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.

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.

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 it’s 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.

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

Best breasts on a beer label. There’s 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. It’s the kind of images that accompany James Bond theme tunes. It’s not as striking as the label for their Ace of Spades stout but I wouldn’t mind the maiden’s phone number. The beer’s pretty tasty, too. It’s 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)

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.

BarossaLuke (537) - 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.

maneliquor (2780) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 13, 2011
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 isn’t entirely off putting like most. Plenty of piney hops in the taste with additions of citrus and grass. Good brew

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!

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.
