maneliquor (3283) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 1, 2012
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

bluevegie (3059) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 17, 2012
Clear red body with lasting off-white head. Caramel and grapefruit combine in the aroma. Good carbonation and a medium body make for an easy drinking beer and nothing too complex. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
