Great Copper to amber colour with beige head. Looks and smells enticing. Sweet citrus cascade hop aromas really spicey and delicious mmmmmmmm. Some caramel and coffee at the start then the citrus hops then a well rounded bitterness. All works well together and crafted extremely well. A top effort.

Surprising crisp taste, goes well with a medium rare rump steak. Flavours of citrus and hops ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

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 (497) - 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.

monoroc (49) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - OCT 7, 2014
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.
