. underfermented raw wort nose of Cracklin’ Oat Bran cereal and dry dog food and creamed wheat and crystal malt, so bad that the enjoyable bright citrus and tropical fruit hops can’t save it. goopy, sludgy, thick and chewy body with a lot of unfermented sugar; add strongly bitter high acid hop and it’s very stew-like and raw tasting. if they could ferment this out and maybe filter it a little, I can see where it could be and it would be beautiful. maybe this batch is a dud though, I can’t imagine Shelton Brother bringing this in if this is the intended smell, flavor and mouthfeel.

2.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thick hazy Amber with heavy off white head that lasted half the pint glass. Not much to smell with a light to decent strength taste. A good meat and potatoes ale that I'll buy it again.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottle) Hazy amber with slightest hint of head. Slight aroma of grain with some candy and grassy hints. Light body with reasonable carbonation. Quite fruity start - stone fruit - with some somewhat harsh bitterness developing. Not great.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours golden color with a medium head. Malty, a bit bready aroma. Rather thin malt body with a nice bitter finish. I would love a slightly maltier body. Good carbonation

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Good beer, only bought it as half price ($4 AUD for a 650ml bottle) Lovely aroma, taste like an ipa, decent ale, wouldn’t pay full price for it tho. but at half price was double the flavour and less cost than any other aussie crap lager in the bottle shop tho. Carbonation a bit high to nitpick, but still a verty nice drop

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle with Dad. Aroma is light malt, crystal malt, some citrus hops, a bit of a wet cardboard thing going on. Taste is crystal malt, vague tropical fruit hops, a bit soapy. A little too sweet for the style too in my opinion. Not bad just a bit unrefined.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clean pale gold body. Holds a decent inch of white foam.
Light hop driven aroma; citrus, floral herbs and spice, combine with light pilsner-like maltiness. The slightest hint of bready yeast character.
Dry, reasonably light bodied on the palate. Moderate carbonation.
Hop flavours again dominate on the body; Citrus leaf, unripe honeydew melon, guava, supported by cereal wheat and cracker biscuit malts with just the faintest hint of corny DMS. Lingering grassy hop bitterness is refreshingly prominent.
Nice easy drinking beer - certainly get their idea of combining a Pilsner with an NZPA; good combo.

Slightly cloudy, aroma has some spicy hops and slight stone fruit too. A clean palate, light to medium, good bitterness. An easy summer drinking ale.
