3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery on a cracking day with some local mussels, probably adding a few points. Pale gold with white frothy head. Floral and citrus aromas. Flavours are a subtle mix of hoppy citrus and honey like malt.

Yellow poor, slightly more cloudy than expected. White head. Nice enough beverage. Refreshing through some nice clean crisp flavours.

330mL bottle. Pours pale straw with a thin white head and a slight citrus aroma. Faint fruity hop flavour and i also get notes of the pilsner malt. Its been crafty well but not my cup of tea.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Produces up a palest, pastel yellow and hazy. Highly effervescent, well conditioned, pushing up an impressive two inches of steady white foam that rises like a plume from the lip of the glass. The head is bitter and citrically sweet and needs to be gnawed off to bring out the aroma. Nose of Granola and barnyard grains, pale honey, lemon candy, yeast and just a little marmalade - overall it gives a very sweet impression. Quite citric in the mouth; a tangy and ripe blend of lemon and lime zest, orange and grapefruit. Who knew from Hallertauer!? Light graininess comes through, delicate almost with yeast and light pine mid-palate. Herbal, grassy and dusty backend dries it out well with a peaking bitterness and gentle finish making for an alarmingly easy drinking ale. Controlled fruity sweetness, every thing in harmony and balanced with a light body and soft mouthfeel to boot. I like it. Probably not ideal giving the plummeting mercury at the moment here in Perth but come Summer I reckon this one would be deadly. A very nice Golden Ale! (33cL, no date stamp, Cellarbrations Carlisle)

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very basic. Straw colour with moderate egg white head. Brisk,clean and a little sour (?) with minimal finish. The bitterness is a little spicy , but generally non descript. Again these guys always promise more than they deliver.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle 330ml. Not very interesting. Lemon, honey, and also diacetyl. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness. Palate is oily, with a thin-to-medium body. Yellow, with a thin head.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330mL as part of our Aussie blind tasting part 3. Poured a hazy, glowing yellow with a relatively dense, white head. Receding but leaving some decent lace. Aroma is honey, sweet grain, some Saaz hop character, orange, curacao. Taste is newspaper, tea, seltzer water, honey, earthy and sickly bitterness. Very poor.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a 330ml bottle on 14/7/2010. Pours very cloudy, with a good dose of sediment. Has a big grassy, floral, fruity aroma with a lychee like perfume. Flavour wise, there is citrus fruit and honey, with some herbal notes. All up, a very enjoyable golden ale. Red Hill is two for two so far.
