Very hoppy aroma with a slight malt hit. Cloudy amber colour with excellent head. Initial hit of caramel, then crisp bitter hops and a smooth finish. Medium to heavy body with medium carbonation.

A brew that exceeded my expectations. Looked good, smelled good, and tasted better than good. Will definitely try other beers from this brewer.

I didn’t realise this is such a good beer. Drank out of the stubby, pour into a glass next time. Nice aroma of citrus hop, well-balanced even sweet taste. nice, mild pine bitter finish. Reminds me of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale

Not bad, not bad. At first I was a little skeptical as the head was modest and aroma a bit funky. Poured at a good temperature with a smallish, cream-colored, thick, short lived head and some lace. Color is a clear honey amber with bubble trails. Aroma is malt, barn yard, funk. Flavor is way better with resiny hop in front, then tang, then a nice dose of sweet to balance. This beer grows on me the more I drink it, esp. if I ignore whiffing it. Body is very good; ditto carbonation. Finish is like flavor, of average length, no off qualities, super drinkable. Bravo!

Low carbonation. Nice lychee and grapefruit smells. Dull taste with slight bitterness which lasts on the palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Heavily malted, citrus, super sweet. Lightly carbonated, highly drinkable for the sweetness.

The aroma is orange, lemon and sawdust, giving an incredibly dry smell. The taste is surprisingly tart, with the malt somewhat overwhelmed.

Mid gold pour with a thin white head. Aroma of citrus, sweet smelling, caramel. Taste is a little citrus then becomes thicker, marmalade, with long bitter finish.

Bottle at the Australian Hotel in Sydney
Clear golden with a small off-white head and some lacing. Aroma is dusty caramel and floral. Flavors of dusty caramel and some mild pine bitterness
Ok, but too malty for me to enjoy.
