3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted 6/12: Bottle: Clear, copper colored, medium light head and lace. Apricot and malt aromas. Off dry, not sour and bitter. Malt driven. Certainly closer to English style than American. Solid but lacking personality and finish.
Malt and bitter

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Put simply, way too fizzy. Absolutely wrecks the beer. Not a very nice aroma either. Crisp though.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 10C. Cloudy pale amber with a white head. Aroma of lime leaf, weeds, biscuit. Light bodied, too fizzy. Sweet biscuit, moderate bitterness, really pretty dry at the end. Very Australian lime/ grass/ weeds. Old fashioned but good.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
It pours a burnt orange colour with LOTS of carbonation leading to a massive rocky head that lingers for ages. I mean this head is so big that I felt like a little kid eating canned cream, I got it everywhere and it was great! Once the head was out of the way I could finally smell the beer and I was not impressed with the restrained hop aroma but it is classified as an English Pale Ale and I am a hop head. The taste was much more my style, it starts with a burst of citrus hops that is followed by a biscuity malt profile and finishes with a piney bitterness that is refreshing and quenching. The beer has a high amount of carbonation with a medium to light body and is very refreshing in the Aussie summer.

Meh - can’t understand why this gets good press - just a bit boring - nice biscuit malt - light bodied kinda watery but thirst quenching like lager (it’s hot so I ain’t complaining) - just not enough hops for me - am not an English PA guy.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy amber, aroma is a bit toasty, w mild malts. Earthy/crackery character. Well-made and well-balanced beer if lacking in hop brightness.

On Tap at Clancys Fremantle
Moderate bitterness, slightly cloudy and not huge aromatics. A good example of a style of beer that does not need to knock your head off. A good entry into craft beer

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured a cloudy honey amber colour due to yeast sediment in the bottle. Had a few white bubbles for a head and laced very poorly. No visible carbonation. Aroma subtly of malt and yeast. Taste initially very sweet malt followed by a very slight bitterness - no real bitterness. Light body. Smooth dry very slightly bitter finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange gold with a thin white head. Malty aroma with mild citrus. Pretty mild flavour too - similar malty taste with a little citrus and light bitterness. Not anything amazing but very easy to drink and pretty pleasant

I was really looking forward to this beer, however, it was really boring. No real hop presence and a little watery. Would like to see if it is better on draught- Maybe a bad bottle?
