This was another one of the beers that started me on a path to the craft beer market. It has nice subtle tropical fruit aroma and flavour and a ok malt backing. Overall not a great beer but good for those new to beer.

Obviously it pours golden - big white head on top. Not too shabby on the nose. Appealing fruits and honey/caramel malts. Quite malty in the taste with a hint of honey and light fruits. A big hit at the pub although it is a very filling beer

A decent beer, as you’d expect from the Squire brand. It’s a clean and crisp affair, packed with hops, malt and the promised (on the label) tropical fruity aromas. Rather nice.

Westmeister (2129) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 3, 2011
Draft. Poured a golden orange/yellow with a decent white head and excepional lacing throughout. Smell was of light citrus hops and a good malt backing. The taste was well rounded with a very hop forward (yet subdued) hop profile. This was a very balanced brew. In comparison to the other Australian macros, this one is the best of the bunch. Very sessionable and very refreshing.

Jessop (207) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 5, 2011
Golden with loosly packed white foam, light toasty aroma with tropical fruit and citrus accents. Full flavoured ale and fruity on the palate with light sweetness.

Hands-down the best beer (in my opinion) you can get down under. Plus, Qantas serves it for free after 4pm.

JamieFerdinand (163) - Hove, East Sussex, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2011
Bottle - 15/1/11. Golden coloured. Barley and dry grass in the nose. Quite sweet tasting with perhaps a hint of honey. OK beer but not brilliant.

2.9
bozoNZ (778) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 5, 2010
Clean, crisp. A little bit of hop, a little bit of malt - pretty easy going offering really.

3.3
SeanMacGC (334) - Dublin, IRELAND - NOV 1, 2010
Can first, then a bottle: pours as it promises on the label (golden!), with a decently persistent white head. Fruity on the nose and palate, with light caramel notes. Decent ale.

WestSydneyBoy (23) - South Penrith, AUSTRALIA - AUG 23, 2010
pours golden with a white head (no surprise there), taste is sweet malt with some fruity hop presence, sweet fruity aroma. overall a nice beer on tap, a step up from the standard aussie lager.
