330ml bottle. Pale amber / copper colour with an aggressive, whispy off white head which quickly subsided. On the second pour the head became denser and lasted well before reducing to a disc and left some very nice lace. Yeast lurking at the bottom of the bottle. Citrus hop aroma, with tropical fruit punch and a hint of pine resin. Light sweetness and light to medium bitterness. Medium body; smooth, creamy texture; average carbonation and lingering, chewy, bitterness in the finish. Not bad.

330ml bottle into glass. Caramel malt nose. Copper beer with thin off-white head. Flat and bitter in the mouth. Creamy bittersweet finish. Good, moreish. Perhaps too sweet and too brown for a pale ale but who cares?

Bloke (18) - Wei Hai, CHINA - FEB 17, 2015
On a recent trip to Australia I went through about 15 new beers, mostly Pale Ales, and this was my highest ranked Pale Ale. Hoppier than a lot of others but not as strong as an IPA so smoother on the palate and could easily knock a few down. well worth a try

Shark_Pants (470) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 15, 2015
Sunset orange colour with a few flecks of sediment and a large 3 finger rocky tan head that hangs around. Very floral and fruity aromas - perfume roses, tangerine, a little papaya and passionfruit - very inviting indeed. Fortunately, the taste isn?t too bad either. Reasonably sweet, with the tangerine, a little passionfruit, a bit of lightly toasted white bread and finishes with marmalade and then a light dryness. The light body helps make it easily drinkable and quite refreshing. Very good pale ale.

Pours amber to brown color with a medium head. Nice citrusy, hoppy, malty aroma. Strong malty body, tasting caramel, orange with a nice hoppy but not too bitter finish. Carbonation could be just a little bit stronger. All in all, very nice pale ale!

Danev76 (505) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 27, 2014
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!
