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.

bmeup (576) - Ormeau, AUSTRALIA - APR 3, 2013
UPDATED: APR 8, 2015 Can from DM. Very pale, cloudy and thin looking.... nice head though. Almost no malt, maybe a little straw. Definitely Galaxy hops in there with citrus and a little passion fruit, but the beer pleasant as it is, is sadly unbalanced. Quite spritzy and a little thin with a tropical character in the finish. 5.4.15 re rate to new score. Fresh can and all changed, hops and malt balance is great and up to 10. Side by side another Oz SAW PA, this just jumps over it in leaps and bounds.

Bought at Dan Murphy’s. A great galaxy single-hop beer. Lovely bitter, citrusy notes in the aroma and on the palate. Not too malty, a good hoppy summer beer.

Maris (1169) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JUL 4, 2013
From a 355ml can on 4/7/2013 (labelled ’The Pale Ale’). Pours a quite cloudy light straw with a medium head - a very odd looking beer. Has a lovely light fruity aroma, with some citrus and passionfruit. There’s lots of passionfruit and more sweet citrus in the flavour, with a slightly dry, relatively firm finish. Has quite lively carbonation and a medium body. This is a very nice beer - quite similar to a Knappstein Reserve Lager, which is a good thing. I’m quite liking this brewery’s work so far.

Rosslew (320) - AUSTRALIA - APR 24, 2014
Pours wheat colour. Nice aroma. Floral. Great taste if a little spritzy. Got citrus, maybe a bit of cantaloupe. Light in mouthful. Pleasant finish. A lot better than expected. Works from a can. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Avondje slecht souvenirbier van vrienden proeven :)
Iets troebel goudblond van kleur met fatsoenlijke witte kraag. Lekker hoparoma, erg fruitig. Tropisch fruit. Geldt ook voor de smaak. Wel wat weinig bitter en had iets meer koolzuur mogen hebben, maar deze springt er zeker uit vanavond. Aangename verrassing.

ALLOVATE (2652) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 8, 2014
Into a tulip, chilled. Brilliant, medium gold. Highly effervescent with a sudsy and loose white head of foam. Hefty and raw pine-needle, forest-floor nose; very clean with hints of tree bark, vine clippings, eucalypt, camphor and elderflower. Dry; parchingly dry in fact. Clean and streamlined with a very raw and rough flavour profile like the nose. Pine-wood, gritty palest malt, haybales, dusty herbs. Moderately bitter finish, floral and herbal with a touch of spice. Spritzy to lively in carbonation and on the light side in body. There is only a light hint of fruit in the linger, citric, and almost distant. Very quaffable. Leaves you parched and in need of more. Not a bad drop at all. (33cL can, BB 26/12/14, Dan Murphy’s Cannington)

mattyhennessy (376) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - OCT 14, 2014
Pours a clear straw-golden with a foamy white head. High carbonation. Very piney aroma with strong cut grass notes. Light citrus and floral notes. Very dry. A pleasantly light body with a simple malt profile. Hops balance.well, delivering noticeable bitterness and excellent citrus fruity character. One for a session

GenkiGonzo (657) - 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.
