3.5/5  rDev -0.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Tried on-tap at the Local Taphouse in Darlinghurst during the first day of Sydney Craft Beer Week.

Pours a bright golden colour with a little hazing in the glass. Body is light with minor streams of carbonation running through it. Head is white and pocked with bubbles but leaves decent rings of lace. Looks decent.

Nose has a slight pineapple hop character coming through, but is mostly malty with some lagery overtones and a slight hint of sulphur. Hops are quite subdued apart from providing a little bit of that fruitiness.

Crisp entry on the palate with some minor sharpness providing a bit of a bite. Some more pineapple comes through on the mid-palate, but it's a little empty. Lingering fruity bitterness on the back leaves a smooth aftertaste. Apparently there's coconut in this beer as well, but I don't see it. Feel is light and balanced.

Overall, it's very drinkable stuff: a little sweet perhaps to be truly refreshing, but overall, it's not bad.

Pours a pale golden colour, slight cloudy haze. Head is white, decent bubbling. OK i guess. Looks OK.

Smells quite hoppy, American mostly. Touch of golden syrup behind it, with lots of pineapple, passion, and pine resin as well. Bit more hoppy than expected, but pretty decent.

Taste is bit subdued. Hoppy, tropical - notes of orange, some passion and a touch of prune. Bit empty midway to be honest but nice palate nonetheless. Mostly hops, light and a bit empty. Don't get much coconut or many oats. Just fruity, thin; drinkable but not hugely impressive.
