2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12.7-oz bottle. Cloudy dark yellow color with a small fizzy head that disappears rapidly. Aroma is lightly malty, yeasty with light apricot notes. Flavor is moderately sweet and with some sourness. Hop taste is diminished. Clean finish. Body is light, texture is watery to oily, carbonation is soft. Has the feel of a wheat beer. Overall it’s a nice beer. But there is nothing remarkable about it. It’s not really a pale ale though. What is it really?

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Foamy white head that retains well. Good carbonation. Cloudy yellow appearance. Good consistent flavour for a mass produced beer. Slight sweetness and mild hops complement a smooth malt flavour. An easy drinking beer

Excellent large scale commercial ale offering from the famous truly Australian beer co. An ’everyday’ beer that consistently delivers

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
375 ml bottle - Firstly I'm a fan of the bottle and the label, great artwork and branding. Hazy cloudy yellow with a constant and heavy carbonation which gives it a crackle carbonation much like soft drinks. Increasing sweetness on the palate and abrupt but pleasant after taste.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 375 ml into a Guinness pint glass, ABV 4.5%
Bright golden yellow colour on the body, slighty hazy, with one finger of white head. Good retention, light lacing on the glass.
Aroma of grains, a bit nutty too.
Taste is medium sweet but with a nice light bitterness on the finish and on the aftertaste. Grains, yeast, some spices.
Medium body, average carbonation.
Overall okay, easy, for mindless drinking.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours pale, cloudy liquid with no head. Bready aroma with a hint of fruits. Taste is kinda bland, a little sweet and a little bitter with no finish (except some unpleasant sourness). Basically no body, oily textured and lively carbonated. Pale ale that’s very lager-like - not the one for me.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
375ml bottle at home. Pours a hazy off yellow colour with almost immediately no head. Aroma is very weak, picked up some hints of fruit but not much else. Taste is sour, with some hops; okay if you like that sort of thing but really not to my taste. Very watery and overcarbonated. Probably a good summer beer but disappointing.

2.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not a convincing pale ale - more lager like and a good one - yeasty - really this ale is a thirst quencher - nothing complex here.
