345ml bottle poured into pint glass 8/22/12 thanks Mikey for hauling this around the world for me
-from notes

A very pale golden yellow with lots of bubbles but just a short lived thin film that leaves no lace

S faint tropical notes with some bread, honey and caramel, I get just a little bubblegum as it warms

T not very far from the smell at all, I get a little thrills gum I didn't smell, its a soapy gum for all you Aussies

M light bodied with perhaps too much carbonation, its a little foamy

O a pretty basic brew but its easy enough too drink, not the strongest smell and taste but whats there I like

pretty light beer perhaps well suited for a hot Aussie summer, thanks again Mikey

I never actually saw any ratings for this one before I took my notes and I'm surprised its rated this low, I wasn't blown away by any means but a 2.78 average? seems pretty low

I am a fan of this Brewery for a variety of reasons , so probably mark them a little higher than others producing the same beer.
that said this is one of the weaker beers.
It looks ok and smells ok but just tastes a bit plain.
English Pale Ale seems to be a hodge podge of potential flavours , and this doesnt' seem to capture any in particular , and certainly not any well.
Drinkable but in racing parlance , prefer others

a) Straw coloured, haze-free, good bubbling and decent lace.

s) Grain and apple aromas. Slight funky note of damp hay.

t) Husky note, slight honey, restrained hops, almost Kolsch-like in delicate grain profile.

m) Light, spritzig

o) Refreshing ale, definitely in the class of "Aussie Pale" (but not "Pacific Ale"). A good sessionable, summer ale.
