Dredd (779) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - JAN 22, 2016
Decent pale ale. The aroma is a mix of bread, pine hops and citrus. Flavor is mostly the sabe as the aroma with the hop pine finish dominating.

jc1762 (553) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 14, 2015
Poured into a taster showing barely translucent amber, no head, and light filtration. The nose shows roasted corn and fried seafood. Two bottles in row, I’m wondering is my batch off. The palate is light bodied and lightly carbonated. Flavors of light tartness and not much else. Light malty finish and barely any bitterness.

willisread (2018) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 7, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2015 Re-rate: Tap at Tsuki To Taiyo. Very mild aromas of fruit. Body is a tad heavy with more fruit and very little hop character. Slight bitter finish. Well-balanced but fairly boring. Tap at CBM Jimbocho. Served in an English pint glass. Golden amber color with a nice off-white soapy head. Fruit forward aromas present. Apricot, peach, cantaloup with hints of citrus on the nose. Great malty balance and fruit flavors on the palate. Creamy mouthfeel with fruit basket flavors hanging on until the finish. Nice dry and fruity finish. Very well-balanced.

Wombata (614) - Kobe, JAPAN - APR 29, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2013 Aroma: floral, citrus, peach, apricot, orange, light pineapple, some earthiness and grain. Flavor: starts with orange peach, and apricot, followed by grainy malt with the underlying bitterness coming out on the mid-palate. Finishes with lingering fruit, grain and a growing bitterness. Comment: great interplay of fruit and bittering that lasts nearly 30 seconds. A medley of Fresh fruit salad on the nose. A superb pale ale that shows off the malt. Dry hopped real ale version at Eni-bru Aroma: light orange Flavor: orange and grapefruit with light bitterness. Comment: light-medium body with very smooth mouthfeel. 37pts.
