A traditional all malt beer, fermented in the traditional German method with a long cold storage. Quite full-bodied with a big malt start, balanced with quite a high bitterness and hop flavour and a dry finish. The Lager has a hoppy, aromatic, and sometimes honeyish nose. No added sugar, preservatives or chemicals; unfiltered and unpasteurised. Available in 780ml champagne style bottles. Should be consumed within 3 weeks of bottling.

Bottled. Deep golden and hazy. Orangey aroma. Light bodied, but still with nice malt accent. Very flavourful and promising with balanced bitterness, but also beginning deterioration in form of acidity. I really need to seek up this brewer to get their beer fresh whenever I go down under. Thanks duff for sending this and all the other beers!!!

Pale golden beer, thin white head. Nice big spicy hop aroma, bready malt and a very fresh yeasty aroma and flavour. Long sweet malt finish mixed with spicy noble hops. Really has the guts.

jgb9348 (5605) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 18, 2004
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.

On tap at the Australian Hotel in Sydney. Pours orangey gold with a white head. Served real cold here. Has a medium hop bitterness. The finish has a nice cloying, not drying bitter flavor. Slight citrus tartness at the end. This was delicious with kangaroo pie.
