3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a growler at Warners on the Bay. Apparently it’s a dark pilsner, pours almost black with a tan head, the hops flavour kicks in after the rich roasted malt. I liked it.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Scratch Bar. Rating from April 2014. There are hints of smokiness that gets in your nose and throat and the beers pours a dark brown colour.

Confusing, but not a bad drop. The nose convinces you you’re about to drop into a double IPA, whilst the colour is saying malt, malt. Well, a bit of both don’t hurt. On tap at the Wheaty.

Not much on the aroma but looks good. Taste and palate lacking, slight roast but then has a wet cardboard finish. Average.

Had on tap at Murrays bar in Manly. A very nice and enjoyable beer. Not a session beer, but still a good beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Beer Deluxe. Pours a dark black with a two finger creamy tan head. Aroma is hoppy, with a slight smoky note. Flavour is slightly sweet, orange peel, hops, peach, and a mild bitter finish. Not bad, but a little generic. Also, it’s more of a black IPA than a pilsener.

Draught at Murray’s a Manly. Pours black with a medium white head. Smells of grass and citrus hops. Tastes of medium sweetness, medium bitter and large grassy component. Light-medium bodied, light carbonation, oily texture. Pleasant and refreshing.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Josie bones. Amazing aroma, smells like a pilsener but doesn’t look like one. Very spicy aroma, black malts make for some nice coffee flavors and finishes with a nice sweetness and some good bitterness.
