Poured from bottle. Light thin head. Dark orange/Amber colour. Malt and citrus nose. Interesting and strange taste. Can taste the hops. Is slightly sour at first taste but sweetens as it warms. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A very unusual DPA. Where was the aroma? I could not detect the merest whiff. Absolutely none. The head was thick and lasted the entire 500ml while cooking dinner. Perhaps this was overcarbonated? It had been in the fridge for days and moved gently to the bench, yet fizzed over when opened. The head would not die and even when I scraped it off, there was no aroma. The taste was great; mild malt backbone with a pine and herb hoppiness. A fraction too bitter at the end, but still a great 8 for the taste.

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2014 $4 value, rich gold colour with strong malty hoppy aroma, long lasting bitter hoppy taste though not overpowering, very drinkable

Great aroma from the bottle, malty with citrus and subtle pine. Lasting thin off white head with lacing, brilliant orange with gold. Well balanced medium to full body. Clean finish. Fruity. Highly sessionable

Herzog_Wilhelm (49) - Bavaria, GERMANY - JAN 5, 2014
In German: Bitteres, deutlich vom tschechischen Braumeister beeinflusstes Ale. Leicht lige Konsistenz, gegen Ende krftig bitter. Am Hopfen wurde nicht gespart, allerdings dadurch begrenzt sffig und ein wenig einseitig. In bad englisch: Rather bitter and obviously czech influenced Ale. Somehow oily mouthfeel, later even more bitter. Hop use was clearly not limited. Unfortunately not very easy to drink and somehow biased.

DylansDad (619) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 4, 2013
Smell: like a box of weetbix, but at least theyre fresh weetbix. Then, in the glass, a subtle, almost pilsner-like aroma creeps in, and then, yes, a pinch of pine. Taste is all in the after-taste for me. The beginning and middle are very soft, sweet fruitiness edged with light green pine, then the after-taste kicks in with a bit more of the bitterness an un-subtle prick like me was hoping for in the beginning and middle. Its not a killer beer, but if I was 20 years younger, Id score a couple of dozen of these and hoover up the suds all night long.

Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 16, 2013
Coppery-orange colour with a firm greenish-white head and plentiful sparkle. Its a good looking beer. The aroma is reminiscent of everything I like about Pacific NW amber ales: resinous, herbaceous with orchard stonefruit maltiness. This comes through in the flavour with some good green pine hoppy bitterness and twinges of creamy mouthfeel and sherbet. The finish is lingering and easily passes the most important test of all - will I have another? Yes. Yes I will.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2014 An honest, no-nonsense, beer that would tick most of the boxes of most beer lovers. Flavourful, available, and affordable - whats not to like?
