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.

Choos (729) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - JAN 17, 2009
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.

jdpeebs (686) - 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

BarossaLuke (552) - 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.

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

Chrism86 (294) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 24, 2008
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!

sinkas (293) - Perth/Fremantle, AUSTRALIA - JUL 12, 2008
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.

Nicko (223) - Ashfield, AUSTRALIA - SEP 10, 2009
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 iíve tried. Much more balanced and sessional.
