COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
American Ales vary from light colour to coppery. This beer leans more towards the malt with a big passionfruit hit up front followed by firm malt backbone and sweetness off set by solid bitterness. The bitterness is average for style. Voted number 12 in the Aussie Craft Beer top 100, 2012. Bronze Medal at the QLD Good Food and Wine Beer Awards 2012.

Cloudy pale amber no nose yet, think chill factor may be involved, rich and complicated, each sip is layered with hops, floral as your Gran’s neck, contrasted with nibbles of rocket and dandelion. The sweetness comes from unripe rockmelon skin, or pomelo making it well balanced, easy to stay with.

TedE (1326) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 23, 2017
Pint on tap at brewery. Faint malt nose.Golden amber beer with thin film on top. Good lacing. Nice hoppy bitterness, touches of lemon. Finish is more intense bitterness. More English than American. Nice malt background. Pretty good.

On tap at Pumpyard Bar & Brewery. A very tasty beer, the passion fruit hops flavours give it a summer vibe, will drink again.

KeefOz (1838) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - AUG 12, 2015
Draught at Pumpyard Bar & brewery, Ipswich. Poured a honey amber colour with a one-finger white foamy head that diminished to a collar that laced OK. Carbonation extremely low and fine. Aroma subtly of toffee and caramel plus a very subtle citrus note. Tastes semi-sweet with a moderate grapefruit bitterness. Light body. Crisp, smooth and slightly dry. Quite easy to drink.

Bottle from Beer Cartel (April 2014). Slightly hazy pale amber, 2cm white head, piney, lemon aroma, some sweet grainy malt, moderate bitterness, medium body, easy drinking. Nice.

varanid99 (1204) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 17, 2014
Pale gold pour with a decent head. A little citrus and malt on the nose, some pine. Taste - fairly neutral, malty, a little bit of citrus, a little pine. Fairly easy drinking beer, not bad.

3.3
mattyhennessy (376) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - JUL 14, 2014
Pours a cloudy pale amber with a white head. Medium carbonation. Aromas mostly of pine and lemon, indicating a light flavour. Not a large malt presence in the aroma. Glassy and piney flavours dominate the flavours, without a heavy malt profile to match. That makes this am easy session beer, great for hot weather.

hawthorne00 (3942) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 21, 2014
Bottle, 4C. Pale amber with an inch of white head. Aroma is crackery with weeds, some pine, dark berries. Light bodied. Grainy with some berries, weedy bitterness. The sort of Australian beer you can really get a taste for when the weather warms up.

3.2
Jado (798) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - AUG 31, 2013
Pint on tap. Arrived with a bronze-amber body topped by a tight thin white head and lively carbonation. The aromas were fairly light but lemon and pine were evident along with a little fresh apple. The taste was dominated by the piney hops, with some lemon pith bitterness and sweetish malt characters creeping in also. Finishes quite cleanly with a light fruity aftertaste. A little unbalanced, but not bad.
