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.

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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 0.345l. Clear pale amber color with medium creamy off-white head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of caramel malt, nuts, toffee and fruits. Taste starts with moderate sweet toasted malt with nutty hints, fruity following and mild bitter finish. Medium body, slick texture and lively natural carbonation in palate. Best Aussie beer so far..

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a translucent but deep red-tinted amber. The head is a thin film at best and the aroma is a weaker barley malt, but still coming off as pure. The flavor is a bit glassy and malty and finishes a little sweet. The malt in the aroma and flavour are decidedly English.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pretty dece. Poured at a good temperature with a nice, thick, foamy, long lasting, cream-colored head, and lots of lace. Color is a lovely, clear, red amber with some tiny bubbles. Nose is malt, fruit, hint of roast. Flavor’s like nose, fruit comes out a lot more along with caramel and toffee. Body/carbonation are good. Finish is like flavor, no odd quals. quite drinkable. Nicely done. Definitely best of the bottles I’ve had.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap atca place in Sydney Airport. Pours a deep copper volour with a perfect creamy head, that stays in the glass all the way down. Earthy aroma of some caramel, wood, and some red apples. Good balance in the taste. I feel a lot of ambers focus too much on the caramel, this have some, but without the quite big sweetness other ambers have. Some slight bitterness in the finish. Good carbonation, making it quite refreshing. Medium body and a smooth palate. It’s not my favorite style of beer, but this one is how I want my amber when I have one
