From a 355ml can. Pours a clear red/brown, tight white head, peppery hops flavours, hint of malt in the aroma, rich and full bodied. Quite good.

highlandlad (1416) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - JAN 21, 2014
May have been a problem batch. Signs of autolysis/yeast stress in the aroma. Pity because there was a lot to like if you could get beyond that. Copper with a lavish centimetre of foam showing good length. The herbal aroma is marred by a burnt rubber taint, as if you were sniffing a bottle of Orval that had been run over repeatedly by a car doing doughnuts. Nice chewy body. Toffee malts and spiced apples. Some passionfruit and grapefruit from Pacific NW hops. Definite potential if they sort out the brewing issue. (Wentworth Falls bottlo)

fletchfighters (1056) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 5, 2014
355 ML can Clear orange amber color, slightly off white head. Sticky lacing. Nose is spice, orange and grapefruit. Good dry hopping nose. Taste is spice, dusty orange and grapefruit with a decent caramel malt body. Malts dominate in the taste. Clean and crisp, very bready feel. Not real bitter though. Prickly carbonation and light bodied. Tastes a bit too commercial. Oh wait, it is pretty much a commercial brew pub. Sessionable but very uninspired

Davros (1893) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 8, 2013
Pours dark amber with a fading head. Nose shows some spicy and grapefruit-like hops along with a grainy malt character. Flavours include straw, popcorn, spicy hops, grainy malt and herbal notes. Pretty weird stuff there, a couple of big off-flavours.

LesArgen (199) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 12, 2013
Whoop. I think their marketing blurb of having added hops at every stage of the brewing process is true. There are so many hop flavours here it’s almost as if the hops are providing the body. As an amber ale, you’d have to say it’s a fail but as an overhopped American something something it’s pretty delicious. Very smooth, hides its alcohol well.

Floral hop aroma, light amber in colour with biscuits citrus and peppery flavours. Smooth texture and very sessionable considering the avb.

The best of the Australia brewery beers I’ve had, drank at Beer Cartel. Couldn’t rate on the day, but remember it being very hop dominated for an amber, as the name suggests. Still very malty as well, roasted and nutty characterists present, a bit of everything. Definitely the most character out of their canned beers.
