Brewed for Barons Brewing by AIB

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.

Ernest (7362) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 21, 2008
Bottle (BB Apr/08). Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium to dark amber. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted grain, nuts, cookie), lightly hoppy (herbs, apricot), with a light note of gum. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Rather nondescript; an ordinary amber ale. Ok.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 24, 2008
Transparent copper amber color with a thin ring of off-white head. Has a lightly sweet caramely nose with a hint of milk chocolate. Body starts with decent fullness and subtle sweet toasty caramel and mild bready notes. FInishes drier, and mildly peppery with some bittersweetness. An interesting and palatable brew.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2010
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?   Didn’t seem to make for all that interesting of a beer.   Needs some hops to balance it out.   Ugh...

Strykzone (6760) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - DEC 2, 2007
Aroma jumps out of the glass. It is rich sweet caramel malt and smell delicious. Dark fruit also abounds. Flavor is not so robust. It is of spice, vanilla, and has an underlying sweetness. Feel is thin but oily. Aroma and appearance are the highlights of this beer but it does offer some nice flavor and is one of the better spice beers I have had.

AmEricanbrew (6737) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - AUG 22, 2008
Clear amber with a tight head. Mildly sweet honey caramel aroma. Medium body. Decent flavors are mildly sweet pale malts with an earthy bitter grain flavor from the wattle seed i presume. A good hot weather brew.

blutt59 (6511) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 18, 2008
bottle, slightly darker than an amber ale, nose and flavors are nutty, woody, malts with some dark roast character as well, better than expected

Braudog (6379) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - APR 27, 2008
Bottle. Poured a reddish brown, yet light, clear and transluscent. The aroma is almost nutty, lightly carameled. It drinks with a moderately sweet roast, and a hard-to-peg herbalness. Quaffable. (#3438, 4/27/2008)
