2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Bluetrain, Melbourne. Hoppy, wheaty, aromas with a hint of banana.
Golden blonde, fine carbonation. Palate is crisp and quite dry, but just right for a lager. Tastes fruity, estery with full flavours of peach, wheat and sunshine.
Overall, fairly balanced and refreshing.

So hard rating a style of beer that I seldom enjoy. But I can’t find any faults in this. Lovely

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Irish Pub in Albury. Served a good golden color with a decent head that fades to some lacing. Aroma of what seem to be honey sweetness and grain. Taste of some honey sweetness and a bit of hops crispness with a bit of grain in the background. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. fairly light body, crisp, quite smooth and refreshing. Nice balance. Not a bad beer for the style. Much better than expected. Good for a few.

Tap at Beer Delux. Solid for a lager. Not my style but as far as a lager goes, its clean and easy. Worth a shot

I’ll buy the commercial descriptor this time. A good effort for what is nearly always the pits of the beer world. Some medium strength malt sweetness is the key differentiator here lending a nice layer of flavour to what is a very quaffable beer. Consumed from a growler sampler! (thanks to Thunder Rd) but held good form the whole way through.

Had this the other day at Cherry Tree Hotel in Richmond. Wow! Great malt character, with a nice bitterness. Reminded me of a Trumer or a Becks, but better! And locally made to... Can’t wait to drink this again!
