Nice colour and fruity flavours but I just don’t like heavy sweetness in a beer. Very light sweet flavours like banana and citrus burst through and It really goes down like a cider. Not good enough to be regarded or qualify as a beer in my opinion.
Bottle, during a holiday in Australia. Backlog rating from my bottle collection and historic scoring. Source not recorded. Tasting notes not kept, just rating. MrCrocodile (12) - - JUL 30, 2017

4.5%ABV. Golden Ale. CervezaMe (5) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 6, 2015 does not count
Tapped out light gold. 5°SRM.
Nose has some bright hoppy aromas of pine, citrus.
Mouthfeel is sudsy-soapy. There are palate flavors of nicely roasted malt with barley loaves, oats and nutty rich flavors.
Finish is medium with clean hoppy flavors of grass, fresh pine with not much herbaceous aggression.
Goes on Favorites List!
Easy drinking but lacking anything that really makes it stand out. What is expected from a craft brewery now owned by one of the worlds largest brewers.

Light on the hops with a decently sweet malt body. Well balanced for a golden, easy drinking beer. Shark_Pants (769) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 13, 2013
Pint bottle poured into a pewter stein. Fairly small head that dissipates quickly. Aroma citrus, pot pourri, cane syrup. Citrus up front in the taste, then the lightly toasted malts and sweetness open up. Good session beer for a hot day.

Tap. Light gold, good head that slowly dissipates and some lacing. Aroma of citrus and a sweetish malt. Light, refreshing citrus flavours with a decent malt background. Good session beer on a warm afternoon. vinhol (346) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 16, 2013
pot at LC Dining Hall nice hopper aroma light yellow in colour hoppy typical LC in taste will made ale HULK777 (641) - - OCT 25, 2013
Toast and fruit aroma. Odd taste of seaweed, sushi, avocado, and fish sauce. Light bitterness in the finish. Would probably go well with sushi. Gosh, I feel like I just had maki on a bottle.
