3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Dan Murphy’s. Dark amber, solid malt aroma with good malt flavours and subtle bitterness. Not bad for a volume product, but not a stand out.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
(Bottle) Clear dark amber / light cola with no head. Aroma is faintly caramel with even fainter fruit or floral notes. Light body with good carbonation. Taste isn’t particularly nice - starts fairly ok with a thin dark toffee and raisins, but towards the end the taste becomes thinner and develops vegetable and faintly burnt notes. Not to my taste.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Murky brown pour with low carbonation. Aroma of toffee with some citrus & floral notes from the hops. Taste is light caramel, raisins, grapefruit. Not bad but a bit thin and middle of the road. A bit like a watered down barley wine.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle - pours deep copper with very little head. Caramel malt and sweet raisin aroma. Burnt sugar and caramel on the taste with a dry finish. Mouthfeel is a bit thin.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear dark amber-brown with some copper-red highlights and a small off-white head. Aromas are pretty light but pick up some caramel, apple and a floral note. Taste is dominated by dark fruits, particularly raisins, some fresh plum and rich malt. Medium bodied but finishes quite short, with a sweetly fruity aftertaste. Not bad at all but could do with a bit more cowbell.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured a hazy coppery brown colour with only a few bubbles for a head. Laced poorly. Low carbonation. Aroma dominated by sweetish malt but also with a trace of yeast. Taste initially sweet caramel with a trace of roasted malt followed by a nice mild hops bitterness. Light body. Detracting from the overall quality was quite an acidic/bitter finish.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
4pack from 1st choice liquor, lovely amber colour, good lacing, i’ts quite smooth, but I think it’s more a entry level ale

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a ruddy amber with good clarity and medium, tight carbonation. The head a sheen of off-white foam, compact and well held. The nose has bitter sweet toffee praline, yeast and bread dough, stewed banana and salted peanut - weird. The head offers up a creaminess to the palate. On the sweeter side it is quite biscuity, nutty with a roasted malt backend that clashes some low, dusty hops and over-brewed tea. Sweet, mildly astringent finish. The body on the lighter side a plus. A little too sweet for me without too much definition. The 2012 Pale Ale was a winner so this one unfortunately just sits in the shadows.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
330ml bottle from First Choice Liquor. Deep dark copper colour that borders on being red. Thick full cap of light brown foam makes a fairly good head. Strong a lot aroma with a thick malt flavour that backs it up. Probably the best of the Endeavour beers that I have had.
