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.

Easy drinking but not really stand out for this style. Limited head formation, low bitterness and little hop character evident.

Off tap from Due East, and 1000’s of other places in the past... Ar: not much some fruitiness and Citrus as expected for a Pale Ale / Ap: Golden and clear, minimal off white head / T: Nothing spectacular, lightly sweet and lightly bitter / P: light, pretty thin, average carbonation, slightly bitter finish / O: Pretty much the stock standard tap Pale Ale now, decent and drinkable, but nothing spectacular or special.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear golden beer, small head, standard carbonation malty aromas, some cítric ones also are felt. The flavour is quite simple not too much from the hops is present, and the end is bland. Neither the best nor the worst of the beers I’ve tried so far.

Bottel with cook bay oyesters in Cairns. This is a pretty boring APA without much of he Nelson Hops to distinguish it from the pack. A bit of a let down.
