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.

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.

Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pretty surprised with this one. Pours a cloudy orange with quite a big fluffy white head. Aroma brings out sweet caramel malts and some piney hops. There is a slight musky aroma in there as well but it isnít entirely off putting like most. Plenty of piney hops in the taste with additions of citrus and grass. Good brew

bluevegie (3071) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 20, 2008
Almost clear, honey/amber body with a compact but lasting head. Hops on the nose upfront that carries through to the taste without overpowering. Good beer but not always my favourite style.

Davros (2810) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 29, 2009
Caramel pour with a lasting small head. Lots of c-hops in the aroma, presumably from intense dry-hopping. Some grapefruit and floral notes but mainly dominated by pure fresh hops aroma. Clean sweet malt first up upon tasting followed by more fresh hop flavour and a hint of grainy malt. Too much carbonation.

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?

Bottle at the Tramway hotel. Strong character both from malt and hops. Aromas of caramel, grass, and citrus. Taste is sweet, with bitter notes, average length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Amber, with a frothy head.

Great to see some beers packaged up in old skool 600ml brown bottles. Brown orange in colour however the body is quite murky. Thin white head hangs around quite well. The aromas seduce me completely; sweet fruity apricot, a touch candied, but somewhat striking. Follws up quite well in the mouth as the apricot stays largely in tact. I can see why some may find this a bit sweet and to be honest I did find the beer thicked up quite a bit on the finish. Still, better than 95% of other Australian beers and provides lotís on encouragement to seek out the other brews.
