This is a murky amber-brown beer with a very slight, quickly fading head. The aroma is fruity, sweet--overly sweet--malt. Fortunately, there's bitterness to cut the sweetness in the flavor, though no hops can be tasted at all. The malt is mostly caramel, rather heavy. Somewhat oxidized taste (the store I bought it at dates their bottles on arrival, and this is only a month old from then--maybe it sat elsewhere?). Not bad per se, but not interesting in any way.

Bottle: a very solid dark brown 360mL bottle with a fancy label - looks like a piece of art.

Appearance: mid-dark golden brown/amber. A limited head with good retention but no lacing. There is some fine sediment floating at the bottom of the glass.

Aroma: not very much on the nose - some savoury notes and grain. Not overpowering, but not really very much there to be honest.

Taste: nut-driven with some bitterness. Not much in the way of complexity - a bit disappointing actually. Flavours fade slowly with a distinct lack of roundness.

Aftertaste: the hop bitterness remains for a time - not too complex in flavour though.

Mouth feel: light- to- medium in body with moderate carbonation, suits the style.

Overall: not a bad beer, in fact it's quite nice. I found it to be more of an IPA in feel rather than a Red Ale though, due to the higher hop content. The bigger turn-off for me was a case price exceeding AU$160 (2013). Not acceptable for a 'quite nice' beer.

Pours amber with a quickly fading head.
Nose shows caramel, bready malt and some resinous hops. Nice malt character.
Malty flavours too. Bready malt and sweet syrupy notes. A fair bit of resinous earthy hops too, along with an assertive, well-balanced bitterness.
Carbonation could be a bit higher.
