3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Deep golden and hazy. Orangey aroma. Light bodied, but still with nice malt accent. Very flavourful and promising with balanced bitterness, but also beginning deterioration in form of acidity. I really need to seek up this brewer to get their beer fresh whenever I go down under. Thanks duff for sending this and all the other beers!!!

Pale golden beer, thin white head. Nice big spicy hop aroma, bready malt and a very fresh yeasty aroma and flavour. Long sweet malt finish mixed with spicy noble hops. Really has the guts.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy blonde coloured body with a thin white head. Aroma of coriander seed, wheat and whole oranges. Medium-bodied; Spicey flavour with coriander seed, nutmeg & wheat-VERY flavourful! Aftertaste spicey and full flavoured. Overall, one of the best lagers iíve had-I think itís a wheat! Afterwards...STRONG meaty flavours with beef stock, potatoes & celery!! WIERD! Tasting this after the Cascade 4 Seasons, these tastes come out, but prior, the wheaty tastes come out. Still, a crazy brew that is unpasteurised and very refreshing. I sampled this pint at the Australian Hotel on the Rocks in Sydney, Australia on 09-June-2004.

Tap. Cloudy yellowish orange with almost no head. Grainy aroma with some flowers, pears and spices. Feels alive in the mouth and is slightly creamy. Light grainy sweetness with typical lager hint of sourness and mild peppery bitterness. Good.
