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

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. A fizzy, yellow ale. Quite rough around the edges. A bit tangy and medium bodied. Tasted like a macro.
