3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma: suprising amount of crystal and other biscuity malt aromas well balanced by fruit and hop. Appearance: orang with an attractive haze with a lasting white head. Flavour: generous bready malt with a great balance of passionfruit. Palate: nice and thick with lasting sweet malt and clean hop. Overall I was very suprised how good this is.

Bottle - Light copper with a frothy white head which lasts down the glass. Flowery hop and peach aromas. Flowery hops up front then a hint of biscuit and a nice dry finish without being harsh. Medium bodied. Nicely balanced.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2009 Poured hazy amber tending copper. Substantial off white head that dissapates quite quickly. Aromas are really appealing! Sweet malt present with apricot and some citrus fruit. Palate shows more of the same, sweet confectionary-like apricot and grapefruit but thats about it. Finishes short, without any substantial bitterness to balance the sweetness. With a bit of tinkering this could be a cracker!

Bottle (640ml) Carlisle Wine Bin, WA
Aroma of mild american hops, poured a rather hazy deep amber, excellent malty mouthfeel, with a refreshing crips finish. One of the best Aussie APA’s I have tasted.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clean golden amber, unexpectantly clear; been conditioned in the fridge for a few weeks which helps i guess. I might stir up the bottle a bit for the second glass. small frothy head and low carbonation. Definitely not as much cascade/amarillo intensity, or as full bodied as a lot of local APAs going around that i’ve tried. Much more balanced and sessional.

golden, not much head. aroma and flavour of sweet chewy malt and tropical fruits: mandarins, mango, orange, pinapple maybe. pretty tasty and refreshing.

I had this off the tap at a pub in Adelaide months ago and was wow-ed by it, the beer was fabulous. The bottle version (this rating) is a little disappointing in comparison. Dark amber with a nice persistent head, looks fantastic. Nice aromas of fruit and sweet sugars. Clean and smooth with light carbonation favors the malts. Overall a really nice beer and will buy it again; but if you can get it on tap don’t hesitate to try it. This my second Brew Boys beer and I’m really impressed with what they are doing.
