COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
Brewed with choice malts and an extended top fermentation. This naturally conditioned ale experiences interactions between the robust malt, hop and yeast characteristics, to exhibit an intriguing journey of flavour development over a period of five years when stored under cellar conditions.

2008 bottle consumed on 5/17/13 - Pours dark amber with dark, chunky suspended yeast. It smells of caramel and dark fruit. The flavor is sweet with obvious caramel and a slight hint of the dark fruit I was smelling. Itís medium to full bodied and lightly carbonated. Iíd say itís holding up pretty well after five years. While this is a good beer, itís not great and itís no Thomas Hardy. Personally I donít find it worth aging for years.

Bottle from Plonk (2013 vintage). Dark amber/brown, strong malt characters, some alcohol evident, earthy, rich caramel/butterscotch, quite bitter without much hop aroma or flavour. Ok.

Jado (582) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - AUG 24, 2013
From 345 ml bottle. Pours a clear chestnut brown with a small cream head and lively carbonation. Aromas of pine, noble hops, lemon, flowers and caramel. The taste starts with fresh fruit (plum or fig?) before a restrained hop bitterness comes in, adding some pine notes. Bitter lemony finish with a spicy aftertaste. Enjoyed this.

Good quality ale - very English style so more malt than hops. Iím into APA hop bombs so am not enamoured with this style and my points reflect that.

Stunning beer from the Masters of Oz Brewing. Rich, full, delicious-would hold its own against any top Belgian or USA counterparts. Best beer in the country-only observation is it hits you like a jackhammer, seems to be stronger than 7.5%!

355ml bottle. Clear orange-brown amber colour, foam white head and aroma of malt & light citrus hop. Taste is malt caramel with toffee, tangy citrus orange and a spicy hop bitterness, plus earthy warming alcohol notes. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry bitter finish. Quite drinkable.
