This pours with almost no head at all. It is a caramel colour and has hints of caramel in the taste. This is not too hoppy for a pale ale however it has a bitter after taste.

Maris (989) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JUL 12, 2011
From a 330ml bottle on 12/7/2011. Pours a slightly cloudy golden, with a big head. Has a nice fruity aroma (esp passionfruit) with some yeast and bubblegum notes. Flavour wise, itís a little less involving - just a bit of fairly non-descript fruity sweetness, followed by a quite decent hop kick. Not a bad drop.

UPDATED: JUL 28, 2011 bottle. 33cl. Pours hazy orange brown. Nice aroma of hops and malt with a hint of honey and slight spice. little residue of yeast. white head, with lots of lace. sweet with a long finish. not too carbonated. drinkable.

KapitiCritique (345) - Xincheng, Henan Province, CHINA - OCT 1, 2010
On tap at Hashigo Zake Aroma: slightly toasted not something that jumps and makes itself obvious; Appearance: murky light brown, minimal head and lacing; Taste: slightly sour, medium bitter Palate: light to medium body; thinnish texture, average carbonation, short finish; Overall: Not really that remarkable

ndon (857) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2010 overly sweet with a slight tinny flavour. tropical fruits and citrus come through with a light bitterness at the finish. a lot better than their english pale ale, though

davidm (1928) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - DEC 22, 2009
Tap. This is a great APA. Aromas of grass, and grain. Flavour is long-lasting, and predominantly bitter. Velvety in the palate, and medium-bodied. Amber colour, with a creamy long-lasting head.

mickmac (484) - Ngunnawal, AUSTRALIA - DEC 20, 2009
Bottle. Pours with a small average white head over a cloudy red gold body. Aroma of grapefruit and passionfruit. Subdued/modest piney-citrus taste. A full bodied-oily mouthfeel.

donfardz64 (538) - Wellington, New Zealand, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 14, 2009
Pours hazy golden, white head. Nice fresh hop aroma - citrusy lemon.
The flavour follows suit with a clean body and zesty hops. A very to-style APA: tasty and refreshing.

hawthorne00 (2428) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 20, 2009
UPDATED: DEC 24, 2011 Bottle. Pretty cloudy pour with visible sediment. Orange, large off-white head that fades. Grassy hops and cantaloupe nose with some dusty sweetshop aromas. Big late-hopping attack, followed by fruits. Not quite enough malt for balance and slightly bubbly mouthfeel. Could use a little more bitterness at the end, too. But nice stuff - it seems like an expression of the style rather than something thatís been tinkered about with to get a result. [3.3]

Growler. Nice aromatic hops, but less to back it up. Mango, guava, oranges, again dusty, again could use a little more bitterness. Refreshing.

BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 18, 2009
Bottle. Hazy golden orange body with a bubbly white head that quickly disappears. Fruity, hoppy nose with notes of pineapple, melon, peach, passionfruit and caramel. Flavour is a little sweet and has lots of resiny hops as well as notes of citrus, caramel and stonefruit. Highly carbonated, medium to light body and a nice bitter finish; this is a nice beer, a bit rough around the edges, but overall quite pleasant and refreshing.
