tried this one just after the Gippsland Gold and it was slightly better. I didnt like the flavour however it reminded me of a dried out off fruitcake. winkle (478) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JAN 9, 2004
Large sightly off-white coloured head, deep gold colour, zero sediment in bottle. Aroma was largely of sweet caramel malt and honey. Flavour dominated by sweet caramel malt, biscuity, seems lacking in hops but it could be a dodgy bottle judging from the other ratings. A bit unbalanced but still pretty nice. mullet (849) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 8, 2003
I never realised before but now I am pretty sure that this is exactly the same beer as Gippsland Gold. Why they would bother I have no idea. Toffee, caramel malt aroma. Solid maltiness, then late bitterness. See notes for Gippsland Gold. Choos (754) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - DEC 4, 2003
Aroma and flavour matched for me both reminding me of scotch finger biscuits similar to the Gippsland Gold only with a touch of fruit and more floral aroma. Finishes dry. bluevegie (3073) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 25, 2003
I am really starting to enjoy pale ales unfortunately this isn't one of them, not saying its bad it just didn't do anything for me.

Pours amber with orange sides, slightly hazy. Short lasted small beige head. Crap all lacing too. Nice aroma of sweet malt and floral citrusy hops. Nice medium body, smooth start though slightly thin finish. Sweet hoppy start and mid with a dry bitter finish. Very refreshing and drinkable.

Interesting dark orange huewith a faint hint of hop. A slight tartness i taste ad bitter and dry on the back palate. After you let the beer linger on the tongue it becomes more bitter, asking you to take another sip. You oblige, its dry and asks you to take ......Another good effort from the boys from Mirboo. daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 5, 2003
Cloudy dark orange color. Tart, dusty aroma. Hints of citrus and a touch of light chocolate as well. Body is tart and lightly bitter with a lingering citrusiness. Could be gone, but there are other ratings here that suggest a tartness. LoveABeer (141) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 27, 2003
Another excellent brew from Grand Ridge. Light Brown in color, with medium size lasting head. Taste of floral and fruitiness, with subtle spices (cloves perhaps?). Easy on the palate, enjoyable! maestro (36) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 25, 2003
One of the better and smoother from this brewer. These guys do some really interesting stuff but they have a passion for a most unusual yeast strain that flavours all these beers. If you like it, you'll like all there stuff. Not bad, not great, drinkable but I wouldn't drive to find it.
