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 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.

sm89walt (1783) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 5, 2014
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 didn’t 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.

wasn’t expecting too much from this but it was a pleasant surprise. A little watery but very tasty. Good amount of hops. Very drinkable. My friend Barry says "overall it’s a 7.5/10"
