Bottle pour in pub style shaker, literally around the corner from brewery. Not sure why the bottle stamp is 280212, its nearly August?! Hazy orange color with creme colored head, that seems lasting and leaves thin lacing. This is a true session ale, with low hop profile, smooth palate, and no aftertaste. At 4.9 abv, you can enjoy quite a few of these in an evening, or instead, use it to warm-up to something with more hop.

beer-yum (1335) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 8, 2016
Restrained grassy aroma in a golden amber pour. Nicely balanced brew with mild bitterness and restrained fruity body. One of the better Australian pale ales I’ve had on this trip - but that’s not saying much to be honest.

DavidAust (195) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 10, 2016
Bottle into a shaker glass. Amber colour, a little darker than expected. Minimal aroma. Almost no head and minimal lacing. Quite a big hop presence (for a pale ale) with a tropical / piney flavour being the dominant aftertaste. Mildly bitter overall. Not unpleasant, but not on the must have list either. Can imagine other people finding this very much to their liking - I just prefer a malty beer.

mcberko (14411) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 5, 2016
On tap at Lord Nelson, pours a cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out English hops and toasted crackery malt. Flavour is along the same mellow lines, with subdued English hops and toasted crackery malt. Subdued but well-balanced. Decent.

eduardovl (1356) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 11, 2016
330ml bottle served in a pint glass. Pours a cloudy pale yellow color forming a modest white head with medium persistence and some soapy lacings left in the glass. Nose is fruity and refreshing. Notes of ananas, grass and resin. Taste follows the nose. Slightly sweet upfront. Notes of tropical fruits, sweet pale malts, grass and resin. Hints of zest. Medium bitterness. Light body. Average carbonation. Fruity and grassy aftertaste. Good drinkability. Not bad.

Very good beer. Strong taste and personality. It does not look like it but it has a bitter taste and palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Morboso (145) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 31, 2015
Pleasantly surprised. Nice fragrant aroma, smooth well balanced malt and honey, need more than one for a more detailed review but pretty good albeit after drinking a couple of average lagers

Best pale ale in oz. complex and powerful without any bitterness. Not overpowered by hops either. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
