A very palate pleasing ale, nice nutty taste, and thought I could taste a hint of cinnammon.

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2003 i used to think this was good but i'm getting bored of it now cause it's always what i end up drinking when they don't have old. dull but inoffensive caramel/nut flavour, dextrins stick to the roof of yer mouth, zzzz

Bottled. Amber coloured with rich, creamy head. Light bobied, malt sweet and clean with rather low bitterness. A plain, very drinkable ale.

This one’s nice by the pint from a little english-style pub up in the Dandenongs in my hometown.

Now i must admit I have been quite harsh towards Lion Nathan but this is quite a great beer, I enjoy all the Malt Shovel brews....They do have a habit of giving me a headache while drinking them, might be quite a high sugar content.

OK, i had this tonight witha fat juicy steak. And although it seemed to go nicely with the steak, it just didn’t have much flavour to get me excited. Has some nice nutty, malty flavours, with a round palate, and definite dry finish. Very english like nesta says, i just don’t find it as interesting as i used to, but quite solid.

(draught) Looks pretty nice actually (just like in the picture). Interesting tasting beer: kind of like a creamy english bitter (kind of has that crystal malt taste) that run into some pretty hefty finishing hops. Not bad really.
