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 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.

On tap is decidedly different to bottle. Both OK, but on tap better. Mild aroma of pine and citrus but you have to work too hard to get it. Pale golden colour white head. One finger of foam. Not crystal clear, but not overly cloudy either. Head, holds OK and lacing OK but not great. Refreshing with some hops up front only mild bitterness. As the commercial deScription states, it is an easier-drinking style.

345 ml bottle. Great thirst quencher on a warm day. Solid white head, very refreshing with good mouth feel and dry fruity taste. Delicate after taste that lingers.

On tap at Charming Squire, Brisbane on 3rd September 2015. Hazy gold with shallow off-white, lacing foam. Fresh citric and fruity hops in aroma. Hoppy liquid, rather like a Pilsner, such as Urquell. Lemony citric finish. Light bodied with a zingy mouthfeel.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
345ml bottle, 03/08/15. Bright, straw colour with a disappointing, dull, off-white head which quickly disappeared but left traces of fine lacing. Aroma of .................grain......vegies......maybe? Light to medium sweetness, hint of bitterness. Just downed my last mouthful without paying attention to the palate. Sticky sulphur in the finish. Drinkable but not particularly enjoyable. 4.

Aroma is good here. Like to drink 150 in Australia as itís very refreshing on those warmer days. Clean and smooth and easy to drink.

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.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.
