Recommended. Very much so. Not overly aromatic, but more than makes up for it with is beautiful taste. Caramel, honey, cocoa, bakeries - all of these flavours come and go in verying amounts with each mouthful. An absolute keeper. Dying to try it in summer.

Davros (1859) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 13, 2012
Pours dark ruby with a large head. Nose shows tropical fruit, cookie-dough, caramel and resinous hops. Very similar flavours: some tropical fruit, followed by rich caramel and cookie dough-like malt. Carbonation seems a little full-on, body a little watery. Very drinkable and enjoyable stuff!

Maris (952) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JUN 11, 2012
From a 330ml bottle on 11/6/2012. Pours a clear reddy amber with a smallish head. Has a sublime aroma stone fruits and melon, with some floral notes in the background. The flavour is very pleasant with some biscuit and toffee malt nicely balanced by some citrus fruit and marmalade. Finishes off with a good dose of dry, fruity hops. A very nice, refreshing drop.

Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours deep amber with a small, sticky white head leaving superb lacing all over the glass. Appearance is perfect for the style. Nose has notes of lively passionfruit, pine, light toffee and a touch of melon and gooseberries. Sweet and aromatic. First thing I notice in the taste, is sweet passionfruit followed by caramel biscuit. Melon hits the mid palate which helps showcase the vibrant hops and give it the slightest touch of sourness. Quite sprizty in carbonation and very easy drinking. Great beer

330ml bottle. Burnt copper red in colour with loads of light brown foam. Wonderful aromas of passionfruit and melon make you want to drink this beer. Light in the mouth with great flavour. An easy to drink beer.

UPDATED: AUG 9, 2013 Bottle. Clear reddish amber with a modest but lasting off white head. Aroma of grapefruit, caramel, a little toast, passionfruit. Barely sweet with some toast and biscuit, dry finish with light tropical and grapefruit notes. Light-bodied - seemed a bit thin at first at 9C, better as it warmed and the biscuit had more presence. A bit too clean for mine, but the hops are very nice. [3.4] [6/12] And a bit warmer again and it’s really working rather nicely. [3.6]

Growler on the sort of night that calls for a session mild, but this is ’Straya. Really does what it should - a steady drinker that’s tasty enough but not very filling. Dryish and moderately bitter in a way that maintains interest but is not compelling.
