500ml bottle from Archive Beer Boutique. Big deep rocky head, copper red beer and awesome citrus hop aroma. Full flavoured easy drinking beer that I could easily drink quite a few of. Lively in the mouth with a nice long finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Ruby red pour with a small beige head. Nose shows floral and earthy hops. Very sweet malts. Loads of toffee up front. Taste shows bitter hops but for me this beer is all about the malt profile. Loads of honey and toffee/caramel tones which combine to make a very balanced beer with a lengthy bitter finish. Sessionable stuff. A good drop

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
At just on cool and into a snifter. This one produces a translucent deep copper with carbonation that is few and far between. Solid and lasting creamy sheen of foam atop leaves behind a thin lace. Plummy, vinous and resinous, herbal hops glow in the aroma showing flakes of nettles, pine, soft white cheese, kelp, red berries and peaches. A let down for the palate. Comes on as nutty, husky and a little rough. Piney, herbal finish; mild grass, mild butter. Body is full and cumbersome; it sits heavy in the stomach. Good bitter grip though, impressed by it. Caramel, biscuity malts give it sweetness along with a light lick of marmalade. At 6.2% ABV it has a bit of alcohol for the breath. Overall it is a mouthful of ale, and that is it. Enjoyed the pint, but moved on quick like. (568mL, BB 08/12/13, Dan Murphy’s Currambine)
