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

Pale gold, no head. Smells a bit nasty and funky, more like a green bottle lager. A bit of caramel, grass, but watery and bland. Fuck you for cashing in on "craft beer" Liquorland - this is the second bottle of shit brewed "under licence" I’ve had tonight, with the awful promise of one more to come. Considering this is the same price as James Squire or Little Creatures there is absolutely nothing to recommend this shit.

had a good amber orange, but a little cloudy with moderate bubbles and minimal head. Had a fairly faint caramel smell, with a lightly sweet, lightly, lightly bitter with slightly caramel flavour. I found it to be light to medium bodied, with a lightly creamy texture and softly carbonated. A slightly bitter aftertaste which I like. Overall, for my palate, very moderately pleasing and would be easy to drink on a warm summer day, but lacking any complexity and interesting rich flavours to make me want to pursue this beer.

TedE (731) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 2, 2015
330ml bottle into schooner glass. Peppery sweet nose, even a touch of citrus. Pale amber beer with small white head. A lot of tiny bubbles rising. A bit watery. Finish is short with faint notes of caramel,pepper, lemon and lavender. Not bad, eminently drinkable.

Morboso (136) - AUSTRALIA - APR 19, 2015
Not overly complex but pretty good, enough of that piney hop aroma and bitterness to say "I am okay". I never read other reviews before rating but I am guessing this is pretty harshly criticised as being a macro, but it is actually pretty good within the price range.

Bland, boring and tastes of large scale brewing. Gave me a headache. Could not be bothered with a thoughtful deScription. Mass produced swill masquerading as a craft beer.

Sissio (1072) - Orsenigo, ITALY - DEC 23, 2014
Clear golden, minimal cream head. Malts with some caramel, Brian sugar, wild honey, orange and hops. Simple taste, floral and lightly fruity, bitter ending and aftertaste.

sm89walt (1850) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 21, 2014
Bottle. A clear amber with a small, somewhat lasting white to off-white head. Aromas of mid-fruits, citrus, caramel malts and grass whilst following a similar thread to taste. Light to medium body, medium carbonation with a moderate intensity grassy bitterness to finish. Slightly protracted in length with a hoppy bite to an otherwise tangy mid-fruit bulk.

Jado (719) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - SEP 22, 2014
From 330 ml bottle. Pours a clear golden-amber with a sudsy white head and OTT carbonation. Virtually no aroma to speak of, maybe a little bit of fresh apple. Taste is a weird mix of corn, dirt, vague bitterness and a metallic note. Clean finish with no aftertaste. Wrong on many levels.

All varieties of Steamrail taste exactly the same. It’s just the different colour labels that make you think they are different.

Its a good ale for the price. Beer snobs will hate it, as its brewed for Coles and can only be bought from Liquorland as far as I am aware. Tastes better than the Little Creatures Pale Ale, Nuff said !!
