Marginally prefer to the Beach Ale. Solid Pale. Love the astronaut on the bottle!

Tastes pretty full for a summer ale, which is no bad thing!

Decent on draft as well - seemed a shade less hoppy than from the bottle.

Mercury Cider Company by Draught Cider

Chris B. is drinking a Draught Cider by Mercury Cider Company at Two Johns Taphouse

Pleasant enough and undoubtedly refreshing, but doesn't have that something 'extra' I was hoping for.

Enjoyed this a bit more than last time. Hence the nudge up on score

Not quite as wheaty as I'd hoped. Passable.

Temple Brewing Co. by Power Stance Pilsner

Chris B. is drinking a Power Stance Pilsner by Temple Brewing Co. at At The Heads, Barwon Heads

Decent effort at a Czech style pils when few locals can get it right. Definitely worth another.

Not bad refreshing summer beer - doesn't stand out though.

Mountain Goat Beer by Hightail Ale

Chris B. is drinking a Hightail Ale by Mountain Goat Beer at Chapelli's

Meets high expectations set on side of bottle by delivering a malty toffee taste. Very rich, so just a couple!

Temple Brewing Co. by Anytime Pale Ale

Chris B. is drinking an Anytime Pale Ale by Temple Brewing Co. at MoVida

Very nice and certainly hoppier than the average pale, as implied by the bottle. Expensive so needs to be - but suspect that is the venue!

Cervecería Bavaria by Aguila

Chris B. is drinking an Aguila by Cervecería Bavaria at South Yarra

Less Spanish tasting than I expected. Still nice though, and more taste than some of the more North American brews. Pretty good overall.

Southern Bay Brew Co. by Southern Ocean Ale

Chris B. is drinking a Southern Ocean Ale by Southern Bay Brew Co. at Barwon Heads Winestore

Nicely balanced pale - malt, hops, fruit all spot on. Great label on the bottle when you want to think of the sea!

Pretty standard pilsner. Pleasant enough.
