look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75
Bottle: standard 330mL dark brown bottle, funky and different label. Not my thing, but different at least.

Appearance: clear pale gold with plenty of carbonation and a fluffing two-finger head that dissipates slowly.

Aroma: floral hops and grassy overtones. Not overpowering though, quite a demure aroma, per the Steamrail norm..

Taste: again a fairly flat, lifeless malt flavour that doesn't have much bite or texture.

Aftertaste: zero aftertaste, which is becoming the norm for Steamrail.

Mouth feel: a veritable explosion makes this feel more like a soda than a beer. Metallic fug from the bubbles threaten to overpower the already weak flavours in the beer.

Overall: I did a bit more investigation and discovered that the Steamrail brewing company was created by Coles. That seems about right, as their 3 beers are tasteless, homogenised bollocks designed (assumedly) to appeal to everyone. What we have been left with is little taste, an awkward feel and no upsides. Bollocks!

A delicious golden ale - not too hoppy or malty with a fruity finish.

It poured a dark golden colour. The beer was well carbonated and poured with a good, white head which dissipated quickly. The nose was grassy and slightly hoppy.

Label on bottle states 20 IBU and 8 EBC.

Would definitely drink again.

A: Deep clear gold colour, head dissipates quickly leaving a few bubbles.

S: Grass, copper, hops, a little bit like creamy soda.

T: Nothing really jumps out, just hops and slightly sweet. Slight bitter aftertaste.

M: Carbonation leaves a tangy feel in mouth. Pleasant.

O: A nice beer, would drink again.

Gold Digger is golden ale without a strong malty base and without much hoppiness either. Pretty flavourless.

A: Nice orange colour and a good 4 mm head. 4.25

S: Not a strong aroma. Grainy with very subtle hop aroma. 3.75

T: Not much of a malty base with some unripe fruit flavour and some grassy hops. Not so great. 3

M: Nice and foamy. 4

O: 3.25
