3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Pours a clear brick red with a frothy off-white head and light carbonation. Aromas are fairly light though caramel, flowers and raisins come through. Taste is much the same though lifted by a fruity hop note in the mid-palate. Wouldn’t have picked it as low a.b.v. Could easily pass as a regular red/amber. A little one-dimensional but very easy drinking. Quite liked it.

On tap at Murray's Manly. Bright copper, grassy hop aroma, light bodied but really flavorsome beer, a standout light. Wish they bottled this stuff - liquid gold!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Wow, now this is something completely out there!
Amber sort of beer, rocky head holds on.
Hop aroma is just HUGE, almost go as far as to call it more intense than the Icon; resiny, ripe fruits, pine, woody spice, pepper, and not to outplayed, there’s still a good punch of toffee and nutty malt underneath.
Body is really where this beer is astounding; unbelievably full bodied, chewy malt texture, with decent length. You’d swear the beer was at least twice the abv!
Once again, I really can’t help but think of the Icon when sipping it, the hop character is off the chart, so resiny almost sticky, malt drops away maybe a bit quicker than the Icon, but bitterness is just as high lingering unabated for an eternity, somewhat aggressivel so.
Very special beer, almost too intense to be considered a sessionable beer, but at light beer strength you certainly could have a big session on it...and probaby wreek of hops for a week...

On tap at Local Taphouse Sydney. Not sure if this is an American Pale Ale but it does have a lot of flavour for a very low alcohol beer. Solid copper colour this is not bad.
