Actually tried this at the Docklands Brew Housein Melbourne which is a great spot to have a beer.
It is a little cloudier than what appeals to me Retains a white finely frothed head.
The smell is quite yeast , a bit bread dough The yeast is dominate in the palate but is balance by some pleasant citrus characters..It has a English Pale Ale acridity to it but subdued which makes this on the one hand a bit middle of the road but certainly lens itself well to a session of drinking Saying that there are a few beers on tap at the Brew house that are far more preferable to this one.

On tap at the Docklands Brewhouse.

A: Served a light golden color with a fair head that fades to some lacing.

S: Aroma is a faily mild citrus and some malt sweetness with a hint of fruit in the background.

T: Taste of mild citrus and some malt sweetness with a trace of fruit in the background. Mild bitterness and a dry finish.

F: fairly llight body, quite smooth and not much else.

O: Decent beer that seems pretty generic and doesn't have a much character.
