Nice copper hue. Underlying run of vanilla beans and sweet malts. Low carbonation. Not bad.

Poured a clear coppery amber colour with a thin white foam head that retained reasonably well and gave OK lacing. Sweet aroma. Sweetness dominates the taste and after-taste. Palate is smooth. Light body. Short, soft, sweet finish. The more I drank the sweeter the beer became - a bit too sweet.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
330ml bottle. Dark golden in colour. Thin white head. Pleasing taste, not overpowering in malt or hops. Nothing special but drinkable.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours clear copper gold with minor white head but decent lace. Sweet aromas - toffee, biscuit and grainy hay malt characteristics. Weird mouthfeel and flavour - oily, sweet biscuit toasted grains, cordial, dish detergent and jelly. Vegetable soapy flavours linger through the finish which is somewhat artificially semi-sweet. For a macro this is poorly done.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle. Dark amber colour but very clear. Carries a small low lying head of crisp white foam. There is some biscuity maltiness in the aroma but not much else. Quite good body and not bad as I expected it to be. There is some flavour there and it is okay without being outstanding.

On tap at Young&Jackson. It looks good, but it’s not so interesting. Aroma with hints of caramel; taste sweet and short-lived; palate oily and medium-bodied; orange, with a thin head.

1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Big pfffft once the cap breaks but a sad looking beer it is in the glass. Good colour; deep, fiery copper, shimmering, with a good lot of carbonation but no head bar just a little white gripping to the meniscus. Tinny, metallic waft up first. Sweaty socks, raw nuts, weeds and damp cardboard up next proving gimmicks in macro’s haven’t stretched further than the advertising. Awkward mouthfeel. Deeply nutty, soapy and wishy washy. Metallic edge on swallow, sharp, then a slick finish that left me rolling my eyeballs. Detergent, vegetal DMS begins to dominate. I struggled. It left a film on the tongue I needed a good dose of chilli to remove. I don’t get what this is at all, Harvest what? I’d expected some decent hops to keep up with the times. Sad! I’m embaressed for them, whoever the chemists brewing this crap are!! (33cL, BB 21/11/12, Dan Murphy’s Currambine)
