2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Wizard Smith, what a name for a beer; my expectations were low from the moment the lads appeared at the front door with a sixer of this stuff. Pale copper, thin head. Lightly hoppy aroma, showing the typical Boags restraint. The hops are quite earthy, though there are no dirty flavours, in fact there’s not a lot of complexity going on here. A fairly typical English pale ale, quite pleasant to find one fresh and locally brewed.
Mid amber on the pour with a slightly off white head
Slight caramel toffee on the nose with a feint hint of dry grains an hops
Sweet on the tongue with a little malt and hops coming through and a fairly clean finish
An easy drinking EPA with perhaps not as large a character a the name of the beer suggests. However it is a commercial beer. Not a bad try JB hawthorne00 (4032) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 17, 2016
Bottle. Clear pale amber with a white head. 3+ Promising aroma is fruity and floral with bread crusts and a hint of roasted malt. Light bodied, highish carbonation. More caramel than bread crust in the taste unfortunately, but it?s not all that sweet and there?s fruity and roasted touches before a slightly harsh bitter finish. Pretty decent beer.
