Brenhophead (553) - 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 i’m 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 i’m 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 (8380) - 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.

Bottle. Clear dark amber body witha small off-white head. Aroma-taste-citrus, resin, toasty moderate bitterness. Low-moderate carbonation.

Pyobon (912) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 10, 2010
Bottle. Clear copper colour with nice off white head. Lovely floral and fruity aroma. Medium body with fairly fizzy carbonation. Taste has a tangy fruit (citrus, mango) start moving through a rather weak biscuity malt flavour to a good bitter finish which is perhaps a little too harsh. Overall it’s a good pale ale.

ndon (857) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2010 decent pale ale, wouldnt describe this as a session beer, good place to start before moving on

davidm (1928) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - FEB 25, 2010
Bottle. Good APA. Aromas of grass, and roasted malt. Taste has a sweet start, with bitterness taking over for a long finish. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Orange, with a frothy white head.
