This ale is brewed considering tradition but with a discerning Australian drinker in mind. Our pale presents with a balance of malts and hops in flavour. The late additions of Cascade & Hallertau hops lend interesting aromatics to this beer.

Straw coloured body with a fluffy white head. Some lacing. Fruity aroma with sweet malts. A little yeast in the taste along with some apricot, a little too unbalanced for me to have more than one.

Had this on tap at a couple of places around Melbourne now, pours cloudy golden... much like a coopers pale. Creamy white head. Soft, fruity aroma... quite generic bit you cant really fault it. A touch of green hops, a light splattering of sweet cereal malts and some herbal notes too. Body is as middle ground as you can get, its one you could drink all night, soft, hoppy enough to be interesting and herbal, and malty enough to give a light grainy sweetness on the back of the tongue. Maybe its drier in the finish, a touch of dried apricot or something. Not going to win any awards for creativity, but overall its pretty faultless and gets a very high drinkability score from me.

19 Jul 2006 - (Victorian Microbrewer’s Showcase) - Very light sweet fruit malt aroma. Amber colour, OK head and lacing. Simple light sweet malt hop flavour. Plain malt and hop finish.

Another decent effort from What’s. glowing orange apricot in the glass with a thin patchy head. Fruity note with added complexity via spicy ginger / nettle note - nice. Steps down a notch in the palate as the malts don’t really make their presence felt. Quite dry with decent hop input, again herbal and spicy, although I should stress "elegant" in terms of flavour intensity. Medium length finish with some confectionary like malts finally making an appearance.
