2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Wizard Smith, what a name for a beer; my expectations were low from the moment the lads appeared at the front door with a sixer of this stuff. Pale copper, thin head. Lightly hoppy aroma, showing the typical Boags restraint. The hops are quite earthy, though there are no dirty flavours, in fact there’s not a lot of complexity going on here. A fairly typical English pale ale, quite pleasant to find one fresh and locally brewed.

Bottle- I’m just updating my records. Probably the best of their range with the honey porter.

A solid English pale ale with the use of dry hops that is found in tasmania. A Little Light for a EPA.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap in the pub @Stanley. Average, copper coloured attempt at an EPA, which means it’s good compared to other beers from the big brewers available in Tassie.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Rating from 2007. Nose is faint. A bit of english hops and manufactured toffee. In the mouth it is thin, with burnt toffee and off flavours prevalent in macro beers of the ilk. To be honest could pass as a pale lager in the way it comes through.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light copper coloured with small head. Has some nice caramel mal aromas and slight English hopa too. Palate is light-med weight with caramel again and a dry finish. I think this is Boags only true ale but it still has a Boags character to it, meaning lager like in body and carbonation. Its too light to be a good English style pale ale to me.

...nice pour, reddish light brown with a small white head. The nose was definitely hoppy, with malty flavors, and good grain flavor, and some grassyness. Did taste like an English Ale, looked like one too. Finished malty and clean. Nice.

Must be this mob’s best beer? Not much of a claim of course! The Golding hops are used to great effect and provide a very genuine English Ale feel with nice earthy / grainy flavours running right through the palate. Malts revert back to macro averageness and there is too much fizz, but, not a bad effort from these guys.
