COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"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.

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 (2333) - 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)

This beer is brewed exclusively for coles retail sales, although - good luck trying to find any info about who ’steamrail’ brewers really are. It’s such a boring beer I almost fell asleep drinking it. It’s a plain, boring, and clearly a cash driven brew. Not going back to this one.

Bottle. Golden straw with white head. Aromas of mandarines and a little biscuity malt. OK. Flavours are somewhat muted which not a lot coming through. Carbonation is a little to high.

Sevenlee (1253) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - MAR 24, 2013
Pours a light yellow colour with a white head. Aroma is some malt, citrus and grass. Taste is light to medium sweet leading to a citrusy finish. OK.

Actually not too bad a beer. However is brewed by Coles even though you wouldn’t know it by looking at the labelling. Very shifty.

Maris (952) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - MAR 10, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2013 From a 330ml bottle on 11/3/2013. Pours a clear very light golden with a small head. Has a slight aroma of bready malt and a hint of citrus and honey. The flavour is relatively sweet and fruity, with a hint of caramel malt. A slight to medium hop bitterness finishing things off. A reasonable, pleasant enough APA (not English in style) but not much different to a raft of other subdued, inoffensive Aussie pales which seem to be hitting the market of late. Still, I guess one should be thankful they’re not making more abysmal pale lagers...
