Some people knock matilda bay for releasing this dumbed down version of Alpha Pale Ale. But at least it isnt replacing alpha (as yet), and it doesnt cost as much.
Pours a very clear pale golden colour, with a nice cascade aroma. Easy drinking with the US hop profile, in a light sort of way. Easy drinking to be had here, with a nice hint of flavour to make things interesting. Could do with a touch more bitterness. There is a slight roughness to the hop finish on the back of the tongue. Dont think any specialty malts have been used here, but just good quality pale malt.
Good introduction to craft beer for the average punter.

330ml bottle poured into pint glass15/3/14
A clear light copper with lots of bubbles of all sizes and speeds feeding a fast falling finger of foam that leaves some polka dot lace
S melon, citric hops, sweet malt, caramel a little faint and simple but decent
T just a hint of herbal hops and a slight metallic aspect that neither helps or hinders, more caramel and some dry cereal's added to what I smell
M medium bodied, stops short of being creamy from the bubbles, fairly clean finish, a little slick on the palate after the fact
O not a whole lot going on but drinkable stuff, better then macros but I'm sure I'll find better craft while in OZ
New Zealand will be a hard act to follow but I'm looking forward to my month in Australia and seeing what I can find. My first brew in OZ and first live review in a while, kind of nice not writing in my note book for a change.
