3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy golden colour with minimal head or lacing. Passionfruit, citrus and a touch of honey on the nose. Citrus and pine bitterness backed up with touch of honey and a faultless malt backbone. Despite the sell out this is still an Aussie standard for pale ales. Good quality beer that makes you want to keep opening the next one.

330ml bottle from Ales by Mail
BBE 25 Jul 2013 - Pours clear copper orange with a small white head. Aroma of floral hops, grass, hints of caramel. Taste is sweetish, malty and biscuity with notes of caramel, hints of aged hops. Finish is crisp, biscuity and slightly fruity with hints of caramel. Feels a bit unbalanced and not very fresh.
