In my opinion the best pale ale out there. Strong hoppiness, lasting bitterness. Great price too

A cracking all-rounder of an ale: refreshing, tart and punch-packing, able to be drunk all night, and a winner with a host of food options. Spanner.

UPDATED: JAN 21, 2007 Yellow coloring. Smooth and buttery with a light fruity taste, which I could not identify. Waterside Hotel, Melbourne.

I get torn between whether this beer is great or whether it is simply ordinary. Today I purchased a six pack for the first time in a number of years and yes it went down well but is it a Pale Ale I’m not so sure... Worth a taste if you are looking for a lagerish style.

I rather liked this. For a mainstream beer this has a gorgeous golden colour and white head, an aroma of gooseberry and grapefruit hoppiness that comes through well in the flavour. This is a beer I could happily reach for several times.

This is actually OK. I dont have wet dreams over this shit, and I agree that its not as flavoursome as Coopers equivalent, but a damn fine way to get pissed at the Botany View watching cricket on the big screen (its about 0.7% stronger than Coopers too). When they have this on tap, i dont get anything else: a perfect summers afternoon beer. Lion Nathan, hands off!!!

This beer is refreshing enough, fresh aroma, supporting malt with a sturt hoppy finish finishing with a lingering bitterness. Not a bad lager, it stumbles against coopers though, but is superior to cascade draught. a beer you can drink and drink and drink and drink.....cheers

Man, I like this. Not a pale ale but a lager I would think. Nice hop bitterness and malty taste, but not overpowering. You could drink this one all night if you could get past the 5% ABV. Quite easily drunk and much better than VB and the like. Cheers folks.
