3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

a good pale ale, nothing exceptional but not too bad. Brewboys have never really been my favourite brewer

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

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

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 didn’t leave me wanting any more. Australian Pale Ale Style?

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.
