500ml bottle -

The beer pours out a hazy golden yellow body, pillowy white airy head. Aroma comes out somehow with a wheat/citrusy aroma. Flavor has a fruity/melon note to it, light sweetness and barely any noticeable hop character. Decent while cold, but kinda blech when it warmed up a tad.

beer-yum (357) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 4, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 20, 2013 An enjoyable brew that manages to provide full flavour in a low(ish) alcohol package. While it doesn’t stand out from the crowd - it doesn’t have any issues either. Worth a try (especially on a hot summer day).

Davros (1806) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 9, 2009
Pale amber pour, small head. German (noble) hops instantly noticeable in the grassy and floral notes, nice and subtle overall though, not overwhelming. Some clean malt in the background. Very nice. More grassy hops upon tasting, not quite my thing usually, but it mixes in with a fair bit of sweet malt to make a nice mildly refreshing beer. Finishes with a prominent but easy-going bitterness. Moderately light body and carbonation, works well.

Dervock (404) - Emu plains, AUSTRALIA - SEP 11, 2009
Bottle - Pours a lightly hazy golden yellowwith a massive frothy white head. Aroma is a mixture of yeast, flowery hops and fruit. quite a lot of carbonation, floral and yeast flavours, some banana. short dry finish... I really like this great beer!

davidm (1926) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - SEP 5, 2009
Tap. Not so interesting. Aroma is light, predominantly hoppy, with fruits (maybe apple). Flavour is nicely bitter, with medium length. Palate is light to medium, watery, with a white lasting head. Yellow with a thin white head.

mickmac (484) - Ngunnawal, AUSTRALIA - AUG 25, 2009
Bottle. Pours with a average dense frothy head over a hazy gold amber body. A slight floral aroma and a taste finishes with a moderate bitterness. Nothing special.

Muggus69 (1108) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JUN 18, 2009
330ml bottle. Small white foam atop of a hazy pale gold body. Faint aroma, some lemony citrus hops and hint of bready malt. Quite lively carbonation, medium bodied, drying sort of texture and mouthfeel. Not overly flavoured, just nice subtle floral hops, a bit of citrus, some cereally malts, bready yeast with a hint of pear and apple esters. Finishes dry, reasonably bitter. Quite similiar to Coopers Pale Ale. Not as characterful, but quite a nice quaffing sort of Aussie beer.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 23, 2008
Bottle. Very pale and slightly hazy with a white bubbly head. A sweetish malt aroma. Flowery malt on the palate, quite a bit of carbonation, with a lemony hop twist in the finish.

Hazy yellow beer with diminishing head. Citrus hop aroma, highly carbonated, medium bodied, dry finish.
