jmgreenuk (4022) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 15, 2013
Bottle at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a crystal clear light amber with a thin white head. The aroma is fresh and malty leading to a clean crisp medium bitter malty hoppy flavour. The bitterness lingers for a while in the aftertaste for a refreshing beer, but its nothing spectacular and not too dissimilar to Carling Black Label!

KeefOz (837) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - OCT 15, 2012
Poured a cloudy golden colour with a two-finger white foamy head that diminished quickly and gave poor lacing. Aroma of citrus and a trace of passionfruit - very refreshing. Taste similar to aroma but not as pronounced - well balanced. Medium body. Balanced clean sweet malt plus slightly bitter finish. Quite nice!

Muggus69 (1132) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JUN 6, 2012
Bottle, Albion Hotel Newcastle Golden body, some clarity, holds a decent sized head. Nice aroma of citrusy/grass hops, not overdone, bit of cereal maltiness in the background. Medium-light bodied, good carbonation, quite dry overall. Decent malt body, toasted cereals and light caramels, all in good balance with those slightly fruity, citrusy hops. Moderate bitterness on a relatively clean drying finish. Nice sort of sessionable APA. Well made, not too over the top, quite dry, goes down nicely.

poured a bit hazy, nothing that stood out in aroma or taste, but pleasant and easy drinking.

bluebetty (1019) - AUSTRALIA - APR 14, 2012
Bottle. Pours a slightly murky golden orange with dense creamy coloured head. Subtle citrus aromas and a little biscuity malt. Not too bad. Flavours are a little more ho hum. Light sweetness balanced by a little resiny hp bitterness. Easy drinking and nott too bad.

Maris (955) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - DEC 17, 2011
From a 330ml bottle on 17/12/2011. Pours a murky golden with a biggish head. Has a mild fruity aroma with some yeastiness. The flavour is dominated a quite a distinct sweet sour citrus fruitness, and an odd slightly sour bitter finish. Not quite sure what to make of this one. Itís quite interesting and different, but it doesnít quite come together.
