mullet (849) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 5, 2006
3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Filtered copper, nice thin head. Not entirely dissimilar to Anchor Steam in terms of malt character; toasty, bread crust, Vienna-style stuff, with a touch of chocolate Big M, eggs and artificial raspberry. Quite a nice, soft mouthfeel but there’s some kind of a weird twang at the end which I can’t really explain. Slightly sugary sweetness, toasty malts with a touch of something roasted. No real hop character until a slightly bitter finish. Enjoyable, but simple. I dunno what wattle seeds taste like but I couldn’t detect anything all that different.

Bottle. Brewed with roasted Wattle seed, which was quite nteresting to know, yet the beer is fairly standard, yet quite tasty. Touches of sweet caramel and nuts, slightly roasty characters. Reminded me of Tooheys Old a little bit.
