Nose
Sharp and hoppy at first, with delicate pale malt beneath. Spicy and unusual.
Palate
Sweetish but crisp, with hints of lemon and mellow tropical fruit. Malt is apparent, too, along with a touch of sourness. Gently warming spice develops (a little aniseed perhaps?).
Finish
Dry on the swallow, fairly thick and initially sweet in the aftertaste. But increasingly bitter.
Comment
A refreshing and intriguing pale golden lager from Tasmania. St George and the Dragon have long featured on the brewery's logo.
