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.

This one is strange. Simple and almost like a baked potato, corn, very ricey all in one. Earthy and nutty all while being on the light side. What?

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - JUN 16, 2009
Pours dark brown with a frothy beige head. Good roast caramel aroma with nut. Sweet smooth and creamy texture, possibly overly sweet. Not perfectly balanced but still a decent beer.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 14, 2009
Bottle from PPRBSG09. I dont know how or why I am the only person who is entering a rating of this? Pours a deep amber and a thin head. Aroma is leather, earthy, pretzel stick, and rye with a toasted pumpernickel bread- still a bit stale and dull overall. Rye, earthy flavors, leather, hints of metallci and a light grassy hop character in the end. Body is a bit weak. Ok.

yemenmocha (658) - Glendale, Arizona, USA - APR 25, 2009
Pours medium amber with off-white head. Nose has a nutty nougat-like characteristic. Medium bodied on the palate with a semi-sweet & soft brown ale flavor profile, with a buttered multigrain toast component on the finish.

vikingguy (794) - Chaska, Minnesota, USA - APR 20, 2009
Pours copper-red with a lot of carbonation and quick diminishing white head. A lot of caramel in the aroma. Pleasantly surprised by the flavor. Light caramel malt, toasted nuts with a good hop balance & slight hint of chocolate. This brew has a nice crispness which balances out the sweetness. Horay for the Wattle Seed!

lb4lb (2453) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 4, 2009
Pours a reddish color with a quickly diminishing beige head. Smells like Killians Irish Red with sticky, artificial caramel malt. Tastes pretty much the same with a good amount of heavy syrupyness and just a general artificial or unpleasant maltiness and slight bready toastiness. Body is medium with normal to slightly prickly carbonation. I didn’t care for the overly fake caramel syrup like malt character of this beer, and I get no unique flavors that I might want to attribute to whatever a "wattle seed" is.

angrypirate06 (1387) - Texas, USA - MAR 28, 2009
Bottle. Pours a ruby color with a small head. Smells of raisins and butter in addition to maple syrup and dark fruits. Taste is primarily buttery and syrupy, and almost a triscuit taste, with a watery mouthfeel and plenty of fizz.

bu11zeye (11933) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAR 11, 2009
(Bottle) Pours a clear amber body with a small off-white head. Aroma of cocoa, toffee, caramel, and toasted grain. Flavor of caramel malt, honey, cocoa, toasted grain, and cereal.

ClarkVV (3891) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 10, 2009
2008 bottle, early 2008 from Sunset Grill.
Large, force carbonated head is off-white and held by a clear dark golden body.
Pretty basic, rather clean amber ale, with light, fluffy floral/perfume notes from the yeast and hints of nutty, lightly biscuity notes on the end.
Surprisingly "fresh" in flavor, but the bottles were newly distributed and probably hadnt sat long in the warehouse. A lightly creamy mouthfeel supported no doubt by the proteins/starches of the wattle seed (and lack of age on the beer). Nuttiness abounds, with mineral water, light caramel and hints of doughiness. No hops or alcohol notes to be found here.
