3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2009 Taster at the Balmoral Brewhaha. A sharp, clean northwestern hop hit made me peg this as a Pale Ale. But no, I see it down as a Blond. Very close, either way. The malt base is a little light, and plays well of the featured hops. Regrettably, our taster cups were solid black, so I couldn’t tell you much about how it looks, except for a nice skimmer of foam on top. But it’s very nice on a warm, humid summer’s evening and lets me prepare for the more off-kilter beers at this event.
Pours a very pretty honey golden color. A little darker than most pales. About one finger bone colored head. Good lacing, okay retention.mabuzzer (909) - Hamilton, SCOTLAND - AUG 3, 2016
Aroma is very biscuity. Honey. Some tropical fruit. Caramel. Mild hops. There’s a lot going on here.
Taste is honey and malt. It’s mostly sweet. Some bitter hops, but they don’t linger. Otherwise taste mostly follows the nose. Smooth, maybe even creamy.
Mouthfeel is medium light bodied. It’s quite dry. Only slightly bitter, slightly metallic. But it has a strange mineral aftertaste.
Overall, it’s okay. I’m not sure which style it’s going for.. Seems like it’s confused. Eh, I don’t think I’d buy it again, and I wouldn’t recommend it.
355ml bottle, as Restoration Pale Ale. Hazy amber colour with a lively white head. Aroma of citrus and biscuit, flavour is caramel, citrus, biscuit. Ok Kurtos (222) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 5, 2016
Bottle. Pours a Golden Colours.
Aroma. Citrus and Cereal Grains.
Taste. Similar to Marketing description, with just a touch of caramel.
Overall. Quite a nice beer and easily sessionable at 5%. E_leap (13) - Wollongong, AUSTRALIA - JUL 4, 2016
330ml bottle, pours hazy golden colour, candied citrus aroma, and very very overwhelming taste of burnt orange skin, very disappointing beer,i’m actually trying to convince my self to finish it because it isn’t good at all !!
Good try though!! eaglepark (8) - Crestview, Florida, USA - JUN 22, 2016 does not count
Nice golden color -- after that it was a standard pale ale that fades into the woodwork...unmemorable.

Tap at brewery. Pours hazy pale orange with white head. Aroma of citrus, malt and tropical fruit. Taste of orange citrus with bitter finish. Slightly bitter. Not that great. weordie (1397) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2016
Pours clear golden with a foamy head. The aroma is a lush honey/malt. A sweet honey, malt flavour with just a hint of a bitter finish. I really like that but couldn’t drink lots. TedE (1478) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 2, 2016
355ml bottle into glass. BIG malt whack on the nose. Hazy golden beer with solid white head. Flat watery mouthfeel. There’s a subdued hoppiness about, then a grainy bitter finish. A bit lame. Inconsequential.
