"Ghost of Eyre" Pale ale with balanced hops and malt. The Ghost of Eyre Pale Ale has a well restrained crisp bitterness. The bitterness is offset by a caramel taste, as well as fruity and floral notes.

From a bottle. Not much aroma, crisp with a little hops bitterness, it?s pretty good for a macro.

No head retention. Not enough aroma. Tastes weak and disappointing attempt by a major retailer to quickly and cheaply make a craft beer. Avoid. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A refreshing and enjoyable beer. Has light hop and malt aromas and a taste to match. Well balanced but generally lacking fullness for this style of beer.

Davros (2164) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 16, 2013
Pours amber with a fading head. Nose shows sweet malt with hay notes alongside floral hops with a soft fruity hint. Very similar flavours, some light malt character with more floral and spicy hops. Feels a bit lacking beyond the initial burst. Body feels a little watery.

The beer is very watery, and it hasn’t got much flavour. Attempts to sell itself as a craft beer, but fails on pretty much all levels. Certainly not planning to go back for this one.

Bottle from Liqorland. Clear pale amber, citrus, grass, some sweet malt. Not bad, but not great.

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2013 I must say that the experience overall was good, given the fact that I had this beer available from the Air New Zealand lounge in Sydney. It should be made clear that the Sydney Airport overall offers the traveller an ocean of mediocrity, with a broad range of crap beers. So finding this beer among James Boags Draught and Pure Blonde was paradise. Its fruitiness - grapes, passion fruit and grapefruit - and mild bitterness were more than welcoming.

ALLOVATE (2522) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 10, 2013
Chilled and into a tulip. Low carbonation results in a headless, thinly looking, sparkling orange beer. Aroma has hints of lime, grapefruit, metal shards, sweaty sock and cardboard. Buttery and soapy in the mouth. Ill-defined hops add a citric sourness to it; the bitterness soft and vacant. No length with a slickness that is off-putting. Watery otherwise. This one has nothing going for it. I’d savour a Golden Ale over this. Not good!! (33cL, BB 23/03/14, Liquorland Merriwa)
