I've had this as both bottled and on tap. I liked the tap a bit better - held its head a bit longer and laced nicely and the aroma seemed more distinct, clear caramel and some fruit. Draw had a 2 finger head, dark brown appearance.
Taste was good, not too bitter and finished well. Easy to drink.
Overall it was my fav on tap at Little Creatures Brew Pub in Freo. Australia, even though it isn't "officially" a product of Little Creatures.

Appearance: Deep and earthy mahogany, with a dark beige head. Head fades quickly and leaves minimal lacing down the glass.

Aroma: Toffee notes along with some grain and barley-sugar.

Taste: Sweet toffee and malt with some sultana aspects. Maybe a touch of chocolate. Minimal bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body and medium carbonation.

Overall: After trying their Witbier, I was a bit worried about this one. Fortunately, it proved a step in the right direction, as it was a better beer than their White Ale. Probably a little bit too conservative and thin, it was, however, quite drinkable and inoffensive.

330ml bottle poured into a goblet...

A- dark mahogany with very little to no head.

S- toasted malt and caramel.

T- not near as bad as I was expecting, given the reviews. Taste follows the nose. Fair body with subtle malted barley characteristics.

MF- pretty smooth and well balanced. Yea, feels pretty good in there. Let's do it again...

O- I am pleasantly suprised by this one. After opening mediocre craft beer after mediocre craft beer, this one's actually drinkable and the kind of thing I would actually have another of... Salute, lapin de blanc.
