3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
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)

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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...
