caesar (5063) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2005
Clear orange color, short head. Aroma of sweet hops. Bit sweet and bitter taste, some orange and malt. Another fine beer from a fine Australian brewery.

I donít get why this is so low. Great copper colour with a thick white head. Nice aroma of resh hops. Taste is spicy and resiny with a nice malt presence in the background. A little over cabronated which detracts a bit from the flavour. hops sort of die off as it warms.

JoeMcPhee (8411) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 3, 2005
Pale golden beer with a hazy appearance. Thin white head. Aroma is of honey with a decent spicy hop character as well. A bit of juicy fruitiness in there as well. Very fresh smelling. Flavour is well-balanced, sweet caramel malt. Finishes hoppy and spicy. Easy to drink. A good summer seasonal.

DuffMan (6671) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 4, 2005
I liked this. Pours clear gold (duh), with a decent head. Really nice sweet fruit on the nose (like peaches in syrup), delicious palate of fruity hops that finishes fairly crisply. On the lighter side, but I think that is why I like this one-- good flavours and balance that allow for repeated drinkability.

bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 16, 2005
UPDATED: APR 21, 2006 Certainly a very quaffable ale. Poured an off-white frothy head, which didnít last all that long, on top of a gloriously golden amber fluid (surprise). Copped a whiff of fermenting stone fruits and a touch of toffee amongst the hoppy aroma. Quite a sweet short flavour, and relatively modest in the mouth. Some pepperyness on tasting. Nice and relatively easy drinking.

Trogdor (196) - Cairns, AUSTRALIA - MAY 12, 2005
Pale golden colouration, lightish head. Aroma is honeysh with strong passionfruit aroma. Flavour is a little hollow, with honey, grain, passionfruit peach and light bitterness, quite dry.

TimE (3154) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 11, 2005
Golden amber color, with apples and peaches in the nose. A very light body, lightly hopped brew with peaches and a slightly dry finish.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2005
Tap@James Squire Brewhouse. Some really nice aromatic hops in the nose, lychee and honey in the nose. Shame the body and flavour donít really go anywhere. Drinkable, for sure, but not very interesting. Some cardboard in the finish.

highlandlad (1416) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - FEB 28, 2005
One of the better ales in this breweryís generally disappointing range. Itís a "limited release" "thirst-slaking session beer" for the summer months. Poured an intense gold colour with a short, brief head. The nose is gloriously ripe with tropical fruit. Itís a medium-bodied easy-drinker, very fresh and summery. HInts of passionfruit, nuts and grapefruit. Some lingering bitterness from the Amarillo hops. A very rounded ale but short on real flavour and complexity. (Bottle)

toneman (1) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 25, 2005 does not count
Excellent version of English lighter style summer ale. More carbonation but intruiging fruity hop aroma & late palate. Well balanced easy drinking. Most important hangover free after a big session- I know Ive tried!
