3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
The bigger sister of the original two Birds I believe, more rounded and mature in profile, and just damn tasty. It looks sultry in the glass. A fiery chestnut, radiant and translucent with a fine bead and wickedly rocky, inch of off-white foam atop. An unexpected hint of ginger tea precedes big, biscuity sweet malts, roasted nuts, toffee and oak on the nose. Inside it is quite rounded and boldly flavoured with a lot of roasted malt, roasted nuts, earth and dust, herbal, spicy hops and touches of grass and bitter grapefruit. Frothy, medium-light bodied but easily sessionable. Dry in the finish with plenty of nutty, husky malts to linger it is reasonably sweet upfront to balance very nicely. This is a charmer of an ale. Quite surprising. Good stuff!!! (33cL, BB 18/09/14, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)
