Bottle from Purvis. From notes.

A - Poured hazy copper. One finger of white soapy head. No lace and no retention.

S - Aromas of mild toffee, some hops, some smoke and some citrus. Seemed fairly tame.

T - Smoke again. So odd. Toffee and citrus. Couldn't wrap my head around this one.

M - Mild carbonation, light and thin body with a mild dryness.

O/D - A terribly weak showing of flavours in a style with potential to showcase different flavours to new craft drinkers. Smoke flavour was really strange and didn't seem to fit. Thin body was odd as well. Won't revisit this.

Bottle: standard 330mL brown bottle, stylish craft label.

Appearance: the only word to describe the colour is in fact golden orange. Very rich in colour, with a ton of floaties. A one-finger white head pops up and drops to a solid cap.

Aroma: highly spiced, with sweet grains and a touch of bread malts. Kind of different to the normal golden ale, and I'm not sure it's in a good way.

Taste: a zingy spice up front, with some fruit and those bread malts at the back. Not overwhelming, but decent.

Aftertaste: lingers nicely, with the malts staying for quite a while. Not bad at all.

Mouth feel: light to medium in body with a moderate, fine carbonation. Could go down quite well in a session.

Overall: at AU$75 a case (2013), this is a bit laughable. It's a cask ale, which I like, but it is nowhere near good enough to command a price like that. Perhaps if it was $60-$65 a case. Perhaps. A bit disappointing after 3 Ravens' brilliant Black Stout.
