Bottle - pours hazy gold with a tight white head. Some stone fruit with hints of biscuit malt. Light fruit on the taste, not much bitterness, thin mouthfeel.

Malrider69 (62) - Central Coast, AUSTRALIA - FEB 3, 2015
Pours a clear, golden colour with medium white head. Pleasant grassy aroma with taste being malty and slightly bitter which sits nicely on the palate. A reasonable session beer.

bgb1991 (125) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 30, 2015
Citrusy and metallic nose. Decent pour, but who cares. This beer is underrated. A very smooth and well rounded golden ale. Well carbonated, good fruity bitterness with some grassy bite.

Davros (2127) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 20, 2015
Pours amber with a fading head. Nose shows spicy hops and sweet grainy malt. Some grainy malt as a flavour too along with some spicy and grassy hops. Some malt sweetness.

Jado (593) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - OCT 2, 2014
From 330 ml bottle. Pours a clear gold with a smooth lasting white head and moderate carbonation. Aromas are very light but some baked apple and white bread come through. Taste starts out with soft fruit before a grassy hop note kicks in with some peach and honey overtones. Clean finish with a light fresh pear aftertaste. More-ish.

highlandlad (1430) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - FEB 24, 2014
Got to be a big disparity between the keg and bottled versions, judging by the reviews below. This bottled version tastes depressingly like what a golden ale might taste like if Budweiser made it. In other words, itís more of an alcohol-delivery system than a richly flavoured beer. Hello taste? Pours a hazy unfiltered gold with a brief, begrudging head. The aroma of canned peaches and passionfruit is undone by a rubbery autolysed yeast note. So far, so mediocre, but it gets worse on the tongue. Tastes mainly of soda water. Faint, indeterminate summer fruits and not nearly enough malt to provide any backbone. Fizzy palate, slightly overdone for the style. Dunno what the hop is but the finish verges on the sort of metallic unpleasantness typical of Pride of Ringwood. Pretty poor effort. (330ml bottle from Wentworth Falls bottlo.)
