3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Alfredo’s Pizza, Fortitude Valley. Dark brown, with a thick fuzzy head. Nose of stinky fruit and brown sugar, little hop tickle. Medium body, slightly sticky. Taste was a bit stale and unbalanced, but there were some decent malt, molasses and prune flavours in there trying to get out. Worth and other chance maybe.

Doesn’t come any better than this.
Has great taste and palate, why go back to the boring mainstream beers when you can this this most places? Costs a touch more, but well and truly worth it.

From a bottle. Much better than I had expected, well balanced and smooth. It’s a good option at most bars.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very nice Amber ale. Has a nice caramel citrus aroma, amber orange colour as an amber ale should be. Very nice taste, mild caramel toffee flavours. Id rate this as one of the better beers in the squires range. If not one of the best i’ve had in that range.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Amber, white head. Nose is metal and bread, flavour is like crunching down on the coin in a casilopita, wtf is this... it doesn’t expire until November so it’s not particularly old. Even my macro-drinking wife couldn’t handle it. I’m convinced they bottled a bad batch.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Clear deep amber color with a medium white head that recedes quickly. Stringy lacing. Aroma of malt, fruit and hops. Light-bodied with flavors of overripe fruit, minerals and toffee. The finish is metallic and fruity. Not an enjoyable beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewhouse. Pours a vibrant amber red with a slightly tan head that retains all the way to the bottom of the glass. One of the most impressive displays of head retention I have seen. Arms of caramel, nut, toffee and some fruit. Flavour is not quite as pronounced as was expected. A little watery, but that being said, very sessionable. Flavour also has some honey, to match the favours described in the aroma. Would like it to be stronger, but very respectable.
