I really really enjoyed this beer. It is a great beer for a sunny afternoon drink. Delicious like all of hunter brewery’s beers.

I live in the Hunter and this certainly my favourite beer. One rater noted the aroma as being poor, its probably only negative. Its a gentle refreshing taste. I try not to compare with beers from other countries. I think it is a pale, lightly bitter, , light body, lively beer.

Is not a real Kölsch like you get it in Cologne, more malty. Was served too cold in the brewery, aftertaste is just ok. Overall drinkable

I had this on tap at the brewery. Pours quite a pale yellow with a white head. Aroma and taste have a slight citrus taste.

2.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted 9/Oct/2016. Draught at Potters Hotel, Nulkaba. Poured a crystal clear golden colour with a 5mm white frothy head that retained very well and laced OK. Carbonation virtually flat with the rare fine bubble. Aroma poor, maybe a hint of malt. Taste of slightly sweet fruits, subtle spices and a hint of malt. Light body. Crisp and smooth with a short slightly sweet finish.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at Brewery...and various locations around Newcastle/Hunter
Pale straw body, holds a fluffy white head.
Mild aroma; pale malts, raw cereal, light fruits & floral notes.
Medium/light body, fairly full carbonation, delicate really.
Not a lot to it, but pleasant enough; husky cereally pale malts, floral honey character, faint pear/apple esters. Finishes with mild bitterness, lingering dryness & subtle spiciness.
Not a huge fan of the style, but this is one of the better ones.
