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

Hazy light golden colour with a big, fluffy white head. Good head retention.
Dusty, lightly malty aroma with a hint of earthy but indescript hop. Nothing special.
Light pale malt flavour with some serious graininess. Very mild bitterness and a touch of earthy, slightly metallic hops. What a waste of malt and hops.
Medium body with moderate carbonation. Fine.
This is not a good pale ale. In an age where craft brewing is moving ahead, a beer like this is pseudo-craft taking us 10 years backwards. Bring back the old Golden Ale brewed in Camperdown I say.

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.
