Bottle from the aussie bar in the Gaslamp (canít remember itís name). Pours with a deep amber body topped by a thin head with some lacing. Itís nice and hoppy wtih a grassy and slightly grapefruity note as well as an underlying sweet maltiness. Meidum bodied and tingly from the carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle (330ml). Poured a copper color with a off-white, frothy head which was mostly diminishing. Aroma was of leeches, strawberries with mixed berries and mild notes of hops. Flavor was of canned fruit, strawberries, raspberries, mild toffee and a mild hop bitterness. Light bodied with lively carbonation, watery texture, light mouthfeel and an average finish.

Best mid-strength on the market. The only one with a nice balance of hops and malt. Perfect for those nights you just have to be the driver etc.

Nice pour of dark red brown ,small head aroma sweet and citric ,has a nice crisp taste of berries and citrus ,carbonation was good made a difference.Some flavours weren,t strong as to make it a tangy drink,though the finish result was okay leaving a pleasant result of freshness.Very good for 3.8% beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle bb 12 July 07. Nice clear amber colour with a good generous head retention. Faint malt aromas with a touch of woodiness - something like oak notes. Nicely structured malt palate. Clean and interesting with enough caramels & toffee to give it some complexity and a dry bitter finish. Nice to see a beer at the low abv range have some interest. Well made as youíd expect from these guys.

This little bottle of amber ale is a very nice experience. Itís golden with a nice, dense head, not big but very lasting. The aroma has notes of malt, caramel, aroma hops and fruit - and so does the flavour. Itís nice, harmonic and has a delicious, bitter and crisp note. A beer as I like them: Lots of harmonic taste and a low ABV. 1589

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle -- A sparkling light amber brew with a small whitish head with not much retention but fair lacing. Gentle hoppy honey aroma. More gentleless in its malty fruity flavour. A gentle aftertaste with some bitterness. You can tell itís low in alcohol but it still has much more complexity than other lower alcohol beers.
