Pours a brownish-amber colour, not quite brown. Head is beige, foamy and quite dense. Nice, English-ale-style head. Otherwise decent too.

Nutty and malty on the nose, very sweet but pretty decent. Fair amount of grain coming through as well; don't mind this at all.

Caramel on the palate, again mostly malty with a fair sweetness to it. Gets a little dry on the back. Runs a fairly predictable course for a brown ale, nothing standing out as particularly innovative, but decently made and enjoyable.

Bitty texture, nice body.

Yeah, could maybe use a bit more roast to get it more into the 'brown' ale territory. Nice enough characters but it's not particularly memorable.

On-tap at the GABS festival in Melbourne.

Pours a deep amber hue, quite clear with a light and fluid body. Head is fine and firm, and coloured just barely beige. Good lacing. Looks really good overall.

Limited aroma: slightly nutty with a hint of grain and malt sweetness. It's direct enough, but simple and not particularly complex or interesting.

Taste is perhaps even more generic. Light nutty grain characters on the front, but the weight of the body means it slips away very quickly. Solid malt through the centre, but again, there's almost nothing on the finish, partially due to the lack of body weight.

Nothing particularly special about this. This is a drinkable beer, but it really misses interest and complexity. I'm left thinking that I just don't care.
