Brewed for GABS Festival in Melbourne 2013. Called a 'red/brown' ale on the booklet; I've classified it as a red because that's more how it came out.
Pours a rich red colour, clear with slight off-white head. Webbed out a bit but dissipates quickly. Not very brown, and a bit listless-looking.
Smells very sweet, with buttery caramel notes and a big whiff of medicinal phenols. Not much else to it, just mediciney-sweet. Not hugely appealing.
Taste is dry, and grainy. Nutty malt upfront with oatmeal and a touch of pecan, develops some slight toffee flavour on the mid-palate before moving into woody territory - oak and cedar wood with a touch of sawdust. Remains sweet throughout, and doesn't really go anywhere.
Body is fine, fluid with a bit of mouth presence.
I don't really get a 'great oak' character, tastes and feels a little underattenuated. Certainly underwhelming.
Serving type: on-tap
