THIS BEER IS FILTERED FOR SMOOTH AND REFRESHING CRISPNESS WITH MEDUM CARBONATION. THE 100% MALTED GRAIN PROFILE IS A COMBINATION OF PILSNER, CARAPILS AND LIGHT MUNICH, WHILST THE HOP BILL INCLUDES THE NOBLE GERMAN HOP TETTNANG, AUSTRALIAN HELGA AND NZ PACIFICA. THE SWEET MALT CHARACTERS ARE BALANCED BY THE EARHTY SPICE AND FRESH CITRUS KICK AND FLORAL NOTES DERIVED FROM THE HOPS.

Bottled version brewed at Laverton until the introduction of a bottling line to the Willunga Brewery.

zacgillbanks (5535) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2015
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. Pale straw coloured with a sweet toffee and malty flavour followed by gentle citrus on the finish. Pretty bland.

maneliquor (3514) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 14, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2013 Tap at the local joint. Smells like a ginger beer? Weird. Taste a little like something half way between a ginger beer, cider and lager. Weird stuff. Not great but not really too bad in any way. Just not what I was expecting. Probably dirty lines....

joe19612 (3101) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2015
Bottle. Pours light yellow colour with a fluffy white head, light malt aroma, taste is light and fruity with a dry fluffy finish.

1.4
ALLOVATE (3069) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 15, 2013
Hasn’t quite gripped me as it sits in the glass. Headless, soda-like and with an appearance I’d expect from a Strongbow™ cider than a lager beer. Nose is dominated by grapefruit and lemon and lime zest with a touch of passionfruit to round it off - minerally and not quite clean. Light and a little too watery with no malt for back-bone. The fruit of the nose plays unconvincingly on the palate. A touch of rubber and plastic in the finish. Awkward in mouthfeel with light carbonation and a flat finish. Expected a lot more than this. Pretty one-dimensional stuff! (33cL, BB 24/05/14, Dan Murphy’s Currambine)

Muggus69 (2748) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - NOV 22, 2013
330ml bb 24/05/2014
Clean pale gold body, holds a good inch of white foam.
Good intensity aroma; citrus, melon, passionfruit, guava, light toasty cereal maltiness.
Medium carbonation and body, crisp and clean overall.
Pale cereal malts lay a backbone for tropical fruit, citrus, spice hops. Light bitterness to finish.
Nice lager... Good hop character, clean overall

2.5
Stew41 (2093) - Phuket, THAILAND - MAR 29, 2015
Very dry style although not of Asahi proportions. Looks very macro and the nose is slightly off-putting with a dry cardboard lift. Dry citrus in the mouth with again some cardboard creeping in. Not sure I really approve or agree.

2.4
KeefOz (1923) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - OCT 30, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2017 Poured a clear amber with a one- to two-finger white frothy head that diminished slowly and laced OK. Carbonation moderate, lively and fine. Aroma subtly of bready malt; no obvious hops. Taste of sweet tropical fruit (pineapple); no real bitterness. Light body. Smooth, crisp, clean and refreshing with a slightly sweet finish. Average for a craft lager.

2.5
Sevenlee (1846) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - OCT 9, 2014
Pours a clear golden colour with a white head. Aroma is malt, floral and citrus. Taste is medium sweet leading to a dry finish. Not bad.
