3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. English pint glass. Pale amber, cloudy beer. Not much head but plenty of carbonation. Refreshing in the mouth, thin and bubbly with some fruitiness and a different sweet/sour battle going on. Aftertaste is minimal, keeps you drinking it to remember the taste. Would be a good summer refresher and does not give a clue to its 5.8abv. Wish there was a date on the bottles to let you know how old they are. Also, tastes better when poured with the sediment.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light citrus nose. pale gold color with light lacing and not much head. The flavor is pretty mild, lightly bitter but overall a bit starchy it seems. When you pour in the sediment, it really transforms into a pretty decent little beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lots of carbonation which detracts from the appearance and slightly so from the palate but overall a nice fruity mixture that hides the alcohol well. Easy to drink.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
this is a real gem of an ale, nice yeasty fruity aroma. This has a well balanced flavour with a really nice fruitiness and balance of bitterness and maltiness. This is proof that Australia can make a great beer consistently without having to be too "fancy". Other beers come and go, but this is a beer that is definately a stayer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
well bittered, cloudy appearance if poured with the sediment sparkling pale amber if not, very tasty and easy to drink, good session beer. go and get a carton, if it's too bitter try the more mellow pale ale.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Extremely easy to drink, that is about all I can say about this. Cloudy and musty appearance, with little to no aroma.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
A wonderful, easy to drink ale. It is a nice orageish-amber color that is rather cloudy. The head is rather small but fragrant. This is a perfect beer for a nice summer day in WA.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2014 Malty and yeasty aroma which came across to me maybe slightly nutty and slightly fruity. Looked great when I finally managed to pour the yeast into the glass (285ml glass not big enough for a 375ml bottle silly barman). Smooth and easy drinking with a little bit of fruit and a little bit of bread flavours. I had had this once before but the bottle was lacking any decent quantity of yeast (maybe too old or too young didn’t check) but this was really a decent drop with the yeast.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
light irange-like aroma, cloudy dark orange in colour, small head and lots of small floaters, highly carbonated, bitter and tangy fruit taste, pretty reasonable.

Nicely done beer. Good yeasty notes, as well as some fruit and some fizz.
