Westkyoto77 (530) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 2, 2013
Bottle. Dark-copper ale, decent white head. A little flat and metallic in the mouth but soon replaced by smooth butterscotch and good bitterness. Slightly sweet aftertaste, but not cloying. Nothing sensational, but nothing really awful either. Pretty good.

imaragingbull (572) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 23, 2013
Pours near clear light hazed orange gold with off white head. Caramel malt toffee, light butterscotch, floral herbal hop aromas, grainy, mineral earthen yeast character. Light medium body, nice toffee notes balanced on a floral herbal hop character. Finishes grainy lightly bitter and satisfying lightly sweet.

Bif (1504) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 31, 2012
On tap at the Brewery. Pours a dark copper color with a decent head that fades to some lacing. Aroma of pine, some malt sweetness and a bit of fruit. Tatse of malt with a bit of caramel, some fruit and trace of grain. Easy bitterness and a dry finish. Fairly medium body, mild crispness, smooth with a nice balance. Nice beer for the style that goes down easy. Worth a try.

BlackHaddock (3905) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2012
Brown 330ml bottle, best before June 2011, drank 1st June 2010. Poured into a Batemans half pint tumbler. Good old gold, rusty amber colour the head a dirty yellowed smokers fingered nicotine colour. The smell was all malt, fairly sweet malts at that, caramel and molasses. A yeast aroma becomes apparent as the beer warms in the glass, but no hop esters at all. The sweetness from the smell isn’t allowed to take over the taste, a hop bitterness sees to that, so no aroma hops, just bitter acid producing plants used? The best Aussie beer I’ve had since arriving on BA/RB? I think so, full bodied and interesting flavours made this a very drinkable little bottle.

johndoughty (4001) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2012
Bottle. Orange with a small head. Slightly tinny even though it was in a bottle which is a bit worrying.Some fruitiness and a presence of bitter. Taste like it should be a supermarkets budget price tin can. Definitely not for me.

floydian1 (1007) - FNQ, Australia, - DEC 28, 2011
330ml bottle. Appears translucent dark amber with a medium cream-white head that dissipates to a lasting collar that provides a soapy lace. No strong aromas but what I got included caramel, butter, vanilla, orange and flowery hops. Taste is butterscotch malts balanced by a decent hop bitterness. Palate is medium-light bodied with a creamy texture and low carbonation. This is a well made sessionable English-style pale ale.

jestersdarts (5) - , AUSTRALIA - APR 30, 2011 does not count
A thin pale ale, little to no aroma, malty, fine carbonation. Pleasing enough, but not too exciting.

ALLOVATE (2437) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 8, 2011
A bottle I’ve had lying about for around a year or so now.
Cool but not cold and into a Pilsner glass. Bright, orange copper body. Big, big, rocky white crown is ever-growing fuelled by a lot of fine carbonation. Looks good, the head needs to be chewed off to get to the beer though. Molten toffee nose with hints of candied almond praline and marzipan, a little unexpected. Sweet start, toffeeish, with a descent malty mid-palate and mildly spicy back-end. Light in body and rather flaccid in mouthfeel. Rough, weedy swallow with a little tree-bark and peanut peelings lingering shortly. Not much here, too shy on flavour but what it does have isn’t too pleasing. One for the re-rate bin!

crispi (106) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 8, 2011
Bottle. Cold from fridge. Served into a snifter. Light ruby amber. Some essence of apricots. Not too hopped.

rlgk (11036) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - DEC 11, 2010
Draught at Monks, Sveavägen, Stockholm. Amber/orange color, small head. Candy aroma, sweetish, toffee, vinegar notes. Malty flavor, sourish notes. Buitter, some hops. Vinous, maybe about to get old?
