Really enjoyed the hoppiness after having a wheat beer. Complimented my spicy meal beautifully and subtle enough to be a summer drink.

From Beer Cartel. No BB.

A - hazy blonde. Head to die for, purw white, puffy and pillowy. Good lace

S - yeast, breads.

T - if I said Coopers Green meets Stone and Wood Pacific? Quite yeasty but add some passionfruit and citrus. Balance is the name of the game. Dry-ish finish.

M - lightweight and lively.

O - easy drinking beer. But in a crowded marketplace will it last?

A good Summer beer that is easy to drink

aroma: spice, hops and light citrus with some honey sweetness

taste: spice, melon, citrus, freshly cut grass with some light malt and honey. Has a distinct bitterness.

Solid beer but not my favourite style - seems to lack a flavour.

From bottle, Hazy dark golden color, white head. Aroma is nicely hoppy, fruity and some flowers. Taste is also nicely fruity, hoppy and malty. Not bad.

Pours amber with a large, white head.
Nose shows soft papaya and tropical fruit along with some light malt.
Flavours include a little more sweet malt alongside soft fruity and spicy hops followed by a mild bitterness.
Carbonation is pretty aggressive.

A - Light golden colour with large frothy white head diminishes to a thin film

S - Slight citrus, floral notes including some passionfruit, lemon and a hint of light spice

T - Grainy, metallic taste that is rather bland, some bitter lemon and a light bitter finish

M - Light bodied and medium carbonation

O - Pretty average flavourless beer that lacks anything really. Disappointing.
