Pours a gold colour, bit more pale than I'd like, with thin white rim of lace around the top. Looks a bit meh.

Smells malty. Cereal grain with some bready notes, touch of rye and a slight nutty edge. Not bad, could use a bit more hopping to let me know what I'm in for stylistically.

Taste is also bready. Some cereal notes and a touch of cornbread, some rye and a fairly sizeable yeast note. Touch of spice maybe, but no real hop of any description as far as I can tell. Bready, mostly.

Decent body and feel, goes down quite nicely.

Meh. More of an ordinary bitter than an extra special bitter. English style in the sense of 'could drink lots of this' but I wouldn't really want to.

Tried on-tap during the GABS festival 2013 in Melbourne.

Pours a clear golden hue, perhaps tending towards amber, with a relatively light body without much carbonation. Head is a thin ring of white that doesn't leave much in the way of lacing. Looks a bit dull.

Light and malty on the entry, without the sweetness of the malt, but perhaps with a little bit of earthy spice. It's clean enough, but it doesn't leave much else. Again, pretty unexciting.

Light entry on the front palate, perhaps with a touch of something medicinal. Faint green characters come through later, but they're very weak, and they have very little to work with anyway. Watery in the finish with a slight astringency.

Feel is light, but at least with a pleasant smoothness to it.

Unfortunately, this was a beer that I clicked with. It's not something I'd want to drink often, and it didn't provide me with anything else either. Disappointing, as Last Drop have done some otherwise decent beers.
