Pours a clear, pale golden colour, slow bead and awesome head. Dense, white and thick. Lace is tufty and sticky. The body overall looks OK ( but not bad), and that head is aces.

Nose is a bit dulled. Getting hints of pale malt, and a mild hop character, quite floral. Hints of banana and apple, some cakey malt notes. Yeah, mostly subdued smell though, not unpleasant but I would really like more.

Taste is quite sweet, with more caramel notes, and a fair banana character on the mid, then hops come through floral and slightly herbal and mixed with a slight grain husk bitterness. There's a sweetness to the hops and the finish, almost a vanilla character that peeks through right at the end, after all the bitterness has died down. An interesting enough flavour but it falls at the end. Mostly refreshing though.

Smooth texture with a good body to it, then a bit dry on the finish.

Quite smooth drinking. Could use more robust bitterness but I get the feeling this is the nature of the wet hopped beer.

On tap at Sydney's Local Taphouse for their ANZAC Day SpecTapular.

Pours a pleasant golden colour, somewhat hazed, with a full, pillowy head of crunchy offwhite bubbles. Decent lacing. Looks pretty good overall, but the colour is somewhere between the canonical hues.

Somewhat muted hop notes on the nose, light tropical notes and a bit of banana, sweetened by a slightly overaggressive malt note. Pleasant enough, but not nearly enough hop character for what it is.

Taste is similar, with a slight bitterness receding from middle to end, and a little too much cloying sweetness otherwise. Pleasant phenols on the front don't stick around, and I'm rather nonplussed overall. Mouthfeel is crisp enough.

Overall, I've had better wet hopped ales. In fact I've had better today. This doesn't stand up to the Bridge Road Harvest and its hard not to make the comparison. This seems timid by comparison and sorely lacking in raw, fresh hop character. Drinkable enough in its way, but not particularly interesting.
