Medium amber color, small head. A medium bodied amber ale. Nicely malty and slightly hoppy. A mild yet full flavored ale. Rich, smooth taste. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is malty and slightly bitter. Nice beer. Flavorful, light and refreshing.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pretty amber color. The aroma/flavor was nutty, bitter, and creamy. Nice easy drinking beer with enough taste to enjoy the experience.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep red brown clear with a small light tan medium lasting head. Faint mild roasted malt aroma. Warms to release luscious fruity nectar and molasses. Medium light body with mild medium roasted malty bitter start. Fades quickly to a short soft malty sweet finish. Dry clean refreshing aftertaste.

On tap this thing is a whole lot better than in the bottle. It has a bit of body, nice lace, medium aroma, maltiness, hints of banana in the aroma, overall a bunch of good things but not nearly enough of any of them. Do not touch the bottled stuff, absolute shite, watery flavourless rancidly bitter.

Nice head, fair lacing, amber/copper colour, slightly nutty and a reasonable mouthfeel. Not bad at all. Needs more malt/body? maybe, but not much.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
VERY BERY DISSAPOINTING. Almost no aroma, and the flavor was more like water. I may not be an amber ale officionado, but I think this is a poor example of the style.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
I’m not sure whether we’d call this an amber or a pale here. Pretty light in body, some prickly sweetness and dryness from the hops. Pretty well balanced, but nothing special. I’ll drink it next time I’m watching the cricket from Down Under or a couple of episodes of Neighbours but otherwise I think the US microbrews are better.

This is a nice ale to drink. Floral without being overpowering but a little light in the body. While a 5% beer it drinks a little like a tasty light beer. I certainly prefer a little more body in the beer, but for late summer afternoons by the pool...this is a cracker. Easy to enjoy and easy to get, which certainly helps.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light amber colour, nutty sugary aroma. Sweet malt flavour, thin bodied, slightly bitter in the finish. I taste brown sugar and caramel. Borderline cloying. Quick finish. This beer is decent, but I don’t think that it deserves top honors for Aussie beers.
