3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is clove, lemon grass, light roasted malts. Taste is very pale malts with a somewhat basic and undesirable hop profile that is slightly funky. Appearance is a pale gold with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz can poured. Had this a few times over the years, never knew I hadn’t rated it. Pours a clear golden color with a lasting head. Love the can by the way. Chained up on all 4. Might be entering another can phase. I love those. Here we have a nice, easy drinking, tasty pale to enjoy regularly after a long day at work. So refreshing. Mild grainy, malt aroma. Flavor matches with an obvious hop presence, that sticks around late into the palate. Gotta love a pale that won a gold medal when I was in early grade school, and it’s still going strong today. I like this stuff.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice white head atop a slightly hazy orange/honey brew.... surprising lacing lasted the entire glass.
Smell is something different.... It reminds me of a brewery during a boil... a slightly cooled wort... grainy... sorta heavy pale malts with a significant grassy/earthy hop presence... but the hops are definitely restrained.
Tasting the brewery not so much in the flavor.... but is definitely there in the finish... pale malts (English?)... and a little sweetness is balanced by enough bitterness... but the tail end is short but lingering earthy/piney hops is very much appreciated. Palate is spot on for an APA... sorta creamy/minerally finish.

Can from Copper and Oak. Pours bright golden with a white head of large bubbles. Citrus and spruce on the nose - quite highly carbed, malty/biscuity background that is well balanced with piney hops. Solid APA - have had worse, good price for Australia too.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours gold with a white head.
Nose shows sweet clean malt and piny, resinous hops.
Similar flavours, some bready note though. Reasonable hop bitterness.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Run of the mill APA, very faint hoppy aroma, taste is initial hops, then nothing. Body borders on watery. Might be a good gateway beer for a lager drinker.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear amber, not much carbonation, one finger head with good lacing. Taste starts with citrus (lemon) and floral mixed with caramel. Bitterness linger at the end, but it doesn’t layer your tongue, enjoyable.

Wasn’t really impressed with this. Some dank aromas and flavors. I found this to be watery though. Very average stuff.
