KeefOz (854) - Tarragindi, - JAN 24, 2013
Poured a translucent pale amber colour with a white one-finger bubbly head that diminished fairly quickly. Laced OK. Low carbonation. Aroma of floral hops and sweet malt. Taste mostly sweet caramel malt; not hops driven as per their label. Light body. Short clean malty finish. Average.

Bottle. Bland smell and bland taste. Maybe I had it a bit too warm but even then I would still like a bit more flavour from this

drpimento (2186) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 12, 2014
Poured at a good temperature with a smallish off white head that didn’t last and no lace. Color is a little hazy amber. Aroma is a pleasing malt, hop, fruit, caramel, toffee, spice, funk. Flavor’s like nose, but is more coarse. Mainly it’s bitter up front, then tang, little bit of malt sweet, then hop flavor, not much blending or complementing. Body’s ok except the bitter/tang thing is a little over aggressive and just doesn’t all work together. Finish is like flavor. Again this beer would benefit greatly with improvement of flavor.

@brewery. A tasty beer with a sweet slight floral aroma. Goes down really nice. Nothing in this beer is overpowering.

Cloudy amber pour with a decent white head. Floral aroma dominates with malt. Taste is malty, sweet, light bitterness. Not bad.

floydian1 (904) - FNQ, Australia, - APR 27, 2013
330ml brown bottle. Hazy amber-gold pour with medium sized white head. Soft caramel malts, honey and floral hops on the nose with similar flavours on the tongue. Pleasant smooth mouthfeel with a nice dry hop finish. Certainly not as hop driven as many other APAs but still good.

Aroma’s of floral and malt, caramel You can Taste a medium sweetness, light body, thin feel, soft carbonation. The floral hops are noticeable, and quite sharp. Overall pretty tasty. Side note - head was useless, disappeared quicker than than charlie sheens cocaine

330ml bottle. pours dark orange in colour with a good white head. An enjoyable beer. A good balance of malt and hops to make it interesting and very drinkable.

maneliquor (3009) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 7, 2012
Tap at the brewery. Murky amber pour with a small off white head. Nose is dominated by toffee malts with a light pine hop behind it all. Not the hop bomb that the staff said it was. Very caramel malt dominated with light pine through the finish. Sticky mouth feel. Average

ALLOVATE (2356) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 15, 2012
A decent effort all round. Had that ridiculously easy drinking harmony of flavour that makes a killer session beer. It poured all lively and fierce, a surging, billowing, rocky crown, just off-white, that streams up and holds, well fuelled by the ruckus below. The body a honey tinged, hazy amber. Subtley sweet, tangy marmalade and Golden Syrup, toffeish notes on the nose with little flickers of hay, guava and bitter grapefruit. A shift in the mouth towards candied pear, spiced apple, grapefruit and a little marmalade. Oddly it is mostly dry across the palate; a sunny, toasted malt flavour is quite pronounced. The hops in check, fresh with a floral, earthy hint on the swallow. Everything is delicately placed but not hidden. The body light and carbonation adequate, the finish clean with light hop and malt fading off quickly. I like it. More a Golden than APA, but each to their own! A nice drop if it was your local. (33cL, 5.2% ABV, BB 11/10/12, Dan Murphy’s Currambine)
