Bottle. Pours a clear light orange-amber color with 1 inch head that fades fast but leaves nice lacing. Aroma is pine/spruce, yeast. Taste is piney/sprucy, fruity, citrus, some cereal qualities. Texture is thin and soapy. Light to moderate bitterness. This is a good session beer but a bit on the fruity side.

On tap, schooner. Pours a pale straw gold with a thin white head. Aroma: Biscuity malt, mild citrus, pine notes. Taste: Citrus and biscuity malt flavours dominate the flavour balance. Not complex. A basic easy drinking beer. Moderate carbonation. Mild bitterness. All in all, a decent beer.

Tap at the Crafty Squire, Russell St Melbourne. Poured a clear medium amber with a thin white head and some broken lace. The aroma is caramel malt, light hop bitter. The flavour is moderate bitter light sweet with a grainy malt light fruit, light floral hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

Mild aroma of grass and sweet stone fruit. Mild taste of citrus and pine notes as well as little bit of apricot. The finish is more lager than ale. I quite like this one.

Gyllengul till bärnstensfärgad öl med vitt skum. Doft av säd, jäst och lättare malttoner. Lättare gräsig beska tillkommer i smaken.

An easy drinking ale, nothing to crazy. Kind of boring but smooth and easy to put back.

On tap at Charming Squire, Brisbane on 7th September 2015. Gold with off-white, lasting foam top and lacing. Fine citrus aroma. Grapefruit in-mouth with soapy touch. Citric, floral and slightly soapy finish. Zingy mouthfeel and light body. Pleasant.
