Bottle, new to the USA. Pours almost brown with a small head. Aroma is toasty and astringent. Taste is chocolaty and sweet with a decent bitterness. This shit ain’t all that bad.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle 33 cl) Courtesy of highlandlad. Clear, amber golden with a small, off-white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Sweetish notes of roasted malt. Medium body, roasted malts and caramel. An edge of elderberry. The finish is dry. Not too bad. 200507

330ml bottle - good brown ale colouring. Caramel malty aroma - quite pleasant. Quite strong almost a medicinal start, smooths our towards the end of the palate. Distinctive and unusual nuttyfinish with nice malt tones throughout too. Reasonably ok....!!!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From 33 cL bottle. Aroma is malty with a mild bitterness. Flavour is malty with a vague bitterness, nutty and berry flavour. Dry nutty and berry finish. Clearly a different note from the wattle.

Bottled. A nut-brown beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet malty and very fruity combined with some notes of berries on a underlying note of caramel. The flavor is sweet caramelic combined with light notes of berries - reminding me of sloe berries, leading to a lightly bitter end where the notes of sloe berries lingers around. I wonder if the sloe berry notes I pick up actually are the Wattle seeds. Thanks to Papsoe for sharing.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear reddy brown body with an off-white head. Malty aroma, a little bit like burnt caramel, backed by herbal hops. Taste is the same, smooth, medium body and reminds me a little of a well made english bitter.

bottled. copperish with a slim head. decent aroma of toffee with a light grassiness. quite firm, hints of cocoa powder and reasonably bitter finish. couldn’t really notice the wattle seed but that’s probably a good thing

My apprehensions about what the "wattle seed" bit was about (having been dudded by the likes of Beez Nees honey beer and an attrocious "chili" beer bought at the dire street market in Hobart) were quickly dispersed. A solid copper ale with lovely malts. I don’t know what they’re going on about with the wattle seed bit. A beer like this would benefit from not having any faddish spin.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
In the bottle from the Potters Hotel bottleshop. Dark copper in colorwith a large ivory head that is very fluffy. Awesome retention. Has a nutty green pistachio like aroma. Is this what flax seed tastes like? I sure don’t know. The flavor is really thick and delicious- strong toasted caramel nuts. Does not have the usual "nut brown" flavor profile. Alcohol seems to be discernable. Underpinning of roasted sweet fruits. This is an underappreciated complex beer.
