Nice looking, clean gold with a reasonable white head. Pronounced citrus fruit nose, these are also present on the palate, a bit too much for me, makes the beer a bit unbalanced. Not an awful brew, but not one Iíd buy again.

355mL bottle from Dan Murphys. Clean deep gold body, sudsy sort of head. 3 Pleasent sort of malty nose - pale caramel, toast, honey, slight floral (hop) character. 6 Medium-light body, carbonation probably a touch high for style, touch watery on the finish. 2 More of the toasty, honey sort of malt on the body, moderate bitterness, finish is dry, lingering minerality. 6 Doesnít do what it says on the packet (Galaxy hops!?), but it is past its Best Before - not particularly exciting. 11 2.8

Served in a tulip from a 500ml bottle. Pours clear golden colour with a thick off-white head, decent lacing in the glass. Aroma is toffee, tropical fruits, grass and a hint of lemon. Taste is very crisp and refreshing combination of mango, caramel, lemon zest with a crisp clear finish. Medium body with medium carbonation. Extremely nice and refreshing brew!

KeefOz (1463) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - MAR 18, 2016
Poured a crystal clear golden amber with a one-finger bright white foamy head that retained OK and laced OK. Carbonation moderate and fine to medium. Aroma of malt with a hint of spice and lacking in tropicals. Taste of pale malt, spice and grain with a tarty bitterness and again no real tropical flavours. Light body. Smooth and crisp while cold with a short lived slight bitterness on the finish.
