Drinkable slightly better than average beer. Pretty well balanced too. Don’t know if I’d buy it again but I also wouldn’t talk poorly about it.

7 May 2004 - Sampled AIBA 2004 - Slight fruity spiced aroma. White head, Nice cloudy look, brown and thick lacing. Fizzy but not cidery, light body, and taste doesn’t linger. Doesn’t inspire but provides pleasant relief.

This bottled brew poured a small sized head of finely sized mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a poor lacing. The body was very hazy with suspended bubbles and yeast floating in it and a dark yellow orange color. The aroma was mildly doughy and malty and the mouth feel was

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A very drinkable golden ale. Fruity aroma and flavour, and with a slightly bitter hoppy finish. Nice in the summertime, but quickly forgotten though.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2004 Lovelly cloudy apperance, produced by the yeast multiplication in the bottle conditioning. Very robust fruity flavours. Just so well balanced. Excellent session beer. A bottle o around the corner has had it on special now for at least 3 months @ $40 AUS a case. Have lost count of the anount bought, but getting close to a palate. Craps all over the other domestic regular beers. Well worth the extra money. If you have problems convincing people to go the extra money, just argue that its 5.6% abv, and therefore 0.6-0.8% more alcholic than VB, New, Old and all those other uninspiring beers. So when it boils down to it you aren’t paying that much more because in effect you get a few extra beers worth of alcholic satisfaqction. I love this beer, just so accomodating.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy beer with a lot of head. Lots of stuff floating around in the glass. Taste is like a summer beer with its fruit hints. Bland on the first taste but slightly better as it goes down.
