2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Too fizzy, with a lack of flavour I was expecting from this style of beer. I am not an expert in rating qualities of beer, but I can’t workout what temperature this should be served at. The bottle was cold, but the beer was really gassy and metallic. Maybe it should be served warmer to help improve what little flavour it had. I think I was ripped off at $21 for a six pack. If I had known that Fosters had a hand in it I would have surely passed.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
4.7% ABV. Australian Pale Ale.
Nose is full of sweet cotton candy notes.
Nicely brewed, safe, middle of the road pale ale providing nice carbonation, a light watery mouthfeel, some good pale malt flavor with an overall hop balanced ride.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A golden ale with a thick frothy lacing off white head. In aroma, grassy malt with light grassy hops, herbaceous character, so-so. In mouth, a sweet fruity malt with light grassy hops, light mineral notes, watery and boring. Bottle from Au Bon Marché.

Can on Virgin Australia. A bit on the bland side, amber colored body with spare airy head. Some metallic taste, not very bitter.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Probably one of my favourite more "mainstream beers in Australia. Slightly floral on the nose with citrusy undertones. The perfect beer on a hot Aussie day!

From bottle in shaker. Faint hops in both aroma and taste left me wanting a bit more in each. Easy drinking APA trying to be "crafty" in the mainstream.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap. Pours amber with a medium pillowy head. Neutral nose. Some hops, some malts, but really only hinted at. Clearly a pale ale nonetheless.

Had this years ago, and dont remember it being this bad. No depth of character and unpleasant aftertaste.

Good to have a pint or two, loses flavour and bite after too many. Quite nice and readily available.
