look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Look - hazy body. Orange-amber. One finger off head head does not stay around.

Smell is a little peach, a little mango, but not alot going on.

Taste is very pleasant drinking from the get-go. Sweetish fruit salad notes on front palate, and a little hop bitterness. Little yeast. Integrated tase, nothing dominates.

Mouthfeel light and sessionable.

Very good session beer.

A - Cloudy orange body with a finger of white head from an aggressive pour. Faint short webs of lace.

S - Mild tropical fruit hops with some sweet malt.

T - Follows the nose, traces of green apple. Not much punch.

M - Light thin body, low carbonation. Watery.

O - OK balance and not the worst pale ale on the market but much better options available.

Slight cloudy light golden appearance. Low carbonation. Thin frothy white head. Very little sediment in the bottle if it is bottle conditioned. Some previous reviews mention this as a low point so not sure if they have modified their process but looks fine now.

A gentle mix of malt hops and yeast. Not quite expected for the style, but certainly not unpleasant. Light citrus and yeast esters with a bit of malt sweetness.

Similar makeup in the taste. Light hop and yeast character supported by backing malt sweetness. Low bitterness but enough for balance. Yeast character comes out a bit more as it warms.

An interesting beer this and a bit tough to review. Not sure if it's brewed as an EPA or just classed wrong here. If the style here is wrong it's probably closest to an American blonde, but even then the yeast is still a but out of place. In it's favor though, it's flaws are not deal breakers and may just be part of the character of the beer.

The beer advocate boys are tough or got a bad batch. Three sheets does not deserve an "F" and would recommend a re-try. My guess is they got some in the US which was spoiled. They need to try it fresh and I believe they would at least give it a "D"....I mean c'mon this is better than Bud Light! Anyway, I thought it was quite tasty. It was a lighter beer, good for the summer months. It wasn't an all-powerful West Coast pale ale, more of a East Coast pale with hints/scents of fruit. Dont be swayed....at this try it.

Reviewed from notes taken on a recent trip to Sydney.

Served in a wine glass. Glass of cold water on the side to sip from periodically.

Appearance: As served the beer is an orange/light brown color with a ¼" white head that recedes slowly to a small ring around the glass. At first sipping leaves some lacing but by midway through the beer not much lacing is left.

Smell: The aromas include light malt character, some fruity touches and some nice fragrant but subtle grassy hops. But they are faint and hard to sort out.

Taste: The flavors include some light citrus and other fruity character with some light hop bitterness, mostly grassy.

Edit: After filing this review and then looking through some of the other reviews it seems to me there is a big difference between having the beer fresh on tap at the brewpub and having it from a bottle.

Mouthfeel: The mouth feel was medium to light bodied and soft with light carbonation. The finish is medium length with the sweetness disappearing first to leave behind some grassy bitterness that fades away relatively soon.

Drinkability: I thought this one reasonably drinkable, both before dinner and as a companion to the Thai seasoned Baramundi dish I had for dinner. While it doesn't make my list of top Pale Ales, I certainly would not turn down another.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

This pours a bright golden colour. Almost looks unnatural. Not much head to speak of. Cloudy.

I'm getting some weird aroma but I can't really identify it. Doesn't smell good though. It almost smells like powdered Gatorade. It's got a tartness to it. When I give the glass a good swirl I occasionally get some ok hop aromas but not a lot.

The palate is really dead. If I trusted my tasting ability a bit more I'd say it was infected but I'm not really sure.

I will try and get another bottle from another source to review later but this one will have to stand for now.

Have another bottle.

Colour the same.

The aroma is still a little strange but at least now on the fruity side of strange. Actually they grow on you.

Taste marginally better but still not that impressed. Definitely not infected.

I keep getting told how good this on tap. Looks like I'll need to head to Sydney sometime soon.
