Reddish amber appearance. Some yeast left in the bottle. Crystal malt flavour, rather clean, medium bodied, bitter finish. A tasty, drinkable ale, very much reminding of an American amber ale.

On tap at the White Horse, Parsons Green. Very hazy dark amber beer. Residual white head. Light dry palate that’s also softish. Soft creamy malt with a spot of tea. Tiny bit of orange hop. Minerals. Soft dry finish and a bitterish aftertaste. Drinkable.

Hazy light amber. Earthy aroma with a light citrus accent. Some nice fruity notes, light earthiness as well from oxidation. OK.

GT2 (8671) - San Diego County, California, USA - NOV 16, 2010
355mL. Pours a clear to hazy amber with a medium, thick, rocky, yellow head with excellent retention and 360 sheety lace. Aroma is very rich platanos maduros, caramelized banana, old cantaloupe.Taste is old toffee, drying hops, grassy hops. Slightly medicinal like trying swallow a nasty pill and failing to get it down. Dry, nutty bitter palate moving to a bit suddy. No brewing flaws but very odd. Hard to love. Fairly bland.

I really liked this. Very balanced, good aromas and flavours of malt with a little fruit. I think this and Squiers amber are my two favourite Aussie bottled ales (although they are quite different from one another).

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2003 Very nice malty aroma, and a very good malty, citrus, fruity and biscuity middle, good hoppiness on the finish. OK.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUN 21, 2010
Bottle @ Beerfest Asia Singapore. Dark gold with lasting head. Smells like chewy malts. Has a medium body. Flavors are not at all what I expected. Is balanced but dull, unexciting, and muddled. Maybe there is a freshness issue? Will revisit.

Pours a dark coppery colour with a small head. Leaves a long lasting aftertaste in the mouth. Good bitterness with hoppy aroma.

Bottle; didn’t realize this was anything other than a pale lager/blond ale until I poured the bottle. Lightish bronze in color with a compact, but small, off white head. Aroma of bread, toffee, toasted malt, earth, flowers and herbs. Very toffeeish and herbal in the flavor. Pretty dry. Nice balance, with a slightly more pronounced malt presence. One of the better examples of the style that I have had.
