3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From 330 ml bottle. Pours a clear orange-amber with a small but lasting white head and generous carbonation. Aroma is peach, lemon, flowers, spice and passionfruit with a hint of malt sweetness coming through. The taste starts off with peach and apple, before a zesty grapefruit bitterness kicks in. Medium bodied. Mostly clean finish but leaves a pleasant citrus aftertaste. Good Aussie pale that dances on the border of being an IPA.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Darker in colour than most pale ales. Off white head. More hoppy than most APA’s. Citrus flavours are present, particularly grapefruit and lemon. Quite standard body with a medium carbonation. A solid pale ale. But not the greatest.

Bottle. Golden with a slight white head. Aroma of grapefruit and tropical fruits, with a touch of malt sweetness. Flavour had a lot more fruit, plenty of biscuity malts and culminated in a dryish finish. Good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear light golden yellow with one finger of white head that fades quickly. Aroma is passionfruit, mango and some biscuit. Lovely and juicy. Flavour is slighty piney, some grapefruit bitterness, a bit of a pineapple/fruit punch flavour and some slight roast on the finish. Bitterness is moderate but not over the top, and body is medium. A pretty tasty beer, but nothing outstanding.

From a 330ml bottle on 26/11/2012. Pours an almost clear light golden with a biggish head. Has a quite pleasant floral, citrus fruit aroma. The flavour features a dash of sweet and tart citrus, followed by a relatively pronounced bitterness. A pretty good APA, And I like the bottles they use.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A--- an orange carmel color, a good 2 finger white head that kept its retention through the drink. Nice sticky lacing on the glass.
S-- Some carmel but a good amount of grapefruit, lemon, and orange citrus and floral and pine in it as well. Very nice nose on this beer. Smells like an APA but a little more bready
T-- Balanced between carmel malt, and citrus. Had a biscuit quality to this as well, the yeast and malt.
M-- Med carbonation and was light in the mouth and did finish dry. Had a good balance between the hops and the malt. Had a good mix of sweet and citrus.
D-- Very drinkable and got more bitter as it warmed up. I Liked the Biscuit side of this beer. Was quite nice. negative is the price. Generally expect to pay about $20 for a 4 pack and about $8-9 in a restaurant. it is a good beer and very could drink a few before noticing anything. A lower ABV at under 5%. Other negative is that their beers are just plain rare to find in restaurants and in bottleshops. Why the lower score on the drinkability.
