4.1/5  rDev +13.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours an attractive filtered blonde yellow like a wheat-influenced beer should, with nice foamy head on top.

Nose is very grassy, hydroponic hops but also a lot of tropical notes, my guess would be something like Simcoe and Galaxy. Has what I'm fairly sure is a wheatiness too (based on the colour and flavours of this beer, I'm not 100% sure it's brewed with wheat though). Hoppy plastic. An interesting meatiness.

Taste is big, big passionfruit (which suggests NZ hops). Nice jelly-esque malt flavours to go with it. Finishing bitterness is present but kept in check with the decent malt presence.

Mouthfeel is about medium, certainly thicker than something like Stone & Wood Pacific and further suggests wheat has thickened it up a bit. Another nice component of the beer.

Seems like I'm drinking a different beer to the other reviewers as this beer had very strong and refreshing hop flavours to it. Not sure on the style categorisation here, I'd go either with Golden Ale as I believe the brewery calls it, or American Pale Wheat Ale as I suspect it's brewed with wheat and otherwise matches the style closely. Either way it's a very nicely made beer which combines both excellent hop flavours and a drinkable ABV. Actually reminds me a fair bit of Riverside's Inner City Wit. Only downside to this beer is it's a bit pricy.

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

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

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

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.

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.
