With aroma popping from the glass akin to a tropical fruit bowl just begging you to have a taste! Our golden ale carries malt sweetness upfront with moderate bitterness finishing dry to make this beer a delightful thirst quencher!

This beer is too hoppy for me. I’m definitely not into it and won’t be getting it again but hoppy beers aren’t for me.

Growler from Alexandria brewery for Christmas - thanks Shaz. Murky straw colour, small white head. Huge tropical fruit aroma with pineapple dominating. More tropical fruit flavours, fresh grassy hops and a solid caramel malt background. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330 mL, BeerBud Advent pack. Pours bright amber orange with fine carbonation and a light head. Attractive fresh fruity malty aroma. Mildly flavoured palate, easy drinking but finishes a little short.

varanid99 (901) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 28, 2015
Gold pour with a fluffy white head. Tropical fruit, a little manky aroma. Taste is a bit weak - some very light tropical fruit and malt but a bit thin. Nothing spectacular.

ALLOVATE (2816) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 9, 2015
Day 9 of my advent calendar.
Unfortunately served up way too chilled and thus aroma and flavour suffered. It settles a dull amber and bright. Head a mess of white foam that daubs a thick lace. Supple, tropical, fruit tingle nose - a little musty and unclean. Creamy, foamy palate not offering too much up at all. Soft rubber and plastic notes atop a powdery malt profile. Drabby fruit esters with very little bitterness to balance. Light bodied overall. Not much going to excite but to its credit it drinks easily. Hoped for more! (33cL, BB 07/07/16, Boozebud)

ladnewton (1726) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2015
Draught at the Woolly Mammoth, Brisbane on 4th September 2015. Pale gold with thin white head and spot lacing. Fine grapefruit citrus aroma. Grass and grapefruit in-mouth, and a fruity finish. Zingy mouthfeel and light body. A tasty golden ale.

330ml bottle. I sank a few of these after a day at the beach; makes a great session golden. Has good balance between crisp and refreshing citrus-accented hops, sweeter stone fruits and biscuity pale malts. Light to medium in body with medium carbonation and a moderate intensity and length finish.

Pint on tap at Harts Pub. Strong fruity citrus nose. Golden beer with thin white head. Flat and chalky in the mouth. Zingy juicy fruit finish. Late malt balances it beautifully. Really good.
