Pours a deep reddish brown colour, clear with decent foamy head, beige in colour. Good-looking, bit more on the red than the brown side, but nice.
Malts take the fore upfront with a good roasty note as well lending it a bit of dryness as well. Subtle, but nice blend of sweet and toasty notes. Not bad.
Wow, nutty. Peanuts up the wazoo on the palate. Slight roastiness comes through later and all floating on a subtle malt backbeon, but yeah the nuttiness almost gets savoury at times. PRetty interesting drop.
Bit thin on the body, but OK texture.
It does taste a little like homebrew. A good one, but it's got a standard "to-style" sort of flavour with a slightly unpolished finish.
Serving type: on-tap

Brewed by Australian champion homebrewer Barry Cranston at Bridge Road for the Great Australasian Beer SpecTapular. I tried it on tap at the festival.
Pours a clear reddish-brown hue with a light body. Head is full and frothy, forming a genuinely yellow colour that leaves some firm, sudsy lace. Looks pretty good.
Nutty grain on the nose, with some bright, clear rustic notes that suggest harvested wheat and turned earth. There's a sweetness to it that's almost a vanilla smoothness. Very pleasant indeed.
Light entry on the palate, with some smooth vanilla characters midway through. Finish has a slight nuttiness to it. It's pretty light all up, but well-balanced and pretty inoffensive. Feel is good: smooth and creamy.
Very drinkable. Not very exciting. Still, it's a very solid, well-made beer, that to be honest I'd be happy to drink regularly. Good stuff, Barry. Good stuff, Bridge Road.
