3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Hazy gold with a large white head. Gentle hay, citrus (orange, grapefruit) and tropical fruit aroma. Light bodied, high carbonation (that’s inconsistent in the 6 pack). Clean hay, mandarin, grapefruit. Dry and pretty bitter finish. Refreshing summery beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Archive Beer Boutique July 2013. Nice easy drinking golden ale with no pretentiousness, just a good old fashioned flavoursome beer.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured as a glass full of off-white foam that produced a hazy pale golden beer. Head retained too well and laced well. Carbonation high. Aroma subtly of malt. Taste subtly of malt with a trace of bitterness. Light body. Dry with a moderate bitterness on the finish. Ordinary at best.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle. Poured a clear, pale and lively amber with a large, rocky and lacing white head with good retention. Aromas of tangerine, mango and a honey glaze sweetness. A dense biscuity, bready malt heft in the mid-palate that became distinctly more evident after swirling in the sediment, and there’s a good hop bite on the back end with a pithy, marmalade and almost resinous bitterness of protracted length. Light to medium body, medium to full carbonation and a firm palate texture. A golden ale with strong, if at times perhaps slightly muddled flavours.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Does what it says on the tin...or bottle. Nothing amazing here. A lager with a bitter finish. Not my cup of tea.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours amber with a large head.
Nose shows soft papaya and tropical fruit along with some light malt.
Flavours include a little more sweet malt alongside soft fruity and spicy hops followed by a mild bitterness.
Carbonation is pretty aggressive.

Nice waft of hops on the aroma. Also some toast and citrus. A wonderfully enjoyable taste. Not too hoppy but just enough to entertain. Slight sting in the finish but not overdone. Great beer to have in a pack.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Awesome malt aroma, smells so fresh. Pretty smooth head, cloudy straw pour. Very light refreshing taste but way too carbonated. Wicked refreshment but finishes poorly.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Lovely golden pour with minimal lacing. Pretty sharp at first with snappy eucalyptic bitterness and intense carbonation. Settles into a lazy, unrefined yeasty drawl before turning bitter again with a long, but not unpleasant hoppy finish. Great effort, but this doesn’t stand up to the Bridge Roads APA I had recently.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Right up my street - low malt - hop forward - decent fruitiness - almost APA profile - so easy to smash back - most enjoyable of the Nail brews for me - great summer ale.
