Honey amber colour with a frothy white head. Quite highly carbonated first up. Sweet, floral aroma. Slightly tangy, sweet flavour with a bitter after taste on the back of the throat. Quite refreshing.

Floral smell and taste. A little too fizzy though and provides for a great summer ale.

Quite malty. Caramel and toffy. Nice hop taste but I found it to be more of an english rather than american pale ale. It looked great. Head has nice and big backed with a golden body. An enjoyable beer.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours with an large foamy white head over a slightly golden-amber body. Sweetish, sherbert/bi-carbonate of soda, chemically character. I wouldn’t call this an american pale ale. Not good.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle. Strong, spicy hops to begin, with a nicely carbonated mouthfeel, and a crisp finish. Goes down fairly easily, and is not bad as an easy drinker, but to me just doesn’t live up to the promise of such a well-known brewpub, and isn’t quite as rewarding as other local golden ales, like James Squire or Coopers Sparkling. Still, definitely worth it.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - Nice amber colour with medium head. Nice floral aromas. A quiet enjoyable beer to have - medium body, slight tang, nice hops flavours. Great for a lazy Saturday arvo. Think the label on the bottle is a bit much, makes the beer look cheap - needs to be simplified to reflect the beer.

Bottle 330ml. Great APA. Aromas of grass, spice, and dough. Taste has a sweet start, with bitterness slowly taking over. Palate is velvety, medium bodied. Dark yellow, with a frothy white head.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330mL bottle. Pours a clear gold with a small persistent off-white head and some nice lacing. Slightly sweet aroma of malt and floral hops. Flavour is clean, reasonably sweet and slightly hoppy. Average carbonation, light-medium bodied with a very mild bitter finish. Decent enough beer, but it’s a stretch to call it an APA considering it tastes just like James Squire Golden Ale minus the metallic aftertaste, and for the price there are many quite superior alternatives.
