3.6/5  rDev +4.3%

A: Pours a clear golden color with a small head that fades to some lacing.

S: Aroma of citrus, some fruit and caramel malt. nice fresh smell.

T: Tatse of citrus, just a bit of caramel sweetness and a trace of fruit. Mild bitterness and a dry finish.

F: Medium body, crisp smooth and refreshing. Nicely balanced.

O: very enjoyable beer. A solid offering from the brewer.

Pours golden with a lovely, large persistent head.
Nose shows juicy, fruity and floral hops, with sweet confectionery-like malt prevailing as well. Not all that bold, but still impressive.
The confectionery-like malt transfers through as a flavour, but a grainy note creeps in as well. More juicy hops can be found, before a boring bitterness rolls through in an off-putting, weak finish.
Too much carbonation.

3.23/5  rDev -6.4%

It pours a golden amber that is reasonably clear and shimmering. A nice 1.5cm head that holds well.

The smell is not strong but what I got was a pleasant combination of citrus fruits and florals.

The citrus comes through in the taste in the same subtle levels. A light hoppy bitterness comes through on the aftertaste.

There is a harp carbonation early that would perhaps support a more robust citrus taste. It has possibly gone too far for the subtle style of the beer.

Overall it lacks the full quality of flavours that you might associate with the word premium. A pale ale brewed with the traditional Australian beer palette in mind. Would work better with bigger flavours and less carbonation.

3.6/5  rDev +4.3%

A: pours amber/golden, very thin head that dissipates quickly to leave a thin film,

S: not too bad smell - smell of spices, faint cinnamon smell, slightly fruity and hoppy

T:slightly fruity initial taste with subdued malty taste coming through with a subtle bitterness. nice aftertaste

M: fairly light, not too watery, moderate carbonation

Its a decent APA with a pleasant slightly hoppy aftertaste, not the best example getting around, but a beer I would try again happily
