Best by Jul 2014 at 40 degrees into goblet
Aroma slight hops
Head small (2 cm), light brown, rocky; oddly, the head is mostly lasting.
Lacing virtually none
Body dark ruby, clear
Flavor ? Maybe, but it’s hard to find. The Tasmanian hops apparently don’t survive the bottling process well. This beer is slightly bitter, but lacks any distinct hop character – no alcohol, no malt, no diacetyl; no pine, citrus, tropical fruit, flower, etc. hop flavors or aromas are found.
Palate light, watery, carbonation soft.

While this is an attractive beer with OK mouthfeel, it is so lacking in flavor that it is hard to describe adequately. I first had this beer in 2012 when it was a limited release in bombers. It still is just an OK beer – nothing good enough to buy again and nothing bad enough to turn down if someone offers you one.
