Golden pour with a thick white head. Malty aroma, didn’t pick up much else. Malt also dominant taste, with a little pepper and sweetness. M_Sack (771) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 30, 2013
Gold coloured with a big attractive head. Weakish aromas of malt, honey and a touch of citrus. Flavours of citrus, caramel malt, bread and a nice spicy/bitter finish. An ale in my mind and a very good one. KeefOz (1913) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JUN 15, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 17, 2013 650ml bottle. Poured an uninviting cloudy brown with a one-finger off-white foamy head that diminished quickly but gave good soap-ring-like lacing. Light to moderate carbonation with small bubbles forming trails. Subtle aroma of sweet malt, a trace of hops, very slight roasted grain and maybe a hint of spice and citrus. Taste initially of sweetish malt followed by a citrus bitterness/sourness and a high acid hops on the back palate. Light to medium body. Long slightly acidic and bitter finish. fletchfighters (1573) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 10, 2013
Hazy straw yellow color, half finger of bright white head. Falls to a thick collar. Good soapy lacing on sides.
Spicy nose with citrus and stone fruit. Touches of pepper with slight hints of the malt backbone.
Taste is more towards the malt side. Bread and caramel, then citrus and some spice.
Medium bodied, prickly carbonation. Spicy, citrus and dry, stale bread finish with hints of honey.
Pretty decent actually Sevenlee (1846) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - JUN 1, 2013
Pours a hazy golden colour with a beige head. Aroma is malt, fruit and caramel. Taste is medium sweet of fruit and some bread leading to a dry lightly spicy finish. Not bad.

bottle. recent import by Shelton Brothers. opaque dull amber body with a small white head, some lacing. underfermented raw wort nose of Cracklin’ Oat Bran cereal and dry dog food and creamed wheat and crystal malt, so bad that the enjoyable bright citrus and tropical fruit hops can’t save it. goopy, sludgy, thick and chewy body with a lot of unfermented sugar; add strongly bitter high acid hop and it’s very stew-like and raw tasting. if they could ferment this out and maybe filter it a little, I can see where it could be and it would be beautiful. maybe this batch is a dud though, I can’t imagine Shelton Brother bringing this in if this is the intended smell, flavor and mouthfeel.

I’m not sure if this would be something to drink all night or not. It’s a bit of a tease in that it definitely has more character than mainstream slosh, but maybe not enough to stop me wishing for something a bit more challenging after the first bottle. The claim that it straddles the Ale/Lager divide is bollocks. It’s a refreshing lager that goes down well after a day’s work, treat it as such and you won’t be disappointed.

Bottled. A golden beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of fruits,malt, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of lemons, hops, malt, and caramel, leading to a bitter finish. Nice, but not Bohemian. mkel07 (6363) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - NOV 19, 2012
650ml bottle. Pours a strong sunshine orange colour with an even layer of white fam. Looks pretty good in the glass. Malty aroma is pleasing as is the flavour. This is a good session beer.
