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.

Jado (575) - 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.

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.

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, it’s 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.)

On tap. Very Pale pilsner-like pour. Not the expected Golden.. Tiny White head. Small malty Nose, taste has a bit of hops, then long malty finish. Average carbonation, average beer..

Maris (1023) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - OCT 31, 2013
From a 330ml bottle on 31/10/2013. Pours a relatively clear golden with a medium to large fluffy head. Has a mild but pleasant aroma featuring stone fruit and passionfruit. There’s not much malt evident but there’s lots of zesty citrus fruit and a bit more stone fruit sweetness, finished off by quite a firm, almost tart hop finish. Has a medium body and carbonation. This is a quite solid golden ale, with quite a bit of character for only 4.5%.
