COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Craft brewed in the American style using Australian and English malted barley and American Cascade hops. A refreshing ale with a prominent citrus hop note, balanced towards hop flavour and bitterness.

One Iíve tried a few times with differing results. Definitely comes across as one thatís better quaffed fresh at the brewery as the hops donít quite pull off what they set out to achieve.
5 on 5 for appearance. Radiant and shimmering, fiery copper body with minute flecks of proteins in suspension. Very fine, intermittent carbonation holds steady a two-finger, dense and satiny smooth, off-white crown that manages some solid lace-work. Sticky, sweet toffee and cereal-like toasted malts dominate the aroma with a grassy and citrus fruit edge. Quite grainy, dry and cereal-like on first sip. Citrus is reserved to the bitter side, like under-ripe oranges and lime zest. Assertively bitter, herbal, dry and grassy finish to it drops off without a trace. Yeasty also, mildly sulphurous but nothing too alarming. Shows good balance, a light body and moderate carbonation. Easily knock back a few without too much effort.

Sevenlee (1451) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - FEB 16, 2012
Pour a clear amber colour with an off-white head. Aroma is cirtus hops. Taste is also citrus, light fruits leading to a modest bitter finish. Slightly watery. Overall, not bad.

Rosslew (280) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 25, 2012
Pours nicely with a solid white head and a rich copper tone. Not a strong head retention. Nice aroma and strong orange-like taste on top of mouth. Seems more like American pale ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maneliquor (3362) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 6, 2012
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Opaque amber pour with a small beige head. Rather sweet nose on this one. Candy and floral hops with a touch of citrus. Citrus in the taste with sweet candy and sweet toffee behind it all. Surprisingly has decent length. Pretty average

Bottle - Pale amber with a creamy white head. Sweet candy and flowery hop aroma. Dry Orange and flowery taste up front with a lingering bitter hop finish. Nice creamy palate.

Brenhophead (629) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 18, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2012 330mL bottle pours golden with a creamy lasting head and an amazing sweet lemon/lime aroma. This is my re-rate of this beer and iím so glad i decided to try it again because its blowing me away. The sweet citrus flavours are backed by some quality malts. The best before on this bottle is 3.1.12 so iím guessing its only 1-2 months old.

Deep copper amber with great head retention and fine carbonation. Sweetness in the malt and citrus in the hop department. Quite dry and a little resinous in the finish.

Pored from a 330ml bottle, this beer was a delightful surprise, it was good to find another great pale ale to quench my thirst at the end of a hot day, a good session beer with nice citrusy hops and some mild to dark fruit flavours, this beer doesnt stand out from the crowd as much as it suggests it should going by its price tag and if it were cheaper i would buy it more often but for now i think i will stick with little creatures pale ale.

GT2 (8938) - San Diego County, California, USA - NOV 19, 2010
330mL. The champion from our blind tasting. Pours a clear to near hazy amber cinnamon with a massive, rocky, tan head with excellent retention and giant, poofy lace. Aroma of cinnnamon, honey, fresh orange, citrus zest, caramel. Taste was boozy, bitter, pretty in your face, rich, some relative alcohol warming even from a measly 5.4%. Really outstanding.
