2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Served on tap (need to re-rate once buy bottle) - pours with a thin white head, fruity aroma, moderate carbonation, light bitter aftertaste - not much to say about this fairly ordinary lager - not as nice as most other beers in the James Squire line up.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap in Canberra. Note it’s 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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

bland, not hoppy, tastes like lager, dull appearance, cereal taste, flat finish uninteresting

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap. Hoppy fruity nose, quite inviting. Slightly cloudy, highly carbonated, good white head. Taste is floral hops followed by mild bitterness. It’s OK. The fact that this beer is now widely sold on tap alongside complete swill must be a good thing.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lemons just, okay-good pale lager, no great scent or finish, buy only if cheap. Need to add more just for word count

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.
