On tap at Sunshine Coast, pours a clear blonde with a small white head. Aroma brings light toasted malt and a touch of hops. Flavour is along the same lines, with toasted malt, a little hops and some metallic astringency on the finish. Clean enough but weak.

From a bottle. Probably the best mid Iíve had, great flavour and decent body for the strength. Great job.

Bottle from Archive Beer Bar, Brisbane (June 2014). Pale gold/straw, frothy white head, bready/doughy, earthy/grassy hops, thin texture, light body, abrupt finish. Nothing special.

Pours a clear straw colour with thin white head. New world hops aroma bursts of pineapple, peach, passionfruit and grapes. Bread and graham cracker malt aroma in the background. Clean, medium body. Smooth, faint bitterness in the finish. Great beer to waste an afternoon with.

KeefOz (1561) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - AUG 26, 2012
Poured a clear golden amber colour with a three-finger white foamy/sudsy head that took time to diminish. Poor lacing. Moderate to high carbonation. Aroma of earthy hops. Taste had virtually no bitterness but was musty/sour. Light to medium body.

330ml bottle. Clear and sparkling with a honey gold colour and a loosley packed white head. Fruity aromas of peach and passionfruit with a hint of melon coming hrough. Medium body and light and dry in the mouth with some sweetness in the flavour.

UPDATED: AUG 1, 2009 Draught at Platform Bar, Brisbane. Pours orange with a small white head. Malt and citrus aroma with a hint of honey. Flavour is malt and citrus. A little thin by way of mouthfeel. OK carbonation and low bitterness. An improvement on the bottled version I had a while ago.

Nice little beer, and if you take into account the alcohol content I think it is a very good effort. Fruity, peachy aroma. Moderate bitterness and a good body that errs a little to the light side. One of the better mids around.

winkle (478) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JAN 8, 2008
On tap: old rating off notes from early-ish 2007. Presents a pale straw with some hazy. Fruity hop presence in the aroma but not as much as expected. Fruity with a clean lite bitter finish. Note: Iím keen to try this again knowing that this beer has been tweaked into punching out more of a hop presence. Potential is there.
