We’ve crafted this 2010 Vintage bottle-conditioned beer as a brightly coloured pale ale, straw yellow with a slightly golden hue. Lime zest and lifted white floral Amarillo hop aromatics combine with Galaxy driven grapefruit, grassy and orange undertones. Elegant palate with textural mouthfeel. Late season Pilsner, Munich and Crystal malt deliver spicy fruit that is balanced by a freshening minerality from a touch of wheat malt. Citrus and passionfruit acidity is complemented by a lightly spiced orange peel back palate that gives the beer persistent length. Very fine and restrained but with complex citrus and floral characters. Bottle conditioned for complexity and longevity.

Without a doubt among the best beers I had in Australia, which still could more accurately be described as among the least bad beers I had in Australia. Clean and well made. Some hop bitterness, some hop citrus, some malt backbone, some floral notes ... but not much intensity along any dimension. Stick with the Semillon or the Sauvignon Blanc.

Bif (2049) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 17, 2013
Pours a cloudy copper color with a good head that fades to nice lacing. Aroma of citrus, with fruit and quite herbal. Taste of citrus, light malt sweetness with a hint of herbs. Mild bitterness and a fairly dry finish. Fairly medium body, smooth with a decent balance. Easy drinker but nothing spectacular, good for a couple.

Pours a cloudy orange with a white head. Aroma is yeasty with some fruit and wheat. Taste is also wheat with some fruit and yeast and spices. Not bad.

Bottle thanks to my beautiful wife. Bottle is perhaps a little old now but never the less. Pours a light amber with a rocky off white head. Aromas are quite subdued. Some floral hops, a little light caramel and some floral honey. Flavours are a little lack lustre. Perhaps a little sweet malt and some hop bitterness near the finish/ Easy drinking but not much else.

Bottle - Pour cloudy orange. orange floral hop aroma with a hint of caramel. nice balance malt and hop flavour, not the driest pale ale finish but a very likeable one.

Davros (2782) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 28, 2011
Pours amber with a fading head. Nose shows light fruity hops with white grapes and passionfruit at the forefront, very reminiscent of a white wine. Underneath is soft grainy malt. Very similar flavours, although the malt is a bit more assertive with bolder grainy and bready notes. A little plain but pretty easy drinking and refreshing.

Beersiveknown (5053) - NORTHERN IRELAND - AUG 12, 2011
Light amber, lightly effervescent beer with no head. Characteristic peach aroma from galaxy hops which folllows on into the body. Fairly thin with a dry astringent finish. Acidic with a hint of sweet malt. Needs to be stronger to carry the hop complexity.

Pyobon (1300) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 6, 2011
Bottle. Slightly hazy pale gold with little head. Nice aroma - citrus, passionfriut and floral hints. Light body and carbonation, perhaps lacking a bit of body. Refreshing flavour with the malt well in the background and the lively interesting hop from start to finish. That is not to say it is dominated by bitterness, there isn’t much, although there is a little pleasant bitterness in the finish. Rather the complex tangy and floral hop flavours are in the forefront. Overall this unusual flavour is refreshing and interesting, but lacks a bit in balance and body. (And as someone else observed, whoever wrote the label should concentrate on brewing beer - it’s bad English and drivel.)

Bottle 330ml. Not bad, quite well balanced. Aromas of caramel, citrus, and straw. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness and good length. Palate is lively, with a medium body. Amber, with a thin head that doesn’t last.
