(bottle) First whiff of this smelt delightful. Beautiful sweet malt and citrus hop aroma. First taste was surprisingly thin. Dark yellow/amber colour. Frail head which rapidly dissipated. Some puny bitterness there, nothing outstanding. Some soapy drab/off melon flavours. DeliriumT (537) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JAN 24, 2012
Not much of an aroma from this beer. It doesn’t give you the hop nose that you’re expecting from a craft pale ale. Overall very drinkable but not as interesting as you might hope from what is considered to be a boutique beer. bigbish (712) - California, USA - JAN 1, 2012
Not as good as the other beers at Lord Nelsons. Smooth drinking if you’re going to have a lot though. Rosslew (320) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 26, 2011
Great local beer. Very good colour. Very light on after taste. Can drink more than a few at single setting. Kept its taste to the end.

Golden coloured body with a hazy glow and a thin off-white head. Aroma of light floral and citrus hops with a good dose of malt and a very light honey scent. Medium-bodied; Assertive fresh hop flavour that doesn’t last too long, some good malt notes behind, a little sweetness and alcohol flavours and a touch of herbal and dry notes. Aftertaste shows a nice bit of honey and sweetness, but mainly a good mix of malt and hops that shows well. Overall, a nice beer and with the pleasant surroundings, a great beer. I sampled this pint on draught at the brewpub/hotel in The Rocks, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia on my honeymoon on 14-August-2009. crispi (107) - AUSTRALIA - APR 12, 2011
330ml bottle. pours hazy dark amber. hoppy, with a bit of fruit. fairly bitter, with some yeast finish (like home brew!). BarossaLuke (552) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 1, 2011
Golden amber colour, has some nice fruity hop aroma, seems like Amarillo to me. A little hazy to look at, sort of in the Coopers tradition. Pretty easy drinking Aussie pale ale style. BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 30, 2011
Bottle. Slightly hazy golden amber pour with a foamy white head that doesn’t last long. Aroma is equal parts biscuity malt and citrusy hops. Flavour is very similar to aroma with notes of lemon, grapefruit and orange stand out as well as the biscuity malt and a hint of yeast, especially in the aftertaste. Light, almost watery mouthfeel with moderate carbonation and a lingering, mildly bitter finish. Pretty good if somewhat undistinguished pale; pleasant and sessionable.

355mL. Pours a clear light orange (SRM 6) with really no head formation and no lace. Aroma is orange, tangerine, citrus, lemon, something a bit off. Taste is cloying sweet, bringing on an instant headache. Taste is watery, cardboard, newspaper, barely malty or hoppy. Suddy to clean palate. Rather subdued to almost no hop profile in the body. Watery to cardboardy palate.
