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.

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.

Bottle. A fizzy, yellow ale. Quite rough around the edges. A bit tangy and medium bodied. Tasted like a macro.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at Lord Nelson, Sydney. Pours amber with a medium white head. This beer lifted the spirits slightly as I could actually detect some hop presence here. Sweet, malty aroma and flavour with a juicy fruitiness as well. Smooth mouthfeel and enough bitterness to encourage another pint perhaps?

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Cloudy tea-amber colour, spritzy carbonation creates a lively head. Toffee, pears, spices, sweet but dry finish. A little too much carbonation.
