2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not a bad beer, but nothing on a good english ale. On early whiffs I couldn’t quite decide if it was more pasteurised English ale or dodgy Australian lager. Thankfully it tended toward the English after the head receded. A bit too much of the boiled lollies smell, but it had a pleasant enough fruitiness. Flavour is a little bland. Reasonable enough, but underwhelming

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle) Pours clear coppery brown with small white head. Subtle pleasant aroma of toffee malt. Light body, good carbonation. Nice taste, although rather understated (or am I drinking this too cold?) - good toffee malt with some nice gentle bitterness at finish. Pleasant enough beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured a crystal clear deep coppery colour with a thin off-white cap/collar that laced poorly. Aroma of slightly sweet malt. Taste initially of subtle roasted notes followed by subtle sweet caramel malt and sweet toffee then a very low level tangy bitterness. Light body, a bit thin. Smooth, soft and clean with a short low bitterness finish. OK.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
375ml bottle into shaker. Mild sweet malt nose. Copper coloured beer with fluffy white head. Light steady carbonation. Full bodied, light zing. Subtle malt taste followed by distant fruit and bitter hops. Late finish is smoky caramel. Everything is subdued and understated, just as a good bitter should be. Excellent beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, up in the mountains, watching the pademelons eat dinner. The aroma is quite fruity - classic caramel and fruity yeast English beer. Caramel and quite fruity on the palate, bit sticky in the finish with a hit of bitterness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
5%ABV. English pale ale.
Tapped out a deep clear Amber. 14°SRM.
Nose has some nice esters. Floral nose, and when tapped out for me at the brewery in Launceston, had the faint aroma of summertime lavender. For me, this was just one of those lovely epiphanies.
Mouthfeel is sudsy. Roasty malty flavors predominate with a very nice hop balance to ensure a nice clean finish.
Bitter hop finish that for me was medium.
A very nice effort.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poures a dark orange - reddish clear beer, with a nice and stable head, the first aspect that you get is the nice roast malt aromas like nuts and caramel that comes from it, an then when is tasted the sweet flavors appear, although the bitterness prevail being evident even at its finish, not should be tried too cold, otherwise several characteristics might not be appreciated.
