COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed for Barons Brewing by AIB
http://www.baronsbrewing.com

The first beer released is the Wattle Seed Ale, which starts with a blend of Australian and European malts, creating a rich flavour base of caramel with a hint of chocolate. The smooth malt flavours are lightly hopped and then infused with roasted Wattle Seed, bringing a unique and authentic Australian flavour to this fine red ale. The result is an outstanding ale that boasts a smooth taste profile balancing its robust character, an ultimately rewarding yet distinctive beer. Native Range. Formerly Barons Black Wattle Superior Wattle Seed Ale.

hopscotch (9163) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 6, 2007
Bottle… Mostly clear, orange ale with a small, fizzy, white head. Decent retention. Light molasses, dates, big-time figs and other dark, menacing things in the nose. The flavor is of dark fruits and light sorghum molasses with an unidentified spice (probably wattle seed). Sweet and chewy with moderate acidity and mild bitterness. Medium-bodied with lively carbonation. Tangy, dark fruit, abrasive finish.

355 simply guised as Baron’s Black Wattle Original Ale. (new entry?) Pour is clear red with a yellowish, creamy head. Pretty fizzy. Good retention and little to no lace. Aroma is roasted nuts, brown sugar, cinnamon, almonds. Taste is rich, roasted walnuts, chestnuts, some slight chemicals, vanilla extract. Palate is a bit oily to numbing.

JoeMcPhee (8410) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2007
Tap at HDG. Brown coloured beer with a sweet malty aroma. Light caramelly backing notes. Toasted malt, brown sugar and a touch of maple sweetness. Nice caramelly maltiness. Fairly sweet with a bit of herbal bitterness. Malts seem decocted and have a vaguely dunkel-ish quality to them that is tough to describe. Nutty finish. Decent brew.

Rune (8065) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 2, 2008
330ml bottle purchased at the Fine Food Store at Kastrup Airport. Deep, red-brown body with a fawn head quickly diminishing. Spicy-malty smell. Herbal vegetables (wattle Seed?) in flavour added by lightly roasted grain, some sweetness and malty aftertones. Dusty and rounded mouthfeel. Alright (02.02.2008).
