A bit thin for being an American pale ale I think. Still very drinkable and quite refreshing.

330ml bottle poured into pint glass 17/3/14 from notes

A light golden yellow with some big fast bubbles feeding a finger of foam that's gone in a flash leaving some polka dot lace

S cracker, bread crust, orange creamsicle, fairly grainy, a little spruce, smells rather faint all-around

T some metallic notes, some fruit but not much, mostly sweet grainy malt

M lighter side of medium, soft carbonation, almost creamy, bready finish

O pretty basic, light grains, the hops need some intensity, nothing really to go searching for

Another fairly basic beer that will get lost in my memories. I'm a little surprised to be adding this one but from what I can tell its different from those listed, someone correct me if I'm wrong

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

Format: standard 330mL brown bottle with a simple but stylish label.

Appearance: light yellow in colour with some fine carbonation and a half-finger head that hangs about for approx 30 seconds.

Aroma: there is absolutely no aroma at all. And I don't mean very little, but absolutely nothing. I can't get a whiff of anything whatsoever.

Taste: quite bland to start, just a slight sweetness from the malts and a touch of floral hops. Not mind-blowing.

Aftertaste: the flavours finally come through a bit stronger on the finish - some bitterness with some floral hops as well. I have to admit it is quite refreshing.

Mouth feel: great for the style - light- to- moderate in body with a smooth mid-carbonation. Goes down very easy - definitely good for a warmer climate.

Overall: this pale ale has a great drinkability - fairly light in flavour and goes down very easily. I could see myself going through a 6-pack very quickly in the summer months. Is it worth AU$56 a case though? Perhaps once every while as a change.

From bottle, Pours a clear, very faint golden colour, a little zesty, refreshing, not too bad at all. Not a big flavoured beer but quite drinkable. Nice.
