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.

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 !!

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

Davros (2027) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 16, 2013
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.

mkel07 (3662) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - FEB 13, 2013
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.

Murky yellow amber colour poor head and lacing. Citrus herbal hop malt spice aroma. Malt hop fruit flavor. Fizzy palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Druid (90) - Wamuran, AUSTRALIA - OCT 6, 2013
A refreshing and enjoyable beer. Has light hop and malt aromas and a taste to match. Well balanced but generally lacking fullness for this style of beer.

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..

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

Maris (1019) - 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...

Cantabrian (879) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 21, 2013
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.
