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.

2.9 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.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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
