Jado (486) - Camp Hill, - NOV 10, 2012
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.

330ml bottle. A lively clear amber with a lasting, lacing one-finger white head when poured. Fresh, aromatic citrus fruit aromas with gently toasted malt notes. Crisp and lean with fragrant citrus, tangerine and lychee-styled hop characters to taste with subtle biscuity malt notes to balance. Lingering in the finish with a pithy bitterness. Light to medium body and medium carbonation with a firm, dry palate texture. A solid example of the style with balance, freshness and intensity. Paired well enough with curry too.

The first time I tried this beer I was on holidays, I didnít expect very much and was very surprised. Having returned home I bought a six pack at the local. it still has a nice golden colour, but it is a bit of a letdown after that. very drinkable, but not enough body or flavour.

mattyhennessy (252) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - MAR 17, 2014
Pours a light copper/amber with a small white head. Aroma is dominated by citrus and pine sweetness. The flavour is built on a very sweet malt surface with strong sweet citrus, floral and butterscotch. Very easy drinking, but not overly complex. The aroma is let down by the flavour slightly.

motelpogo (6203) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 5, 2014
bottle, picked up at bws in broadbeach. clear reddish amber with a minimal head; aroma of pine and caramel; nagging hint of boiled cauliflower flavour but with enough pine and grapefruit to offset it. decent session beer

Bathory (458) - Bryne, NORWAY - JAN 19, 2014
Poura a see-thorugh light copper colour with a small white head. Nice aroma from citrus, grapes and peach. Flavour is more bready and earthy, some tropical fruits also. Light and short bitter touch in the finish. Medium body and quite soft carnonation. A quitr nive beer.

M_Sack (336) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 13, 2014
Bottle. Medium gold/copper with minimal head and a small amount of lacing. A subtle, although dominant aroma of citrus - grapefruit, passionfruit and lemon blossom - with a backing of malt biscuit. Underwhelming flavours include a touch of pine, grapefruit and bready malt. An upfront dry bitterness. Quite simplistic and perhaps lacking a solid malt backbone, but reasonably refreshing ad drinkable.
