I think it’s better than what the score suggests for a pale ale. Pretty classic cascade hops aroma and taste but well balanced. Great local (for me) session beer all year round.

Pours hazy golden colour with medium white head. Subtle hop fruitiness of melon. Medium body, good carbonation, dry finish. Moderate bitterness to finish, decent pale ale

Oakes (14671) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 19, 2016
Hazy light tan. Fresh, pithy hop aroma has a light floral character to go with the earthiness. Berryish and floral with a fair bit of bitterness.

From a bottle. A little over carbonated, malty aroma, sharp flavours with mild bitterness.

gnoff (9417) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - OCT 11, 2015
Draught as part of a tasting paddle at The Australian Hotel on October 9, 2015.
Cloudy to murky amber to orange color, off-white head. Herbal hoppy, malty, mineral, bread crumbs taste. Herbal aftertaste. Fizzy mouthfeel, medium low bitterness. Malty, herbal scent.

TedE (792) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 15, 2015
Pint on tap @ The Palisade, The Rocks. Golden beer, solid white head, slight haze. Distant floral hop nose. Light carbonation. Light body, metallic hop taste. A bit of fruit in the finish but still too tinny for my liking. Not great.

Fruity hop aroma. Cloudy golden amber colour with good head and some sediment. Strong toffee and caramel flavours to start with some hop bitterness. Coffee and dark chocolate feature in the finish. Medium to heavy body with low to medium carbonation.

orange_3084 (127) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 13, 2014
Pours hazy golden colour with medium white head, but becomes clear as it warms up. Spicy floral aroma that’s pleasant but not remarkable. Thin bodied. Taste is of flowers bordering on detergent. Little malt character, with just a touch of biscuit noticeable as the beer warms.

Bottle from Mane Liquor. Easy drinking pale has a nice fresh hop precense and clean after taste. Not amazing but not really a bad word can be said

Muggus69 (1867) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - DEC 23, 2013
330ml bottle. Bottled 130813 Good looking beer; holds a firm dense inch of head atop a clean deep golden body. Restrained aroma; toasted, lightly nutty malt with subtle hop fruitiness of melon and citrus rind. Medium body, good carbonation, dry finish. Body continues with nice toasty malts and floral, lightly fruity hops. Moderate bitterness to finish, quite clean overall. Decent pale ale, seasonable for sure
