Brewed with fresh wild hops picked on the Otway Ranges, brewed with English malts. Tried on-tap at the Local Taphouse in Darlinghurst.

Pours a slightly hazy golden colour. Head is fine-bubbled and pure white in colour, although a little too foamy and carbonated. Light bodied. Doesn't look too bad.

Bit of honeydew melon on the nose, with a touch of light floral honey. Touch of fresh greenery (perhaps the vines they added along with the hop cones are making a contribution). Only lightly hopped, but not bad.

Taste is light witha bit of the backbone coming through, giving slight bready characters. Hops are pleasant giving fresh characters of melon, cut greens, maybe even a little watery cucumber. Light, and crisp, and rather tame.

Not a bad brew, but not a huge one. I like people experimenting with wild hop varieties, and I do like the freshness you get from green/wet/fresh hopped beers, but they tend to end up a little bland, and this is blander than most.

Not baf, better tgan much otway anf nore interesting. 3.5
