One of White Rabbit's special release beers during Good Beer Week 2013 in Melbourne. Tried this on-tap at the Great Britain Hotel in Richmond as part of the Victorian Pint of Origin series.

Pours a reddish amber colour, with some solid hazing. Weight is decent. Head forms a solid ring, filmy and fine, with a creamy white sheen to it. Lace forms in inconsistent sheets. Overall, it looks pretty good.

Slight maple biscuit characters on the nose, with a hint of very mild smoke. Some pepper characters as well, but it doesn't have a big robustness to it. It's pleasant enough, but could be bigger, even with the same characters.

Light peppery entry, dusted with a little roasted brown malt character. Some lemon comes through as well on subsequent sips. More lemon comes through on the mid-palate with a sweeter tinge, and some vague baked smoke notes. Finish is light, but with a dry biscuity character and pie crust. Again, a whiff of smoke, but pretty mild.

Feel is light, but with some subtle weight behind it.

Overall, this has some nice characters, but it's all just a little bit light. The complexities and flavours are very interesting: had it been just a touch bigger and more expressive I would really have been on board with it.
