Hop forward smell with little to be had in the way of malt backbone. Crisp and clean hop presence in the mouth. Fresh citrus hops and more of a wheat body. High carbonated, slightly oily. Dry, clean finish with touches of lemon. session beer. not really my thing at all but a good clean beer with good hop presence

Medium gold, really bright passionfruit and piña. Tasty with moderate bitterness, with just a light pale malt character. Very quaffable.

Maris (1323) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - SEP 9, 2015
From a 330ml bottle on 9/9/2015. Pours a dirty light golden with a medium head. Has a quite strong fruity aroma, with lots of mango, apricot and melon. Take a sip and there’s biscuity malt, orange, lemon and more mango, finishing with a decent dash of hops . Light to medium bodied with lively carbonation. Solid and quaffable enough, without being particularly memorable.

KeefOz (1427) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JUL 25, 2015
Poured a clouded straw colour with 5mm of white foam for a head that retained well and laced OK. Carbonation high and fine. Aroma of sweet malt and subtle grapefruit, passionfruit and tropical fruits. Taste of moderate sweetness with a moderate grapefruit-like bitterness. Light body. Crisp, smooth and refreshing with a lingering moderate bitterness on the finish. Nice.

330ml bottle. Straw coloured with a pillowy, white head which gradually reduced to a ring and left some lacing. Aroma of passionfruit, pine and pineapple. Medium sweetness and enough bitterness to give it a pleasant balance. Light to medium body and a smooth texture hide a healthy dose of carbonation. Some nice bitterness in the finish. Not a great beer but I quite enjoyed this drop’s restrained flavours. One for those who appreciate a good amble and nice change from the more assertive and increasingly prevalent IPAs.

330ml bottle into glass. Fresh fruit nose, passionfruit and melon. Cloudy golden beer with two finger white head. Very little carbonation. Grapefruit bitter taste with lingering citric finish. Refreshing, tasty, easy drinking.

mkel07 (4880) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUL 19, 2014
On tap at Brewski 190714. This is probably my least favourite of the riverside beers that I have tried. Pale gold colour and quite clear in the glass with white head. Flavour and aroma are both fruit driven, a bit too thin bodied for me.

M_Sack (579) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 17, 2013
Bottle. Pale orange to gold with a thin white head and medium level of lacing. Strong pineapple and passionfruit aromas up front, followed by a pine and an unusual tropical fruit juice finish which slightly detracts. Simple, quaffable and enjoyable flavours of pineapple, passionfruit and lemon, beefed up by a touch of pine. Good strong hop bitterness with just a hint of oil at the front, which fades away slightly and returns at the conclusion for a long finish. Half a dozen please.
