2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Tap at rainbow hotel, Fitzroy. Amber colour. Head dissipates quickly. Nice aroma but not very complex. Refreshing, sessionable pale ale with decent amount of flavour to it. Recommended.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
One of the better Australian made pale ales. Full bodied, good on the nose with the hop character to flow through. Recommended.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not bad but I found it had a very mild aroma, hardly any bitterness and a bit too malty.

Bottle, and an old one at that. Will have to revisit this one given it’s reputation, but I didn’t really enjoy it as much as I thought I would

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Keg - Newport Arms, Newport, Sydney. Poured a clear amber with a lasting, one-finger white head that left a uniform lace. Grassy hops, fragrant mid-fruit characters and slightly tropical notes with a pithy marmalade bitterness in the mouth. A light biscuity-sweet malt tone towards the back end flavour-wise. Light to medium body, crisp and firm palate texture with medium carbonation and a lengthy finish. A solid, easy-going yet characterful pale.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle from Cellarbrations with expiry of 22/10/15. Amber brown pour with small cream-white head. Nose offers caramel malts with mild pine and citrus hops and this is reflected on the palate with a mild to moderate bitter hop finish. Medium bodied with an average carbonation. More like an English style pale ale despite the stated IBU of 35.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2014 Re-rated, this time a very pleasant passionfruit, piney aroma, not much head, quite a bitter taste that lingers. Nice one, I wonder what their IPA would be like? on bottle neck of this one is lable stating citra,amarillo, simcoe,cascade hops. Last time I rated I detected very little aroma, different batches of this with diff labels?
