From a bottle. Pours a clear, very faint golden colour, a little zesty, refreshing, not too bad at all. Not a big flavoured beer but quite drinkable.

Bottle - pours pale yellow with a dense white head. Aroma is quite earthy with some cardboard and nuts. Taste is slightly nutty with only the very very faintest of hints of hops. Palate is a bit thin.

mattyhennessy (311) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - AUG 4, 2013
Pours a pale light brown with a foamy white head. Taste is a little metallic. Strong malt flavour with little other flavours. Only a mild citrus flavour is present. A standard pale ale

ALLOVATE (2405) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 15, 2013
Odd appearance; seems to be suffering from a bad case if chill haze. The body a sandy yellow with moderate to light carbonation and an ill-fitting, limp and sudsy white head. Uninspiring nose has hints of straw, stewed rhubarb, weeds and rocket leaves. Watery and dull on the palate; very light bodied with little aftertaste. Sad and sorry hop showing; I think they forgot their weights and measures to be honest. Mild bitterness, light citric tang and distant piney notes. Soapy, whishy-washy mid-palate. Just plain ugh! (33cL, BBE 08/13, Dan Murphy’s Currambine)

Bottle. Standard pale ale. Nose has mild citrus aromas and hints of caramel sweetness. Taste is much the same. Solid without being amazing ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This isnt’ the hoppiest beer ever made. It is a little bit fizzy with a little bit of bitterness. Widely available in bottles.

DylansDad (305) - NEW ZEALAND - MAR 28, 2013
330ml bottle cold. Not a bad beer, a definite step up from the usual macro-wank. Just like the label says, a bit of bitterness, citrus, pine, but quite mild and not outstanding in any way. Score is under 3 because after a few mouthfuls it started finishing way too sweet for me, very honey-ish. Could be a good gateway beer.
