3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

A dusty, nutty, sweet aroma gives way to similar flavours on the palate. Thereís also a nice hippy bite in the mouth, but the sweet aftertaste is a bit much for me.

Pours hazy red with dense off white foamy head. Aromas of nutty malts, fresh wort, grain grass and citrus. Med body, light hop character balanced bitterness with a burnt toffee crisp malt character finishing nutty sweet and near chalky.

Tap at Mrs Parmas. Poured a nice copper with a small off white head. Nose doesn't give off too much - caramel grapefruit hops. Taste is much better. Heaps of caramel, grapefruit and biscuit malt back bone. The grapefruit bitterness lasts nicely. Very malt driven. This a great amber really fresh too!

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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 Iím not sure. Thereís also a bit of sweet caramel there too which is nice.
Hop character doesnít 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 didnít really believe the hype, but this lives up to it. This is a really excellent beer, Iím just sorry I didnít try it fresher.
