2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
minimal head sits upon a pale yellow poor. Not much in the way of aroma. A nice crisp taste. Nice enough for a straight up pale ale

didnt have high expectations for this beer so i wasnt let down. an inital smell of skunk soon disapated, the colour and head isnt much to speak of, rather poor. tastes of orange and hoppy citrus flavours,
mid to high carbonation, overall quite an average beer. i really dont think it should be in the 48th percentile, i can think of many other beers that rate lower and are much more enjoyable

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours lively but settles down with haste. Carbonation minute, in fine streams. Head struggles its height retreating back to a thin pad of white with no lacing. Body is orange amber, not quite clear with some floaties of questionable origin. The bottle looks as though clear glass has been spray-painted with cola coloured lacquer, strange!!. Aroma of mango and peach, salted, roasted nuts, rubber and vine clippings. Creamy mouthfeel dulls out quick, light in body. Some bitterness to the back end and into the swallow. Light notes of toasted grain and pine-wood, some freshness of orange flesh and zest. Aftertaste of peanuts, pine and subtle citrus. Pretty unexciting unfortunately. Slam one back with too much ease, nothing here to get the brain ticking. Think I’ll stick with there Pilsner given the choice!! (33cL, no date stamp, Dan Murphy’s Mandurah)

Bottle: Looks pleasantly summery in the glass; all froth and golden highlights. In the nose there is some tart malt and a faint whiff of lemon. Rolled around the mouth, this beer gives a pleasant creamy mouthfeel, with a very restrained but well utilised bitterness. I found myself wishing for more flavour, though. Sure there is plenty of golden malt and a memory of fresh bitey herbs, but I wanted some character and some distinction. Still, this isn’t to take away the good points of what is a solid drinking beer.

Thin white head over a light amber body. Nose of grass and fresh cut lawns, hints of a salty breeze as well. Apricot and hop grass notes, bittier finish. Crisp palate. Actually reminds me of Storm Golden Ale out of Bali. Not bad...

Tap. Nice aroma, but too sweet flavour. Aroma is citrusy, and bubblegum. Flavour is sweet, with average length, and only light bitterness. Palate is oily, and medium-bodied. Yellow colour, with a fizzy head that disappears.

Bottle. Gold with fading white head. Hay malts and floral and citrus hops on the nose. Clean, slightly bitter finish. This is a weird beer. I disliked it the first time I had it because I was expecting some sort of pale ale. I see it’s listed here as gold/ blond. But it comes across as a pils with some wit characteristics. Once my confounded expectations were adjusted, I quite liked it.
