2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not a bad beer but wouldn’t get it again. It’s not really my type of thing even though I like most Holgate beers.
Bitter citrus fruits, lemon peel, wet straw, grass. Slightly hazy gold, small, creamy, white head. Light bitter. More grain and cereal malts, bitter, wet straw, grass, lemon peel, medium carbonation, medium bodied. Alright. Bottle at Grain Store, Melbourne. KeefOz (1953) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - OCT 29, 2017
Bottled 06/03/17. Poured a clear golden amber with a huge off-white foamy head that retained very well but laced poorly. Carbonation high, lively and fine to medium. Aroma nicely of soft sweet citrus (orange, hints of grapefruit) and caramel malt. Taste of citrus (sweet orange, hints of grapefruit) moderate bitterness. Light body. Smooth, slightly dry, light, crisp, clean, refreshing with moderate bitterness on a short finish. CurlyJoe (385) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 23, 2017
Hazy golden with generous fluffy head. Aroma is a little piney, lots of citrus with maybe even some mango. Quite a clean bitter taste, not as hop driven as aroma led me to believe, not all that ’pale’. Biscuit malt tastes too. Very pleasant and refreshing, can’t imagine it would offend anyone. Easy drinking. danjs5 (357) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 11, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 11, 2016 Grassy fruity aroma and deep gold colour. Crisp, light, bubbly and clean feel. Light hops and bitterness balance. Subtle sweetness. Quite reasonable. kyzr (1607) - Montana, USA - SEP 21, 2016
Dark gold pour with big white head. Nose of caramel and hints of citrus. Flavor is toast with a lot of malt and touch of orange zest. Bitter finish with just a hint of sweetness.

Restrained grassy aroma in a golden pour. Hop malt balance is laid back and perfect for the style. As is the crisp clean finish. A very tasty brew in the end. Pyobon (1531) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 13, 2016
(Bottle) Pours hazy golden amber with small loose white head. Pleasant aroma - citrus, pine, hints of grass, biscuits and cardboard. Light body with rather fizzy carbonation. Taste is light on malt and heavy on hops giving some imbalance. Starts with tart citrus notes with the slightest biscuity malt, becomes a little watery in the mid-palate and then some good hoppy bitterness develops in the finish. Pleasant enough but rather unbalanced.
Seems to have had a name change to Mt. Macedon Pale Ale. jonas (8281) - Garching close to the monks, GERMANY - FEB 17, 2016
