ComradeK (1060) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - MAR 9, 2009
On tap at The Lansdowne Hotel, Sydney. Pale gold in colour, with a smooth, fine head. Fruity aromas predominate. The flavour is highly hop-driven. It is mostly floral hops, but some smooth fruity hints. A good one for a muggy Sydney summer day.

TerenceHua (87) - , SINGAPORE - MAR 9, 2009
Refreshingly light golden coloured beer. Nicely carbonated with grain, malt and citrus aromas. Its flavour mirrors its scent, save that the hops are very evident on the palate. A bit thin and dry though.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 15, 2009
On tap 01.15.09 at James Squire Brewhouse on King Street Wharf in Sydney. Thanks to kempicus for recommending this place. Orange gold, white head. Aroma is malty, hoppy, fruity. Flavor is the same and wheaty. Quite light.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 23, 2008
Tasted a few times - from can, bottle and on draught. Found it full of fruity amarillo hops, with some nice malt on the palate. Only complaint that it was a bit minerally sometimes.

Clear golden with white fluffy head. Distinct amarillo hop flavours: butter, honey, citrus. Flavour is much the same. Palate is light. easy drinking, well balanced. Good natural fresh beer

Pyobon (1027) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 21, 2008
Can (on Qantas flight). Poured clear golden amber with some beige head. Decent aroma of hops (but from a can in a plastic cup on a plane so hard to tell). Thin palate with light carbonation. Nice balance of flowery hops and sweetish malt with some fruity hints. For a canned beer on a plane this was very welcome. Must try the bottle or draught.

MBison (548) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - FEB 23, 2008
Bottle (345ml). Poured a golden orange with a tight, creamy head which was mostly lasting. Aroma was of sweet malts, honey, orange citrus and light notes of caramel. Flavor was a light grassy hop bitterness with some honey, sweet malts and marmalade. Light to medium bodied with lively carbonation, slight creamy/dry mouthfeel and a decent finish.
