Hazy golden ale with a firm white head. Aroma is lovely citrus/lemony and floral hops. Slightly biscuity malt, too. Velvety soft body. Flavor is light citrus and floral hops. Really easy going but with plenty of flavor. Such a great beer and good for a few pints without getting too pissed.

Excellent aroma when the bottle was opened. I was surprised to find it poured quite pale. It is very clear. Tastes great and a welcome addition to the beer fridge.

Absolutely fantastic versatile beer with very well balanced and flavoured hops. Bottle fermenting is a little annoying as it can be difficult to pour a clear beer after a few Pacific Ales in the gullet, but otherwise my favourite Aussie beer of the last few years. Galaxy hops for the win.

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2014 Bottle Light golden ale but unusually has strong citrus hop flavours with little hop bitterness. Easy drinking with a lovely taste. Very refreshing. A great summer beer.
Had on tap later - seemed less fresh and less flavoursome, surprisingly, than the bottle. Didn’t enjoy it as much as the bottle. Lowered my rating a little accordingly.

on tap at the hop factory on darby st, newcastle. very pale, cider-like appearance with a minimal head but decent lacing; aroma of lychee; quick and simple flavours - toffee and lemon zest, hint of stale cider. a bit dull. happy birthday, helen!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle. Rather lager-like in that it poured a lively, clear pale straw yellow with a foamy one-finger white head atop. Fresh and juicy aromas of lemon, mango and tangerine. Similar flavour-wise with a gentle pale malt sweetness finishing with a zesty, pithy bitterness of low intensity and short duration. Light to medium body, medium carbonation with a near watery palate texture. Balanced, crisp and quaffable but lacks bite and mid-palate presence. Nice enough but let down somewhat by the body and finish.

Beautiful sunday afternoon drop with flavours well crafted to suit the heaviness. Smooth to drink. Good head golden appearance. Very nice beer. Best ive tried in a long time. Best consumed though by the 6pack on occasions. Not a day to day beverage.

Bottle at Byrons, Kingston. Slightly cloudy, pale yellow and very little head. Bags of citrusy hops but overall a bit thin and watery.

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2014
May 2014 - Keg at Draft House. Very pale yellow, pretty clear, two finger bubbly white head. Aroma - lager malt, light citrus. Body is light, medium carbonation, slightly foamy. Taste - toned down, very soft malts, touch of lemon and cream, semisweet lemon meringue, soft bitterness. Flavour is decent - just not enough of it for me. (3.4)
Aug 2014 - Keg at LCBF. Pale yellow, a bit cloudy, small white head. Aroma is very light with some background citrus. Body is medium to light, high carbonation. Taste is lemon, musty malt. This batch is overcarbonated. (3.2)

Comes out straw coloured. But the first contact with the aroma gives you a glimpse of a Pacific island. Lots of beach fruit. Lychees, rockmelon, possibly mango come through. Has a spritz feeling before sweet finish.
