3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Albert St Food & Wine. It’s a bit of a concern that this is my favourite Thunder Road beer. I mean, I’m sure they’ll eventually branch out into something more adventurous but this is it at the moment. Anyway, it bears a reasonable resemblance to a Carlton Draught-type beer, with a subtle line of citrusy hop (Cascade or Galaxy perhaps?) woven through. Similar sweetish, spaghetti malt character to the lager with a tiny bit of toastiness to it. It has quite a familiar feel to CUB’s products except without the rough edges, which is kinda cool. More authentic-tasting and probably a better beer than Temple’s equivalent.

On tap at Arbory 210515. Pleasant enough beer without being to complex. Maltiness overrides any bitternes that may be there. Ejoyed this on the deck overlooking the Yarra River.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap (Heritage Tavern, Balnarring). Clear orange with a well-retained white head. Sweet and smooth - biscuity and a little peachy - with herbal and light citrus notes. Quaffable rather than interesting. All very seamless. Comes across as a (very) superior riff on typical Oz pub beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light amber, thin head, light aroma has a touch of caramel and a touch of fruitiness. Moreish, slightly biscuity malt character w delicate yeast fruitiness. Aside from the whole "keg" thing this is quite British in character.
