On tap White Horse, Parson’s Green. Strangely for a ’bitter’ it looks cloudy dark amber. Appetising. Pine and citrous hops in the nose. Taste is more like a pale ale. Sweet malty flavour giving way to hop bitterness. gam (4078) - brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 4, 2010

330ml bottle. Vibrant golden sunset colour with a rich deep head that looks good when poured. Piney, earthy aroma with notes og grain coming out and a nice mellow flavour that leads into a robust finish. Well balanced and flavoursome. Davros (3282) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 5, 2010
Pours gold with a small head leaving nice lacing.
Nose shows a fair bit of light malt with honey and cookie-dough characters, but is somewhat faint.
Similarly malty flavours but with more of a bready character. Is it just me or are all of Grand Ridge’s beers intensely malty? Not that I’m complaining... Finishes with a well balanced bitterness but is in no way dry.
Moderate body and carbonation - nice, even if not to style.

Tap. Not bad. Aromas of nuts, honey, and biscuit. Taste is sweet, with lingering bitterness. Palate is oily, with a thin-to-medium body. Dark yellow, with a frothy white head. Maris (1585) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - OCT 5, 2013
From a 330ml bottle on 6/10/2013. Pours a slightly cloudy orange golden with a small head. Has a modest aroma featuring fruit and malt. In the mouth this has a lot of typical English bitter to it (should be classed a bitter not a pale lager imo). It’s very malty (bread and toffee), with some fruity notes, and quite a dry, lingering medium bitterness. Has a medium body and carbonation. Pretty solid brew. hawthorne00 (4111) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 8, 2011
Bottle. Slightly hazy light amber with an inch of white head. Aroma has biscuits, pine, honey and some butterscotch. Quite substantial in the mouth with a round fruitiness that’s unusual in an Australian lager. There’s a real house malt profile that works well for the ales but is less obviously suited here and is a little reminiscent of Butter Menthols. Piney bitterness. Robust and refreshing. imaragingbull (579) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 23, 2013
Bottle. Pours hazed near clear yellow straw gold with small light white head and some smallish lace. Aromas of grain, light herbs, some malt sweetness. light medium body, tasty, finishes a touch sweet and puckering. Herbal grainy finish.
