Morboso (142) - AUSTRALIA - 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 (1896) - 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 itís reputation, but I didnít really enjoy it as much as I thought I would

motelpogo (7705) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 5, 2014
bottle - xmas day drinks. steady amber with a thin beige head; aroma of grapefruit and trail mix; like most australian attempts at american ales, the bitterness is a bit lower than it should be. clean and okay for a session beer, i guess

Was expecting a lot from this but bitterly dissappointed. Stale hoppy aroma, metallic drawl that lingers for an eternity. Heavy. Boozy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rosslew (320) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 18, 2014
Pours almost a light brown with a nice head. Not much aroma but pleasant. Almost a hint of orange. Light on front of tongue with a sting of bitterness on back of tongue. Would have with light meal, something not too spicy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

agoodpale (8) - - DEC 28, 2013 does not count
Pours a beautiful amber colour.Real nice flavour. Great use of hops and malt.. Great amount of bitterness at the end and sits real well as an aftertaste. Really nice well rounded beer. Refreshing ale, pick up at a case at Dan Murphys and enjoy, wonít disappoint.

Bathory (458) - Kverneland, NORWAY - DEC 25, 2013
Pours a coppery colour with a small, short lived white head. The aroma is mostly grass, pine and some citric notes. The smell is a bit weak. Taste is pine, citrus and some toffee. Aftertaste has an avarage bitterness for the style. Light body, maybe a bit watery. Avarage carbonation. A really avarage pale ale imo.
