2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Possibly one of the newest beers in the country and the brewer was kind enough to send a few samples over. Nice looking beers with a thin super-white head and a body of glowing orange / tan colour. Aromas are quite mild with faint hop and sweeter honeyed-like notes. Same story in the mouth; very subtle malts, mild spice and a appealing citrus / honey flavour come through. Seems well built but the flavours need a bit more intensity for this beer to get interesting. Nice to see the beer is truly "local" with the malt and honey contribution coming from Kangaroo Island produce.
