Thanks to ADZA for sending this across in a birthday box. 330ml into a Brooklyn snifter.

Pours a nice red with hints of amber. Nice beige creamy head of foam on top that laces and lasts well. Decent clarity too.

Smells of caramel and piney hops in a bit of a slimmed down version of Riverside 44 and perhaps a little less scorched too. More there than originally expected.

Taste is a good blend of the caramel and pine, seems to switch at times between the two as to which is the more dominant.

Does get a little thin and watery early and this does seem to improve the more i have. Has a nice slightly bitter finish to keep it easy and sessionable as i'm guessing the end goal was with this at 3.5% and brewed in a tourist area like Margaret River.

A good job here in creating something with flavour and a very low ABV, i.e. could have 2 bottles easy without putting the drivers licence at risk. A nice surprise packet that i'd be cool to drink more of if over in WA again on vacation.

Got this from Cellarbrations carpark brew and apparently inspired by Rogers from little creatures,5AM Saint from brewdog and Levitation from Stone but suprisingly its only 3.8% and is a dry hopped midstrength amber ale which pours a dark copper red hue with a creamy three finger head and lacing everywhere,the smell is piney hops,bubblegum,caramel,mangoes and lychees very enticing,the mouthfeel is light bodied with light carbonation and abit of let down for me but the taste is better with hints of piney hops,pineapple,caramel,toffee,dried fruits and finished dry and overall its quite sessionable but i like to see this beefed up abit with a better feel cheers.
