beer-yum (1653) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 31, 2016
Citrus aroma in a gold pour. Balanced brew with hop forward start, tart body, and clean finish. Not bad, but nothing to write home about either. ofey (68) - Doncaster, AUSTRALIA - SEP 1, 2011
Poured dull blonde out of the bottle.
For an IPA, this wasn’t very hoppy and a very refreshing drink. Maris (1498) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - SEP 7, 2011
From a 345 ml bottle on 7/9/2011. Bottle says the ABV is 4.2%, not 4.7%. Pours a very light, slightly cloudy golden with a smallish head. Has only a slight aroma of grain and the tiniest hint of fruit. The flavour is also reasonably subdued, but definitely an improvement on the aroma. It’s moderately sweet and fruity with some honey notes. Finishes off with a modest bitterness. Fairly typical of the Squire’s range - decent and drinkable, but a long way from exciting. Would be a good candidate for a session. Westkyoto77 (635) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 28, 2013
On tap. Cloudy golden in the pint glass. Faint hops and malt, but not as nicely balanced as other pale ales. Average looking, average tasting. Nothing really stood out about this beer for me. Smooth finish. Not terrible, but not something I would go out and buy either. davidfoley (20) - New York, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Appearance - Golden straw colour, light carbonation, low head retention, good clarity
Smell - Light Malt, Banana, Kiwi, mandarin.. Overall fruity, not a strong aroma
Taste - Light carbonation, light hops, malt sweetness, mild fruit flavours. Little after-taste
Mouthfeel - low/medium weight with light carbonation.
Drinkability - Light beer of which you could drink a few, needs more carbonation to make it more drinkable. A drink to guzzle on a hot day
Overall - Not a bad beer, but generally bland and uninspiring
Printed on the side of the bottle :
A clean finishing, Australian-style cloudy pale ale for cracking refreshment. Malted what adds to it’s refreshing character and a concoction of hops creates fruity aromas with hints of passion fruit, grapefruit & citrus

Cloudy golden in colour. Citrus aromas on the nose. Hints of malt and wheat in flavour. Slight hop bitterness on the finish. Oakes (17274) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 9, 2013
Hazy blonde, frothy head. Not much aroma, maybe a little pale malt. A little crispness, mellow pale malts. Balanced but really mellow. drpimento (3572) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 21, 2014
Geez, what a drag: I just had this on draft at the hotel where I’m staying and it was so much better then - just like a good real, pale ale should tast like. But this poured at a good temperature with a modest head, that soon faded and a bit o lace. Color is a clear amber with some tiny bubble trails. Aroma is skunk malt and not much else. Flavor is very mild- hops are almost gone, some malt and tang, not much else. Bit of bittersweet. Body/carbonation are decent. Finish is like flavor, some mild medicinal flavs. jonas (7549) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - OCT 23, 2015
Tap. Cloudy yellow, white lace. Light hayish malt, restrained but pleasant aromatic hops. Good quencher. Borup (14332) - Albertslund, DENMARK - MAR 27, 2016
Bottle at Banksia. Clear golden colour with a white head. Aroma and flavour of hops, corn, straw, malt, citrus fruit and with a light bitter finish.
