Bottle- Pours a deep golden color with a decent head that fades to some lacing. Aroma of malt sweetness and a bit of citrus and spice. Taste of Caramel sweetness with a touch of spice and bit of fruit in the background. Mild bitteriness and a clean finish. Fairly medium body, smooth and easy. Decent drinker but could use a bit more character.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not too bad, for me, if they could fine tune the flavor some, that would vastly improve the beer. Poured at a good temperature with a thick, stable, off-white head and some lace. Color is a clear honey amber with some bubble trails. Aroma is fresh beer with malt and mild hop and toffee. Flavor’s like nose, but some harsh mineral qualities and medicinal show up. Body and carbonation are good. Finish is like flavor and unfortunately the bad flavors tend to linger.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle) Slightly hazy pale golden amber with thin head. Pleasant aroma - fruity and grassy. Light body, very well carbonated, although a little brusque. The taste is dominated by hops, in a rather odd way. There is quite a bit of bitterness in the finish, and hops are present throughout that taste profile, however they are not terribly exciting somehow. There’s some pleasant light malt and some refreshing citrusy notes. Maybe my palate is jaded today; I felt I should have liked this more, but somehow it didn’t excite, but it is very drinkable.

Bottle. You smell the watered down hops. Very dull. Taste is super easy drinking. Boring pale but expectations are low

330mL bottle BB 21/3/14
Clean golden body, holds a small suddy head.
Offers a good whiff of grassy, spicy, cooked citrus and unripe melon hop on the nose. Not much malt character to mention.
Medium-light body, texture is somewhat soapy, moderately high carbonation with some bite.
Hops from nose don’t translate too well to palate. Some pale/pilsner malt character, add a touch of corny DMS, then unripe melon, bitter orang rind and dried grassy/woody hops. Finishes with a firm, somewhat unclean bitterness.
Not terrible, especially for one of these "private label" beers. With an everyday case price less that $50, it’s decent value when not much else is on offer...otherwise happy to avoid.

330ml stubbie. BB 03/04/2104. Poured a translucent golden amber with a thin off-white bubbly head that diminished quickly and laced OK. Medium carbonation with medium to large bubbles forming trails. Aroma mildly of floral/sweet hops as well as a touch of spice. Taste initially with minor malt sweetness quickly followed by a mild and pleasant hops bitterness. Light body with a watery mouthfeel. Light with a moderately long pleasant bitter finish. OK.

Light gold pour with a quickly dissipating head, malty aroma with a little grapefruit but fairly light smell. Sweet, malty, very light thin flavour with just a touch of fruit. Just average

I like it, too many autralian breweries go way over the top when trying to imitate an american pale ale. This beer has a good aroma followed by a distinct taste thats still sessionable
