Clear amber beer, decent pale cream colour head. Palate is light, semi dry and crispy. Thin malts with a milky sweetness. Light ripe orange hops. Dry finish. Tastes tired, passable.

330ml bottle poured into a short stemmed ale glass. Aroma - not much at all. Appearance - beer bottle brown. Pretty close to the actual bottle colour. Crystal clear and a white pillowy head. Foam holds briefly then disappeared to a low lying ring. Some minimal lacing. Medium bitterness and a hint of sweetness. Not really well balanced. Slightly above average carbonation and a little oily in texture (not in a bad way). Astringent and bitter finish and it is the astringency that lingers for quite a while. One most people will love or not.

UPDATED: NOV 26, 2015 Large but short lasting head, clear amber colour. Mild citrus and stone fruit aromas, mild bitterness with a surprisingly smooth creamy palate. Highly sessionable. The fruit aromas dissapear after a short time leaving a pleasant, simple ale.

Clear Amber with good white head retention .Love the aromas from this beer, although it gets lost in the mouth. Ripe orange citrus and floral aromas with a hint of hops gets the taste buds watering but once again fails to carry through . A reasonable commercial session beer and one I drink regularly .once again though . slight malt on the initial mouth that carries through to lingering hoppyness . A good beer at its price point but lacking something in the flavour .

345ml bottle (Cambridge Blue, Cambridge)
Very nice toffee-ish sweet caramel aroma, some hint of artichoke dip lemon butter. Malty toffee in the mouth - and tasty at that. Soft palate, carbonation just right. Aroma also packed with bread now I’ve tasted it. Drinkability is massive, but it is perhaps a bit too sweet, and maybe a bit starchy, to be comfortably sessionable for Anna. Finish is pleasantly bitter. On another night I might only give this 3.1, but right now, it’s really tickling my tastebuds.

deyholla (8884) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 25, 2015
Bottle thanks to Liz and Ben! Pours a clear gold with a near white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a bit of light fruit with a decent amount of grass with a light grain and bread backbone. Flavor has grass and a hint of earthy citrus with a bread backbone.

Can poured to cup in flight. Note 4.8% ABV. complementary on virgin canberra to hobart. Easy drinking pale ale with some hop aroma and mild bitterness. not bad. my summer ale tastes like this after months of aging.

345ml bottle into schooner glass. Floral hop nose, a little malt. Golden amber beer with solid lasting white head. Medium carbonation. Flat oily texture. Clean fruity hop finish. Refreshing. Good session beer.

Mass produced, no particularly strong flavour or aroma, lots of other beers that stand before it.
