COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

This pale ale is an aromatic expression of the Australian summer. Ella, Galaxy and Topaz hops conjure the scents of native wildflowers and the refreshment of the Fremantle Doctor on a summers afternoon. Best served chilled, budgie smugglers optional.

Bottle. Big fruity hop aroma. An initial blast of fruit and citrus hop flavour is followed by a dry biscuit finish. Supremely drinkable.

humlelala (950) - DENMARK - APR 18, 2014
(50 cl bottle from Vino Wines; BBD: August 2014) Pours a clear amber with medium, white head. Decent retention and lace. Aroma is citrusy from hops with a biscuit note from the malt. Some nice hopsmin there - a pity they are not any more present in the aroma. Oily texture, medium carbonation, medium to light body and a dry, crispy finish.Flavour is moderately bitter with very little sweetness.

JohnRMurdoch (3195) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAR 26, 2014
500ml bottle from Hippo Beers. Amber brown, not much head. Tropical fruit & grain aroma. Biscuit, citrus & tropical fruit flavour. A good but not outstanding golden ale. Bit disappointed with this one. Had higher expectations.

Beersiveknown (2765) - NORTHERN IRELAND - NOV 16, 2013
Bottle at home from alesela
Dark amber with white lacing. Spicey hop aromas with more subtle peach in behind. Medium body and carbonation, digestive biscuit malt and vegetal hops with some bitterness in the finish. Some honey notes past its best I think

AshtonMcCobb (2352) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 10, 2013
50cl bottle from Appellation Wines. Appearance - light amber with proportional head. Nose - lemon and hay with some honey in the background. Taste - more lemon and hay, lemon again on the finish. Palate - medium bodied with a fairly textured middle and a long dry finish. Overall - thirst quenching, definitely a hot weather pale/golden ale.

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 16, 2013
Pours a little darker than amber, orange and general citrus fruits on the tounge. A custard cream finish, then a something a little dark and dry long after i’d finished. A nice beer.

BenH (2162) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 8, 2013
Bottle. Golden with little white head that disappears to a ring. Aroma is all hops, grapefruit, lots of tropical fruit notes. Taste follows suit all hops, grapefruit and mango with just a little caramel and biscuit in the finish. Medium body, quite dry but not insanely bitter like I’ve come to expect from these guys, very well balanced and easy to drink. I could hit up endless pints of this, exactly what I want from this style, one for the hop heads. Bottle consumed in about 2 minutes
