This cloudy little number is an all-rounder, easy-to-drink pale that sits in the Blackman’s range as one of their more sessionable, “good times brah” kind of drinks. It had a heavy wheat flavour which was nice and very unique.

A lot like the rest of the range from this Torquay-based brewery, it’s nice and easy, refreshing and something you’re definitely heading back for.

And I love the can designs. Like the entire Blackman’s range I tried, a jet black can with small imagery on the top of the can looks great and contrasts well against the matte colours of most of the core range. This can features a neat little graphic of a vinyl record, old-style microphone and some peacock feathers.

I can tell if I really like a can’s design  if I’ve kept it more than a week after drinking it. The range of Blackman’s cans will eventually find their way to the ManSpace offices where they can join the hall of fame of bottle designs.

Since joining ManSpace magazine and thanks to the 'In the Drink' section, I've progressed from a strictly Carlton Draught/ VB drinker to a Carlton Draught/ VB drinker that occasionally tries some super weird fruity things. I think we can call that progress.
