Pdubyah (693) - Auckland, - MAR 19, 2013
Its not startlingly good or bad, its a bit thin and without body, But it is nicely balanced on the hops. Not a beer that youd be happy to session with as it would bore you.

ANZUShophunter (390) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JAN 1, 2017
From bottle in English pint glass. Pours clear amber with frothy head and earthy citrus aroma that is a nice blend of hops and malt. The same can be said of the taste with the palate a bit more robust than other pale ales. A solid old world ale with a new world twist.

Hop_Hedonist (548) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 29, 2016
Bottle - digestive biscuit malt dominant as is the English mould - just enough fruity hops to tone down the malt - mild bitterness - too cloying to be refreshing but easy drinking accompaniment with pizza. Like it, dont love it.

Cloudy orange with a little white foam. Hoppy aroma with some caramel. Quite sweet to taste but is backed up with a solid amount of hops and earthiness.

willisread (3097) - Owensboro, Kentucky, USA - OCT 31, 2015
Bottle from Tanakaya. Pours a clear, straw gold with a small white head that lingers throughout. Very nice lacing as well. Mango, passion fruit and peach on the nose with some light melon notes as well. Medium body with very soft carbonation. Toffee-like malts are there with good fruit forward hops, but not dominant. Very well-balanced and interesting take on a British pale. Lightly bitter finish with some piney, resinous notes.

Davros (3028) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 9, 2015
Pours amber with a large head. Nose shows soft floral and grassy hops and a bit of biscuity malt. Flavours include biscuity and bready malt alongside some more of the floral and grassy hops.
