SnakeHawk (4) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 13, 2014 does not count
One of the better Australian made pale ales. Full bodied, good on the nose with the hop character to flow through. Recommended.

floydian1 (1057) - FNQ, Australia, - NOV 28, 2014
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.

beer-yum (586) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 8, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2014 Enticing aroma and flavour showcases the four US hop varieties listed on the bottle. A tasty brew from the good folks at 4 Pines in Manly.

olivere (1) - melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 6, 2014 does not count
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.

Not bad but I found it had a very mild aroma, hardly any bitterness and a bit too malty.

gyllenbock (5017) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 19, 2014
Bottle bought in Brisbane, August 2014. Amber with a medium head. A relaxed one with hops, grapefruit and some mango. Also some notes of hay. Soft and easy to drink.

Morboso (67) - ECUADOR - JUL 18, 2014
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?

sm89walt (1780) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 25, 2014
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.

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
