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.

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.

GT2 (9411) - Oceanside, 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 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

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.

maneliquor (3482) - 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

hawthorne00 (3318) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 5, 2009
UPDATED: APR 4, 2011 Amber, slightly cloudy. Off-white head. Cascade hops, grapefruit and heaps of malt on the nose. Stone fruits, citrus, light caramel malt. Prominent but gentle hops. [3.7]

Bottle. Clear amber light beige head that fades to a coat. Grapefruit, kumquat, a little pine, caramel aroma. Stone fruit and light caramel under citrus and pine. Bitter finish is there but less pronounced than the initial aromatics.

Clear, good looking, amber body although a poor head. I notice caramel more in the aroma than the promised hops. Taste is a little better but not a lot of body or big on flavours, an american pale ale but not one of my favourites.

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!
