COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
AKA - the satisfier (in the beer sense!), a character filled American style brown ale. When you indulge in a Growler, you will experience complex buiscuity and malt qualities, with hints of dark fruit aroma. The Growler has a rich brown colour with a medium body - satisfy yourself with one of these.

Muggus69 (1139) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JUL 17, 2014
Bottle, Earl’s Juke Joint, Newtown, Sydney Dark brown body, pours a dense off-white foam. Nice nose of nutty, biscuity malts with notes of chocolate & hop citrus. Medium body, nice chewy malt texture, reasonably lively carbonation. Palate delivers plenty of malt; biscuit, toasted nuts, cocoa with hop citrus and woody spice. Good bitterness on a dry finish. Tasty stuff!

mattyhennessy (269) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - MAY 5, 2014
Pours a murky brown with a tan head. Roasty aroma with some caramel and cocoa. Surprisingly mild flavour, mostly of roasted grains, toffee and chocolate. A decent, but not spectacular brown ale.

bottle from nirvana liquors, bondi beach. light brown with a bit of murk and a slim head; plenty of caramel in the aroma with generic citric hops; low carbonation; light bitterness, cookie dough. seems a bit subdued for a beer called growler

Niksko (312) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 17, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2014 330ml bottle.

Pours dark brown with a finger of tan head.

Nose is brown sugar, caramel. toffee, raisins.

Flavour is pretty muted. Slight smoke and caramel on the mid palate, and a sweet and slightly watery finish with a bit of toast and a hint of citrus and hoppiness.

Medium bodied with a slightly watery mouthfeel.

If this tasted as good as it smells it would be a really excellent beer, but sadly it’s somewhat lacking.

Update: I went to the brewery last week and had this on tap. COMPLETELY DIFFERENT. I’m not sure if it was the freshness or if they’ve changed up the recipe, but there was much more hop character in the flavor, and the balance between sweetness and hops was perfect. I also don’t remember it being watery.

muffel (130) - Lower Saxony, GERMANY - APR 24, 2013
On tap at Young and Jacksons in Melbourne. Dark brown with small white head. Leaves some lacing. Low carbonation and rather thin body. Malty with hints of fruits, but somewhat watery mouth feel. Drinkable, nothing too special.

Rangi (557) - NEW ZEALAND - JAN 27, 2013
Tasty sessionable beer. Had a few times at the lucky coq. Poors a pleasant brown, clear, minimal head. First up and after every sip there is a sharp malty slightly fruity sharpness. Find it interesting and tasty. Easy to drink without becoming to bland or a good one to throw in the mix when your getting tiered of the pints of pale lager. Good effort.

barakihunter (187) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - NOV 9, 2012
Not much in the aroma, appearance is a deep brown with an off-white head. Taste is good, definitely what makes this beer, I get fruity and floral notes, some nutty flavour and feel and a touch of sweetness. Palate is simple but warm and rounds off the taste well, a beer with a good finish.
