davidm (1926) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 11, 2010
Bottle 330ml. Great, tasty beer. Aromas of caramel, flowers, and grass. Taste is sweet, with bitter notes, and long length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Brown, with a lasting, frothy white head.

UPDATED: MAR 20, 2010 From a 330ml bottle on 21/3/2010. Somehow the name of this beer seems inappropriate - sounds like a boring pale lager, which couldn’t be further from the truth. This a dark, bottle conditioned treat. Smells great - very malty and hoppy, with dried fruits. The flavour bursting with malt and fruit, and has a fabulous, satisfying bitter finish. A lovely beer which is full of character.

Thylacine (526) - Tasmania, AUSTRALIA - DEC 23, 2009
Bottle- Cloudy, dark orange with a huge beige head. Low to medium carbonation. Medium to full bodied. Sweet, caramel, custard, bready, slightly spicy. Some nice hop flavours in there but low to medium bitterness.

jonno (2129) - JAPAN - NOV 22, 2009
Starts out with a lovely full bodied blood orange colour. Nose is doughy wih a hint of hops. In the mouth it is med to full with the aroma profile unfurling on the tongue. Decent, but i would like a bit more hops in the finish.

Bottle. Pours with an average sized tan head over a brown amber body. Aroma of ryebread and resin and taste of caramel, toast and resin. Finishes with a light bitterness. Medium body; well carbonated.

hawthorne00 (2253) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 12, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2011 Stubby. Aroma: bread and grapefruit. Dark copper with a little cloudiness even with a careful pour. Modest but persistent light beige head. There’s enough chewiness and malt to balance lingering medium hop bitterness. [3.7]

Muddy copper with a persistent pale beige head. Aroma of caramel, bread, grapefruit, pine. Biscuits, caramel malt with grapefruit. Lingering bitter finish. Maybe this has got bitterer over the years or the hops have become more American-accented. First couple of these for quite a while and I like it as much as ever.

floydian1 (825) - FNQ, Australia, - SEP 6, 2009
330ml bottle. I was half expecting a golden lager! Appears murky orangey brown with a negligible off white head. The aroma is largely sweet caramel malts with a light floral hop presence. The palate is medium bodied with a smooth mouthfeel and flavours similar to the nose. Certainly no marked hop bitterness to the finish despite what it says on the label. I still like it though - it is nicely refreshing and malty without being too rich and filling.

Davros (1806) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 2, 2009
Pours garnet/pale copper with a creamy somewhat persistent head. Quite a powerful aroma of resinous hops, sweet caramel malt and a bit of citrus. Lots of caramel flavour with what might be some sweet crystal malt later on. Hop profile is limited, but finishes with a prominent green hoppy bitterness. Good mouthfeel with a great laid-back carbonation. Really loving these malty English pale ales I’ve been having lately.

Dervock (404) - Emu plains, AUSTRALIA - FEB 14, 2009
Poured a dark orange. Very, very malty aroma and flavour; it almost smells like a can of home brew concentrate. Very nice malty flavour, but not much of the "intense hop bitterness" the bottle promises. Despite the lack of hop this is a beautiful beer!
