Bottled, 375ml from Beers of Europe, Norfolk. Muddy brown with off white head. Initially there is a fairly chalky, malty note with caramel and some bitterness. This develops on to a light sweetness plus a little boiled vegetable, a hint of cabbage. Malty finish. It’s ok.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a dark hazy brown with short lasting tan head. Aroma of light malt and a touch of toffee. Taste of wheat, brown bread, and a hint of yeast sourness. Moderate body, a little watery on palate, moderately long soft bitter finish. A good sessional beer when lager is just too boring.

As far as commercial Aussie dark beers go, this is a solid drop. Nice dark rich color, pleasant drinking and a clean, soft taste. Perfect as a session beer on a winters evening down the pub....

Dark in colour but lacks character. Easy to drink but not to be savoured. Mild taste with some sediment.
