with the name i thought it was going to be a hop bomb. aka ipa style labelled as a lager. but this was well balanced. great amber colour. restrained hops allowing aroma and flavour to come through, without being hash. bitter and overbearing. perfect summer beer

On tap at Cookie. Great, very original pale lager. Aroma of fresh mint, grass, and some dry fruit. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness, and average length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Dark yellow, with a frothy head.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2013 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours vibrant orange with a two finger fluffy white head. Nose has a fair bit of summer driven fruits in it with biscuity malt behind it all. A touch of grain and grass too. Nice and balanced. Taste is backed by biscuit malts. Shows fruit driven hops with a fair bit of hop bitterness to finish off. Slightly floral. Very balanced. Carbonation is a little high for m liking though but works well for a lager. Good, solid stuff

Cap needed little effort to come loose and then jettison across the room. Pours fiercely; the chaos of carbonation raises the foam a good inch out the glass like a plume. The bitter, pineforest froth needed to be spooned off. The body of beer that perfect shade of sparkling orange amber that just screams ’Drink me!’ So fresh, so clean is the Summery waft from the glass. A virtual tropical fruit punch including grapefruit, lychee, honeydew and sweet cantaloupe with well defined herbal bitterness underneath. Much drier than anticipated on the palate with a pleasant, summery malt base and hint of oat cookies and soft honey. Bitter, crisp finish with plenty rolling around in the swallow. Very piney and camphorous in between with a herbal, lavender and elderflower note and bitter, tight fruit like grapefruit and orange zest. Body is light with moderate carbonation but not too much as to dull the wonderful mix of malt and hop. Again, like the aroma, this one is clean as a whistle (something I dread when I see the word Lager on a label) Really was not expecting a cracker of a beer, but here it is. Two thumbs up. A delicious Lager!! (33cL, Bottled 12/11/12, Mane Liquor, Belmont)

330ml bottle from Slow Beer. A very strong golden amber colour for a pale lager and also has a big frothy head. If only all pale lagers looked this good instead of the thin clear looking beer you normally get. Passionfruit aroma fills the nose and the beer is full and smooth in the mouth with an easy drinking flavour. Perfect beer for this scorching hot day.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Mane Liquor. Pours a bright gold colour with 2cm of head. Citrus fruit and pine hoppiness in the aroma, with a nice malt sweetness. Smells like a well balanced pale ale. Taste is really clean: hoppy, tropical fruits with a malty caramel sweetness. Really refreshing and crisp, well balanced pale lager. think I’ll be taking a growler home.

Orange gold pour with creamy white head. Malty, tropical aroma. Nice bready, biscuity flavour, with tropical fruit and nice bitterness on the finish. Pity more local lagers aren’t like this
