nate2g (1548) - Boomtown! / Waikato, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 17, 2009
Bottle. Pours dark amber with a lasting off-white head. Aroma and flavour of biscuit, tropical fruit and caramel. It has a chewy mouthfeel and definitely drinks as if itís a higher abv and gravity than it actually is. Sweet and bitter finish. This has great flavour and a nicely balanced pale ale. Good stuff.

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)

eczematic (1306) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 30, 2008
Brown-orange with chill haze, low carb and thin white head that sticks. Smell is fresh bread and tropical fruit and vanilla. Warm and full english malt flavour and tangy us and nz hops, passionfruit jam spread on brown bread. Good bitterness balanced all the way with malt body. Big flavours balanced well, a good aussie compromise between english and american styles.

bluebetty (1019) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 10, 2011
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange amber with smallish cream coloured. Looks a little flat in the glass. Aromas of light caramel, honey and some grassy hops. Flavours were fairly straight forward. Malt sweetness up front with some resiny hops on the finish. Very soft carbonation. Not the nest but great as a session ale I suggest.

fletchfighters (1010) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 12, 2012
poured a golden amber with a quick fading head. Mostly floral smell with some lemon citrus notes. Taste is a lemon biscuit due to the amount of yeast. Clean, crisp beer. Well balanced Good session beer

Maris (914) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - AUG 16, 2011
From a 330ml bottle on 16/8/2011. Pours a clear golden/copper with a big head.Has a slight grassy, fruity aroma. Flavour wise, there is a touch of sweet fruit (particularly citrus) but the main feature is a quite assertive, almost tangy and very long bitterness. This is more an English pale in my view, and quite a decent one.

Pyobon (859) - 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.

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.

jdpeebs (687) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 19, 2012
330ml bottle. A well rounded full body with intensely inviting citrus and floral hop aromas, robust caramel malt back palate, well balanced with lingering bitterness

Dredd (684) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - SEP 29, 2009
sweet fruity apricot aroma with some hoppy undertones, deep orange/amber colour with nice white head. Flavour is a mix of citrus and apricot fruit with a bit of a hole in the mid palate and short finish. Good, but room for improvement.
