First of all, itís a low alcohol brew in green glass at a liquor store thatís two years old. And it smells and tastes like it. This is just a basic bland beer. Absolutely nothing special about it. No idea why they went to all the trouble to label it this way, unless theyíre trying to hoodwink folks. Smells skunky, taste has some of that, plus common bitter, some tang, some sweet, short lived. thatís about it.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
330mL bottle BB 03/01/14 Possibly off tap at one point..?
Clean pale gold body, head dies off pretty quickly.
Aroma somewhat stale - reminiscent of the typical "imported green bottle lager" stink you tend to get over here, ie, light struck. Some honeyed maltiness, some hop citrus, but hard to see past the skunk.
Light body, somewhat watery, medium carbonation.
Honeyed malt, touch of hop spice. Finishes somewhat abruptly, low bitterness, lingering light struck twang.
English pale ale!? Since when? More like a poorly made lager

WTF? This tastes like mass-produced big brewery lager - that is: flavourless, neutral swill - and a mediocre one at that. But lacks the crispness of lager. Dull on the tongue and the senses. At least itís only 4.2% which is a mercy. Yuk. A disgrace to Australian craft beer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Smells & looks like a European Lager. Bright & clear with an excellent long lasting head.
Tastes like one too, not my favourite style, but pleasant enough. If a little watery & dull.
Would be OK on a hot day or after sport

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Gold pour with thick white head. Aroma - nothing special - wet, grassy, slightly off note. Taste is like a generic pale lager only not as awful - a little sweet at first, nothing really stands out apart from grain and sweetness, then unpleasant sour, slightly metallic finish. Not great, just nothing very interesting

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured a hazy golden amber colour with a few millimetres of white foamy head that diminished quickly and laced OK. Moderate carbonation with small bubbles forming trails. Aroma of grassy hops and a trace of malt. Taste initially mild sweetness followed by a sour but very faint hops bitterness. Light body. Although there is a slight hops bitterness finish it is not that hop driven for a ďHops Vintage BeerĒ.

No real aroma, dry taste and after, mild sweetness so salty.. a terrible tribute to your hop suppliers

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle. Pours a yellow golden amber, foam white head leaving alittle lacing and aroma of malt & grassy hop. Taste is malt caramel, light grapefruit & orange citrus and grassy hop bitterness. Light bodied, medium carbonation, dry light bitter finish. Quite OK.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Iím sitting here feeling like Iíve just cracked a macro lager as I sniff this one in the glass. Thereís that corn syrup flavour that overwhelms a modest hop presence. The taste is saved at least a little by a sour yet strangely flavourless hop taste. Not much to this. I could get a Becks cheaper and enjoy it a whole lot more.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a slightly hazy yellow colour with a small white head. Aroma is malt, bread, citrus with some hoppy notes. Taste is light sweet leading to a lightly bitter hoppy finish. OK.
