TedE (598) - 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.

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 (1617) - 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

Jado (691) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - NOV 26, 2013
From 330 ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy copper-amber with a thin white head and light carbonation. Aromas of pineapple, passionfruit, lemon, baked bread and a touch of honey. Taste starts out with more tropical fruit at the front before a zesty bitterness with a little pine hits in the mid-palate. Slips away to a light citrus finish with an oddly bitter aftertaste. Medium body. A bit muddled but very drinkable.

330 ML bottle Clear honey color. One finger white head that falls to a thick film. Some strips of lacing here and there. Nose is some muddled but bright citrus, stale bread, and slightly earthy. Taste is earthy pine and grapefruit, stale bread, and a lot of carbonation. Crisp grass comes and goes in waves. Slightly thin and watery. Heavily carbonated and becomes grassy. Dry finish. Unmemorable
