Mjollnir (398) - 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 (2520) - 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) - 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 (1314) - 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 (5226) - 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 (9593) - 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.

floydian1 (1362) - FNQ, Australia, - APR 11, 2009
330ml bottle into lager glass. A murky orange ale with a moderate lasting white head. Honey malt driven aromas with hints of oranges and vanilla. Taste is similarly malt driven with citrus floral hops coming through on the mid-palate but spoilt by a bitter mildly soapy finish. Little Creatures Pale Ale remains the benchmark Down Under IMHO.

Creamy head. Soft bitterness intially on palate. Slight hop on nose. Fruity nose. Very drinkable.

MBison (548) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - JAN 9, 2008
Draught at the brewhouse. Arrived an amber colour with orangey yellow highlights and a average size white head which was mostly diminishing. Aroma was of some what hoppy with, orange citrus, passionfruit anf some marmalade. Taste was also of orange citrus with a grassy hop bitterness, passionfruit, grape fruit and a touch of resin. Medium bodied, lively carbonation, dry texture, resiny mouthfeel and a average finish. Better than I expected.

enak (27) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 24, 2007
Poured with a large head which subsided in time. Mild fruit flavour with scents of lemon and reasonable malt presence. The aroma was a bit off, slightly unappetizing. Overall I was mildly disapointed with this brew
