Pretty dece. Poured at a good temperature with a nice, thick, foamy, long lasting, cream-colored head, and lots of lace. Color is a lovely, clear, red amber with some tiny bubbles. Nose is malt, fruit, hint of roast. Flavor's like nose, fruit comes out a lot more along with caramel and toffee. Body/carbonation are good. Finish is like flavor, no odd quals. quite drinkable. Nicely done. Definitely best of the bottles I've had. (429 characters)

I just stumbled across this beer while in Australia. Looked interesting so I thought I would give it a try. Overall, I am pretty happy with it. It has a spectacular deep, copper color and kept a decent head on it. It has a caramel like smell to it and the taste is very much what you would expect based on its aroma. This is a good beer - certainly above average. I am glad I stumbled on it... (393 characters)
