Nice beer, fruity and malty with a slight bitter finish, easy downing, and not cloying or anything, nice flavour.

Caton (160) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 14, 2002
A good Aussie boutique beer, just as good drinkability than coopers sparkling. It is the choice of most Aussie wine makers. It has fruitiness on the palate, with a clean bitter finish.

Octopussy (50) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - MAR 4, 2002
Funny sort of colour, sort of orange, the malt might be a slightly roasted variety. Still it tasted good. I could notice the fruity taste as well as a hoppy bitterness. The light, refreshing palate was quite a surprise for its colour. The stuff I drank was brewed under licence in NSW, so it can’t really be called a Barossa Valley beer, unless the still brew some up that way.

UPDATED: NOV 23, 2006 bottled. unambitious but pleasant oz lager, faintly grassy, fizzy, golden, light bitterness, whatever

Hoppy aftertaste overpowers the fruitiness too quickly, but easy to quaff.
