2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle in London. Uninspiring. Poured a clear amber which looked quite thin. Taste thin, bitter without much body to support it. Only faint aroma of slight grassy floral hops. Disappointed, was expecting more based on rating.

Orange-golden color with white head. Aroma is cat piss, caramel malts. Taste is also cat piss and caramel malts, but also some "cork" feeling. Fine-bubbled carbonation. Interesting, but I don’t know how much of this corkiness is wanted.

On tap at Buckley’s, Circular Quay, Sydney on 11th September 2015. Hazy amber with off-white part-lacing foam. Light, fresh citrus fruity hoppiness in aroma. Strong hoppiness in-mouth; grassy with light grapefruit citrus. A short citric finish. Medium-bodied with a zingy mouthfeel.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle at The White Horse, Richmond. Paid £5, which must be the most anyone has ever had to pay for a bottle of this beer. 330ml, no date or ABV details. Hazy orange, still, small foamy white head. Aroma is softly floral, simple. Body is light, tingly carbonation, slightly foamy. Off-putting thin body. Taste is parma violet, sweet toffee and butterscotch, nips of tangerines. The flavour is OK. Overall, it’s just alright.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
One of the first of this style of beer I drank maybe about 10 years ago along with SNPA. Happy to find bottles of this in the Coronation Hall, Surbiton (JDW). Pours golden with a white head. Aroma of malt, pine and citrus. Bitter sweet finish. Maybe one of those that has been overtaken but still a solid beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Beautiful golden colour, slightly hazy, sediments in the bottom of the bottle excluded from the pour. Two-finger white head. Aroma suggests a citrusy flavour, malt note somewhere in the background. Well carbonated, citrus and grapefruit up front. Bitter and dry mouthfeel that lasts frorever. A tasty, refreshing, well hopped pale ale without much malt notes to it. This was my first date with an Australian beer,
