TedE (1326) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 13, 2017
330ml bottle at Wrest Point casino, Hobart. Into glass, pours a cloudy amber with floaties and small frothy head. Highly carbonated, tiny bubbles. Nose is raisins and malt. Light and refreshing. Finish is grassy with herbal bitterness. Quite similar to Cooper’s sparkling which is not a bad beer to be compared to.

Westkyoto77 (635) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 28, 2016
Bottle. Not the best looker, but an inviting skunky, floral nose. Rather tangy and hoppy. Medium to thin mouthfeel. Not too shabby.

varanid99 (1208) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 10, 2015
Orange gold pour with next to no head. Floral, earthy, caramel aromas. Taste is very similar, but slightly thin

KeefOz (1838) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JAN 1, 2014
Poured a cloudy orangey amber with a few millimetres of off-white froth for a head. Laced as a few spots. Carbonation low with small to medium bubbles in trails. Aroma of sweet caramel and spicy floral hops - a good pale ale aroma. Taste moderately sweet with mild hops bitterness. Light to medium body. Short thin spicy finish. Quite nice.

Stew41 (2025) - Phuket, THAILAND - AUG 3, 2012
An honest reflection of the commercial descriptor. Subtle old world pale ale with a quite wonderful earthy almost funky hop character. Otherwise a little weak on palate strength and this becomes more apparent as the beer warms up.

mkel07 (5954) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 14, 2011
330ml bottle. Deep orange colour with a thin flat sand coloured foam. Flowery hop aroma is pleasant enough and there is a nutty almond finish to the flavour. Moderate in body and flavour it doesn’t push the senses too far.

hawthorne00 (3943) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 2, 2011
Bottle. Almost clear amber with a large loose off-white head that collapses to a coat. Aroma of floral honey, biscuits, some spices. Moderately sweet with honey, biscuits and mild spices. Thinnish bodied, but crisp and very quaffable. Falls away quite quickly at the finish.

3.1
Maris (1513) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JUN 9, 2011
From a 330ml bottle on 9/6/2011. Pours a slightly murky copper colour with a medium head. The aroma has a quite a bit of yeast, citrus, tea and spices. Taste wise, it’s relatively straight forward - a bit fruity, with notes of lemon and spices, and a bit of bready malt. The bitterness is medium. Not bad but not notable.

3.5
Davros (3178) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 2, 2011
Pours coppery brown with a large, lasting head. Nose shows caramel, nutty malt, bananas and spicy, floral hops. Nice, uncomplicated. Similar flavours, lots more nutty malt and spicy hops. Finishes with a well-balanced bitterness. Too much carbonation.
