The barman tells me this ale is fermented with wattle seed and mountain pepper. Why ? I wonder...

a) Palish amber, white head which sinks

s) Metallic hop, slightly funky maltiness...spicy, slight wild seed note

f) Late honeyish finish... Reschs Pilsener with spiced honey.

m) Medium palate, refreshing, slight cloy at the back.

d) All up an average offering from Redoak. I am keen for Australian Pale Ale to become a bonafide style, not a sub-category of EPA or APA. There are a few Aussie ales that are using native spices to stamp some sort of "Australian-ness" on this category. But I don't think this is necessary, and too cute. Stick to good malt, PoR hops, and a good yeast and you'll be right.

Dark burnished copper amber colour, with a frothy head of yellow bubbles. Some lacing. Little noticeable carbonation.

Some sweet sugary crystal malts on the nose, a faint citrus hint, quite sweet and candy like. With a light savoury character under it.

Quite thin on the palate, rather weak and thin, although there's a lingering sweet citrus character. A little dusty on the back palate. Mouthfeel is zesty. Reasonable.

Reminds me a lot of Just Another Redoak Beer. Not offensive, but just with that rather sweet and lacklustre flavour profile.
