3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is really nice, a lovely summer beer! Gorgeous deep gold colour, sharp and gently sour on the nose, moderately bodied and soothing on the tounge, sharp bitterness fading to a moreish hoppy aftertaste. Nice gentle relaxing malt base carries a mix of sweetness and sourness nicely. A lovely golden ale.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2013 Draft sample followed by a full bottle. Unfiltered gold body with a fine white head. It’s a bright and vibrant aroma of lemon zest, citrus pith, white pepper, sulfur / minerals. Malt presence is mild but provides a comforting warm baked sourdough bread quality. Dry, tart, lean, bitter with lip-smacking hop acids, soft malt and carbonation and the yeast adds further creaminess to the body. A+ for this unfiltered hoppy golden ale.

There is a earthy/hay type aroma and pours a golden clear colour. Light sweet taste to a light bitter finish. Easy drinking beer.

The head is good, the body blond. It smells a bit fruity, more flowery, bitter. The taste is flowery, bitter-refreshing, fresh, nice.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (330ml) from Beer Cartel, Sydney. Bright golden pour with decent white head that reduces to a stable collar. I get hoppy lemony aromas with traces of pineapple on top of a golden malt base. Tastes like a decent hoppy Summery Golden Ale with lemony finish and moderate bitterness. Pleasant refreshing smooth palate.

Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours clear golden with a small white head. Nose is lots of hay and light pepper. Taste is pretty much the same. Solid but a boring style

Draft at Bin 44. Hazy pale yellow color, thin white head, solid lacing. Aroma of white pepper, straw, hay. Taste is white pepper and rising white bread dough. Very nice full and creamy mouthfeel.

A nice brew to start a session. Nothing to write home about - but nothing to complain about either. Would be happy to have another if offered.

Golden colour with citrus and a big long lasting sour vegemite bite at the end. Very nice in the NZ style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Plonk. Clear pale yellow, quickly fading head, lots of lemon/citrus and some dusty/musty character, quite a light and refreshing drink, not over the top but a quality drop nonetheless.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale gold with a small white head that doesn’t last. Aroma of lemon, lime leaf, hay, hints of gooseberry. Low carbonation, light bodied. Hay and a little honey, lots of lemon. Pleasant dust-cutter.
