3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From 330 ml bottle. Pours a lightly hazy gold with a thin white head and light carbonation. Aromas of lemon, peaches, pine and flowers. Taste is more robust than expected, with a firm grapefruit and lemon zest bitterness dominating. Finishes fairly cleanly with a touch of pepper. Zesty citrus aftertaste. Pretty good golden ale that strays into IPA territory.

Beautiful golden colour, huge head with good lace. Smells of fresh citrus and grapefruit - tastes of grapefruit. Palate is disappointingly thin and a little over carbonated.

Bloody hell - this is brilliant - distinctly grapefruit - mouth wateringly so - makes me want to drink this fast - little bit of malt impact in the aftertaste which suits me to a tee. Fan-fuckin-tastic, Drunk on a hot evening by a thirsty fellow.

There’s a hint of the Pacific Ale about this one, with pleasant tropical fruit aromas but a more significant hop presence in the mouth. The only critcism is that the malt is a little mild for a Golden Ale and the palate a little thin. Very nice Summer ale.

This is a very good golden ale although not sure it’s a 3.76 average. Plenty of orange and citrus early, particularly in the aromas, but these fruits quickly turn bitter and hoppy in the mouth. Hop treatment is very classy; sharp and well defined. Excellent presence for a sub 5% beer.

Tap at Mane Liquor. Pours a clear straw colour with a fluffy 2cm of head. Stone and tropical fruit hop aroma, grapefruit quite present. Nice bitter hop flavour with a touch of light caramel malt. Super hoppy and bitter for a golden, nice crisp finish. Awesome brew!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Easily a contender for Oz’s best beer in my opinion, this little gem from Bone yard just had me wanting more and more. From its sunny pastel yellow body rises a laxing yet tight pad of white. A fin lace left in its wake. Aroma is just bursting with fresh ripe fruit such as tangerines and nectarines, bitter blood orange and cantaloupe, Chenin Blanc wine and a little peach - lovely, fragrant, seductive. Dipping right in it is juicy, supple and fruity fresh on the palate continuing on from that engrossing aroma. Boldly and assertively bitter, herbaceous and lasting in the finish with a drenching amount of fruit sinking in on the tongue and holding there for so, so long. This is wonderfully balanced between bitter, sweet and sour with an undertow of soft malts. Whilst the carbonation is quite low it still manages to dance well. It edges being vinous but is controlled under a bucket load of artistically utilised hops. I love it, I need more of it. Doesn’t get much better than this!!

330ml bottle from Slow Beer. Very murky and hazy wen poured into the glass. Pours the colour of honey and has a decent sized head of white foam. Sultana grapes in the aroma along with peach and nectarine. Pleasing in the nose and in the mouth with very little bitterness and a soapy aftertaste left on the palate.
