COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This 2010 Vintage bottle-conditioned Amber Ale is full amber red in colour with copper hues. A rich, full bouquet with toast, lively cinnamon spice and a hint of bitter chocolate. Lifted gamey characters infused by sweetly spiced, herbal resinous characters. Full fruit weight is balanced by a creamy malty mid palate and an assertive drying bitterness. The back palate is all spice and cocoa with a refreshing zip. A true Amber ale – very age worthy.

330ml bottle. Pours amber-brown with a small off-white head. Rich toasted malt aromas with hints of burnt sugar and bitter oranges. Flavour is nicely balanced between the complex sweetish dark malt base and the bitter dry resinous hop finish. Medium bodied with a lowish carbonation and creamy texture. Quaffable. Very nice.

Pyobon (972) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 8, 2011
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.

Dervock (503) - Emu plains, AUSTRALIA - OCT 16, 2011
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!
