Golden amber colour, has some nice fruity hop aroma, seems like Amarillo to me. A little hazy to look at, sort of in the Coopers tradition. Pretty easy drinking Aussie pale ale style.

Bottle. Slightly hazy golden amber pour with a foamy white head that doesnít last long. Aroma is equal parts biscuity malt and citrusy hops. Flavour is very similar to aroma with notes of lemon, grapefruit and orange stand out as well as the biscuity malt and a hint of yeast, especially in the aftertaste. Light, almost watery mouthfeel with moderate carbonation and a lingering, mildly bitter finish. Pretty good if somewhat undistinguished pale; pleasant and sessionable.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - NOV 16, 2010
355mL. Pours a clear light orange (SRM 6) with really no head formation and no lace. Aroma is orange, tangerine, citrus, lemon, something a bit off. Taste is cloying sweet, bringing on an instant headache. Taste is watery, cardboard, newspaper, barely malty or hoppy. Suddy to clean palate. Rather subdued to almost no hop profile in the body. Watery to cardboardy palate.

Bottle - Murky golden, bready a bit of faint citrus and pears all round. Iíd much rather prefer the draft version I think.

looks great, pale with a solid white + head plus lacing. Aroma is barely there: bit of citrus, and bread. flavour is bread some subtle hops character and thatís about it. Nothing is out of balance with this beer, nor does it have any off flavours, itís just not much of anything.slightly greater than average carbonation, balance dry finish. ok, probably best enjoyed on a 35+ day.

Bottle. Pale amber, huge white head that collapses to an inch. Very high bead. Grainy aroma with some pears. Taste has grain and fruit sweetness and insufficient and indistinct bitterness. Rather dull. Better listed as a golden ale in my view.

Had at the Lord Nelson Brewary in the Rocks in Sydney. Pours a orange color with a think off white head, pleasant but not strong floral aroma. Lively mouthfeel with hints of grapefruit and a crisp, bitter finish. Over all a very pleasant easy drinking beer, easy to have a few of.

Cloudy amber with a nice head. Spicey dough aroma. Sweet malt & smooth mouthfeel. Bit on the thin side.

Davros (2782) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 14, 2010
Pours dark amber with a white suddy head. Nose shows next to no hops, just some faint grassy notes. Some sweet caramel is noticeable, but it seems stale. Some sulfur and vegetal characters put the final nail in the coffin. More of that dirty malt shows up as a flavour but, in a redeeming note, the caramel is more noticeable. Finishes with a very mild, plain bitterness. Low carbonation, body is too heavy in my opinion.
