From Saveur-Biere. In Teku glass. Lightly fruity, with a sparkling feeling that seems to come from a spicy profile more than from carbonation. Highly drinkable and refreshing, with some taste and a pleasant nose

Hazy yellow straw colour. Thin but lasting head.
Fruity malt aroma with added honey.
Muted flavour but nevertheless quite complex. Some malt, caramel and grassy hops with added spice.
Highly carbonated from a bottle conditioned beer.

Found notes from my 2009 trip to Australia. This is one of the few Aussie beers you can get in the US regularly, and it’s a staple. Very bubbly, crisp feel. Refreshing.

Served cool from 375ml bottle into tall pilsner glass.

L) Pale yellow colour, very hazy, lots of clumps of yeast floating around. Very fluffy pure white head.

S) Actually - not that much. Sweetish malt.

T) Very malty, hint only of bitterness. A bit of toffee sweetness. A bit of sourness. Nothing outstanding, but it is all balance.

F) Smooth, easy drinking. Low carbonation and no skanky aftertastes.

O) Not as sophisticated as it looks, but a decent refreshing drink, can't go wrong for £1.50.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the World of Beer in Pooler, GA. The appearance is a cloudy orange color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is malt and a lot fruit. An outstanding beer

From bottle at home. Best after (?) date 07/09/14. Pours a very hazy brownish gold. Swamp water is the 1st thing that comes to mind. Zero head & no retaining lacing.

The aroma is where the fun begins. Very spicy. Very malty. Almost a tupelo honey sweetness in the smell. The body is very good and overall this is an ale in every sense of the word.

The label warns of sediment which explains the haziness since I had it lying on its side in the fridge. It might not be beautiful but neither am I.

Doesn't taste as strong as it is, which is good for taste but bad if you need to drive home.

L: Hazy, orange-gold. Thin white head. It's a sparkling ale so plenty of carbonation visible. Chose to leave sediment in the bottle.

S: Not much evident by way of smell. Some off-citrus hop.

T: Good level of bitterness. Malts are very light. Grassy hops are more prominent but far from confrontational.

F: Light/medium body. Some carbonation spritz which is very pleasant. A little tart. Quite refreshing.

O: Pleasant enough, but not exceptional.
