I took of the top and poured away. It may have been my mind playing tricks, but this appeared almost green in the glass with no head to speak of and a faint haziness. Ah well, thinks I, lets have a snort. My nose isn’t insubstantial and can usually detect a good raft of aromas. From this I got a dollop of gooseberry, unripe greengages grapefruit and other aromas that suggest either this beer is a little young or a little bit... well... anyway. The first taste made me think I was going to regret paying for this. It was just a bit rubbish if I’m fair. I got that green fruit and a flavour of chewing on leather and leaves. Mercifully, this subsided after a few more mouthfuls and it became a much more pleasant session pale ale. However, I would point out that I would drink it again if it was put in front of me, but I will not be paying for the pleasure thank you.
I'm new to Australia and was recently introduced to this beer. Really enjoy the taste and it's quite good for an every day beer. Find myself buying this more than anything else.

A very credible attempt to draw the lager drinker to something more crafty without producing a super dull beer

On tap. Pours a clear straw gold with thin white he’s. Aroma: Mild citrus, pine, grass and tropical notes. Not aromatic. Taste: Biscuity malt, citrus and pine notes. Easy to drink but not particularly tasty. Moderate carbonation. Mild bitterness that lingers. A refreshing and easy to drink beer but not amazing. northropfrye (3654) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 4, 2017
Saw this at a bao place. Then saw it advertised all over town. Oops. Bad sign. Basically tastes like a watered down not very hoppy APA. Just the faintest taste of hops. jann3 (395) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUN 19, 2017
Pours slightly hazy yellow with a smallish head. Sweetish and fruity aroma. Taste is rather similar. Light and fruity sweetness but some crispy citrus and pine flavours too. Slightly watery overall impression. (373ml bottle, from a random liquor store in Sydney) craftyrocker (53) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 7, 2017
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2017 Score: 3/2/4/1/8. 330mL can from Dan Murphy’s, BB Dec 2017. $13 for 10 cans on a rare special. Also previously had many jugs of this on tap.
Appearance: Like a yellow fizzy lager that cannot maintain a head after pouring. Some lacing.
Aroma: Light citrus and malt. Not much going on.
Taste: Tiny citrus hops. Mostly sweet breadish malt. No passionfruit that the label advertises. The 4.2% is is masked and feels more like 2%.
Palate: Watery thin body. Overcarbonation.
Overall: Basic industrial tasting macro beer. It would not help convert any macro drinkers to craft beer. Best with savoury food that’s slightly sweet. The can is 15mL smaller than the bottle. Have some bread instead. jmgreenuk (9703) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAY 23, 2017
Tap at the Crafty Squire, Russell St Melbourne. Poured a hazy straw colour with a thin white head and some broken lace. The aroma is malt light woody hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a light crisp grainy malt light fruit hop bitter palate. Medium to light bodied with average carbonation.
