One of the better and smoother from this brewer. These guys do some really interesting stuff but they have a passion for a most unusual yeast strain that flavours all these beers. If you like it, you'll like all there stuff. Not bad, not great, drinkable but I wouldn't drive to find it. dubs (117) - St Peters, NSW, AUSTRALIA - DEC 11, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2003 Cool beer: never seen so much yeast sediment in a stubby! I tried to culture it for Home brew, but will have to getz back to yous homies in a rerate 4 updates on dat one. aiiight? Aroma gave a false impression. Nice bite. almost gourmet. Avocados and whiskaz on kittenz. Brown papaer packages from the not-so-local bottle-o... update on homebrew progress 12/1/03 tasted like champaigne out of the stubby i cultured it in just before adding it to brew, brew started bubbling wildly within six hours of pitching, massive head apparent in bucket, very hungry yeast will bottle in a coupla dayz...

I highly approve, which of course means that everyone should try this beer! Nice bite in flavour with a pleasent aftertaste. I agree with johninmelb, Grand Ridge is just a sensational brewer. johninmelb (1127) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2002
This is nice. Nice bitter dry finish to complement that fruity hoppiness that a lot of the new breed of aussie beers have (eg Little Creatures, Gippsland Gold). Grand Ridge is just a sensational brewer. OlJuntan64 (1264) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 9, 2002
Hazy honey amber brown with mm sized floaties. Large size, medium lasting large bubbled off-white head. Very nice malty and floral hops aroma with lighter yeast and spices (ginge?). Short lasting medium intensity fruity hoppy start followed by a decent malty yeasty middle and finish. Drier milder sweet aftertaste. I quite like this one.

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2003 Not bad at all! As I suspected, my last bottle must have been dodgy. It's a very unusual combination of fruitiness with the English style caramel malts. Good. Kaya161 (1142) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 9, 2002
Deep golden colour. Not much of an aroma, but the flavour is pleasantly hoppy without being bitter. A good flavourful session beer. motelpogo (8031) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 22, 2002
pretty fat. baked custard. tang............................................. eczematic (1326) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - JUL 22, 2002
Maybe shouldve heeded mutant's warning about not pouring the sediment in: it's a disconcerting murky light brown colour like sandy seawater. smells uncannily like redskins lollies. reasonable malty body, with a thick English hop flavour. acidic, anty aftertaste. odd, but drinkable.

This is a great refreshing session beer. Great refreshing maltiness and a great bitter finish. Hints of fruit and citrus and biscuty palate.
