Light gold, quite cloudy. Fruity nose, I get the passionfruit too. Friendly structure in the mouth - good fizz levels, not much malt or sweetness, medium bitterness. A vey clean tasting style that is very refreshing but lacks a little character. Good for what it is.

Aarleks (409) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 19, 2004
Bottle: Poured an orange amber with an off-white diminishing head. Aroma of floral spiced apricots and passion fruit. Light crystal malt flavours backed up by some subtle tropical fruits. A well balanced, low corbonation and light bitterness. Nice session beer.

Light grains and spiced lemons and weak malts. Weak body, fizzy, some apple spice in the flavor. Marginal beer. A gift from an Aussie friend who was in town.

A nice drinkable pale ale, like the description says, it is much better when it is ice cold. The balance is very nice and consistent from sip to sip. Not overly hoppy, but has a pleasant dry hopped taste, with an malty English pale ale aftertaste. Enjoyable.

I liked this beers overall appearance and taste. It had it all. It did however have a slightly medicinal after taste which could take some getting used to. great effort for my humble opinion.

Medium size shortish lasting pale yellow orange head over a medium hazy honey orange coloured brew. Didn't get the overcarbonation reported by others. When cold aroma is a faint herbal hops becoming sweeter fruitier when warmed. Medium smooth body. Chunky bready gainy malt with light hoppy start, middle finish is grainier tending to corn (not my favourite). Aftertaste goes back to herbal hops and stalish malt and light bitter.

The Goat beer nobody really drinks has always been my favourite. This bottle was a lot darker than I recall it being, but not to worry. Very clear - yeast clings to the bottle. Head retention average. Really nice fruity English aroma. Solid caramel, bready malt flavour and just enough bitterness to balance nicely. Slightly overcarbonated. A pretty simple beer but it works... insert Corn Flakes slogan here.

Pours clear dark golden with a crap white head. Lasted maybe 10 seconds. No visible carbonation either, suspect maybe a badly capped bottle? Lovely hoppy floral nose, with a bit of biscuity malt behind it. Thin-medium mouthfeel. Nice balanced sweet malt flavour with a noble hop aftertaste. Alright, nothing amazing though.

Nice and refreshing perfect thing for warm days. Not suprised this uses Hallertau hops as the flavours really come through whithout being overly herbatious.

Not as good as the Hightail ale but not bad either. Could drink this beer on a hot sunny day or on a winter's night.
