Brewed using Nelson Sauvin and Amarillo hops this sessionable pale is sure to please. ďOne Fifty Lashes is a refreshing Australian-style cloudy pale ale with restrained bitterness and a clean, smooth finish. Itís an easier-drinking beer than others in the James Squire range and a familiar style that Australian beer drinkers will recognise. The use of malted wheat also adds to its refreshing character delivering a beer with a fruity nose and hints of passionfruit, grapefruit and citrus,Ē

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 isnít 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 Iím 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.

RafeAU (365) - Kingston, AUSTRALIA - MAY 1, 2015
On tap in Canberra. Note itís definitely an Australian, not American, pale ale; closer to English style I think. Light straw colour, slightl malt sweetness, bready, some subtle hop aroma and flavour. Refreshing but pretty ordinary.

Sandog_au (37) - Gladstone, AUSTRALIA - APR 30, 2015
345ml bottle from Dan Murphy's. Pours a foggy golden amber colour with next to no head. Carbonation is weak at best. Aroma is vaguely tropical fruit and a little spice. Flavour is slightly fruity with a little bitterness. Mouth feel is average.

floydian1 (1155) - FNQ, Australia, - APR 10, 2015
On tap in Cairns. Widely available throughout Australia. Hazy light golden with a thin white head. Nose and taste is simple sweet grainy malts with a light tropical hop presence. Medium-light bodied. Unremarkable.

anstei (268) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAR 9, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2015 On tap. Pours pale yellow. Non-existent aroma, weak taste, but still a pale ale. Could be worse.

TedE (444) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 10, 2015
On tap. Hoppy fruity nose, quite inviting. Slightly cloudy, highly carbonated, good white head. Taste is floral hops followed by mild bitterness. Itís OK. The fact that this beer is now widely sold on tap alongside complete swill must be a good thing.

Morboso (105) - ECUADOR - JAN 4, 2015
Lemons just, okay-good pale lager, no great scent or finish, buy only if cheap. Need to add more just for word count

olio (7424) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 28, 2014
345 ml bottle @ Timo A.
Pours clear golden color with a small head. Some faint hops, grass and herbs on the nose. Fruity flavor with faint oily hops, hay and resin too. Nothing offensive, simply too watery and bland.

Special aroma is imprrssive. And less carbonic acid gas than steamrail golden ale. Good.
