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...

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.

On tap at James Squires in Perth. Slightly tangy, mildly sweet, very light bodied. Almost syrupy, more of a sipper. Not such an easy drinker. Could be the Aussie hops throwing me off.

From bottle, Pours amber with a offwhite head. Aroma of malt, caramel, nuts. Flavor is light sweet, malty, caramel, nuts, light grass. Thin to medium body, lively carbonation.

T follows smell. Best part. Crisp finish light and clean good malt bill fine beer 3.5
F fine for crispness and finish. 3.5
O 3.5 good core beer A bit watery but I'd definitely try it again. Good food beer.
