330ml bottle. Coppery teak colour with a full caramel coloured foam crown. Sweet aromas of caramel, hops and malt. Smooth on the palate and very easy to drink as it is hoppy and mildly bitter. O good effort and I look forward to trying the rest of the range from Lobethal. hawthorne00 (4036) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 18, 2010
Tap. Quite a dark amber for the style with a small beige head. Aroma of nectarines, caramel, pine and kumquats. Creamy texture with a little too much fizz. Taste has some sweetish caramel with touches of stone fruits followed by a firm bitter finish. Good sessionable beer that’s not polished but is balanced. maneliquor (3514) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 2, 2013
No out of the ordinary pale ale but well rounded and balanced and easy going. Solid quaffer

Pours ruby with a nice head that quickly fades to a layer.
Aroma shows loads of juicy, fruity hops with some piney resin as well. A fair bit of clean malt is present.
Lots of caramelised and almost toasty malt flavours show through, but seem almost harsh. Quite prominent bitterness, though the malt still overshadows.
Carbonation is too high. bluevegie (3073) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 1, 2009
Clear reddy amber body with no head. Mainly light caramel showing in both aroma and taste. Not too sure about this beer need to try it again sometime.

330ml bottle, Bottled April 2008. First thing I notice about this badboy is the colour of the body! Deep amber with a creamy off-white head...is this an American-style Amber ale? My suspicions are only confirmed when I take a whiff; big ripe stonefruits peach/nectarine, rich crystal malts toffee, caramel, mild roastiness, some grass in the background. Mouthfeel is fantastic, creamy moderate carbonation, excellent balance of malt sweetness and hop sharpness, lingering for a good while. Big hop character on the body, of the likes are very uncommon in Aussie APA clones; pine, lemon zest, peach pip, with a grainy crystal toffee sweetness standing up to the tyraid. Finishes the slightest bit astrigent with a bold bitterness and lingering hop tang. Fantastic! Very similiar to homebrewed American Amber ales i’ve tried. As far as large scale Aussie-made APA’s go, this could well give Little Creatures a run for its money! davidm (2081) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 5, 2011
Bottle 330ml. Great beer. Aromas of caramel, cherries, and pine. Taste starts sweet, with bitterness gently taking over. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Dark amber, with a frothy head. Stew41 (2062) - Phuket, THAILAND - JAN 19, 2010
Solid beer. Works the style well, particularly on the nose with great cut of hops and mildly caramalised malts. Slightly more aggressive to taste as some IPA-like metallic flavours come through. Quite fizzy, perhaps to a mild fault. Maris (1557) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - AUG 12, 2011
From a 330ml bottle on 12/8/2011 (Batch No PA-15, bottled June 2011). Pours a light amber with little head. Has a strong and pleasant fruity, perfumey aroma. In the mouth, it’s got lots of sweet stone fruit , a dash of biscuity malt, some honey, and a good dose of citrus bitterness at the back. A very nice, well balanced pale. nate2g (1548) - Boomtown!, AUSTRALIA - NOV 15, 2009
Draught at Kings Head Hotel, Adelaide. Dark amber with a small off white head. Nice fruity aroma of lychee and citrus and biscuit malt. The flavour is bursting with juicy hop flavours made up of tropical fruit and a good malt backbone of biscuit malt gives support. Smooth and bitter in the mouthfeel with a noticeable resiny hop presence. An extremely quaffable pale ale.
