Pours a clear gold color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Good retention and slight lacing. Smells of floral hops, pale malt, slight sweet malt, and a hint of a cola. Fits the style of an English Pale Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of floral hops, pale malt, slight sweet malt, hint of tea, and a hint of a cola. Overall, weak aroma and body, and the cola qualities are odd.

Pours a slightly cloudy orange/gold with minimal head and very thing lacing.
Smell is sweet grain and some floral notes.
Taste is sweet up front with some grassy mildly bitter finish.
Well balanced and surprisingly pleasant.

Part of a flight at Outback, so it makes sense they try to slip in an Australian beer. A little flavorless. Not much in the way of hops though you would expect that from a pale ale.

Drinkable, but I definitely don't go out of my way to drink this on a regular basis.

The beer is cloudy and has a lot of floaties in it but it is a couple years old. The head didnt last long. The aroma has a mixture of sweetness and earth smells as well as a hint of holiday spice. The beer tastes like a watered down version of the smell. The beer has a nice carbonation, bubbly feel to it.

It pours golden with hardly any head despite the obvious high carbonation. The aroma is bready and with some malty sweetness. A surprising fruity presence. The taste is well balanced and fairly rich for a beer of this style. Medium body.
