3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Rustic sweetness with a nice bitter tang. Dark yellow colour and a thin head.
Not bland, not ordinary in taste, worth a try.

There?s a lot of carbonation on the pour, which lifts the aromas of pine and grsss. Looks pretty good with a cloudy amber body topped with a solid white head. Taste is a nice blend of biscuit malt and fresh hops. The hops tend to take over on the palate, and this is probably a bit more aggressively hopped than many similar Aussie APAs with resin notes coming through. Finishes crips and dry. Good beer.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2012 This was an over carbonated and insipid APA. You are so distracted by the fizz that you cannot appreciate the flavours. I was very disappointed!!

Bottle. Golden pour with off white head and soapy lace. Citrus hops and grainy malts on the nose and tongue with a mild dry bitter finish for the style. Nothing hits you over the head. Light-medium body with a spiritely mouthfeel. An easy drinking lawn mower beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a dark cloudy amber with plenty of sediment. Unfortunately had an enormous white head - way too big. Big mixed citrus aroma, sweet too, and inviting. The taste - WOW, absolutely scrumptious. Sweet well-rounded citrus rather than other pale’s bitterness or sourness with a good balance of bready yeastiness. Long balanced dry finish. Full body with lively carbonation that says "hey, you’re drinking me". Think is the best pale ale I’ve ever had. Pity about the head.
