Bottle. Almost clear gold with a puffy white head, Shy aroma of peach bubblegum , wheat crackers, tropical fruit lollies. Sweet with boiled lollies, very light spices, some glue. Just needed _something_ at the end.

Oakes (14042) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 6, 2016
Draught at the brewpub. For some reason I thought they had handpumps here - did that change? Golden and a bit hazy. Has a mellow hop character with a light bitterness, a light malt with a bit of toastiness.

Pyobon (1220) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 2, 2016
(Bottle - says 4.4% ABV and 18 IBU). Slightly hazy golden yellow with good small white head. Subtle pleasant aroma with notes of bread, grass, pepper. Surprising palate - soft and creamy. Taste is similar to aroma - bread, some peppery spice but with some fruity, mainly citrus notes, in the background. The peppery spice remains into a reasonably bitter finish. Very drinkable.

Tap. Pale milky yellow, white head. Mealy, papery base, light catty, restrained bitterness. Light bodied, dry mellow. Not super exiting.

Found notes from my 2009 trip to Australia. This one was on tap at the Lord Nelson pub in Sydney. Great place. Quayle was wheat, grassy. A little pasty, but good.

ALLOVATE (2769) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 31, 2012
Bit weary of this bottle I picked up. Best after December of last year, hmmm.
So, into a snifter it went, just on cool, and I don’t think it could have been in finer form. Looks good. Towering, sticky snow-white crown atop very cloudy, honey gold body with well-conditioned, fine carbonation. Grassy and sweet, candied fruit aroma (strawberry, pear, pineapple) with a touch of dusty, sun-drenched grains that leans more towards pale ale malt than wheat. Creamy in mouthfeel and filling for a beer of modest strength. Good body with a dry, absorbing malt finish that is dusty like the nose. Sweet, fruit Starburst candy start meets a wall of leafy hops that offer a pleasant level of bitterness to the swallow. The fruit begins to linger long between sips, bitter under-ripe melon comes to mind; juicy and dominating by the end of the glass. This is quite a pleasant ale. Be mistaken, but I’d probably place this in the Golden ale sector as it has the traits of one. Refreshing stuff! (33cL, BA 08/12/11, Liquor Barons, Greenwood)

Had on tap at the brewery. Refreshing easy drinking ale with subtle flavours and aromas.

floydian1 (1285) - FNQ, Australia, - MAY 9, 2012
330ml green bottle (as "Quale Summer Ale" with ABV of 4.4%). Pours clear straw yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of sweet golden malts with a faint trace of grassy hops. Palate is watery and uncomplicated with flavours similar to the nose. Abrupt finish. Light body. A lawn mower beer.

Maris (1268) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - MAR 10, 2012
From a 330ml bottle on 11/3/2012 (the bottle describes it as Quayle Summer Ale’ and is 4.4% ABV). Pours a cloudy light golden with a thickish lasting head. Has a slight aroma of bready malt and citrus fruit. Flavour wise, it’s relatively subtle - a little honey up front, with a slightly sour, lingering lemon bitterness at the back. Not particularly exciting or noteworthy, but easy enough to drink and would work quite well in the warmer months.
