3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale golden colour. Malt aroma with a background of sharp fruit. Malty, smooth flavour with medium low carbonation. A touch of citrus bitterness in the aftertaste. Ok.
Badlands Brewery make some quality ales and this is one to add to the list.

Pours mid gold with a thin head. Body is light and carbonation is refreshing. For a small brewery pale ale, aromas were quite light and flavours were simple. Nicely balanced but a bit plain. jonas (8035) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - OCT 27, 2015
Bottle. Cloudy yellow, low head. Grainy marzipan aroma. Medium light body. Tastes like a mazarin cake, light hop aromatics in the finish. It has a distinctive flavour, that is for sure - I’m just not sure that is what I am looking for in a pale ale - more in a triple maybe. Dervock (1439) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 27, 2015
Bottle - pours gold with lacy White head. Aroma is cereal, nuts and something sweet. Taste is malty with a touch of citrus, finish is moderate not very bitter. Palate is light to medium. Muggus69 (2723) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JUL 3, 2015
330mL bottle from Beer Cartel.
Pours a slightly hazy pale gold body, small white head.
Doesn’t offer a great deal on the nose - toasty malts, slight marmalade-y citrus, earthy hop note.
Medium bodied, some chewiness about it, moderate carbonation.
Opens out a bit more on the body - nice toasty malt, typically earthy, spicy British hops. Relatively low bitterness to finish.
Easy drinking, don’t mind it.

A flat head and an orange glow. Sweet and sticky with a bit of home brew in there. Funky and manky. Jmar33 (210) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 22, 2014
Bottle. English style pale ale’s are not really my thing. Lager like smell and flavour but with just enough hop character to keep me happy enough to finish the bottle Jamison64 (1) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - OCT 28, 2013 does not count
After searching for a beer with abit of flavor I settled on Badlands Pale Ale. I use to drink Coopers Green and altho I like to support local Aussie companies, I became bored with it. This is now my beer of choice. The initial flavor can be alittle unexpected but the after taste is great and the mix of flavors is vibrant. I like to describe the experience akin to drinking a fresh cola compared to flat. At last a beer with full flavor.
I must admit that I’m abit surprised and disappointed by many of the ratings but hell.. no skin off my nose - I love it! And I take it along to parties and friends to see their reaction, not a bad one yet.
I’ve also tried their IPA - bit ruffer but nice, recommend you try a couple of Pale Ales before you start on the Dark Ale but upto you.

Bottle 33 cl from Oak Barrel, Sydney, on July 17, 2013.Swanny6193 (184) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 10, 2013
Clear golden color, big fluffy off-white head. Malty, sweet, grainy scent, a slight bit herbal. Hoppy, sweet, sugary, malty, grainy taste. Weak mouthfeel, medium high dry grainy bitterness.
Alright hops in the taste, little bit of
Malt, too. Bit chemically. Not much in the aroma.
