Bottle- Good golden colour. Nice hop aromas and flavours, not big hop flavour but still enough too make it interesting. A decent beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle into glass. Another ’supermarket’ beer disguised as craft. ’Australian Beer Connoissers’ seem to be the Dr. Evil of Australian beer at the moment. On with the beer.....Nice floral hop nose. Yellow beer with lasting white head. A few bubbles. Chalky mineral mouthfeel with lemony hop notes in the finish. Nice beer made by faceless corporate types.

Don’t exactly know the difference between pale anf gold. Pale is better. Last taste is little wierd.

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

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Delicious craft pale ale with all of the idiosyncrasies one would expect from the craft brew scene in Melbourne, Australia. Only had the one but has all of the characteristics one would associate with a session beer and wish I’d bought six :)

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Gold pour with a thin white head. Stone fruit and citrus aroma with a little malt. Taste is slightly sweet, peaches, very low bitterness and something slightly chemical. Ok but not great

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2013 Forgettable... Um, what was that I was drinking...? Insipid. Beer for people who don’t like beer.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Liqorland. Clear, bright amber, slightly metallic, some fruity hops, sweet, almost sugary, grainy aroma. Not great.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Lively pour settles out a sparkling, sunny gold with high effervescence. Messy, sloppy pad of white atop holds on for the length and laces well. Aroma of mandarins, apricots, grass and bitter herbs with just a little metallic taint. Thin, soapy and foamy palate dominated by drabby hops and citric fruit esters. Medial bitterness in the finish before fading off rapidly but hinting at passionfruit and mandarin flesh. Pronounced pine and dusty grains mid-palate. Agreeable and very sessionable. Nothing to whine about in this one! (33cL, BB Liquorland Merriwa)

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
For a golden ale it has an interesting aroma, it is very sessionable and a good choice if you like golden ales.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml bottle from Liquorland. Big fluffy white head atop a bright amber beer. Light passionfruit and citrus flavour. There is not much going on in the aroma. Sessionable enough. Okay beer for a lazy Sunday afternoon.
