3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fizzy, off-white head with a clear amber colored body. Aromas of sweet malts and some soy sauce. Taste of sweet barely that is easy to sip. A bit biscuity. I don’t know what a wattle seed is or tastes like, but this beer reminds me of Fat Tire. Fizzy mouth with the viscosity of water.

bottled. copperish with a slim head. decent aroma of toffee with a light grassiness. quite firm, hints of cocoa powder and reasonably bitter finish. couldn’t really notice the wattle seed but that’s probably a good thing

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours brown with a thin head. Sweet malt aroma with toasted grain. The flavor is sweet and almost bready, with caramel, toast, and a hint of earthiness. I expected this to be a trainwreck but it was actually pretty good and very drinkable.
