Didn't quite deliver. Really pale yellow, with a blotchy head, lightly floral hops aroma. Kind of like a cross between an American and Australian pale ale. Light and crisp with some tropical fruit. Pretty boring. Crisp, slightly citric finish, low bitterness.

Tried on tap at the Regatta Hotel. No 2 of the 4 that I tried that night. Wouldn’t exactly call it a pale ale so maybe a golden ale is an apt description.

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.

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)

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
17/10: Golden clear with short white head. Very poor retention. Head was gone within a minute. Floral hoppy citrus (cascade? williamette?) aroma. Mild mouthfeel, though thin finish. Taste was like a thin less malty little creatures. Grapefruit/citric, bitter finish. Average APA.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
