Pours a very clear golden hue, with a fine ring of white for a head. Some fine bubbled carbonation streams through it for the most part, although this does not exacerbate the rather lacklustre crown. Body is pretty solid, although it has enough fluidity to allow the carbonation to stream. Not bad.

Nose is a bit rank, to be honest. Harsh rubbery band-aid chlorophenol character, mixed with spicy clove characteristics and a woody hop note that reeks of Pride of Ringwood. Sigh, I don't know what they were going for, but I'm almost certain it wasn't this.

Taste is lighter, but also more dull. Again, there's a lingering PoR character around the edges, but the mild palate can't mask the harshness here or on the finish. Very weak and light palate—leaving whatever characters it has exposed in their shame for all to see.

Not impressed. Very little character to it, but with the hints of really quite unpleasant characters. It's one of "excessively bland" or "mildly offensive". Take your pick.

Appearance a clear golden colour with soft white head
Fine hop aroma, with sweet malt
Taste a sweet malt presence, amarillo hop character coming through, backed up with bitterness, with pleasing mouthfeel, overall, a good APA from a small craft brewery.

Clear golden colour with a small, foamy white head. Fair head retention.

Quite malty with a nice pale malt sweetness. Touches of citrus and tropical fruit but very light. A touch lemony.

Smooth with a light bitterness. Grainy. Rounded. The hops could be sharper and more defined.

Medium body with moderate carbonation. Fine.

A solid but unexceptional beer. I wish there was more hop to give it a bit of pop.
