Another pale ale in Australia. The beer arrived a dark yellow ale-like color with wispy white foam. Biscuit malt, slightly toasted, with some tropical fruit and a little bitterness in the noise. A little flat on the palate as the malt flashes by. The hops are are more lemony citrus as opposed to bitter at the end. OK as far as Aussie pale ales go.

Serving type: on-tap

Geez, what a drag: I just had this on draft at the hotel where I'm staying and it was so much better then - just like a good real, pale ale should tast like. But this poured at a good temperature with a modest head, that soon faded and a bit o lace. Color is a clear amber with some tiny bubble trails. Aroma is skunk malt and not much else. Flavor is very mild- hops are almost gone, some malt and tang, not much else. Bit of bittersweet. Body/carbonation are decent. Finish is like flavor, some mild medicinal flavs.

345ml bottle purchased from Dan Murphy's in Alexandria. Although this has been out for a while now, I don't believe I've ever had it from a bottle, only on-tap.

On-tap, this pours genuinely cloudy, much like a Coopers green, which this seems to be trying to emulate, but here it's relatively clear, with just a slight hazing towards the end: although I don't believe it'd bottle-conditioned, I'm guessing there's a yeast addition towards the end to add the haze, and this has settled out in my bottle. Head is very minimal: a fine white ring around the top of the glass, even after a relatively vigorous pour. Some fine carbonation, but mostly it looks flat and still. Not bad, but not something to make you enthusiastic either.

Nose is a mixture of husky grain and earthy, woody PoR characters. There's something faintly floral sitting around the edges, but this seems to undermine the other characters, making the already questionable aromas seem weak as well. Some sweetness comes through as it warms, perhaps a touch of honey or banana. But mostly, it smells like a slightly off-colour Coopers green.

Taste is lighter and sweeter than Coopers though (sorry to keep making the comparison, but it's so obviously the comparison to make), with a solid liquid malt character running through the centre, chased by the ghost of Pride. Some fluffy savoury biscuit characters rise up after a while, along with a plasticky tone towards the back. Finish is suprisingly long, without the crispness, or the bite of hops it feels it needs.

Feel is slightly sticky, and slightly bloating.

Overall, I'm not a real fan. I find this a better option than the ubiquitous New, Extra Dry or Pure Blonde, but it's certainly worse than Coopers green or red. This just has some off-kilter elements: the additional sweetness, the funky floral overtones, the thick finish. It makes it seem like a needless and feckless brew as a result.

I'll stick to the Golden or the Pilsner if there are no better choices, thanks.
