Its all about the hops. In this case Australian Galaxy hops. Used in the kettle, the fermenter and in maturation to give a big hit of enticing citrus and passion fruit flavours but without too much bitterness to slow you down.

On tap at the Australian Brewery, pours a hazy blonde with a small white head. Aroma brings out biscuity malt and floral hops. Flavour is along the same lines, with biscuity malt and floral hops. Dry and clean, but forgettable.

Can. Very cloudy golden yellow pour with a thick white head. Aroma is very fruity and bright, citrus and tropical fruit. Taste is flavourful and dry, citrus zest and other subtle fruit. A really nice pale ale.

Draught at the brewery. Cloudy straw colour. Fresh, melony, grapefruit nose. Sweeter palate with moderate bitterness. Fresh-tasting and bright. Nice balance.

I guess Iíll have to go to Australia to get the really good Australian craft beers as they donít seem to be ordered by the Manitoba Liquor Commission. Pale yellow body, fizzy foamy ample white head some lacing. Faint but pleasant aroma of citrus and tropical fruit. Taste is slighty-bitter, some citrus, lactose, yeast, but watery as well. Okay only.

Light gold with a decent white head. Not much in the aroma, light citrus and biscuity malt. The taste has even less strength, Iím not getting much hop at all and little to excite. It goes down without a whimper. Came off like a pale lager with light fruit/pine hop. A bit pricey for what it is to bother trying again.

shoulderbroken (3452) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 12, 2015
Can from Natural Lawson. Light and fruity aroma, lemon. Taste is similar, quite nice, but lacking something. Lemony hops again, bit of biscuit, but the whole thing feels quite light and airy. Easy drinking but would have preferred it with a bit of a kick.

Morboso (144) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 18, 2015
Pretty good piney skunk aroma, medium well balanced body with a comfortable amount of bitterness and a reasonably clean finish. Better than I expected.

petewhitley (491) - Nagoya, JAPAN - JUN 28, 2015
floral, citrus, banana, golden, hazy, frothy, light sweetness, lightly sour, light body, fizzy, bitter. Deliciously fruity aroma, reminiscent of those dried fruits that are packaged with nuts. Very zesty in the mouth. Exceptionally refreshing. Not what I think of when I see the words "Pale Ale", but Iím certainly not disappointed.

355ml can. Hazy pale yellow colour with a stable medium-sized white head. Aroma is fruity with passionfruit and pineapple to the fore on top of a light malt bill. Taste is similar with a mild-to-moderate fruity hop bitterness. A solid pale ale in the mould of Stone & Woodís Pacific Ale (but not as good). ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

355ml can into glass. Faint tropical fruit nose. Cloudy amber beer with solid white head. High carbonation. Zingy in the mouth. Fruit salad taste followed by hop bitterness. Really nice, moreish.
