2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Another disappointingly muddy and gutless APA. Whatís the point of difference with this from a sales perspective? You can buy Fat Yak for less if this is your thing. I fear for the future of a lot of the new(ish) brewers coming through if all they are going to do is produce blueprints of stuff the majors produce more reliably for less. For Godís sake brew something else. Itís like the lesson of Little Creatures has been forgotten already. The mild peachy aroma tells you not nearly enough hops went into the kettle to produce any excitement. Thereís nothing wrong with how it smells but already Iím downgrading my expectations. Bit thin in the body but the carbonation is good. Malt bill seems a bit light. Hop-wise, itís about 30% short of being interesting. Itís much better than their golden ale but thatís not much of a benchmark. (330ml bottle from Wentworth Falls bottlo)

on tap at the hop factory in newcastle. sure enough, pale and aleish; simple, steady, clean, light bitterness, a bit of a snoozefest

Pleasant craft pale ale. Serves well from bottle with small head. Nice hop high notes, quaffable but not spectacular.

Light amber, light fruity nose, but overripe fruit as well. Light, a bit bland, light hops.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a 330ml bottle on 1/11/2013. Pours a clear golden with a medium head. Has a slight fruity aroma. The flavour is more distinctive, with quite a bit of fruitiness (particularly stone fruit) with a decent dry bitterness at the back. Has a fullish body and medium carbonation. Not a bad APA.
