An enjoyable session beer that is light and fruity and a very good Summer choice

aroma: fruity/floral/citrus with some toffee malt. Malt becomes more pronounced as the beer opens up

taste: citrus/orange/spice with some biscuity malt and toffee along with some orange marmalade

easy drinking beer with Australian grown Galaxy hops that are balanced nicely with the malt.

Bottle: a standard dark brown 330mL bottle with a nice art deco-esque label. A nice homage to the old Astor Theatre.

Appearance: poured into a tulip - pours a mid golden-amber colour with fine carbonation across the profile. A one-finger white head pops up and settles to a solid cap. Looks good.

Aroma: toffee and caramel malts with soft grapefruit and lime citrus, with floral hops. Mouth-watering.

Taste: the flavours come through very nicely on the palate: the malts are well-accompanied by the citrus and florals. A touch of earth in there too.

Aftertaste: some hop bitterness and the earth flavours hang about nicely. Very drinkable.

Mouth feel: though it is light-to-moderate in body, this has a great feel. Pretty decent carbonation too - nice.

Overall: a nicely combined mixture of malts and hops that makes for a good sessional pale ale that rivals the best. Quite a surprise from Mildura Breweries, whose beers on the whole are quite expensive and pretty ordinary.
