4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2004 I reckon this is the best australian beer i have tasted. Coopers vintage comes real close, but i think this takes the cherry. Nice citrus flavours with spice edge. Aroma of orange and other nice things. I am going to the brewery in a couple of days and can’t what. Must try. Just writing about it makes me want it sooo bad. I had a couple last night and i can still taste it

0,33 flaske på Cardinaltreff jan-15: helrig citronaroma og massevis av frisk mandarinsmak. Fin munnfølelse, men kort ettersmak. Mild bitterhet. Svært lett å helle innenfor snippen.

Bottle from Bierkieller, Liverpool. Aroma has some hops and malts but could be bigger. Pours dark orange with a small white head. Taste is nice and fresh with a hint of hops and some tropical fruits. Palate is fittingly thin and drinkable. Overall a nice fresh pale ale, though no taste sensation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Cambridge Wine Merchants, Mill Road. Dark amber, hazy. Scent of apricot/peach, grass and pine resin. The taste is straightforward and a fairly uniform bittersweet with a surprising malty hit. Fuller body than most pale ales of this ABV. Ok. Maybe I was expecting too much, but I felt that while this was an excellent beer in many ways, it didn’t have enough balance for me to rate it any higher.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pint bottle into pint glass. Sharp citric nose. Hazy amber colour, solid creamy head, occasional tiny bubbles. Starts bitter, stays bitter. Beautiful finish, really nice. Not as eccentric as some pale ales & all the better for it. Excellent.
