Smithy’s – Bitter

Brewery

Smithy’s (liquorland) in Melbourne, Victoria 

Style

Australian Lager

ABV & IBU

4.5%

Tasting Notes

Light gold colour with white head. Smells like American Adjunct Lagers (think Bud, Coors etc). Earthy bitterness on first sip. I bought this to remind me of what a Aussie bitter tastes like as I’m planning to brew one but wondering if I can improve it through different hop selection. I was fully expecting a shitty VB clone but surprisingly it’s not that horrible. Would I buy more of this, unlikely. But if I can brew something around this or better, it’ll be a good everyday beer.

I drink beer. And occasionally I'll write about it. But mostly, I drink beer.
