3.7/5  rDev +5.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours a dark brown amber hue with a little bit of beige head. Very good lacing, thick and sticky.

Acrid wine characters on the nose. Lots of floral hops make this an odd hybrid of nice bitter/red wine. Quite good though, I certainly rate it.

Front palate has a hint of caramel, good hops follow in later. However, overall the palate is a bit short and a bit watery. The flavours are there and the flavours are good but there's not enough of them. Mouthfeel is likewise a bit watery, like you can feel the flavours there but then once you've swallowed it's like "Did I just drink that, or what?" you just can't tell.

Drinkable though, and like I said the flavours are good. I just want more of them, dammit!

3.4/5  rDev -3.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Darkish amber, with 3 fingers of head that reduced.

Smell - Strong, quite hoppy and a little bit fruity.

Taste - The hops aren't very evident in the taste, and it is not as fruity as I hoped either. The splash of Pepperjack Shiraz doesn't seem to be a particularly good addition. Not bad, but a little disappointing.

Mouthfeel - Average aftertaste, good texture and carbonation.

Drinkability - Easy to drink, but not very interesting.

Overall - A little below par for an Australian ale.

pepper jack by name Cracker Jack by nature.
this is an impressive little number.
A brilliant resddish teak in colour it looks appealing.
The hops kick in with aromatics on the nose and continue with refinement on the palate.
Stewed fruit flavours and a subtle hint of the Shiraz grapes used in the brewing over ride the balanced grain background.
A brilliant and very enjoyable beer
