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.

When in Adelaide drink Coopers... because thats all there is! I'm just kidding but it was definately nice to see some quaility beer on tap in this part of Oz. The bartender suggested I give it a try and I was very pleased. It is slight sweet with a nice creamy texture.

12 oz bottle-pours a cloudy golden orange with a huge rocky head with tight carbonation. sour aroma of broken down malts and apple notes. slight soap on the aroma also. To much carbonation. weak palate that was very fizzy. Thanks BBB63 for the bottle.

2000 Vintage from Whaleman 2004: Poured with a big fluffy white head. Amber colored. Caramel apple aroma. Malty flavor with more apple. Big carbonation. Okay.

Ida7999 (105) - Milford, Massachusetts, USA - APR 9, 2004
very cloudy, orange-amber color, short head that quickly dissipates, fairly large chunks of sediment, some definite fruit aromas, light hints of alcohol, maybe some vanilla, toasted malt, whiffs of leafy hops; flavor has a rich sweetness-but not overpowering, fruity, toasted malt, dry-bitter-alcohol finish, alcohol is blended fairly well, some hop flavor, molasses and vanilla, smooth and easy to sip

Strong roasted malt with some light caramel and brown sugar giving just a touch of sweetness. Alcohol made itself known as well.

amx1970390 (480) - Southampton, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 24, 2004
Batch #4 oct/2002. I was hoping for a "fullers vintage" type beer, but. Aroma is dusty and salty. Hazy orange with a tremendous anout of suspended particle. It almost looks like Jello with "bits" in it. Flavor is quite fruity but has a watery finish. It lacks depth of flavor.

bsour (78) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 10, 2004
Batch 4-OCT/2002 Dark orange with a reddish tint. Good head that settled to a thin layer. Some lacing down the glass. Large bits of sediment floating in the glass. I should have read the bottle closer. I didn't realize it was bottle conditioned. Nice orange/citrus flavor with a hint of nuttiness. Decent mouth-feel but could have done without with the floaties.

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 9, 2004
Batch 4-OCT/2002: Great deep tangerine, amber hue. Fruity nose. Small quickly dissipating head. A pleasant dustiness, sweet ripe orange, very effervescent, estery, passion fruit, light to medium bodied, nice mouthfeel, sweet, white pepper, finishing with faint earthen hops. A reasonably quaffable brew, with well hidden alcohol.

SiddFinch (155) - Pen Argyl, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 1, 2004
Batch 4 Oct/2002 – There’s big chunks floating in this! Orange dominates the taste. Also, bready (like a barleywine) but very mellow. Very little alcohol presence. This is like a half and half using a mellow barleywine and an English Ale. This is awesome.
