3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark amber with a small lasting head.
Nose shows massive toasty/nutty malt and caramel alongside a heap of earthy, resinous hops... nice!
Similar hops and malt follow as flavours, although the hops take a more dominant role with big resinous notes and a pronounced bitterness.
Carbonation is a bit high for these flavours.

UPDATED: JUL 15, 2012 On tap at the brewery. Very tasty, and well balanced. Aromas of caramel, apricot, and grass. Taste has a sweet start, with bitterness taking over quickly for a long finish. Palate is velvety, with a medium body. Amber, with a frothy white head.

Draught at James Squire Brewhouse, Portland Hotel, Melbourne. Pours amber with a medium beige head. Tropical fruit and citrus, grassy hop notes. Medium bodied. Good hoppy bitterness right through to the finish with an underlying fruitiness to balance this out. I’m not sure what style they’re going for but it’s a pleasant beer and one of the better ones available here.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice looking beer with a creamy thin head; ’flat-white’ style. Attractive herbal green hop flavour, very restrained and well backed with classy (but mild) caramel malts. Perhaps a touch dilutive but seems well made. Marketed as a red ale which I guess is there or thereabouts.
