An "India Amber Ale" according to brewer Dave Padden, hopped with Mosaic and aged on Hungarian oak. Tried on tap at Spooning Goats in Sydney.

Pours an orange-tinged amber-red colour, with quite solid hazing. Body looks good and relatively full. Head is a fine, frothy mess of off-white, that almost crackles like a hand-pumped beer. Lacing is superb. Looks very good.

Nose is sweeter than expected: some caramel, a little oaky vanilla, rounded and a little flat. There are some earthy hop characters coming through, leafy and a little bit herbal. It's a little blunt, but it's not bad: just not as big as I expected from Riverside.

Taste is good. Very smooth sweetness on the front with a touch of the oak character. Hops come through on the back, giving a mild organic fruit character: sweet, but earthy at the same time. There's some marmalade on the finish, with a crisp hoppy bite, that genuinely feels more like an amped up English variety than the American kind.

Feel is exceptional. Smooth, but clean. Rich, but bright. It creates the balance in this beer: and drags everything up with it. The rest is good: the feel is superb.

Overall, this is a very good brew. It maybe doesn't push the oak enough, or differentiate itself enough from the rest of the range for a seasonal, but not differentiating yourself from Riverside's excellent range of regular brews is really no bad thing.

Growler from the brewery.

A-- Dark orange amber color, almost a burnt caramel. One finger off white head, nice and compact, good retention to the head. Leaves good lacing.

S-- Dank, earthy fruits. Tropical fruits, pineapple, grapefruit, orange peel, and pine notes. Mixed with a good caramel backbone and slight bits of wood and vanilla (from the Hungarian oak). Really like the earthy component of the Mosaic hop. Adds a nice dimension to the beer.

T-- Bits of wood with smooth vanilla and caramel. Followed by earthy pine, grapefruit and orange. Nice rounded but gritty bitterness.

M-- Moderately oily, just enough resin to get by. Relies more on the earthiness of the body. Carbonated just right. Little to no oak in the feel but a lot of long lasting pine, grapefruit and orange.

O-- Use more of this hop please!!! In a short time Riverside has shown they know how to work hops as well as anybody in the country. Fun little seasonal.
