3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Slightly hazy amber with slight head. Pleasant subtle aroma - chocolate, vanilla, hint of orange. Medium body, bright carbonation. Interesting flavour with lots going. Rich chocolate and tangy fruit with pleasant spicy hop notes all of which fall off abruptly to a long finish of slight hoppy bitterness and dark chocolate and coffee hints.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - Pours dark amber with a thin white head. Choc and caramel in the aroma with a hint of spice. Flavours take a while to develop but are light and sprizty up front but then develop into a dry choc malt flavour with a burnt caramel lingering finish.

A good amber ale, one of the better Aussie versions of the style. Has a good malt flavour, but finishes nice and dry. the hops are present but not overpowering. A good beer!
