Jado (796) - Camp Hill, - NOV 10, 2012
On tap. Poured a deep amber-brown with a small but lasting white head that left some lacing. The aroma is dominated by tropical fruits, notably passionfruit, with a little pine note coming through as well. Taste is initially fruity, but soon the caramel malt takes over, leaving a fairly thick taste in the mouth. Not my favourite pale ale, but a lot better than a standard lager.

UPDATED: NOV 26, 2016 A nice American style pale ale with mild malty citris, light pine flavour combination. Subtle mix. Toffee and chaff aroma. Earthy tones. Sometimes a thin soapy texture, however still very pleasant. A well balanced beer. Didnt buy the nostalgic 70s surf marketing thing though. Would happily drink again. Update: new label. Same great beer. Upgraded score.

Restrained citrus pine aroma in an amber pour. Hop malt balance is pretty much textbook - as is the sustained mild bitter finish.

mcberko (16033) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 12, 2016
On tap at Burleigh Brewing, pours a clear copper golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out gentle piney hops and biscuity malt. Flavour is balanced, with biscuity malt and light piney hops. Dry and fairly restrained. Its alright.

Pours a clear golden colour with an off-white head. Aroma is malt, fruit, citrus and hops. Taste is light to medium sweet leading to a moderate hoppy finish.

Fruity aromas with an appearance typical of a pale ale. light bodied with a fluffy head. Citrus fruit flavours makes for an overall enjoyable beer.

Good local brew. Golden colour, white foam. Quite a strong fruity flavour. Excellent Aussie version of an American pale ale.

DylansDad (617) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 15, 2015
I was 5 years old in the summer of 1974. The Commonwealth games were playing on the black and white TV inside and I was outside in the tyre swing hanging from a plum tree. The late afternoon sun in the hot, dry summer of the northern Wairarapa was a beautiful gold and I was thinking about how cool it would be to do a pole vault. When I went inside my dad was cleaning his gun and watching the track events and Mum was putting some meat through the mincer. Mum gave me a bone to gnaw the left-over gristle off and Dad gave me a few fingers of beer in a glass to wash it down with. I swear it was THIS beer. It smelled of a clean simple biscuity malt, slightly dusty in the heat, noble-ish hops and the faintest tinge of green apples at the back. The afternoon became even more golden.

Morboso (146) - AUSTRALIA - APR 19, 2015
THis is a fruity-citrus beer that is consistent and balanced from aroma to finish. I admire the consistency, this makes it solid. Not really my style but something a little different from the ordinary.

TedE (1143) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 24, 2015
330ml into schooner glass. Great nose, freshly mowed grass and pepper. Amber beer with thin white head, bubbles on side of glass. Bitter, thin and flat in the mouth. Finish is creamy with more hop bitterness. Looks a lot like XXXX but tastes much better. Interesting, sessionable.

Pyobon (1366) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 15, 2015
(Bottle) Clear amber with small transient off white head. Nice aroma - citrus with pine hints. Light body modest carbonation. Sweet and fruity start develops some reasonable bitterness in the finish. Very drinkable.
