Clear golden with white fluffy head. Distinct amarillo hop flavours: butter, honey, citrus. Flavour is much the same. Palate is light. easy drinking, well balanced. Good natural fresh beer rmussman (1701) - California, USA - JUL 18, 2008
Sampled in Adelaide. Quite nice. Well crafted with nice malts. One of the betters found here. Pyobon (1391) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 21, 2008
Can (on Qantas flight). Poured clear golden amber with some beige head. Decent aroma of hops (but from a can in a plastic cup on a plane so hard to tell). Thin palate with light carbonation. Nice balance of flowery hops and sweetish malt with some fruity hints. For a canned beer on a plane this was very welcome. Must try the bottle or draught.

Bottle (345ml). Poured a golden orange with a tight, creamy head which was mostly lasting. Aroma was of sweet malts, honey, orange citrus and light notes of caramel. Flavor was a light grassy hop bitterness with some honey, sweet malts and marmalade. Light to medium bodied with lively carbonation, slight creamy/dry mouthfeel and a decent finish. Muggus69 (2431) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - OCT 8, 2007
Chilled 345ml bottle. Zesty citrus hops on the nose, subtle hint of passionfruit, pineapple and grass, some grainy maltiness. Pours a clean orange-gold body with decent white foam and lace. Moderate carbonation, reasonably full bodied, slight drying on the palate. Decent amount of grassy citrus and passionfruit hop flavour, has a slightly sweet juiciness to it, only a hint of cereal-like malt in the background. Mild but slightly metallic bitter note towards a drying finish. A reasonably well made and balanced pale ale, could definately go a few in an evening. Thylacine (526) - Tasmania, AUSTRALIA - JUN 25, 2007
A clear orangy gold beer with a creamy, off white head, which soon diminished. Light to medium body and medium carbonation. Aroma of orange and apricots (from the amarillo hops). Rather sweet and fruity with only a very mild bitterness in the finish and a fruity aftertaste. . All up an enjoyable and refreshing beer. Rizzo (13) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 2, 2007
Speculator light. Amarillo hops dominate but nowhere near as intense or bitter as it’s big brother. Can be a little too cloying for a session thought. DarkFaerytale (21) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 21, 2007
bottle - beautifull looking beer, clear orange, nice white head that lasted about half way down the glass (schooner) aroma is sweet citrus flavour balances nicely with the bitterness. a great beer to have with friends over a nice chicken salad
