I bit thin for me, but something about the flavor makes me want to try one with a crisp green salad. I’ve never had that thought before while drinking berr.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
11.2 oz bottle shared with rebelbeerguy purchased at Oak Tree. Starts off with a lousy looking pour with a bubbly clear orange body and a tiny bubbly head that disappeared quicker then a plate of cookies at a weight watchers meeting. Aroma was constantly changing with every few sniffs and runs the gambit from sweet and inviting to oh my god did something die in the bottle. Seriously I had hints of everything from white grapes, honey, molasses, caramek, wet hay, wet grass, chocolate, citrus and brown sugar. Flavor was just plain bad, chocolate and grain. Not sure what a wattle seed is but I know if I see it used as an ingredient in something I ainít buying it.

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 didnít 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.

Really, really didnít enjoy this. Maybe the Wattle did something to this, but I had trouble finishing it. Smooth, but lots of horrible dark flavours protruding. Next

Bottle, Cellarbrations, Bull creek, WA
Pleasant malty pale ale tyle nose, on a rather darker pour, slight off whitle head. Palate is slick and reminiscent of a lactose addition or poor attenuation, with a hint of rastiness. The slickness is a real turn off.

iím not a big fan of wattle seed and definately not in my beer. Itís just not a good match in my opinion. But if you like wattle seed and beer you might fancy this drop.

Pours a kind of sad looking watery brown with an off white head and a bit of carbonation. Smell is a little nutty with some decent malt characteristics. I must not like wattle seeds though because the flavor started as interesting and then quickly degraded into undrinkable as the beer warmed. This was a sink pour unfortunately.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
The appearance is glassy brownish red, like mahogany or cherry. Two big puffyfingers of head. Not bad-looking at all.
The aroma of cooked vegetables with the underbelly of an ale. Cigarette ashes. Bad.
Sweet English-style ale flavor. Brown sugar. English ale yeast. Some toffee and molasses. Like a sweeter version of Bass, but with broiled broccoli.
The feel is a typical chewy ale. The beer is overall not a very good beer. Wattle seeds arenít great. Has potential but there is something foul and nasty in it.
