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 (2460) - 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.

Jade (423) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 22, 2010
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.

Mattburns (109) - USA - JUN 13, 2010
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.

mickmac (484) - Ngunnawal, AUSTRALIA - MAY 14, 2010
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.

ComradeK (1076) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - MAY 13, 2010
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.
