This premium hand~crafted ale is a unique brew of three malts and three Tasmanian hops added late to the kettle plus an original 125 year old, top fermenting ale yeast, creating an easy~drinking, deep copper~coloured ale with distinct richness, creamy head, and a slightly nutty finish.

Many of my friends have raved about this, so had to try it. Poured copper red with hardly any head at all. Mild to weak aroma of toasted malt and yeasty bread, with a touch of floral hops underneath. Earthy flavour of burnt toffeeat first, followed by some nice malty sweetness, with the same touch of flowers hiding underneath and some rusty bitterness and a touch of spice. The rusty bitterness comes in strong on the finish, along with the aforementioned burnt toffee and some citric acidity. Lots of different and good flavours, but very erratic, needs the flavours to blend more or less flavours in the pot. Good but still overrated, could be really special with some tweaking.

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2015 Average ale that can be forgotten after the last sip. But it’s beautiful to watch.

Slightly tangy, mildly sweet, very light bodied. Almost syrupy, more of a sipper. Not such an easy drinker.
