"From the only place it's possible" Boag's beer made entirely from Tasmanian ingredients, or so says the marketing.

Pours a deep golden yellow colour, with no head apart from a fizzle on the initial pour. Carbonation is streaming and crazy, however, without about fifty individual nucleation points lending themselves to creating a beer which looks more carbonation than beer.

Very little on the nose. A faint and slight whiff of barley grain. No sweetness, perhaps a little faint freshness - the progenitor to hops, but not hops themselves. Otherwise, excessively weak, if not excessively offensive.

Taste is mainly clean, although a spent grain character sticks around on the back, and there's a welling of bready yeast that doesn't quite get to levels that would be offensive, but is there nonetheless. But really, it's a very empty palate. Clean and bland for the most part, inoffensive, but very dull overall.

Much like the carbonation in the appearance, this is all about marketing zing and very little about content. Flat and drinkable enough. Like water, only in the past I've had water with more character.
