4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy blonde coloured body with a thin white head. Aroma of coriander seed, wheat and whole oranges. Medium-bodied; Spicey flavour with coriander seed, nutmeg & wheat-VERY flavourful! Aftertaste spicey and full flavoured. Overall, one of the best lagers iíve had-I think itís a wheat! Afterwards...STRONG meaty flavours with beef stock, potatoes & celery!! WIERD! Tasting this after the Cascade 4 Seasons, these tastes come out, but prior, the wheaty tastes come out. Still, a crazy brew that is unpasteurised and very refreshing. I sampled this pint at the Australian Hotel on the Rocks in Sydney, Australia on 09-June-2004.

2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sampled this after the Cascade 4 seasons autumn and experienced a most rare phenomenon. Perhaps I needed to wash my palate, but as there was no water available I couldnít. I sampled this lager and tasted nothing but chicken broth and onions. Just like momís chicken soup in a bottle, even with hints of carrots and celery. Weird!?! I have to give this beer a slight benefit of the doubt since it was not its fault I didnt drink it first and also because I will not be able to retest it until I go back to Australia. This rating will have to do for now.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
What a solid around larger! Nice clear golden apperence. Looks inviting in the glass and doesnít dissapoint on the palate. Light subtle fruitness with smooth munich malt taste. Just the thing for a sunday afternoon. Prefer it the the bock as it just a lttle more novel. Wouldnt say it breaks the mold, just a bit surprising.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught, at the Australian Hotel, Sydney.
Golden with a nice smooth fluffy white head. Feral organic larger aroma with honey and rustic hop notes. Some smooth, lightly roasted malt notes as well. A good drop that I wish I could have had more of but the volume of choice was against me.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A one-month shelf life? No worries there. A cloudy and tasty drop, and if youre ever in Sydney, swing by the Australian Hotel and you can get it on tap. Mother's milk!
