Pyobon (978) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 4, 2010
Bottle. Hazy amber brown, no head. Sweet aroima with a hint of honey perhaps. Medium body, light carbonation. Sweet and tangy foretaste with a reasonable bitter finish. Overall a decent beer but not exceptional. I had expected more so was disappointed - however it is very drinkable.

Another brewboy beer that ticks a lot of boxes but ends up coming short. Nose is caramel and toffee. Lovely gark orange colour. In the mouth it is malt centric, with a prick of bitter hops to finish off. Medium to full bodied for the style. Just didnít leave me wanting any more. Australian Pale Ale Style?

mkel07 (3739) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - FEB 5, 2010
330ml bottle. Looks great when poured with a nice tidy off white head sitting above a hazy apricot coloured body. Citrus and flowering rose aromas come through at first. Flavour lets it down a little as it is not quite as strong or flavoursome as other American Pale Ales, but overall not a bad effort.

BarossaLuke (540) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 12, 2010
Amber in colour. Aroma is lightly malty with faint fruity hop aroma. Palate is also more on the malt side with balanced bitterness. More an amber ale than pale ale to me, good none the less.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 29, 2009
30/01/2009. 330ml bottle. Hazy amber with an airy creamy-looking light tan head. The haze is my fault, it looked bright in the bottle but I dropped a little yeast in... looking back Iím sure this was a good thing. Throws a big fruity, almost winy, aroma of currants and cranberry. Gingerbread. More dark fruit, bready malt and a little toffee malt in the mouth. Moderate bitterness cuts through the malt character along with the spritzy carbonation and slight spicy yeast bite. Really nice complex ale that Iím positive will taste "homebrewish" to people who donít know any better. A Belgian pale ale perhaps, possibly even more so a funky English pale ale. Iíd love to know what yeasts theyíve used in this. Wish I had another bottle too! I just hope it stays this complex and this balanced... Iíve tried a few beers like this that have íturnedí. Look forward to trying more Brew Boys - certainly characterful! Thanks Highlandlad.

Light amber colour, small head when poured. Strong aroma, hints of apple. Harsh when swallowing.

TimE (3373) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 25, 2009
Light amber color. Minerally nose with a touch of apples. The mouth is decidedly hop accent with little malt backbone. Apples. Straight forward bitter finish. Simple, but decent.

UPDATED: APR 28, 2011 Bottle. Pours an almost clear copper with a inch of off -white head. Head is well-retained. Fine looking brew. Smells of caramel malt and grass/ citrus hops with some stone fruits and spices. Balanced, but the malt plays second fiddle to grapefruit bitterness. Long bitter finish. Leans towards the English end of pale ales a bit. More restrained than some Australian APAs but not at all a cop out. [3.7]

Amber with an inch of off-white head that laces well. Aroma has caramel, nectarines, pine, graprefruit, spices. Oozing rather than bursting with hop aromas - not the freshest of maybe. Lightly carbonated mouthfeel. Taste has some fruit sweetness, a little biscuit, decent finishing bitterness. About half American and half English. Subtle and classy drop.

Best breasts on a beer label. Thereís a concept for the next RateBeer annual awards. Off the top of my head, I can think of contenders from Cantillon, Amarcord and whoever makes that crappy Belgian lager with the scratch-off bikini. This South Australian APA is another, albeit a notably tasteful and discrete entry: two nude maidens diving in side profile. Itís the kind of images that accompany James Bond theme tunes. Itís not as striking as the label for their Ace of Spades stout but I wouldnít mind the maidenís phone number. The beerís pretty tasty, too. Itís a hazy bronze with a short but enduring cap of suds and a nice ripe aroma of peaches, lychee, caramalt and a nose-prickling gingery note. Creamy palate with some early spritz fading to a soft finish. A little indistinct in flavour profile after that promising start. Some toffee malts and sour summer fruits. Quite a phlegmy, bitter finish. A solid APA and very sessionable. Is this the best brewer in South Australia? (330ml bottle from Platinum Liquor)
