Pours gold with a small head.
Nose shows grassy and spicy hops, soft light malt and hay.
Similar flavours with the same spicy hop notes and some light sweet pilsner-like malt followed by an assertive bitterness.
Nice moderately light body, could use a bit more carbonation though.

Nice hoppy brew, mild enough for a session. Great BBQ beer.

Nice beer but lacks punch. The appearance is cloudy and the nose fruity. Mouthfeel is pleasant and the beer is quite refreshing. Hoppy finish that stays for a while.

A - Pours a pale straw colour with white frothy head that dissipates slowly to a thin film

S - Lemonade (almost shandy like) on the nose. Light floral, grainy hoppy aromas with a some peach, lemon.

T - Light hoppy, grassy taste, lemon, grapefruit with a bitter finish

M - Light bodied with medium carbonation

O - Light well balanced hoppy beer with a nice slight bitter finish that is delightful on a hot summers day

From Warner's no BB.

A - clear straw, one finger head, good lace.

S - husks, grains, a little malt.

T - light and summery indeed. A quaffer. Almost in macro territory, but saved by light hop presence on back palate. Some doughy malts.

M - very light, moderate carbonation, zingy.

O - easy drinking, not challenging, and as such an odd adder to the Feral range. A cynic might suggest this was added at the behest of the finance dept not the brewing dept.

Bottle: standard 330mL brown bottle, typical Feral Brewing label. So, okay.

Appearance: pours a clear pale straw yellow with fine carbonation. A small white head dissipates quickly to a thin ring.

Aroma: plenty of tropical fruits and some herbal and grassy hops. Not much malt or backbone.

Taste: pretty much follows the nose - plenty of fruit and grassy hops, without much malt. Refreshing to say the least, if a touch one-dimensional.

Aftertaste: some hop bitterness with tropical fruits still hanging about.

Mouth feel: light- to-moderate in body with a moderate carbonation to bring the flavour through.

Overall: another example of a decent but not overwhelming beer from Feral, with a price tag far too high. Quite a refreshing tropical fruit-based beer, but not good enough for the price of AU$88 for a case of 24 x 330mL.

From bottle, The beer is lightly filtered for a vibrant hoppy, citrus and piney aroma with a clean bitterness that pairs perfectly with a hot summers day.

I had a 330ml bottle. This beer won a bronze medal in the 2014 CBIA Craft beer awards in the 1E category English style Summer Ale.
Appearance: pours as a light bright colour, lighter than expected but it looks fresh and vibrant. Good white head. Some residual cloudiness which I purposely stirred up.
Aroma: very fresh citrus and pine hop aromas. Fantastic aroma for what appeared as a lighter style beer base on the colour.
Flavour: bang! Flavour is fresh and the aromas follow through on the palate. Excellent balance of bittering and good level of carbonation and medium body mouthfeel. One of the better beers I have tasted. This would be a very sessionable beer.
Overall: this is a great beer. I was pretty much blown away by it and cannot wait to have it again.
