3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A nice APA. Lots of good floaters and an orange hue. Cirus notes. A good example of the style.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330ml bottle. Pours a clear golden amber, with a smallish white head, which lasts fairly well, leaving some lace. A strong, sweet aroma of honeydew melon is the dominant note on the nose, but it mingles with strong pine resin hops, a touch of pineapple and a tiny hint of caramel malt to create an extremely appealing aroma. Strong lime and tropical fruit hop flavours abound initially, with a trace of sweet mango leading through into a body which blends prickling pine hops with some smoother malt characteristics. A smooth, fruity finish has some caramel, more tropical fruit and some biting, peppery hops. Another really quality beer from Murray’s: a strong, hoppy APA with so much more going for it than the horde of various pale ales out there.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tropical aroma in an amber pour. Light, crisp, clean body with a restrained bitter finish. But nothing special.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a light golden straw with some hazing. Large billowy white head falls away relatively quickly. Flavours are quite subdued. Some citrus, biscuity malt a little yeast and very faint chlorine. Not to the point of being offensive but definately there. Flavours are pretty straight foward and not overly memorable to be honest. Some grain and the lightest resiny hop finish. OK

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very pleasant, easy to drink. Grassy bitter, it could be a bit fruitier with the NZ hops, but still one of the best Aussie pale ales.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber with thin but dense off white head. Fruity, hoppy, (peachy?) aroma. Citrus and peppery hit at the start, a bit of caramel, not overly bitter but a good finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Initially I liked this beer, but as it went on it was harder and harder work and as commented by others it is more than a bit over carbonated which is a shame. Pout is muddy orange with a foamy persistent white head. Aroma is a bit of spice and citrus which follows through to the palate once you chew through the bubbles. Finish is quite dry and long. Nice, but not Murray’s greatest (which is still better than most)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle into glass. Balanced nose of hops and malt. A little bit of lemon sherbet, nice. Dark amber beer with solid white head. Mouthfeel is light, bitter and flat. Finish is a touch of malt then tangy bitterness which lasts. Very well balanced. Good for a few.
