Not a bad beer, but nothing on a good english ale. On early whiffs I couldn’t quite decide if it was more pasteurised English ale or dodgy Australian lager. Thankfully it tended toward the English after the head receded. A bit too much of the boiled lollies smell, but it had a pleasant enough fruitiness. Flavour is a little bland. Reasonable enough, but underwhelming
Mid amber on the pour with a slightly off white head
Slight caramel toffee on the nose with a feint hint of dry grains an hops
Sweet on the tongue with a little malt and hops coming through and a fairly clean finish
An easy drinking EPA with perhaps not as large a character a the name of the beer suggests. However it is a commercial beer. Not a bad try JB hawthorne00 (3992) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 17, 2016
Bottle. Clear pale amber with a white head. 3+ Promising aroma is fruity and floral with bread crusts and a hint of roasted malt. Light bodied, highish carbonation. More caramel than bread crust in the taste unfortunately, but it?s not all that sweet and there?s fruity and roasted touches before a slightly harsh bitter finish. Pretty decent beer.
