3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught @ brewery, Melbourne
Pale gold, holds a fluffy head.
Subtle nose - cereal, pale malts, hint of fruity, spicy, herbal hops is nice.
Full bodied, quite clean crisp, highly drinkable, carbonation spot on.
Pleasant body; soft pale malts, good hit of hops without being overtly hoppy - tropical fruits, leafy spice & dried herbs. Bitterness moderately high, but good balance.
Very drinkable, good to see lager being made with justice.

Bottled (2013, backlog). Orangeish golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is citrus, grains, mild floral and resiny notes. Flavour is resin, birchsap, caramel, mild floral and earthy notes along with some nectary notes. Quite alternative lager.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Produces up a hazy orange gold with a messy and dense pad of white that lasts the length and laces well. Fruity and tight, spicy hops on the nose; soft perfume atop a hint of sweet marmalade, grapefruit, pine and lemon sherbet. Quite weedy and acrid on the palate with a lengthy weedy, rockmoss-like aftertaste. Assertive, edgy bitterness. A touch of honey and marmalade upfront offer some sweetness to balance. Quite creamy in mouthfeel with good body. It slowly softens, or is that just my tolerance lapsing. I don’t mind it to be fair, but I’m sure it was a better lager back in the day at 7.1% ABV!

Bottle - pours opaque gold with a big white head. Aroma is grassy, bit of nettles, some citrus and cereal. Hops dominate the taste, slightly fruity finish. Lively palate.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fruity tropical hop aroma, clear pale straw colour, small frothy head. Like an IPA without malt backing it up - this makes the finish somewhat bitter without malty sweetness to balance, seems more bitter than its stated 34 IBUs. Pretty good, an interesting lager, something different.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle. A clear golden amber with a solid, lasting and lacing one-finger white head atop. Fragrant aromas of tropical fruits balanced by a fresh, long hop bitterness in the finish. Quite a firm mouthfeel with medium-ish carbonation on a light to medium body. Well balanced and plenty of character; also deceptively drinkable given its ABV.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle into middie glass. Hoppy nose with some malt. Cloudy golden amber, creamy small head. Little carbonation. Bitter taste with even more bitter aftertaste. There’s some toasted malt and alcohol notes mixed in there. Not really a lager, not really a pils, not an IPA. Interesting but not really enjoyable.
