3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A very nice American style pale ale. This particular serving was on the flat side which detracted from the palate. Overall pretty good and very enjoyable.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap. Very sessionable APA. Nose is fruity and sweet, but indicates that there is not a large flavour. Body ostensibly very light, carbonation is medium. While all the citrus, pine and grassy hop flavours are there, it appears there is a shortfall in most of the elements. I would have liked more malt and more hops to make this interesting and memorable. Not a bad beer, but not memorable in the slightest

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Keg - Pittwater Food and Wine, Mona Vale, Sydney. Poured a slightly hazy deep amber with a small, creamy beige head of good retention. Fragrant hop aromas and fruit characters a la peach and tangerine with a supporting biscuity pale malt sweetness. Light to medium body, medium carbonation and a modest length finish that just lacks a little intensity and presence.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a bottle. Pleasant fruity aroma of stone fruit, crisp clean fruity flavours of the hops with a hint of malt smoothness. Quite a nice drop.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Some passion fruit aroma. Clear amber golden colour with good head. Nicely balanced bitter hop and caramel malt. Crisp finish that begs you to have another mouthful. Light to med body with med carbonation

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

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
