3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden orange with a loose fluffy head. Dusty floral aroma with a touch of spice. A slight bitterness that serves well both as a quencher and to encourage further consumption. Satisfying without being spectacular, it has a medium body but a little too much carbonation. A good summer beer for a hot summers day. (330mL bottle)

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Found a 330ml bottle best after 16/10/06. Serving it chilled. Quite a prominant and pleasant floral hop aroma. Slightly hazy golden body with a foamy white head and lace. Slightly creamy mouthfeel. Sweet malts at the beginning of the body, fruity citrus hop flavours come through, with a corny sort of dry finish. Quite nice, seems more of a pale ale to me.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a hazy gold with an ivory head. This is a bit sweet. Is there corn in this? Seems higher alcohol than as stated. Harsh palate and fairly nondescript.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tough to pick the style on this one. Lots of citrus happening on nose and palate with plenty of zing. Well made, this beer would be an excellent hot weather session style given the sharp refreshing hoppy cut. Malts gradually fill the palate out and drive a decent finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the brewpub. Cloudy pale amber. Spicy hop aroma. Medium sweet with clean, rounded mouthfeel. The finish is somewhat soapy, but holds a nice bitterness. A pleasant uncomplicated beer.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
20 Aug 2005 (Moody’s ACT) - Some light sweet aroma, this beer screams for more aroma. Clear red-brown colour with suds lacing and ordinary head. Light sweet malt with some vegetable flavours. Sweet vegetable finish. Overall - a bit too much nothing for me.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can’t say it looks, smells or tastes like a pilsener (in a blind tasting I reckon I would guess at an American Pale Ale) but in its latest incarnation it’s a bloody good beer. Poured a deep orangey-gold with a skinny 0.5cm head. It has that APA fruit salad aroma, with strong orange marmalade notes, passionfruit and grapefruit. Tart grapefruit on the tongue with some sweet caramel notes and a fine lingering spicy-bitter finish. (According to the brewpub website, Saaz hops.) Nice sweet-bitter malt-hop balance in this one, and none of the carbonation problems with the bottled Quayle Ale. This is very good in the bottle, even at a wallet-threatening $9.95 a pop. (630ml bottle, Best Cellars, East Sydney)

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep golden coloured beer, with some suspended yeast. Aroma is fairly bready and spicy. Strange that they call this a pilsener as it really tastes like Goldings in here. A touch of caramel malt. Flavour is bready, a little yeasty, with a heavy spicy hop flavour. Well-balanced.
