Stone & Wood Green Coast Lager

Brewery: Stone & Wood Brewing Company
Country: Australia
ABV: 4.7%
Style: Euro Pale Lager

Brewer Description: (from bottle) Influenced by the surrounding green hills that roll down to meet the Pacific Ocean, Green Coast is brewed with a blend of the finest malts and left unfiltered to create a beer that has a light amber colour with a natural yeast cloud, and a flavour that strikes a fine balance between its subtle hop aroma and full malt palate, finishing soft and clean.

My rating: 2
My beeradvocate.com rating: 2.6
My ratebeer.com rating: 2.4

Intro: A 330ml bottle with a best before date of 8th March 2017. Poured into a Moonzen teku glass.
Appearance: A very slightly hazy golden yellow colour with a one finger white head that dissipated fairly quickly while leaving some sparse lacing.
Aroma: Sweet malts and maybe a little musty at times. Not getting any of these supposed ‘subtle hop aroma’.
Taste: Sweet malts with some grassy notes.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Can be refreshing on a hot day, but nothing special.

My ratebeer.com rating: 4.3

Intro: This 330ml bottle was dated best before 7 October 2015 and was poured into a Hoegaarden pint glass.
Appearance: The beer poured a hazy pale yellow with a one finger big bubble head that disappears fairly quickly.
Aroma: Excellent aromas! Very tropical fruit forward especially mango, pineapple, orange, peach and apricot.
Taste: Like the nose, the taste is of tropical fruits. Mainly mango and peach with a slight bitter lemon finish.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied, crisp, medium carbonation, refreshing.
Overall: This was a good beer, very easy to drink and great for a hot summers day. The one thing stopping me from giving it a must buy 5, is that I would have preferred a higher ABV maybe up to around 6 or 7%.
