Excellent. Three sessions re-proving it’s quality. Perfect use of crystal malts, including their aroma moving to an impeccable hop taste, with hop aroma coming thought sinuses. Lingering bitterness can be too much if applied to incorrect foods, but is always moorish. Love it.

Very enjoyable beer, though not sure if is truly a pale ale. Pours a beautiful deep solid orange colour with small-medium sized white head that somewhat lasted. Aroma is suprisingly strong of malt, honey-molasses followed by grapefruit and passionfruit citrus hops. Flavour is initially sweet and malty moving quickly to dry bitterness of pine resin and citrus peels with wisps of honey moving in at the end. Medium bodied, oily mouthfeel, with very very very long bitter finish. Yeah, will drink this again, but... pale ale... really?

On tap at Little Brewing, pours a cloudy golden orange with a medium beige head. Aroma brings out piney and citrusy hops, followed by biscuity malt. Flavour is clean, with piney hops and dry biscuity malt. Well-balanced and fresh. Like an American pale.

Surprising crisp taste, goes well with a medium rare rump steak. Flavours of citrus and hops ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bottle from the prince of wales bottle-o in the junction. pretty frothy emerging from the bottle; lightly hazed amber; some pine and citrus in the aroma trails off pretty quickly; modest bitterness, clean but a little flat

330ml bottle. Pale amber / copper colour with an aggressive, whispy off white head which quickly subsided. On the second pour the head became denser and lasted well before reducing to a disc and left some very nice lace. Yeast lurking at the bottom of the bottle. Citrus hop aroma, with tropical fruit punch and a hint of pine resin. Light sweetness and light to medium bitterness. Medium body; smooth, creamy texture; average carbonation and lingering, chewy, bitterness in the finish. Not bad.

330ml bottle into glass. Caramel malt nose. Copper beer with thin off-white head. Flat and bitter in the mouth. Creamy bittersweet finish. Good, moreish. Perhaps too sweet and too brown for a pale ale but who cares?

On a recent trip to Australia I went through about 15 new beers, mostly Pale Ales, and this was my highest ranked Pale Ale. Hoppier than a lot of others but not as strong as an IPA so smoother on the palate and could easily knock a few down. well worth a try

Shark_Pants (585) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 15, 2015
Sunset orange colour with a few flecks of sediment and a large 3 finger rocky tan head that hangs around. Very floral and fruity aromas - perfume roses, tangerine, a little papaya and passionfruit - very inviting indeed. Fortunately, the taste isn?t too bad either. Reasonably sweet, with the tangerine, a little passionfruit, a bit of lightly toasted white bread and finishes with marmalade and then a light dryness. The light body helps make it easily drinkable and quite refreshing. Very good pale ale.
