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.

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.

Braudog (5903) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, 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)

PorterPounder (5709) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 9, 2007
Tallahassee, Fl. - Publix Supermarkets - 12 oz bottle. Pours a medium copper that sports a somewhat quickly fading off-white head. Pleasant, earthy aroma with hints of mild licorice, bakerís chocolate. Nutty flavor, some earthiness, caramel, and just a hint of chocolate. Mouthfeel is on the thin side - but crisp enough. Pleasantly suprised - glad, because I bought a whole six!

Cornfield (5552) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 9, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2008 Personal Milestone: My First Wattle Seed Ale Rating (out of 4040)!!!!!
My dictionary informs me that a Wattle is an Australian Acacia. Never had an Acacia seed before, either, that Iím aware of. The bodyís a deep copper color and itís capped by a modest ecru head. The aroma holds some caramel, a bit of dry chocolate, and corncob. Very smooth with a thick wheaty creaminess. The flavor has a tad more chocolate and a very light mint taste that lasts long into the finish. Pretty decent. I think Iíll plant a Wattle in my yard.
