Some citrus / pineapple flavours hit the palate initially. This is followed by some malty sweetness. Not much bitter. Quite a reasonable effort at the pale ale.

Strong and large ale with loads of hops and lots of fruit. Tasty but not a good session ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bif (1564) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 20, 2012
Bottle- Pours a dark copper color with a decent head that fades to some lacing. Aroma of pine and bit of citrus with some malt sweetness and grain in the background. Taste of pine with an easy malt sweetness and bit of grain. Mild bitterness with a fairly clean finish with just a bit of linguring sweetness. fairly medium body, smooth and a bit creamy. Nothing spectacular. Easy drinker, good for a couple.

Tried on draft - very pleasing pale ale with little head, nice hops, little after taste. Great sessional. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330ml bottle- Nice golden honey colour, with a little white head. Subtle hop aromas. A pleasing pale ale.

DeliriumT (368) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 3, 2012
Very grassy aroma on this pale amber session beer. Drinkable, but would benefit from some more interesting hop combinations.

Dervock (506) - Emu plains, AUSTRALIA - JAN 6, 2012
Bottle - Golden pour with a thin white head. Strong resin hop aroma (almost oil like) that dominates. Big dry floral hop taste up front, followed by some citrus and a moderate dry lingering finish. Moderate palate, slight fizz.

Pyobon (979) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 19, 2011
(Bottle) I wasnít expecting much of this, but found it really quite drinkable. Pours very clear coppery gold with a short lived thin white head. Has a lovely aroma of tropical fruits with floral and hop hints. Palate is pleasant enough: medium body with very slightly oily / creamy mouthfeel and lively but rather coarse carbonation. Flavour has an excellent start with tangy fruitiness with nice balancing sweetness. It loses its way a bit in the middle becoming rather thin, but finishes with quite decent bitterness. Overall, I certainly wouldnít call it a great beer but I found it a pleasant, refreshing and readily drinkable one.

Davros (2041) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 12, 2011
Pours amber with a small head. Nose shows tropical fruity, caramel and some spicy hops. Flavours are pretty sweet, lots of caramel. Also soft passion fruit. Pretty much not bitterness to balance it. Could use more carbonation. Apart from being cloying this wasnít bad.

ALLOVATE (2477) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 27, 2011
Pours a deep amber and bright as bright with post-mix-like carbonation. Lax, Force carbed head disappears quick. Esters of pineapple, apricot and a lot of passionfruit hit the nose, sweet and ripe with little else showing. Extremely sweet, biscuity and drawingly tangy in the mouth. Big wads of apricot, clammy pineapple in back, a fairly evasive, subdued bitterness, mild rubbery and plasticine-like phenolics late. Medium to light in body, very lively in carbonation. There is nothing here to excite and itís clumsily presented. (33cL, BB 01/11/11, Dan Murphyís Morley)
