mattyhennessy (179) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - MAR 23, 2014
Pours a hazy amber orange with a white head. Sweet malt aromas with toffee and caramel mixed with floral hop flavours. Light bodied with good carbonation. Sweeness of the malt is balanced well with the lingering floral hop finish

Pours amber with a lasting off-white head, pleasant mild hoppy aroma, malt smoothness and flavours. Quite a nice drop, Iím surprised and impressed.

M_Sack (281) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 29, 2013
Tap @ brewery. Hazy amber with malt dominate aromas. Immediate strong malt followed by bitter hops with the malt beautifully blending into the background. Short finish but a powerful beer. Pick of the bunch I drunk at the brewery for a brewer who doesn't push the boundaries that modern day craft brewers do.

KeefOz (763) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - MAR 21, 2013
Poured a translucent golden amber colour with a one-finger creamy coloured foamy head that retained well and laced well. Moderate carbonation. Aroma mild of sweet malt. Taste fuller than aroma with slightly sweet malt followed by a dominating hops bitterness. Medium body. Long hops bitterness finish. More like an IPA

imaragingbull (565) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 23, 2013
Bottle. Pours deep orange with dense off white head and some light lacing. Light citrus and perfume floral hop aromas, lightly sweet malt toffee and grain. medium light chewy body, good malt character; toffee, caramel, figs, pitted fruit among a good citrus and floral hop character. Finish is grainy, lightly sweet and hoppy. A surprisingly good brew.

Bif (1303) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 28, 2012
Bottle- Pours a hazy amber color with a decent head that fades to some lacing. Aroma of citrus and pine with a bit of malt sweetness and a hint of chocolate. Taste of citrus with some caramel sweetness with a bit of chocolate and fruit in the background. Bitterness that lingers a bit and a fairly dry finish. Medium body, smooth and quite well balanced. Enjoyable beer that goes down easy. Nice beer for the style

330ml bottle. A decent beer, nothing special, but drinkable on hot day. with the added bonus of having some flavour.

Niksko (268) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 5, 2012
330ml bottle into a pint glass. 1cm of fine, creamy white head, disappearing slowly. Color is definitely not gold, but more of a cloudy golden brown. Aroma is very sweet, with floral notes. Mild attack with a syrupy mouth feel. Hints of toffee and chocolate on the mid palate, along with a bitter almost orange peel and capsicum flavor. The finish is quite bitter and very long. Overall, the beer is ruined by the lingering bitter finish. Perhaps I had a bad batch.

Sevenlee (1197) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - FEB 18, 2012
Pours a cloudy amber with a tiny off white head. Aroma is toffee with some fruity notes. Taste is a strange and unpleasant mixture of toffee, caramel and fruits. I donít usually really dislike a beer unless itís a boring pale lager but this taste and aroma just didnít do it for me.
