355ml can into glass. Small head disappears instantly. Smells sweet,weird slightly cloudy yellow colour, strange taste like plastic rice (!?!). Brewed in USA. Avoid if possible.

KeefOz (1565) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - MAY 2, 2014
BB 131214. (Parallel tasted with Bitter and Mid). Poured a slightly hazy golden colour with a one- to two-finger white bubbly head that diminished virtually instantaneously to a few bubbles. No lacing. Carbonation coarse and reduced quickly. Aroma of light malt but there is a metallic part to the aroma that is quite off-putting. Taste of slight fruity sweetness but no bitterness. Light body which is very thin and watery. Slight sweetness on finish. Poor. Much the same as the Tun Bitter.

In my never ending search for the bottom of the pickings comes another WOW brands Aus. courtesy of some facility in the U.S. Canned goodness again with the skolling ready wide mouth lip. Pineapple juice on the nose with a tinny, menthol, minty-ish freshness. Pours with such radiance and promise but this soon follies to a thinly looking mid amber with no more than a ring on the meniscus. Taste wise, to it’s credit, there is something there. Pineapple and passionfruit (not always a positive in brewing!) are a positive with this one. The carbonation frothy with a dainty but soapy, washy body. Finishes with a fleeting bitterness. Light mint and mouthwash in there. Malt is faint, distant. Papery perhaps, but clean living otherwise. Just ugh, but of all of these WOW beers it is the most drinkable. (35,5cL, BB 12/12/14, Dan Murphy’s Currambine)
