Maris (999) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - DEC 29, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2010 From a 345ml bottle on 30/12/2009. Has a floral aroma, and a pleasant and quite distinctive sweetish, citrus fruit flavour, with some restrained bitterness. One of the best James Squire standards, this is a nice sessional brew. Pleasing to see it increasingly available on tap around the traps.

bluebetty (1019) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 27, 2009
Bottle. From Tommy for Christmas. Pours a deep amber rather than golden colour. Small rocky head that feel away pretty quikcly. Some lacing. Sweet malt aromas with a little honey and some floarl hop notes. Flavours are biscuty malt with some home. A little hop initially with more hops and some bitterness near the end. Not too bad.

Oakes (12723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 25, 2009
Golden. The aroma is woody, hoppy with a light malt toastiness. Light body and character with a mild, woody American hop accent, light fruitiness and chewy, slightly toasty malts.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - DEC 18, 2009
Bottle acquired in Phnom Penh. Dark golden amber, small head. Earthy hop aroma is also spicy. Quaffable and thirst-quenching. Herbal tea qualities. Tea leaves. Not special but good stuff.

BarossaLuke (540) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 5, 2009
Clear light amber colour. Passionfruit and fruit hop character. Fresh, clean flavour with good malt hop balance. I honestly don’t know what most of those below are describing, this is a good, hop driven summer ale that is way better than most Aussie beers.

destroye7 (312) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 2, 2009

mickmac (484) - Ngunnawal, AUSTRALIA - OCT 4, 2009
Bottle. Pours with an average white dense frothy head over a clear amber-orange body. Pleasant hop aromas of pine-citrus -tastes of same with a moderate bitter finish. Nice.

davidm (1936) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - SEP 19, 2009
Bottle 345ml. Good aroma, but light-bodied and too sweet for me. Aroma has grass, yeast, and also some caramel. The flavour is light and sweet, with just a touch of bitterness. Amber colour, with a thin white head that disappears. Palate is thin.

jonno (2345) - JAPAN - SEP 5, 2009
Very fruity, but otherwise a bit of a miss. Another easy drinking Australian beer that does nothing to stimulate the senses.

Dervock (501) - Emu plains, AUSTRALIA - AUG 22, 2009
Bottle - pous a golden amber with a loose white head that quickly disappears. Faint floral aroma.Light floral and malt flavours with a hoppy bitter finish.
