"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.

The beer is very watery, and it hasnít 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 (2772) - 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. Iíd 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 ísteamrailí brewers really are. Itís such a boring beer I almost fell asleep drinking it. Itís 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 (1669) - 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 wouldnít know it by looking at the labelling. Very shifty.
