Deep amber with a medium white head. Nice aroma of caramel, brown sugar, fruits and hops. Tastes medium bitter, with lot of fruit, caramel malts and hops. Very hoppy for its style, a very original beer, born from an amber ale and an IPA. Very tasty.

On tap at Mill on Constance, Fortitude Valley (charity event for brewers’ kettle explosion). Pours ruby red with nice frothy head. An excellent mix of bitter and sweet notes on the nose and the palate. My kind of beer, it’s a meal in a glass. Hang in there fine Gents!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear deep nutty color with a thich tan head. Nice lacing. Powerful aroma and flavor in this one. Lots of grapefruit, bready and fruity. Maybe a bit to sweet for my likings. Still a decent and powerful ale.

Aroma is of sweet apples and brown sugar. Flavour retains the brown sugar but adds the perfect balance of bitterness. The mouthfeel is round and substantial.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is boozy and malty. Not much hop aroma coming through - maybe the bottles a little old. Looks a beautiful clear red in glass. Taste is biscuity, boozy and grassy bitter; not particularly hop flavoured. Finish is medium with low carbonation. A good drop but I prefer a slightly lower ABV, less bitter in a Amber/red coloured Ale
