Poured from a 500 ml bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a strong malt smell with some spice thrown in.
Appearance- This is a murky orange colored beer with a thick white head.
Taste- Has a dirty malt flavor with a citrus finish. Ok flavor nothing earth shattering.
Palate- A medium bodied brew with medium carbonation
Overall- My first beer from this brewery. It was an average beer with nothing that made me take note of.

Very hazy amber beer, big fluffy white head. Mild sherbet lime on the nose. The head has a light floral lime sherbet nose. Creamy malt supports lovely mild floral lime hops. Finishes smooth. Simple but utterly delicious, Why so many naff rates for this is beyond me!
Classic amber pale ale colour, clear and with a definite greenish-creamy white head that is leaving good lace down the side of the glass. The aroma isn’t nearly like what I was expecting. I was expecting an up-front heady hoppiness but instead got biscuity malt, almost cheesy Belgian ale aroma and very little hop. Odd.
I tasted it and ah, there they are. Sweet at the front with a grassy herbalness and then a return to that sweet malt and candy sugar. The finish offers a little bitterness but is otherwise mediocre. As an APA it is incredibly wide of the mark, but as a stand alone pale ale it would fall into the cheerful quaffer were it not for the highish alcohol content. Just what is this exactly?

500ml bottle. Pours a murky chestnut-brown, with a moderate off-white head, which offers decent retention and reasonable lace. There is not a lot going on so far as aroma is concerned: a light floral fragrance, some sourdough and a peculiar aroma of vintage cheddar, which seems to develop in the glass, and is not altogether very pleasant. It does taste a little better than it smells, but not a whole lot. Grapefruit and pepper hops flavours introduce a body of slightly shrill lemon and very weak caramel, which fades out into a lingering grapefruit finish. This is certainly not the best beer out there, although there is nothing terribly offensive about it, except perhaps for its slightly unpleasant aroma. The thing is, there’s not a whole lot to like about it either - it’s simply very missable. Brenhophead (695) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 22, 2011
Pours a deep amber with a nice head and ok lacing with not much of an aroma (some malt and resin). You can tell when you taste this beer that it is heavily hopped although it would seem the south cross hop doesnt have alot of flavour to it unfortunantly well compared to other hops. There are grassey note with some herb like flavours but altmost no citrus flavour. This hop is reminiscent of Bramling cross in colour/aroma but the flavour is lacking.

Malty with a bitterness in the back palate, this beer pours a golden brown colour with minimal head. Body is quite full with a bit a creaminess to boot. KevBrew (37) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 30, 2011
Amber/brown wispy head, good lacing. Wet cut grass (Silage), clovey spice, caramel, cookie dough. Biter/sweet peppery up front, spacey bitter finish. Enjoyable. grapengrain (124) - Havelock North, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 27, 2011
I like this beer and am a bit surprised by the low score. It not an APA and don’t understand that classification - it is a big rich malty pale ale with clean bitterness and vibrant S/C hop notes. hawthorne00 (3949) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 20, 2011
Bottle. Clear amber with a cream head. Aroma has pears, pine, grapefruit, crackers. Taste has a little grainy sweetness before quite sharp spicy and piney bittterness. Very dry finish. Boozy and not entirely harmonious. mkel07 (5965) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 1, 2011
500ml bottle. Deep copper colour with a good cushion of beige foam. Popcorn and caramel malt aromas are pleasant as is the nutty biscuit flavour. Dry on the palate with good mouthfeel.
