2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle (375ml). Poured a golden yellow with a frothy white head which was mostly lasting. Aroma was of cornish malts, honey and some grassy hops. Flavor was of sweet/cornish malts, honey, a very light hop bitterness, mild lemon and some faint grassy notes. Light bodied with lively carbonation, dry nouthfeel, watery texture and a ok finish. Not the worst pale larger out there.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
(Can 37,5 cl) Pours a clear, golden with a neat, white, lacing head. Sweetish malt aroma. Medium-bodied, a little low in carbonation with sweet notes of malt, brewing cereal and an edge of cardboard. There’s actually a discreet whiff of hops in the finish and also some alcohol presence. But Pale Ale? Not really. 240108

375 ml bottle - Clear gold with a thin white head. Medium body and carbonation. A bit of sweet malt showing through but really rather dry with a strong PoR hop character and medium bitterness. Quite different to the average Australian Pale Lager and quite enjoyable and refreshing.

Bottle. Pale yellow in colour with a frothy off-white head. Average carbonation and fair lacing. Moderately bitter and thin bodied. Sweet, slightly malty, with a crisp dry finish. A little watery but refreshing and a not bad pale lager.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
In the can from a sampler pack at the Sydney Airport Duty free shop. Golden yellow in color with a white head that doesn’t stay around very long. Slightly malty compared to the light version, but still thin in body with little to attact your attention. Hops are only vaguely present.
