2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A clean taste it is, maybe a little too clean. Hardly any aroma, lightly metallic, ugly beer apart from the head.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2012 Tasting from August 2011.
Pours a bright orange and settles to appear almost still. Head goes up and then goes down leaving but a ring of white atop. Honey, pear drops, under-ripe melon and toffee on the nose, quite sweet, with a touch of salted roasted nuts and pinewood. Similarly sweet in the mouth. A lot of crystal malt gives it a sticky golden syrup, Anzac biscuit, praline-like taste with little to balance it. There is grainy, bready hint mid-palate and tangy marmalade in back with a hint of burnt sugar in the swallow. Body is light but it becomes cumbersome as it warms. Lacks balance.
