3.58/5  rDev -2.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

A: Deepish golden colour, nice pillowy head and even some 'hills' in it. Slightly cloudy.

N: Mild malty nose.

T: Sweet and malty, unusual for a pale ale. Perhaps a bit too sweet for my palate but totally suitable to the style.

M: Syrupy and thick, but not overly so.

Overall, a good example of the style.

Serving type: on-tap

Pours a burnished amber colour with furious carbonation feeding a nice fluffy head that sinks unevenly. Beige colour, nice and dense bubbling. Yeah, looks good.

Smells caramelly, lots of English toffee malt with hints of vanilla pods and some pleasant cakey notes. Not much else, just sweet. Nicely sweet though, with some richness backing up. It could use more bitterness, or some bitterness, but it's pleasant enough for me to forgive.

Taste is sweet on the front, with lots of caramel and more of that vanilla. Some sweet grainy notes then proceed to a bitterness that emerges early but subtly. Not a lot of hop flavour but a lot of its bitterness cleaning up the palate, quite woody and smooth with a bit of honey lying underneath the back-palate. Hops clean up and remain behind after the sweetness has gone, although the sweetness does linger and overstay its welcome a bit, methinks.

A little bit harsh on the mouthfeel. Lots of sizzle without a lot of body to back it up. Yeah a bit rough and untamed.

Pretty nice drinking overall. Nice long finish, tasty overall. Welcome onto the scene, Mountain Ridge.

Had on tap at the Paddy's Brewers Market Festival in Sydney, October 2010.

Pours a lovely, slightly cloudy deep amber colour. Head is fine and sticky, leaving sheeting lacing down the glass. Minimal carbonation. Very fine and creamy head, which is particularly good. Very decent look to it.

Odd, lightly sweet aromas on this. Frozen white bread, a bit of caramel and butterscotch and a light marzipan touch. Nice enough though.

Taste is also odd, with a slight liquorice character, more white bread, vanilla essence, green appleskin and a cleansing bitterness through the back. They're all nice characters though, and it makes a very tasty beer. Mouthfeel very smooth.

This is a very nice and very drinkable beer. It has lots of interest and lots of character. I'd be very happy sinking a few of these.
