Bottle 330ml at Mrs Parma’s. Very well-balanced ale. Aromas of caramel, grass, and cola. Taste is sweet and bitter, with good length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Brown, cloudy, with a frothy white head.

Maris (989) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - FEB 1, 2013
From a 330ml bottle on 1/2/2013. Pours a clear amber with a small head. the aroma is very curious for an amber ale - quite floral and fruity, with just a touch of toasty malt. The flavour is also curiously sweet and fruity, with lots of toffee malt in the background. The bitterness is subdued but works well in combination. A unusual amber which is very enjoyable.

Niksko (337) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 30, 2013
Bottle from the brewery.

Pours a lovely dark amber with a thin white head that fades quickly.

Nose is lovely. Pretty hop forward, with some sweet mandarin citrus that I think is Centennial but I’m not sure. There’s also a bit of sweet caramel there too which is nice.

Hop character doesn’t come through so much on the taste. Taste is pretty sweet, with a bit of citrus hop bitterness on the attack, some really gorgeous toffee notes on the mid palate which go really nicely with the sort of mandarin flavour I get and then a nice, slightly bitter finish with a really tiny bit of smoke which is great.

I didn’t really believe the hype, but this lives up to it. This is a really excellent beer, I’m just sorry I didn’t try it fresher.

mattyhennessy (311) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - JAN 28, 2014
Very nice summer beer. A hoppy amber ale with strong citrus and toffee flavours. Good carbonation. Pours a deep amber with a slightly tan head. A very nice beer

Davros (1939) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 6, 2011
Pours deep ruby tinged copper with a lasting head. Nose shows a rich mix of hops and malt. Big piney, resinous, earthy and minty notes from the hops, while the malt adds prominent caramel, nutty and toasty characters. Very nice! Very similar hop profile as flavours, but in the way of malt only the nutty characters continue to stand out. Really needs more caramel to flesh it out. Body feels a little watery.

ShaneJ (514) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 20, 2014
Bottle from Plonk (Jan 2014). Dark reddish-amber, small tan head, rich toffee/caramel, citrus/grapefruit hops, thick, syrupy texture, long sweet finish. Nice.

lliams (196) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 8, 2013
Pours pretty much just, brown with a thin layer of bubbles on top. Aromatics leap out at ya! Herbs and grass- very nice ’green’ characters... Lots of fresh hops up front. Really leafy grassy hops with little bitterness. There’s a nice malt underpinning too- biscuity and persistant but soft. Altogether very approachable beer. I was hoping for a bit more intensity but still very good.

Dredd (689) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - MAY 8, 2013
Noice, very pleasing aroma which is quite grassy. Flavour is good mix of upfront sweet honey-ish malts that finishes with some almost chestnut characteristics. Finish is a good mid-length finish.
