4.04/5 rDev +4.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
Tried on-tap at the Vic on the Park during the Sydney Craft Beer Week launch party.
Pours a solid red colour with decent weight to the body and a little haze to scatter the light. Head is very firm, a crackling tangle of pale yellow that leaves very solid lace. It's a great looking beer.
Pleasant rounded hops on the nose with some citrus to provide a sharper tone. Underneath is a very solid caramel malt that gives some sweetness, but mostly provides balance: a little like marmalade it its balance of sharpness and sweetness. Slight herbal notes and a little pepper come through as well just to make it interesting.
Taste is very pleasant. Bright and clean entry that soon gets more heft from the malt making the mid-palate smooth and substantial. Cleansing bitterness on the back integrates with a burnt sugar/caramel character that evaporates into a burst of fresh herbs. Nice stuff.
Feel is lovely: smooth and clear with a latent carbonation. It's like a cask pull. Great stuff.
This is seriously good stuff: and it just solidifies Dennis as a producer of very fine beers. They're doing interesting stuff, but pulling off balance and coherence as well. Nice work.
Serving type: on-tap

Tried at the Sydney Craft Beer Week launch party.
Pours a reddish-tinged amber colour. Cloudy. Head is small, bubbles with decent but clumpy lace. Looks nice.
Smells hoppy, with nice malt notes. Distinct cinnamon and nutmeg notes with some brown sugar toastiness and some tangy hops. Pleasant, but a bit two-streamed. Doesn't quite meld together.
Taste has more hoppy notes. Apple, some citrus, that gets bitter and almost metallic on the back. Some malty notes, blends better with hops to merge subtly into bitterness from the slight toasty front. Decent drop; some nice toastiness.
Bit of texture, bit of hop pull, yeah it drinks alright.
Nice enough red ale. Nice hop/malt balance, maybe a bit more on the hop side but decent.
