Schooner at the Royal George.

Golden. Good clarity. White foam on top falls all too quickly to nothing. It comes back with some agitation, but falls once more, too soon.

Muted hop aroma. A tiny bit of passionfruit and very little else.

A little bit of the passionfruit comes through along with grass cuttings. Not real good at all.

Ok body and the bitterness is slightly higher than the rest would lead you to believe. However I'd hardly call it sessionable as I won't be ordering another. But this is more a reflection of taste than anything else.

I thought this used to be ok. This glass wasn't. Not the best use of calories. A way too muted sibling of their Pale Ale, falling well short of the flavour level of the stablemate. Seems like they are really paring this one back.

A: Pours a clear light golden color with a good head that fades to some lacing.

S: MIld aroma of citrus and bit of malt sweetness.

T: Taste is similar to the aroma with a bit of citrus and malt sweetness. Mild bitterness and a clean finish.

F: Light body, crisp smooth and refreshing, has a nice freshness.

O: Not a fancy but is a good session beer that goes down easy.

Definitely a bright yellow color. The nose is pretty subdued with some tart apple, a bit of crackery grain and hint of hops. It's not much more complex on the palate, but it's also not meek. There's just enough hoppy bite to make it interesting and very drinkable. Reminiscent of a kolsch, this is a great session beer. It's got plenty of flavour, just the right amount of body and it's absolutely refreshing.

S - Mild citrusy hops, some grass and corn backing.

T - Follows the nose, grapefruit, lemon, slightly hoppy, corn, some grainy malt.

M - Thin light body, medium carbonation.

O - Pretty bland really, not a patch on it's more flavourful pale ale brother.

Bottle from a liquor store in Melbourne. From notes.

A - Poured golden with good carbonation. Bright. No head, no retention or lace.

S - Light citrus and nice hops and some crackery malt.

T - Noble and grassy hops with some sweet malt and orange peel.

M - Nice carbonation and a light to medium body. Sweet kinda finish with an orange peel finish.

O/D - Nice and refreshing. Enough hops for flavour but not overpowering. A good EPA. Maybe lacking malt profile, so I'd call it more of a golden ale, but it's tasty and well done.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Very light and clear gold colour. Small amount of white head (1 cm), quickly disappearing in around 10-15 seconds. I would have rated it higher if it wasn't for the lack of head retention.

Aroma: The first thing that hit me was passionfruit. A bit of citrus, apple, and honey afterwards. Very vibrant and pleasing.

Taste: Quite different from what I was expecting from the aroma. A slight amount of honey and very mild citrus, but the main body of it was a sweet, crisp yeasty taste, with a slightly mineral-y aftertaste. A disappointment after the vibrant and 'bright' bursts of aroma beforehand.

Mouthfeel: Light body and a bit sharp. Medium carbonation.

Drinkability: Very easy to drink, although after finishing the bottle, I felt like a second wouldn't have been as pleasant. Definitely one for summer, or to help introduce macro-drinkers to other styles.
