donfardz64 (538) - Wellington, New Zealand, - DEC 3, 2010
Pale, thin white head. Little hop aroma, but what is there is nice. Flavour lacks any kind of malt backbone, slightly oxidized. This is one of those ’meh’ beers which would probably be ’oh yeh’ if it was fresh.

sm89walt (1741) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 4, 2014
Keg - The Newport Arms, Newport. Poured a clear, bright amber with a thick, creamy, lasting and uniformly lacing white head. Solid biscuity, bready malt backbone with earthy, leafy tones and a gentle grassy, pithy hop bitterness. Light to medium body, soft to medium carbonation with a crisp, somewhat firm mouthfeel and fine length,if moderate intensity, finish.

kustie (94) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 27, 2014
Straightforward pale ale with no specialties. Aroma quite minimal. Taste is refreshing and thin.

maus (30) - Tartu, ESTONIA - JUN 6, 2014
Poured from a bottle. Nice head, golden clear colour. Nice aroma, faint citrus and pleasant new world hoppyness. Taste is good, crisp. Decent pale ale, nice on a summer day.

Lagerboy (1172) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 4, 2014
345 ml bottle brought back from ’Stralia by my Fast and Aggressive chum. Clear light copper, off-white lasting foam. Aroma is mostly caramel, herbs, grass. Light grainy caramel malt taste, somewhat aqueous, faint herbal earthy hop. Average carbonation, lighter bodied, low hopped. Clean, sessional and unremarkable. Apparently it’s better straight from the bottle! Cheers Mate! MLF (More Lagerboy Friendly)

AdiBeer (875) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2014
Aroma: citrus fruits, caramel malts. Appearance: clear amber, medium frothy white head. Taste: light sweet. Palate: light bitters coming up, watery. Overall: boring APA, neither aroma nor taste convince, but given this venue has only other bland stuff like Peroni, it becomes the beer of choice. Bottle at Corney & Barrow, Canary Wharf.

kalervo (668) - FINLAND - APR 15, 2014
Quite watery and boring American (or Australian?) pale ale, mildly hopped, not quite interesting at all.

rosenbergh (6491) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 7, 2014
345 ml bottle. BB 17/May/14. Aussie Bar, Tampere, Finland.
Clear deep golden colour with a small white head. Sweet malt, sweet hops, candies, sweetness and some airy notes in the aroma. The flavour is sweet malt, sweet hops, floral and candy hops and more sweetness. Drinkable but boring pale ale.

olio (5855) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 4, 2014
Tap @ Aussie Bar, Tampere.
Pours clear golden color, small head. Mild fruits on the nose, faint fruits also. Fruity flavor, some grains and malts. The cardboard notes ruin this completely.

lusikka (5948) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 26, 2014
330 ml bottle @ Aussie Bar, Tampere. Pours a dark golden colour with a white head. Aroma of biscuit and some floral hoppy notes. Flavour of biscuit, mild floral bitterness, some sweetness and grains. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. Good drinkability. Overall a mild APA, which could use a lot more flavour.
