3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma: suprising amount of crystal and other biscuity malt aromas well balanced by fruit and hop. Appearance: orang with an attractive haze with a lasting white head. Flavour: generous bready malt with a great balance of passionfruit. Palate: nice and thick with lasting sweet malt and clean hop. Overall I was very suprised how good this is.

Brown-orange with chill haze, low carb and thin white head that sticks. Smell is fresh bread and tropical fruit and vanilla. Warm and full english malt flavour and tangy us and nz hops, passionfruit jam spread on brown bread. Good bitterness balanced all the way with malt body. Big flavours balanced well, a good aussie compromise between english and american styles.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2009 Poured hazy amber tending copper. Substantial off white head that dissapates quite quickly. Aromas are really appealing! Sweet malt present with apricot and some citrus fruit. Palate shows more of the same, sweet confectionary-like apricot and grapefruit but thats about it. Finishes short, without any substantial bitterness to balance the sweetness. With a bit of tinkering this could be a cracker!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Almost clear, honey/amber body with a compact but lasting head. Hops on the nose upfront that carries through to the taste without overpowering. Good beer but not always my favourite style.

Aroma of mild american hops, poured a rather hazy deep amber, excellent malty mouthfeel, with a refreshing crips finish. One of the best Aussie APA’s I have tasted.
