3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Poured a deep amber-brown with a small but lasting white head that left some lacing. The aroma is dominated by tropical fruits, notably passionfruit, with a little pine note coming through as well. Taste is initially fruity, but soon the caramel malt takes over, leaving a fairly thick taste in the mouth. Not my favourite pale ale, but a lot better than a standard lager.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Restrained citrus pine aroma in an amber pour. Hop malt balance is pretty much textbook - as is the sustained mild bitter finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Burleigh Brewing, pours a clear copper golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out gentle piney hops and biscuity malt. Flavour is balanced, with biscuity malt and light piney hops. Dry and fairly restrained. It’s alright.

Good local brew. Golden colour, white foam. Quite a strong fruity flavour. Excellent Aussie version of an American pale ale.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
I was 5 years old in the summer of 1974. The Commonwealth games were playing on the black and white TV inside and I was outside in the tyre swing hanging from a plum tree. The late afternoon sun in the hot, dry summer of the northern Wairarapa was a beautiful gold and I was thinking about how cool it would be to do a pole vault. When I went inside my dad was cleaning his gun and watching the track events and Mum was putting some meat through the mincer. Mum gave me a bone to gnaw the left-over gristle off and Dad gave me a few fingers of beer in a glass to wash it down with. I swear it was THIS beer. It smelled of a clean simple biscuity malt, slightly dusty in the heat, noble-ish hops and the faintest tinge of green apples at the back. The afternoon became even more golden.

THis is a fruity-citrus beer that is consistent and balanced from aroma to finish. I admire the consistency, this makes it solid. Not really my style but something a little different from the ordinary.

330ml into schooner glass. Great nose, freshly mowed grass and pepper. Amber beer with thin white head, bubbles on side of glass. Bitter, thin and flat in the mouth. Finish is creamy with more hop bitterness. Looks a lot like XXXX but tastes much better. Interesting, sessionable.
