Bottle from slow beer. Pours muddy brown with a small disappearing white head. Nose upfront has citrus, stone fruit and pine. Taste has a pine hop bitterness. Nice caramel malt backing. Palate is left crisp with a nice hop bitterness. Very fruit driven pale ale. Nice stuff ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice little pale ale. The aroma was prob best aspect. Colour was a golden caramel, taste was a bit behind the aroma but a solid beer overall. At 4.7% a good session beer.

Bif (1505) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Pours a dark golden color with a fair head that fades to some lacing. Aroma of pine, citrus, fruity, with a bit it of caramel and grass. Taste of of some pine and citrus, with a mix of caramel and fruit sweetness and bit of grain. Nice bitterness and a clean finish. Fairly medium body, crisp, smooth and well balanced. Beer has a nice freshness throughout. Enjoyable beer that goes down easy.

Bottle from Slowbeer. "Brewed to Amaze" the label say, and it certainly did! Slightly hazy amber/orange, an amazing combination of aromas and flavours, but subtle and balanced at the same time. Peach, lemonade, rockmelon, pine, caramel, biscuity malt. Excellent!

The Amber and Cara malts give it a very neat bite. Its distinctive, partly because of the combination of malt and hops.. When I first tasted the beer it threw me. It’s not your usual boring pale ale. At first I couldn’t work out if I liked it or not. It’s just different... I came to realise that it’s actually a very decent beer. The use of Cascade and particularly Amarillo hops make this brew a winner, with the latter complimenting the malts and providing it’s distinctive flavour. This is a well crafted and thoughtful beer. As a beer lover I appreciate that and will treat myself again. Lets hope the following batches turn out like this current run.

Davros (1994) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 14, 2013
Pours dark amber with a fading head. Super hoppy aroma, lots of peach, orange blossom, lemon, nectarine and confectionery. Also some soft biscuity malt. Toasty malt as a flavour, along with some of the aforementioned fruit. A bit grassy. Too much carbonation.

Bottle from Acland Cellars in a tulip glass on 9/3/2013. Pours golden brown with a fairly minimal off white head. Strong fruity aroma with elements of tropical/stone fruit and a hint of pine. A mild, slightly caramel malt body with a pleasant bitterness on the finish. A very drinkable pale ale.

Bottle, not sure where from. Aromas of peach, caramel, grass, very well balanced. Taste is sweet and bitter, with average length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Amber, with a frothy head.
