3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Leaves a thin off-white head at pouring that disappears quickly.
Nice clear amber brown colour.
Light hints of earthyness, caramel and pineapple, but not very strong.
Taste: light caramel, sweet tropical fruit, bit of honey, with creamy mouthfeel and slightly lingering bitternes (not unpleasant)
Nice amber ale, flavours could have been a bit more vibrant.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark, clear amber with a fine white head. Nose is caramelised sugar, pineapple, mango, guava. Lots of tropical fruit. Flavor is lots more tropical fruit on the front palate (heaps of mango), a little jammy sweet note, slightly biscuity on the back end and a little bitterness. Pretty watery body, with a very abrupt finish. Not bad. As always, 4 Pines fail to impress me. However I really like the tropical fruit notes I get out of the mosaic.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a 500ml bottle on 19/6/2014. Pours a clear amber with a small head. Has a light sweet fruity aroma. It starts out with some biscuity malt, which is followed by quite a bit of sweet citrus fruit (particularly orange). It finishes with a medium, slightly sharp, lingering bitterness. Has a medium body and relatively fizzy carbonation. Solid if not particularly exciting.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Big fan of the Keller Door beers so tried this one out...
Ar: Nice, citrusy and floral with a little pine and maltiness / Ap; Pours deep caramel almost brown, clear with half finger tan head / T: Slightly sweet - very slightly - with nice medium bitterness / P: Well carbonated with nice bitterness, maybe a touch thin if I was to be critical / O: Very good beer, sessionable for certain, particularly as the weather cools down. This was from 500ml bottle poured to a glass, would love one fresh of the keg. Definite for the re-purchase list

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From 500 ml bottle. Pours a clear deep russet red with a fluffy but diminishing cream coloured head and moderate carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit zest, flowers, passion fruit, sweet biscuits and a touch of pine. Taste is lightly sweet malt and baked apple at first but that quickly gives way to a firm citrus zest bitterness that dominates the mid-palate. Mild fruity finish with a little spice at the end. Interesting combo that works pretty well.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A bit of everything. Hoppy on the nose but biscuit on taste. Bit of malt, toast even toffee on taste. It is backed by a tropical fruit foundation. Has a bitterness that suits a winter drink. Looks brown in the glass.
