Dervock (432) - Emu plains, - JAN 25, 2014
Bottle - pours light gold with a nice dense layer of bubbles. Lots of hops-resin, nettles, floral. Taste is nicely balanced not as sharp as the Roma first suggested, up front taste is peach with a long transition to a moderately dry finish. Mouthfeel is creamy. Great beer!

ALLOVATE (2334) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 22, 2014
Produces up a yellow gold, just shy of bright and with soda-like effervescence. Head goes up and falls at a similar speed. Mango and passionfruit dominated nose with a yeasty bite and bready undertones. Watery palate. Highly effervescent with a carbonic acid bite. Sudsy, muddled crispness to the finish with a medial bitterness subdued by the carbonation. Yeasty, bready with passionfruit and mango coming through and lasting after each swallow. The carbonation is beyond annoying. Pretty average stuff! (33cL, no date stamp, Cellarbrations Carlisle)

mattyhennessy (253) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - APR 17, 2014
Pours a golden yellow with a small white head. Very light bodied with a strong ?signature Feral? Easily the best of the style that I have tasted. I usually find golden ales to be quite bland compared to their pale and IPA cousins. Hint of wheat and a dry finish. Perfect for summer

maneliquor (2995) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 2, 2014
Bottle from Mane Liqor. Pours clear straw with a fluffy and sticky white head. Nose is all about the zing and zest of citrus with some heavy stone fruits. A solid sweet yeast behind it all. Belgian inspired but hop forward stuff - think zesty lemon rind and peach. Very quaffable and quite balanced. A Summerís day drink. Solid stuff

KeefOz (835) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - APR 2, 2014
Poured a cloudy pale straw colour with a two-finger white frothy head that retained well and laced OK. Carbonation low with small bubbles. Aroma subtly of light malt and strong but very nice sweet floral and spicy hops. Taste of light malt but over-ridden quickly by strong but nice tropical fruity and spicy bitterness. Light body. There is a hint of cloves (wheat) aroma as the beer warms. Smooth, crisp, very refreshing.

Light hoppy aroma. Clear golden colour with big fluffy head. Mild resinous flavour with low malt profile. Light body with med carbonation ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

floydian1 (898) - FNQ, Australia, - MAR 1, 2014
330ml bottle from BWS. Hazy golden body beneath a pillowy white head that reduces to a stable lace. I get aromas of lemons, apricots, grapefruit, pines and golden malts. Palate is smooth and refreshing with a medium body and bittersweet flavours making for easy Summer drinking. Mildly resinous hop finish. No complaints here.

The beer pours a light misty golden colour with a small white head that hangs around for a while. It is a medium bodied ale with a lively carbonation. The aroma is very pleasant and quite robust for a golden/blonde ale with passionfruit and floral notes filling the nasal cavities. The taste starts with light bready malts for maybe half a second and then the hops come screaming through with tropical and stone fruit featuring. The flavours finish with a firm bitterness and a semi dry finish making this one hell of a refreshing drink.

bgb1991 (105) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 17, 2014
Definitely signature floral aroma. Golden straw pour with a dishsoapy head. Not very attractive. Spicy taste is a combo of carbo and the hops. Thin malt body doesnt provide much. Refreshing, not outstanding.

Rosslew (180) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 13, 2014
First thing that strikes you are those floral hops. Slight citrus, vanilla smell. Smooth on first taste. Almost a crisp, icy sense on middle tongue. Slightly underwhelming finish. Got the Feral malts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
