3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Amber pour with white-with-yellowish-tinge head. aroma dominated with cascade, with some toasty malt and soapy alcohol in the background. Suprisingly rich flavour, balancing between hop flavour and malt sweetness with hops dominating. Apricot & peach in the beginning. I would suggest that this is a little over carbed for my liking. Bitter finish of soap and grapefruit. Not bad.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2015 345ml bottle into schooner glass @ Beverly Hills Hotel Sydney. Hoppy/caramel nose. Copper beer with solid creamy white head. Medium carbonation. Oily mouthfeel. Taste is pine needles, caramel, bitter lemon. Long finish leads to final touch of grapefruit. Great well-balanced beer, probably the best from this brewery.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very nice beer with lots of floral aromas. A beautiful copper colour with a nice creamy head and excellent carbonation. Palate wasn't as long lasting as I had expected but still quite good. A good example of a pale ale.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Copper pour with a thin white head. Big, citrusy, fruity aroma. Taste is citrus, caramel, a little passionfruit, nice bitterness. A very approachable beer and a good offering compared to a lot of the mainstream local brews

From a bottle. Pours copper with minimal head, big hop bitterness with a strong malt smoothness. Not bad

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Surprisingly complex beer from matilda bay, very much an american style pale ale with a lot of citrus shining through, some nutty coppery flavors and intense bitterness leaving me craving another bottle.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours amber color with a small fluffy head. Fruity, malty and slightly metallic aroma. Solid malty backbone with a hoppy, medium bitter finish. a bit too fizzy for my taste. Overall a solid APA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Esta cerveza tiene aroma frutales y cítricos picante por el uso del lúpulo Cascade, la boca se llena de maltas pálidas y un poderoso golpe a la amargura.
Alpha Pale Ale esta muy en linea con las cervezas de América del Noroeste.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
345 ml bottle. Pour light amber, perfect APA head, laced the glass like it should. Decent hoppiness but malt flavours too. Moderate bitter finish. A quite decent American pale ale - easily the best of the Matilda bay beers I’ve had.
