This is a very tasty, refreshing beer. A very pleasant but subtle hop aroma and a lovely light amber colour. Good head and perfect carbonation. Its not a flavour explosion, but it has a perfect mild balance, with just enough hops and a spicy finish, and a real creamy medium-light body. One of the best session pale ales I have had. Spot on.

Leighton (19845) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2017
Bottle at home in Hackney - picked up at a Mare Street offie. Pours clear orange-gold with a frothy, white head. The nose has simple malts, caramel, vague pine, ripe citrus. Medium sweet flavour with ample gooey citrus, crackers, orange, lightly aged pine. Light bodied with average carbonation. Finishes with more basic bready pale malts, honey, ripe citrus, faint piney bitterness. Real entry-level stuff.

Skarecrow (496) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 20, 2017
From notes - 330ml bottle at Gate 9, Gold Coast Airport on Jan 19th. Light amber/OK head. Not much of an aroma. Mild bitterness with malty palate. Certainly very drinkable.

mabuzzer (686) - Hamilton, SCOTLAND - DEC 31, 2016
330ml bottle. Hazy copper with a foamy white head. Sweet toffee with a bitter hoppy finish. Not bad

CurlyJoe (139) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 24, 2016
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2017 Pretty standard pale. A little cloudy with white thin head. Very mild aroma of hops and summer fruit. Taste is quite bitter, with some metallic-ness, and finishes with fruit. Clean and crisp. Its a good summer beer, but seems dulled for the masses.

0.33 l can, as a gift from Australia. I did not take written notes, only numerical ones while having this.

Morboso (146) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 26, 2016
Not much going on here. A lager with a bit of bitterness on finish, pretty light-on but balanced and ok for a quaffa. Nothing offensive but does have mass produced lager undertones. Overall good choice for a lager at a barbie, but underwhelming and bland for a "pale ale".

leaparsons (10215) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2016
Bottle, Wine Tavern, Leicester. Golden amber with a bubbly head. Cardboard with caramel and weetabix. Low lemon with dusty notes. Vegetable bitterness. Not great.

Splitenz (368) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 17, 2016
I didnt enjoy this too much, but to be honest, I think I may be a bit unfair to this, as I am on the exact opposite side of the planet in Denmark, so obviously, hops dont travel all that well etc etc? Hmm... Well, that doesnt explain the feeling that the barley seems to harshly grow in my mouth. Still, not a complete disaster.

Had this beer 7 years ago in Perth WA, loved it. Tried it yesterday in a pub in northern NSW, insipid, mass produced awfulness.

beer-yum (1515) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 7, 2016
Restrained aroma in an amber pour. Big malt body is prominent due to the total lack of any hop derived bitterness. The complete opposite of the overly bitter Lazy Yak. The two combined would be a better brew.
