Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours cloudy golden/amber with 2cm of white head. Fresh pine/citrus nose with a touch of caramel malt. Wow. Massive tasting beer considering the ABV. Big citrus hop flavours with the continual of the caramel malt. Taste’s like an IPA cause of the distinct hop bitterness. Best midstrength beer yet.

Clear amber beer, little white head. Light crispy palate, a tad dry. Somewhat lager like malt with pretty mild citrus hops. There is balance but this is a bit insipid. Mild minerals in the finish.

Disappointing beer. There is a hint of this being a great sessionable beer, however, you are let down by the lack of substance and flavour. I like it when a low ETOH beer is made, but only when it retains the flavour.

Wonderful aroma of citrus, pine and grassy hops. Nice balance in the taste with a really refreshing citrus mouthful and a pleasant bitter finish. Lovely beer.

Poured a deep cloudy amber-brown with a massive and lasting beige head. Got grain and fruit on the nose. Surprisingly hoppy with fruit and pine flavours over smooth caramel malt. Body is a little thin, but it’s very drinkable. Don’t really notice the lower a.b.v.

330 bottle. Pours amber with a nice light tropical fruit aroma. The flavour is also light with a nice toffee/nut note and clean hop flavour and bitterness. Amazing flavour for a low ABV beer.

All I got was a glass full of foam, no matter how long I let it setle. Aroma of hops. The head tasted of roasted grain.

A gusher; head only filled the glass taking a good ten minutes to settle a tawny amber and bright. The head is persistent towering and rocky, floating more than an inch above the rim. A palette knife was needed to square it off and get close to take in that wonderful bouquet. Big, bold, spicy and herbaceous whole hop nose that simply oozes passionfruit, pineapple, pear and lychee-like fruit esters with a sweet, biscuity malt edge. In the mouth it is more controlled and reserved. The body is light and the carbonation gives it good bounce. Light diacetyl is evident but not alarming, overall it is drier than expected. Toasted malt and barnyard grains start it off with just a lick of caramel. All hops past the mid-palate; quite piney and herbal, dry and husky with pronounced passionfruit and pineapple. Finish is woody and piney, long and wonderfully refreshing. I can feel me hollering for another to follow and I’m only half way in. Session stuff. I think these guys are on a winner with this shy beast. An Aussie version of Stone Levitation dare I say. Delicate and bold at the same time. Loved it!! (33cL, BB 08/12/12, Cellarbrations Carlisle)
