I was pleasantly surprised with this beer as I have had some unpleasant experiences with organic produce. A very refreshing lager, moderate alcohol, easy drinking on a hot summers day. If I could get it easily, at the right price I would buy it.

Pot @ Edinburgh Castle, Brunswick. So pale a gold hue, it looks like cider. Loose white head which falls away rapidly; perhaps due to barmanship not brewing however. Aroma of Honey-O cereal, taste more of the same. Hopping balances the sweetness, but doesn’t intrude. As the temperature rises and the beer opens up, husky grains overpower the honey. Thin but not overly watery mouthfeel and medium dry finish make this a perfect summer slammer (42C in the shade today!) A brilliant alternative to CUB or LN lagers.

Davros (1948) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 17, 2011
Pours pale gold with a massive head. Nose shows nice biscuity malt and lemony, spicy and grassy hops. Quite pleasant. Flavours are quite disappointing in comparison, not much of the biscuity malt transfers through, instead there’s hints of vegies. Some lemon shows. Carbonation is pretty high but it works well. Body feel very watery though.

Pours wonderfully. Effervescent pale gold, with slight green tinge with a voluptuous, tightly packed white head. Otway’s beers have consistently made my nostrils happy, so - despite my best efforts, I somewhat expect this to smell wonderful. Thankfully, it not only meets my expectations, but exceeds them. Pear, passionfruit and glace ginger sit above a treasure trove of spice. The palate is mealy and savoury. Great palate weight & texture, especially for an Australian lager. The fruits offered by the nose flourish on the back palate and last into the long aftertaste.

Maris (990) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - MAR 18, 2010
From a 330ml bottle on 18/3/2010. The label on my bottle makes no ’reference to ’Prickly Moses’. Not quite sure what to make of this one. It has a distinct and quite nice grassy aroma but tastes a little strange, as the grassiness comes out in the flavour. It’s not particularly sweet and has a modest bitter kick, which borders on the sour side. An unusual lager which doesn’t really come together.

davidm (1935) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - OCT 3, 2009
Bottle 330ml. Surely the best pale lager I ever tried. Aroma has grass and apple. Flavour is smooth and sweet, with very light bitterness. The frothy head brings some creaminess to the palate. Yellow in colour, the head is long-lasting, and with good lacing.

Pours pale yellow with greenish hues. Pale malt and lemon grass. Thin bodied. OK bitterness. A clean and crisp tasting lager, nothing offensive.

Dredd (690) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - FEB 17, 2009
Aroma is yeasty with a bit of fruit and spice. Appearence is cloudy amber with white head and good lacing. Flavour is a nice mix of upfront spice with a bit of a mid palate nothingness and finishes with a nice zesty bitter finish. This is reminiscent of the other Otway beers so they have replicated their style in an organic lager. It is a bit expensive, but one of the nicer organics.
