3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle; poured a deep caramel-amber color with a pretty small head. Aroma of caramel, very ripe fruit, lightly toasted bread, with some earth. Flavor had something unique to it, I guess from the seed. Still it was rather a mundane beer that had some caramel maltiness, but nothing great in terms of flavor. That being said, unoffensive and a decent sessional.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lots of malt in this beer. Some bread dough. Sweet with grain. A grittiness with some carob. Amber color. Pretty solid session beer, especially for $.79.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle:   Burnt caramel, quite translucent, no head, no lacing, this one appears as if its still.   Spicy nose, some honey, a little cereal and mash.   Blech, another average brew from Barons.   Definitely on the
malty side, minor sweetness, cereal, aformentioned honey.   Flat on the tongue, otherwise moderate body, albeit leaning towards the thin side.   Sweetness lingers, some honey, and again with the cereal.   Very mealy beers
they make.   What is Wattle Seed anyway?   Didnít seem to make for all that interesting of a beer.   Needs some hops to balance it out.   Ugh...

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The look is amber in color, clear, and has an off white head. The smell is caramel, malts, grains, floral, and very bready. The taste is a lot of bread, malts, and caramel. Better than I thought.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Polished brown ale with a thin, quickly dissolving white head. Spicy nose; Deep and somewhat complex flavor. Iím not sure what a wattle seed is, but the flavor is complex and pretty yummy. Itís not my favorite style of beer but itís entirely drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. A nutty red-brown, small beige head. Cereal malts, nuts and seed nose. Robust caramel and dull chocolate taste with interesting earthy nutty notes, presumably from the wattle. I was expecting either not to taste the exotic ingredient or for it to be some hideous novelty piece of Australiana - itís a pleasant surprise to find itís neither.
