3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Another cheaply pleasant surprise in the form of an amber ale. It pours a deep amber, reddish color with medium carbonation and a fairly pearl white head..medium in nature and long lasting. The aroma was definitely hoppy, some malt, and sweetness, and a hint of fruit. The flavor is definitely hoppy, but you know those caramel malts are very entrancing...like sweet apple pie. A tiny bit of citrusy counter in there just to keep the taste buds alive and well. Nice tongue coating maltiness...mildly dry finish...very pleasant and can be a session beer.

UPDATED: APR 7, 2003 Pours deep amber with a beigey almost brown head. Little to no carbonation, rather clear looking liquid considering the colour. Fruity aroma. Very sweet, with a hint of hop bitterness. Hints of molasses and caramel. Almost too sweet for my liking. IMO it needs more hops to balance it out. Smooth though thin mouthfeel. Re-rate draught 2/4: Much more balanced this time. Good lacing too. Still a tad thin. Nice hop flavour.

Used to like this a lot more. It's a litle watery and bland. Nice deep copper color. Nothing special

Delicous delicate aroma of strawberry chocolates and smooth creamy palate with spicy cinnamon notes.

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.
