Bathory (458) - Kverneland, NORWAY - DEC 25, 2013
Pours a coppery colour with a small, short lived white head. The aroma is mostly grass, pine and some citric notes. The smell is a bit weak. Taste is pine, citrus and some toffee. Aftertaste has an avarage bitterness for the style. Light body, maybe a bit watery. Avarage carbonation. A really avarage pale ale imo.

22415brewery (379) - Washington, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Pours a medium amber, slight reddish overtones, minimal head that leaves a decent lacing. Faint aromas of light pine, citrus, grapefruit pith, and slightly sweet caramel. The malt is clean, some light caramel sweetness, but primarily balanced with a firm bitterness. Yeast esters are kept in check and this beer is fairly clean. The hops unfortunately do not push well through the flavor, but do provide a smooth and clean bitterness. Probably one of the better examples of the APA style from Australia.

Tinted amber colour with an off-white head which unfortunately didnt linger as long as Id have liked. Your nose is hit with a rush of fruity smells, most notably grapfruit which unfortunately overpowers the pines and lychee that the bottle itself advertises. Tangy, grapfruity taste with a surprisingly bitter aftertaste. Nice and refreshing on a hot summers day!!

Fruity aroma, clean crisp taste with a mild hint of hops. A great beer for an arvo session.

Competent ale, sessionable and quite enjoyable, without being overly impressive. Not quite good enough to stand out from the crowd of quality pale ales on the market today, but certainly a long way from the mediocre end of the pack. Would drink again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Amber pour with an off white head. Strong citrus fruit aromas. Most prominent flavour is the grapefruit that supersedes some pine and lychee. Excellent use of finishing hops to mask the malty flavour that overpowers some pale ales. High carbonation. A nice choice.

I found this to be quite an unimaginative generic pale ale. Dont bother if you have a choice.

Amber, slightly hazy. Thin head. Earthy, citrusy, lots of wood. Mod bitterness but quite a bit of hop character.

Vanz (189) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 11, 2013
Deep clear amber coloured pale ale with a thin head. Quite a weak aroma, mostly pine but fairly indiscernible. Taste is quite malty for an APA, mostly pine, very dull grapefruit, hints of yeast & clove as well which is interesting and different. A slight soapy mouthfeel with a lingering bitter aftertaste. A different APA in the Australian market, not your average Galaxy Dry Hopped APA, not my favourite though.
