I liked this beers overall appearance and taste. It had it all. It did however have a slightly medicinal after taste which could take some getting used to. great effort for my humble opinion.

Dervock (500) - Emu plains, AUSTRALIA - SEP 11, 2009
Bottle - Pours a lightly hazy golden yellowwith a massive frothy white head. Aroma is a mixture of yeast, flowery hops and fruit. quite a lot of carbonation, floral and yeast flavours, some banana. short dry finish... I really like this great beer!

A nice drinkable pale ale, like the description says, it is much better when it is ice cold. The balance is very nice and consistent from sip to sip. Not overly hoppy, but has a pleasant dry hopped taste, with an malty English pale ale aftertaste. Enjoyable.

UPDATED: DEC 20, 2013 An enjoyable brew that manages to provide full flavour in a low(ish) alcohol package. While it doesnít stand out from the crowd - it doesnít have any issues either. Worth a try (especially on a hot summer day).

Sweet hop aroma, opaque bronze with negligible head. More malt flavour than the Macedon Pale Ale and bitter at the end in a better way with a little spice.

Canít argue with the commercial description. Nice fat, bitter aftertaste. Very thirst quenching and tasty. Iíll definately buy it again, and I like it more than the hightail ale from the same brewery

Nice and refreshing perfect thing for warm days. Not suprised this uses Hallertau hops as the flavours really come through whithout being overly herbatious.

The Goat beer nobody really drinks has always been my favourite. This bottle was a lot darker than I recall it being, but not to worry. Very clear - yeast clings to the bottle. Head retention average. Really nice fruity English aroma. Solid caramel, bready malt flavour and just enough bitterness to balance nicely. Slightly overcarbonated. A pretty simple beer but it works... insert Corn Flakes slogan here.
