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

Donít exactly know the difference between pale anf gold. Pale is better. Last taste is little wierd.

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

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 Iíd bought six :)

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 donít like beer.

Bottle from Liqorland. Clear, bright amber, slightly metallic, some fruity hops, sweet, almost sugary, grainy aroma. Not great.

ALLOVATE (2466) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 10, 2013
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)

For a golden ale it has an interesting aroma, it is very sessionable and a good choice if you like golden ales.

mkel07 (3662) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - FEB 23, 2013
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.

herbs, floral, golden in glass, lots of carbination to the eye, but head has faded on the first sniff of aroma. light sweetness, medium bitterness, thin feel, lively carbination, - too much kills the taste. Hint of a bitter finish. Next time Iíd let this warm up slightly and settle down the carbonation.
