Tried on-tap at the GABS festival in Melbourne.

Pours a golden yellow colour, quite clear with a smooth and light, but supple weight to the body. Head is creamy and white and it leaves solid lace. Not bad.

Nose is slightly organic, but mostly just bland. Thin, weak, maybe just a suggestion of fruit, perhaps berries? But these are guesses, or else just figments of my imagination.

Taste is similar. Light and clean on the entry with a crisp malt character, but this just continues—bright enough and quite fresh, but exceedingly dull. Clean finish, but... you guessed it... exceedingly dull.

Feel is light, again fine but dull.

Dull? Did I mention that? It's drinkable enough I guess, and I think it's actually better than most of the rest of their range, though, so that's saying something.

Pours a straw colour, clear with dense white head, nice retention. Looks very nice, but the paleness worries me, as a good pale should have more body than this looks to have.

Smells grainy upfront and weird on the back. Cereal notes before a salty, almost corporeal character comes through. Meh.

Taste is grainy, bready, yeasty. Cereal notes upfront and then just sharp, slightly sour yeast note. Nothing of interest and nothing to cut through. Unpleasant.

Thin body, tingly carbonation. OK for style but unimpressive in every other sense.

Bland. Meh. Waste of my time.
