3.47/5  rDev +11.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: attractive, glossy packaging. 355ml bottle with temp indicator....although it didn't seem to be working. pours a light colour amber. medium white head, nice lacing, moderate carbonation.

Smell: malty sweetness and lots of fruity & citrusy notes. big hint of grapefruit (Pootz hit it right on the head!)

Taste: malts are up front and mid-sip the citrus and fruit notes come plowing through. semi sweetness from the malt and citrus of grapefruit. end of the sip offers up some hop bitterness but at a very subtle level. the finish ends on a rather bland note. most of the flavours disapear and there is little lingering.

Mouhfeel: clean and crisp for the most part. maybe a little too light bodied. very drinkable. not a huge flavor profile which might be a good way to convert macro drinkers.

Drinkability: a nice change from the mainstream macro market. a beer with plenty of potential. as Pootz stated in his earlier review, this beer is a step up from the standard macros and with wide distribution it might get a few people to step into the micro market. again, not the cream of the crop but well worth supporting this new local beer. in any case, a pleasant first brew from Robert Simpson.
