COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
SO THE PERFECT BEER’S A LAGER? MAYBE. From the start, many have told us they want a truly refreshing, different lager beer. We agree a great lager is hard to find. It takes longer to ferment, needs lots of quality ingredients and demands character and texture. Rare these days, but we think we’re up to the challenge. So check out our first brewing effort. We won’t let you down.

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

Bif (1505) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 12, 2012
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!
