Drinking this on tap, I felt this was significantly better than my review of it in bottled form, so thought it deserved a re-review.
Hazy blonde. Head is much bigger, creamy, with good retention, and lacing which lines the glass. Highly aromatic (as in the bottle) with citrus, coriander and clove. On palate sweet and sour, with clove and banana on finish: perhaps more intensity of flavour than in the bottle. The lovely sweet-sour finish is lasting. Carbonation is more balanced on tap, creating a pleasant mouthfeel. Few beers could be called more refreshing. Superbly drinkable (particularly now that the weather is getting warmer in Australia). In spite of a good selection of other beers where I was drinking, I couldn't resist sticking with this.
Serving type: on-tap
