UPDATED: AUG 7, 2010 Tap. Tasty beer. Aromas of roasted caramel, and cola. Flavour is sweet, and it has good length. Palate is oily, and it has a medium body. Orange colour, with a thin and frothy white head.

BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 8, 2009
Bottle. Pours clear amber with a quickly disappearing off-white head. Aroma is quite malty with notes of caramel, brown sugar and some fruity hops. Flavour pretty much mirrors the aroma but is fairly heavy on the malt / caramel . Smooth, slightly oily mouthfeel with moderate carbonation and a long, bitter finish. Not a bad beer overall but I can imagine that the caramely malt might get to be a bit much after a while.

hawthorne00 (2375) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 28, 2009
Bottle. Slightly muddy amber, rapidly dissipating light-beige head. Somewhat earthy aroma, with some toasted caramel and fruit malts. Slightly resiny hops, too. Taste is fruity and mildly sweet, body medium. Finish is quite dry and slightly excessively carbonated.

jonno (2275) - JAPAN - NOV 22, 2009
Bottle. Caramel and dough on the nose. In the mouth carbonated and again lots of caramel and full bodied for the style. A bit boring and nothing I would go for again.

Dervock (441) - Emu plains, AUSTRALIA - JUL 30, 2009

mkel07 (3141) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAR 28, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2010 330ml bottle. Dark to medium dark gold colour with an even layer of bone coloured foam. Not a lot in the aroma, some caramel malt maybe. Mild to medium biterness that is nice and smooth on the palate with some biscuity flavours.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 23, 2008
Bottle. Fruity hops and grainy malt mingle in the nose. Wonderfully fruity and juicy on the palate, the malt is toffeeish. The bitter finish is just a bit metallic though.

alexanderj (3299) - Branson, Missouri, USA - OCT 2, 2008
Bottle from my brother; poured an amber color with a white, somewhat milky head. Aroma of nuts, caramel, fruit and some unexpected banana. A good amount of carbonation on the palate. Flavor was a little dicey to begin with; got better with a few tastes. Some toffee, fruit, grass and some weird herbal? elements at the end. Wasn’t too easy to drink. Not a great beer.

UnholyBrewing (595) - Central Florida(Upper Hell), Florida, USA - JUN 5, 2008
...bottle. Nice flavor, good water, and interesting hops. The hop notes are not typical, and actually add alot to this brew. Medium body, smooth on the palate, with hints of fruit. Goes down well, but overpriced.

Labarde (22) - AUSTRALIA - APR 26, 2008
330ml bottle. The Gippsland Gold poured a medium amber colour with a fair, slightly off-white head that dissipated quite quickly. Aroma was hoppy and fruity, with hints of banana and caramel. The taste was malty with a toffee type sweetness. It also had some fruity notes. Creamy mouthfeel with small, tight bubbles and a lingering bitterness. Very easy to drink.
