fletchfighters (1579) - - NOV 13, 2012
clear straw yellow color. Bright white head. Settles to a ringed collar. Spotty lacing. Nose is of pine, pineapple, passion fruit and pavlova. Hop forward smell with little to be had in the way of malt backbone. Crisp and clean hop presence in the mouth. Fresh citrus hops and more of a wheat body. High carbonated, slightly oily. Dry, clean finish with touches of lemon. session beer. not really my thing at all but a good clean beer with good hop presence

Malrider69 (173) - Central Coast, AUSTRALIA - JAN 1, 2017
Pours a pale straw colour with a substantial white coloured head. The aroma is of grass and the flavour has a slight bitterness that is long lasting on the palate. Overall a reasonable session beer.

On tap at The Hop Factory. Despite being one of the coldest days of the year this summer ale still went down a treat.

3.4
varanid99 (1341) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 28, 2016
Golden pour with a decent white head. Big passionfruit and citrus aroma with a bit of malt. Malty, biscuity, orange, tropical fruit and nice bit of bitterness

Oakes (18851) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 5, 2016
Medium gold, really bright passionfruit and piña. Tasty with moderate bitterness, with just a light pale malt character. Very quaffable.

3.3
gnoff (10985) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 16, 2015
Draught as part of a paddle at Yardarm Taphouse, Sydney, on October 12, 2015.
Citrus hoppy, slight dry bitter taste. Bitter, resin aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel with sort of high CO2, medium to medium low bitterness. Clear pale golden color, white head with lacing. Malty, light citrus hoppy scent.

3.5
Maris (1587) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - SEP 9, 2015
From a 330ml bottle on 9/9/2015. Pours a dirty light golden with a medium head. Has a quite strong fruity aroma, with lots of mango, apricot and melon. Take a sip and there’s biscuity malt, orange, lemon and more mango, finishing with a decent dash of hops . Light to medium bodied with lively carbonation. Solid and quaffable enough, without being particularly memorable.

2.9
KeefOz (1916) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JUL 25, 2015
Poured a clouded straw colour with 5mm of white foam for a head that retained well and laced OK. Carbonation high and fine. Aroma of sweet malt and subtle grapefruit, passionfruit and tropical fruits. Taste of moderate sweetness with a moderate grapefruit-like bitterness. Light body. Crisp, smooth and refreshing with a lingering moderate bitterness on the finish. Nice.

330ml bottle. Straw coloured with a pillowy, white head which gradually reduced to a ring and left some lacing. Aroma of passionfruit, pine and pineapple. Medium sweetness and enough bitterness to give it a pleasant balance. Light to medium body and a smooth texture hide a healthy dose of carbonation. Some nice bitterness in the finish. Not a great beer but I quite enjoyed this drop’s restrained flavours. One for those who appreciate a good amble and nice change from the more assertive and increasingly prevalent IPAs.

3.3
TedE (1481) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 23, 2015
330ml bottle into glass. Fresh fruit nose, passionfruit and melon. Cloudy golden beer with two finger white head. Very little carbonation. Grapefruit bitter taste with lingering citric finish. Refreshing, tasty, easy drinking.

mkel07 (6405) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUL 19, 2014
On tap at Brewski 190714. This is probably my least favourite of the riverside beers that I have tried. Pale gold colour and quite clear in the glass with white head. Flavour and aroma are both fruit driven, a bit too thin bodied for me.
