3.15/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Slightly cloudy pale golden colour with a small and shortlasted white head.

Very mild overripe tropical fruit with a bit of dull metallic malt.

Light malt with a touch of graininess and some metallic hop character. Dull and insipid.

Medium light body with moderately high carbonation. Fine.

For me this misses the mark with a lack of either malt or hop character that leads to something dull and disappointing.

2.65/5  rDev -16.1%
look: 4 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Bottle purchased from the Adelaide Bier Shop.

Pours a mostly clear, but slightly hazed pale golden colour, with a filmy head of white that stays persistent as a fine foam atop the glass. Fine body and carbonation. It looks pretty good.

Nose is musty and a little rank, with a slight meatiness sitting atop some very dull hops that have the belligerence of Pride of Ringwood. Slight weedy thinness to it along with a fug of carbonic acidity, and a residual sweetness like corn or rice. Really quite unpleasant.

Taste is lighter, and better in some ways. Crisp opening leads to a muddled, slightly overcarbonated body, but the hop character is muted, only clearing out some of the grainy malt, and leaving a peppery bite on the finish. Feel is crisp enough, while staying slightly too thin.

Very average brew, this one. It doesn't do anything interesting, and sways a little close to the offensive side of the offensive/dull border. Not one that's really worth looking at.

3.35/5  rDev +6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

This is 4.7% ABV and pours a hazy pale golden hue which leaves a frothy three finger head with dimples and heaps of lacing,the smell is citrus,floral hops and fairy floss,the mouthfeel is light bodied and sessionable with tastes of floral fruity hops,a touch of toffee,a light touch of peach and finished with a crisp dry citrusness and overall its an easy drinking drop that is alot better than the pale cheers.
