COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

mkel07 (3017) - 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 (1741) - Northern Beaches, 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 Light to medium body, medium carbonation and a soft intensity, medium length bitterness in the finish that is superseded by a tangy aftertaste of slightly grubby mid-fruits.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 (341) - 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 (531) - 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 (2334) - 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)

Choos (590) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - FEB 7, 2014
Aroma: initial funky giving way to a malt base. App: amber and lightly hazy with a tan head Flavour: some date and malt Palate: finishes caramel and a touch of hop ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jado (489) - 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.

Davros (1859) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 20, 2013
Pours amber with a quickly fading white head. Aroma of artificial bananas, vegetal notes, cereal grains and spicy, grassy hops. Similar flavours, more grainy cereal notes with some metallic characters. Body feels watery.

Bif (1380) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 15, 2013
Pours a clear copper color with a small head that fades to bits of lacing. Aroma of mild citrus, some malt sweetness and grain. Taste of mild malt sweetness, some grain and bit of citrus. Quite dull actually. Mild bitterness and a fairly clean finish. Body seems light for the style and short on flavor. A decent non-offensive beer. probably closer to a Euro-Lager that a Pale Ale. Bottle label is "Coldstream Crisp Pale Ale" but suspect this beer is just being renamed.
