R4N5H (1193) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 25, 2017
On tap at the brewpub, Sydney on 22-Feb-2017. Light pale colour with a thin white head - a little like Dan Quayle maybe? Aroma of grain, pine and fruit. Light body and medium carbonation. Taste of grain, wheat and fruit. Easy to drink, refreshing but just boring. TedE (1332) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 25, 2017
Australia Day Beer #1. 375ml can into shaker, 4.2%. Named after USA VP Dan Quayle, trivia buffs! Clear amber beer with fluffy white head (which disappears) and several large bubbles. Faint hop nose, maybe some grain. Sparkly mouthfeel leads to some malt & bread with a dry sour note at the finish. Ordinary at best. mcberko (17854) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 5, 2016
On tap at Lord Nelson, pours a hazy blonde with a small white head. Aroma and flavour brings out astringent English hops, biscuity malt and some light metallic notes. Light and crisp, with a decent astringency. Decent. hawthorne00 (3955) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 7, 2016
Bottle. Almost clear gold with a puffy white head, Shy aroma of peach bubblegum , wheat crackers, tropical fruit lollies. Sweet with boiled lollies, very light spices, some glue. Just needed _something_ at the end. Oakes (17697) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 6, 2016
Draught at the brewpub. For some reason I thought they had handpumps here - did that change? Golden and a bit hazy. Has a mellow hop character with a light bitterness, a light malt with a bit of toastiness.

(Bottle - says 4.4% ABV and 18 IBU). Slightly hazy golden yellow with good small white head. Subtle pleasant aroma with notes of bread, grass, pepper. Surprising palate - soft and creamy. Taste is similar to aroma - bread, some peppery spice but with some fruity, mainly citrus notes, in the background. The peppery spice remains into a reasonably bitter finish. Very drinkable. jonas (7588) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - NOV 21, 2015
Pale milky yellow, white head.
Mealy, papery base, light catty, restrained bitterness.
Light bodied, dry mellow.
Not super exiting. samsmith33 (772) - - NOV 16, 2015
Found notes from my 2009 trip to Australia. This one was on tap at the Lord Nelson pub in Sydney. Great place. Quayle was wheat, grassy. A little pasty, but good. gnoff (10506) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - AUG 19, 2013

Draught half pint at the brewpub on July 12, 2013.

Hazy honey yellow color, white head. Sweet, herbal taste. Medium but high co2 mouthfeel, medium bitterness. Herbal aftertaste. Faint, malty, herbal scent.
Draught as part of a tasting paddle at Lord Nelson on October 9, 2015.
Hazy pale straw yellow color, white head. Herbal hoppy, light bitter, malty taste. Light mouthfeel, medium light bitterness. Malty, herbal aftertaste. Herbal, light leafy scent.
Bit weary of this bottle I picked up. Best after December of last year, hmmm.
So, into a snifter it went, just on cool, and I don’t think it could have been in finer form. Looks good. Towering, sticky snow-white crown atop very cloudy, honey gold body with well-conditioned, fine carbonation. Grassy and sweet, candied fruit aroma (strawberry, pear, pineapple) with a touch of dusty, sun-drenched grains that leans more towards pale ale malt than wheat. Creamy in mouthfeel and filling for a beer of modest strength. Good body with a dry, absorbing malt finish that is dusty like the nose. Sweet, fruit Starburst candy start meets a wall of leafy hops that offer a pleasant level of bitterness to the swallow. The fruit begins to linger long between sips, bitter under-ripe melon comes to mind; juicy and dominating by the end of the glass. This is quite a pleasant ale. Be mistaken, but I’d probably place this in the Golden ale sector as it has the traits of one. Refreshing stuff! (33cL, BA 08/12/11, Liquor Barons, Greenwood)
