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

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can. Pale amber with a largish white head. Rather weak but pleasant aroma with caramel, spices, some floral notes. Lowish carbonation, rather watery. Bland carmale sweetness, faint spices, modest bitterness. A bit insipid.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear amber colour with an average dull white head that becomes a bit thin after a few minutes but leaves a few spots of lace on the glass. Aroma is citrus, grass, and light grainy sweetness. Flavour is citrus, grass, mild bitterness, and sweet caramel maltiness.

This isnít bad, and it isnít good. Nowhere near great, nowhere near terrible. Itís balanced, thoughtful, but just average in the end.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from Darbyís Liquor, Vancouver
Hazy blond color with small head. Dry mouthfeel but not weak, with delicate malt aroma and flavor; the hopping provides enough bitterness but not much quality, just a light citrusy touch and some mild resins.
But in this warm summer afternoon it works very well.
