A: pours a cloudy copper color with a small head that fades to some lacing.

S: Aroma of citrus, some malt aroma and grain.

T: taste of citrus and a mild malt sweetness, bit of spicy fruit and some grain. Mild bitterness and a slightly sticky finish.

F: Light body, fairly smooth, with a grainy texture. Reminds me more of a Golden Ale.

O: Decent beer, goes best with BBQ.

Amber pour with a large persistent head.
Aroma shows fruity hops and some herbal notes. Green apples, pears, grapes, coriander, cinnamon and lots of sweet malt are all present.
Flavours are... darker: none of the afore-mentioned fruity hops, but impressive toasty malt is quite prominent. Unfortunately the malt is left unchecked, and ends up quite strong. Again, there are notes of cinnamon/coriander.
This really needs more carbonation to balance the malt, and create a more refreshing finish.

This pours a cloudy orange colour with very little head and what is there disappears quickly. The beer looks dead.

The aromas are all over the shop. A bit of malt, a bit of hops but none of them very distinct.

Quite a bit of sweetness on the palate.A little bit of caramel. A little bit of the Australian hops (which ones?) spoken about on the label come through but very indistinct.

Not the best from these guys.
