3.53/5 rDev +7.3%

On top at the Sydney Local's Beer SpecTapular.
Cloudy light brown colour, with a fine bubbled head of white foam. Lacing is good, with a nice bead to it. Overall looks pretty tasty.
Quite a ripe fruit character on the nose, my bro Sam might be right about NS hops. Light sweetness from the malt, but the sharp fruit character really does stay prominent. Really quite hoppy. Not amazing, and out of character.
Again, pretty hoppy on the palate too. Starts nice and rich, with a brown sugar and wholemeal bread flavour, but the hops soon shear through it, leaving a crisp residual bitterness. I'm not sure it suits the style, but it is a perceived American trait to overhop everything. Mouthfeel ok, not too thick, not too thin.
It's a drinkable beer. I'm not overwhelmed with happiness for having drunk it, and it doesn't strike me as really unique and tasty, but it does have character.

Pours cartoon brown and very hazy, with a pleasant beige crown of foam. Lacing is sensational, and can't see any carbs because of the have. Head is great, lacing is great, I love haze. That's a great look.
Nose is quite tangy, good caramelly sweetness but a tangy sauvin hop aroma as well at the back gives it a hint of passionfruit, pineapple and lemon. Hint of leather as well, nice and complex, could be stronger though with more fragrance. Need to really sniff to get the smell.
Taste has a sweet grainy character, lots of seedy, nutty flavours with cereal overtones, and then a floral sauvin hop bitterness on the back, which is nice, but doesn't suit the flavour very well. Should be more malty on the finish, and the hops really overpower. Mouthfeel is quite tingly with a bit of puckering on there, again it's not a bad mouthfeel, but I don't think it suits the style. I think this is a decent beer gone awry. Nice flavours, but in the wrong combination and ratio.
