KeefOz (763) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - AUG 6, 2012
Poured a clear coppery amber colour with a very thin head that diminished quickly and left no lacing. Low carbonation. Pleasant sweet fruity aroma. Taste is sweet fruity malts straight up followed by a very mild hops presence. Medium body. Smooth on palate with a very slight bitter finish. Very nice!

A basic, run-of-the mill APA. Not fantastic by any means, it is insipid and has no body.

Nice tasty use of hops in this pale ale. Nice amount of bitterness and aroma as a result that make this an interesting while still being a sessionable beer.

Bottle. Hazy orange pour with a foamy beige head that lasts a little while. Hoppy aroma has notes of grapefruit, lime, mandarine, grass and pepper. Flavour is also pretty hoppy but the fruit notes are a lot more restrained and the spicy, grassy notes more pronounced, and also the malty caramel comes through more than in the aroma. Slightly oily mouthfeel with soft carbonation and a lengthy bitter finish. Fairly decent APA, tasty and easy to drink, but at the same time there isnít really anything to distinguish this from the scores of other similarly good APAís that are readily available.

(bottle) Clear amber copper with no head. Sweet fruity aroma with hints of perfume and caramel. Medium body, light carbonation. Flavour has nice sweetly fruity start with a satisfyingly bitter finish. Nice beer, but no surprises.

Tap and bottle- pleasing grapefruit hop aroma. Well balanced malt and hop profiles. A good hop bitterness finish. Also a good session beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Stew41 (1662) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - APR 24, 2012
Bit of a surprise packet this. Genuine hop punch with tight defiant grapefruit and bitterness. Some subtle malt sweetness is layered in but plays second fiddle to the hops. Surprisingly short finish. Iíll be back for more.

UPDATED: DEC 22, 2012 Bottle 330ml from King&Godfree. Tasty amber, malty with a good hop balance. Aromas of grain and nuts. Taste is sweet, with bitter notes, and average length. Palate is oily, and medium bodied. Amber, with a frothy head.
