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.

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.

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...

Doesn't look much but does keep a head. Not much in smell and a light taste of hops. Nice on the palate. Not bad. Not spectacular either. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

citrus aroma’s, faded too quickly to emjoy. pale amber appearance, pillowy head, ovious carbonation to the eye maintaning the thickness of the head to about 10mm salty, lightly sour, medium bitterness, medium sweetness, thick feel, surprising that its a comfortable mild to lively carbonation but yet its still got a great head, I thought it would be over carbed by sure. Pretty happy really and easy 3.5 plus

pours near clear gold with light off white head. Aromas of apricot, grass, light tropical fruits and crystal malts, light med body, refreshing palate a touch grainy on finish but good overall, lingering sweet astringent cordial..

330ml bottle from Liquorland. This beer has created a lot of hype for the wrong reasons. Very clear in the glass with a big soft white cloud of foam that collapses quickly. Golden amber colour. The aroma is a mix of grapefruit and straw and this is reflected in the flavour. Okay without being great.

Pyobon (909) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 28, 2013
(Bottle) Clear pale amber yellow with no head. Pleasant citrus aroma with hints of candy and grass. Light bodied and a little over fizzy. Initial taste is quite peasant with a balance of candy sweetness and softly citrus tang. This shifts fairly smoothly to a bitter finish, which is fairly prominent and lasting but unfortunately is rathe harsh and metallic. It’s quite respectable for a beer that seems to have been manufactured for a chain of liquor stores, but it lacks real class.

Bottle- Very pale in colour with a spritzy white head. Very subtle hop flavours. It is rather thin and bland.

Pours a light golden color with a decent head that fades to some lacing. Mild aroma of citrus, some caramel sweetness and grain. Taste of light citrus, some malt sweetness and grain. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Fairly moderate body, smooth but bland, a bit short on flavor. Comes across as a fairly boring, non-offensive offering.
