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 (7900) - Carlsbad, 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.

Pyobon (862) - 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.

UPDATED: AUG 16, 2010 decent pale ale, wouldnt describe this as a session beer, good place to start before moving on

davidm (1926) - 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.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 14, 2010
Draught at The Local Taphouse (Sydney). A clear amber. Grain on the nose. Grainy again on the palate - quite weak. A hop tang with a light citrus, along with a raw dryness to finish. Struggled.

Jade (401) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 9, 2010
Pours a dark amber colour. Wonderful thick and creamy white head that hangs around for a while. Very light aroma, almost not present at all. Flavour of hops and light fruit. Has quite a creamy texture in the mouth, and leaves a bitter aftertaste. A very nice summer afternoon beer.

floydian1 (827) - FNQ, Australia, - JAN 5, 2010
330ml bottle from Dan Murphy’s. Pours golden-amber with a medium off white head that provides good lacing. Nose is perfume-like with floral and citrus hops on top of a caramel malty base. Taste is nicely balanced between the malt sweetness and hop bitterness. Finishes dry and bitter. Medium bodied with an almost creamy mouthfeel and lowish carbonation. Highly drinkable. Much better than I expected.
