Beer Tasting: Strawman Rype

I bought this beer from the illustrious Kris Wines. It pours lightly hazy orange-gold, quite effervescent (as the photo shows), with a moderate, frothy white head. The aroma has basic pale malts and some tangy citrus. The flavor is medium sweet with bready pale malts, hints of dough, orange and tangerine, touches of plastic and pine needles. Light to medium bodied with fine to average, creamy carbonation. Sweet on the finish with moderate bitterness, some hay and more pine needles, hints of alcohol and plastic grass, more doughy pale malts, orange merengue. Drinkable but could do with a few tweaks I think. (Score: 3.3/5.0)
