A thirst quenching pale ale brewed with a unique infusion of New Zealand and U.S hops, which lead to a delicate warm malt palate against a tropical fruit & citrus character. Generous hopping ensures the initial sweetness dries to create a crisp zingy ale, adding to the overall refreshing bitterness effect of this beer.

uckelman (648) - Durham, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2016
Pours clear, light amber. Just a ring of head. Jammy, grassy aroma. Very watery, almost no body, which is unexpected given the jammy aroma---usually that aroma comes along with beer having more legs than this. Not a lot of taste here, just goes right past.

sarauckelman (420) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2016
Mild aroma. Clear amber with slightly scummy head. A nice balance of hops with a bit of grains underneath, and a slightly bitter aftertaste. Clean and light bodied.

Muggus69 (2142) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JUN 6, 2015
330mL bottle Pale gold holds little head. Bit thin, seems watered down. Some hop citrus, but mostly skunky. Restrained bitterness, soapy finish. Not good

mkel07 (5226) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUL 6, 2014
330ml bottle from Dan Murphy’s. Rating from January 2014. Golden amber colour that is also pretty clear. Even balance of hops and malt makes four a nice beer.

sm89walt (1972) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 25, 2014
355ml bottle. Maintains a rather pasteurised malt and boiled sweet character throughout with mid-fruits, grain and gentle toastiness. Light to medium body, medium carbonation and a soft intensity, medium length bitterness in the finish that is superseded by a tangy aftertaste of slightly grubby mid-fruits.

M_Sack (623) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 17, 2014
Bottle. Golden colour, fairly clear, thin head with strong lacing. Initial malt aromas with just a hint of spicy hop. Quite a sweet caramel overtone with some faintly pine like bitter hops towards the end of the palate. Not particularly well integrated. I think these guys have gone downhill since my visit to their brewery 2 years ago.

Brenhophead (695) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 2, 2014
330mL bottle. Pours pale golden with a very small white foamy head. Grainy/appley aroma which reminisant of apple pie, odd. Slight zingy fruitness to the flavour with a doughy/biscuit malt backing.

ALLOVATE (2912) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 14, 2014
Pours a sunny orange with fine, streaming carbonation. Soppy, flat white foam that holds on for the length. Quite a malty aroma with licks of lemon, pear drops and passionfruit. Hints at granola and toasted grain with a touch of puffed wheat cereal. Sweet and tangy, almost tart on the palate. Light in body with a lively effervescence. Cereal-like malt comes through. Mild, earthy hop and sound bitterness but nothing too bouncy. Drinkable but not really a concerted effort in aroma or flavour. Average! (33cL, BB 24/10/14, Dan Murphy’s Currambine)

Jado (778) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - JAN 26, 2014
From 330 ml bottle. Pours a clear golden amber with a small white head and pretty lively carbonation. Aroma is subdued, but I get some sweet biscuits and light lemon. Taste is fuller with biscuit malt up front overtaken by some zesty lemon and pine hop notes. Clean finish with a very light lemon aftertaste. Light but refreshing.
