A respectful nod to American Pale Ale. Sample has taken the core of this classic and added a hint of novelty from uniquely sourced hops. A citrus and stone fruit aroma is balanced with a malty drive and hoppy bitterness.

Muggus69 (2018) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - MAR 2, 2016
Bottle @ Geelong Hotel Pale gold, wite head. Moderately fruity hop aroma - touch of citrus & ripe fruits, toasty malt perhaps. Medium bodied & carbonation. Again nothing overwelmingly outstanding on the body, but nice enough - citrus peel, peach nectar, cereal sort of malts, moderate bitterness. Run-of-the mill sort of APA

Pyobon (1268) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 30, 2015
(Bottle) Hazy golden brown, tiny head. Lovely aroma of caramel and orange citrus. Light body, good bright carbonation. Refreshing citrus notes over a subtle toffee base with some bitterness in the finish that starts quite gently but builds well. Nice pale ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maneliquor (3483) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 6, 2014
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Not going to go into this too much. It has its merits but Iím finding the hops are struggling to rise above the malt bill on this. It has a good base to it but needs a little refining. Ok

LesArgen (306) - AUSTRALIA - APR 27, 2014
This beer is a good looker, with a cloudy hue that makes it look like an IPA. The aroma is a nice mix of citrus and floral notes but the head rings a few alarm bells as it swirls in the glass, suggesting excessive carbonation. In fact, itís so fizzy in the mouth itís hard to concentrate on anything else. There are plenty of hops, but not much malt backbone.
