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.

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.

davidm (1996) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - FEB 27, 2010
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.

Mjollnir (392) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JAN 22, 2010
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.

jonno (2345) - JAPAN - OCT 21, 2009
Bottle. A fizzy, yellow ale. Quite rough around the edges. A bit tangy and medium bodied. Tasted like a macro.

nate2g (1548) - 上海 / Boomtown!, AUSTRALIA - JUN 7, 2009
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?

Pyobon (1180) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 9, 2009
Bottle. Hazy amber with good off-white head. Aroma of floral hops with maybe a hint of citrus. Medium body, light carbonation. Malty with a nice floral hoppy reasonably bitter finish. A decent beer.

mkel07 (4541) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 4, 2009
330ml bottle. Golden to orange in colour with a thin white head. Cloudy and hazy with yeast particles left in the bottle. Fruit aroma with an undertone of floral hops. Good mouthfeel, fizzy and zings in the mouth. Mildy bitter with a dry finish.

DuffMan (8321) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 23, 2009
Bottle. Cloudy tea-amber colour, spritzy carbonation creates a lively head. Toffee, pears, spices, sweet but dry finish. A little too much carbonation.
