3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at the Local Taphouse, Darlinghurst. Pours a deep red, with a small head. Aroma is quite biscuity, light berry as well. Flavours were quite few and far between, with mainly biscuity/bready malt with a tangy raspberry bitter finish. Not a lot going on with this one, one of the few bridge rd beers that i’ve tried that i havent enjoyed.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours hazy red/amber with off white head. Biscuity malt nose, no real hop aroma. Flavour has a biscuity malt body and very mild bitterness. There is an odd sourness - seems odd for a red ale. Quite pedestrian.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Gushed a bit. Deep red with an inch of beige head. Aroma has a mixture of dark sugars and a little grass. Taste is fairly sweet with quite a lot of bite from the high remaining carbonation. Fizzy palate improves a little with a swirl, but this is still pretty dull.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark caramel / red colour. Nice thick beige head that dissapears quite quickly. Strong aroma of toffee or caramel. Not as creamy as I expected but still quite plesant. Definite roasted toffee flavour with a sweet, almost fruity after taste that seems to cling to the top of the mouth. Not a bad drop.

Tap. Sweet and nice. Aromas of roasted malt, and cola. Flavour is sweet, with light bitterness, and it has good length. Palate is velvety, and medium-bodied. Amber colour, with a frothy long-lasting head.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a deep amber hue with fizzy head. Nose is unique malt, although not too interesting. In the mouth it is a little thin but has a unique character. Didn’t really agree with me.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours hazy reddish brown a bubbly light tan head. Aroma has notes of toffee, malt, apple and berries. Flavour is similar, though less sweet, and has more emphasis on the malt and less fruit. Dry and highly carbonated with a dry, bitter finish. Not too bad but not particularly memorable either.
