Maris (989) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JUL 26, 2014
From a 330ml bottle on 26/7/2014. Pours a clear deep olden with a small white head. Has a light grassy, fruity yeasty aroma. Take a sip and you get a light fruity sweetness, some bready malt, followed by a quite firm, spicy, lingering hop bitterness. Has a medium body and lively carbonation. Very flavoursome for 4.4%. A pretty good, quite assertive little beer.

Dervock (497) - Emu plains, AUSTRALIA - JUL 19, 2014
bottle - pouts hazy gold with a small head. Pineapple, peach and elderflower aroma. Taste just doesnt happen for me, very bland up front before a hoppy dry finish, which is quite short lived. Palate is also a bit on the watery side. Bottle is slightly past its BB date could be it?

Bottle from mane liquor. Nice golden pour. Nose has apricot nectar and toffee notes with a touch of citrus. Taste is super clean - chewy apricot and sweet toffee malts. Slight over carbonation. Drinks pretty well. Solid session ale ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maneliquor (3103) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 7, 2014
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours clear golden with a thick white head. Nose is full of deep toffee and apricot. Very sticky sweet. The taste mirrors this. The toffee is very forward with mild stone fruit and earthiness. Drinks ok but lacking any pizzaz

In the past I’ve been guilty of passing of golden ale as a boring flavorless style for the masses to drink while watching the footy. This beer has changed my perceptions. It manages to be simultaneously quaffable and complex. There’s a delicious fruitiness, some toffee caramel, and a surprisingly sharp intense citrus bitterness towards the end. It’s not like an IPA bitterness though, it’s more subtle that. It’s tingly on the palate too. Extremely enjoyable.
