3.5/5  rDev +5.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

pours a slightly muddled light yellow/orange with sediment visible

nose is an interesting yeasty corruption of muddled fruit. muted but not really in a bad way. do get some of the oak coming through with its bitter notes.

taste is more of those muted yeasty flavours. very pleasant and extremely drinkable tasting, nothing offensive and a mild malty/yeasty flavour which satisfies.

mouthfeel is about medium, all about that muddled malt and definitely get the very moderately astringent oak presence coming through. notably watery finish but the malt flavours persist with it.

not an American Pale Ale, but definitely fits everything you would want in a lawnmower beer- it's got subtle flavours but nothing unpleasant and very drinkable. Does exactly what its supposed to. Would reach for this beer in an Australian summer before many others, although it's very pricy for what it is if I recall the price correctly.

3.38/5  rDev +2.1%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a champagne colour, decent haziness with foamy white head, unfortunately mellowed out to just a ring of lace. Bit meh.

Smells grainy upfront with a big belt of bread yeast as well. Slight tart note hanging around the back with a touch of green apple/pear aroma. Also a bit meh.

Taste has notes of cereal grain on the front as far as malt base goes, light but develops decent yeasty spice characters midway, touch of star anise and just generic Belgian phenols. Bit spicy overall, but still a bit bland.

Decent body, bit of carbonation. Fairly standard.

Not a bad Belgian ale, but pretty uninteresting.

3.28/5  rDev -0.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 3.25

Pours pale amber with a quickly fading head.
Nose shows spicy and floral hops along with a very soft melon character. Some grainy malt as well.
Pretty similar flavours, more melon and floral hops before some grainy malt enters alongside a very soft oak note.
Body feels a little watery.
Very drinkable stuff.

A "lawnmower beer" fermented on French oak from Mash. Tried on-tap at the 2013 GABS festival in Melbourne.

Pours a light honey colour, very solidly hazed with a finely laced head of almost pure white. Not much in the way of carbonation visible or lacing as it goes down the glass. It looks decent, but a little dull.

Honey characters on the nose, perhaps a slight oak suggestion and a bit of grain. Wheaty notes. It's fresh and clean enough: it's just extremely dull.

Taste is similar. Light and clean on the entry moving to a slightly yeasty or floury note that leaves the mid palate dry and dead. Finish has a slight twist of zest to it which cleans it up, but it's again rather dull.

Feel is silent and white—that makes no sense, but that's what the empty void of this beer makes me envision.

You know what? It's fine. It probably would make a decent beer after mowing the lawn. But so would so many others with more flavour and taste. This just left me bored.
