1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2011 Pours a mild lemon colour with a head that diminishes quickly. Aroma is similar to a wheat/fruit beer with cheap ale yeast/malts.. is this a pale ale?? Taste is also very similar to a wheat/fruit beer.. very low IBU. I would not buy this again.. If there are hops in this beer they are very few and far between and its certainly not an American pale ale.

Pretty bad beer, but at least it is drinkable, an ok alternative compared to the normal crap on tap at most Pubs.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance - Golden straw colour, light carbonation, low head retention, good clarity
Smell - Light Malt, Banana, Kiwi, mandarin.. Overall fruity, not a strong aroma
Taste - Light carbonation, light hops, malt sweetness, mild fruit flavours. Little after-taste
Mouthfeel - low/medium weight with light carbonation.
Drinkability - Light beer of which you could drink a few, needs more carbonation to make it more drinkable. A drink to guzzle on a hot day
Overall - Not a bad beer, but generally bland and uninspiring
Printed on the side of the bottle :
A clean finishing, Australian-style cloudy pale ale for cracking refreshment. Malted what adds to it’s refreshing character and a concoction of hops creates fruity aromas with hints of passion fruit, grapefruit & citrus

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap. Cloudy golden in the pint glass. Faint hops and malt, but not as nicely balanced as other pale ales. Average looking, average tasting. Nothing really stood out about this beer for me. Smooth finish. Not terrible, but not something I would go out and buy either.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
(Bottle) Slightly hazy straw colour with tiny white head. Aroma of grapefruit with some floral and cardboard notes. Light bodied and moderate but quite coarse fizzy carbonation. Flavour is overall rather watery and light. It starts quite pleasantly with a nice balance of citrusy tartness and very light malt sweetness. However it then falls rather flat followed by developing a not very pleasant rather metallic bitterness. Not James Squires’ best.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
I took of the top and poured away. It may have been my mind playing tricks, but this appeared almost green in the glass with no head to speak of and a faint haziness. Ah well, thinks I, lets have a snort. My nose isn’t insubstantial and can usually detect a good raft of aromas. From this I got a dollop of gooseberry, unripe greengages grapefruit and other aromas that suggest either this beer is a little young or a little bit... well... anyway. The first taste made me think I was going to regret paying for this. It was just a bit rubbish if I’m fair. I got that green fruit and a flavour of chewing on leather and leaves. Mercifully, this subsided after a few more mouthfuls and it became a much more pleasant session pale ale. However, I would point out that I would drink it again if it was put in front of me, but I will not be paying for the pleasure thank you.
