3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Transfer from BA review on 4-30-14-
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a clear golden color with a one finger head of fizzy white foam. The head fades super-fast leaving only a trace bit of fizzy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is very light overall with just a light level of caramel sweetness and a little bit of a bready and grainy smell. Along with these is a very light grassy smells as well.
Taste – The taste begins with a rather crisp and bready flavor with a good level of graininess right upfront. Along with these flavors are some flavors of a very light caramel and light fruit flavor of apricot and peach. The fruit flavors grow in flavor as the taste advances sweetening the brew as the taste moves on. Along with the sweeter fruit flavors some light grassy tastes to leave a clean and moderately crisp flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner side with a carbonation level that is on the average side. A slightly higher carbonation level may have been slightly better for creating a greater level of crispness, but even with that side the feel was rather nice for the style and still made for a rather refreshing brew.
Overall – A very easy drinking pale ale, a good one to sip leisurely.

From 12 oz can. Pours a clear golden amber with a thin but lasting white head and lively carbonation. Aromas of tropical fruit (papaya, melon), crusty white bread and a bit of lime. Taste is fresh fruit at the front end before a prickly zesty bitterness washes across the palate. Quite a clean finish with a light fruity aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
A well balanced and very pleasing fresh crisp pale ale. Just the tonic for our Australian climate.
A great attribute is that it is not one of these OTT hoppy US ales that have flooded the market down here in recent times. This is far more sensible and appealing pale ale that would and does appeal to the larger market.
I have passed a few around to my mates and all have thoroughly enjoyed it which is a pretty hard task with most them.
My beer for the summer!

Pours clear golden with a foamy white head. Light stonefruit and floral aromas. Some citrus and honey. Very light bodied. Some.biscuit and toffee, well balanced. Low carbonation and very sessionable, but nothing really going for it over other pales
