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.

Bottle. Pours clear brown with a small, frothy, off-white head, lasting with spare lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (bread, nutty), light hops (grass), average yeast (earth, leaves) with notes of apple and tea. Light bodied, thin texture, average carbonation, and a chalky finish. Long duration, moderate sweetness, light acidity and bitterness.

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.

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.

ApisAles (1576) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - JUL 10, 2008
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.

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.
