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.

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 I’m 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 & Wood’s 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.

GenkiGonzo (1054) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 3, 2015
Can from Katsuragawa Aeon mall. Really light gold with a huge frothy whte head. Aroma has some hops with a ton of fruit and something tangy. Flavour has Belgian golden ale yeast with nice tropical fruit and a nice bitter finish. A bit all over the place, but very fresh.

really pale golden color. Lightly hopped nose that is reminiscent more of a Pilsner than a pale ale. Very light body with little character and little resemblance to a pale ale

I found it to have a whole hop aroma, as if I had a handful of hop cones. It was slightly grassy, but the citrus of the Galaxy certainly comes through in aroma and taste. Pleasant drink

Can from Kumiyama AEON Mall liquor shop. Decent tropical fruit nose, with some cat pissy notes. Cloudy apple juice color. Light tangy tropica; fruit, mild bittering, some gentle grapefruit. Thin body. Nice enough. A bit watery. Good nose. But these hops might work better with a maltier base, perhaps in an IPA.

(On tap) Hazy yellow with good white head. Pleasant pine and fruit aroma. Light body with good carbonation. Very refreshing with plenty of tangy exotic fruit up front and then a smooth gentle mid-palate and some bitterness in the finish. A very refreshing beer.

The Australian Pale Ale a random beer picked up from World Beer Market via Rakuten. Currently on sale for 250-300 yen for 355ml, imported by Konishi. 4.8% this beer has the look of a Pilsner but a surprisingly fruity hoppy punch on opening. The label says Galaxy hops and it does indeed give me a passion fruit aroma. Raspy mouthfeel & light bodied. The taste is crisp, tropical fruit hoppiness then chalky light malts. Decent but it would benefit from a more balanced malt bill. Quite good for the price.

Mild pine hoppy nose. Lemon, sweet citrus, peach, strange salty carbonation, quite dry finish. Not so bad, a light citrus hop pale (golden?) ale despite the odd carbonation.
