Light amber pour with OK head.
Not much of an aroma.

This was a revelation a few years ago, now the standard and affordable summer pale ale. Pale amber with even bubbles and head, the taste contains subtle citrus and passion fruit, but not in an overpowering sickly way. Super refreshing.

Thanks to Jan for bringing the bottle from Australia!ChewyBeer (496) - SOUTH AFRICA - MAR 1, 2018
Pours clear golden with a small, foamy, white head; little lacing. The aroma contains barley, bread, rye, citrus, (over)ripe mango, honey or beeswax. It tastes light fruity sweet and light to medium grainy bitter, bready malt and honey in the back. Dry, grainy finish, bit citrussy. Light to medium body, slick texture, fizzy carbonation. Lacking some of the refinement of a 21st century APA, yet quenching.
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2018 Palate: medium light mouthfeel. Low carbonation
Taste: diacetyl, buttered popcorn. Malt background
Overall: ok but am sure there's diacetyl on this bottle Zymurgeist2 (2631) - Redwood City, California, USA - FEB 4, 2018
From a bottle brought back from the Land of Oz. A little syrupy and the hops were restrained, but not so bad compared with the previous reviews.

A pleasant light ale though possibly a little too middle of the road - drinkable but with no overly memorable characteristics

At Manly Wharf , New Zealand on tap at Wharf Bar, pours a hazy gold pour with a small beige head. Very mild citrus nose. Taste is wheaty , grainy and dull without any real kick or flavor. Ends on the grainy dull notes ! Poor excuse for a pale ale. Interesting attended an Aussie who had a pre syncopal episode while drinking this beer .

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2017 Easy drinking pale ale. No notes are over the top. Well balances flavours for a great all day drinking beer ozmerican (3) - - SEP 14, 2017 does not count
I'm new to Australia and was recently introduced to this beer. Really enjoy the taste and it's quite good for an every day beer. Find myself buying this more than anything else.
