3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Average fizzy white head that mostly diminished. Spar lacing. Clear sparkling body with an amber color. Aroma of elderflower, grapefruit, pine, citrus, caramel, fruit. Medium bodied with a dry texture and an average carbonation. Light to moderated bitter and sweet flavor in a balanced combination. Average lasting light bitter and dry finish. Very nice Pale Ale.

Had it on tap so fresh there was hops floating in the beer. I’m a bit over Aussie mircos doing APAs but really enjoyed this one.

Bottle -- Pours a light amber with a smallish frothy white head with OK retention and lacing. Aroma screams out APA but with a touch of honeydew melon. Medium palate with flavours of lemon and hops with a bitter finish. It doesn’t leave me as sattisfied as the Little Creatures APA,but a very nice beer.

Light copper colour and nice citrus aroma. Is a very tasty APA with a very good balance. Is hoppy and has a great bitter finish which is not over the top. Had it on tap during a visit to Perth and have to say it was a favorite...excellent session beer.

19 November 2005, Bottled Best Before Jan 06:
Appears clear golden-brown with a small head and a little lacing. Medium mostly hoppy aroma and the typical grapefruit smell of some pale ales, some other fruity aromas too. Taste is obviously hoppy and fruity with a light malt flavour, but has a more honeyish, nectary, flowery, and quite bitter finish. Overall very easy to drink and I’m glad it’s bottled.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Strong pine, pineapple, grapefruit and butter aroma. Thick, bitter, malty, buttery palate makes this a bit more of a sipper than a sessioner. Good to see a mainstream brewer attempt to make a decent beer, but they haven’t quite cracked it with this one IMO.

Bottle, at London gathering, November 2005. Thanks to kook for bringing this one. A pretty fair rendition of an APA. Orangey copper colour. Reasonable ration of resinous hops in aroma and flavour. Light, refreshing and maybe a bit soft. Could do with a touch more bitterness. Not quite up to the standard of Little Creatures but a definite move in the right direction.
