Nice creamy crown. Aroma of caramelized sugar and toffee. Lots of smoke, whisky and nuts in the flavour, reminiscent of Caol Ila whisky. Quite bitter aftertaste.

Tap at Print Hall. Ruby red pour...go figure. Nose is floral hops, quite grassy and earthy. Toffee malts. Taste is toffee with light floral hops behind. Pretty straight forward. Easy going. Ok ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at the Local Taphouse. Intense malty nose, with good hop support. Aromas of caramel, nuts, with hints of smoke. Taste is sweet, with bitter notes, and average length. Palate is oily, and medium bodied. Orange, with a frothy head.

MBison (548) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - OCT 5, 2008
On tap at the Lord Nelson. Arrived hazy copper with a small, frothy white, head which was mostly lasting. Aroma was of black berries and crane berries with light earthy notes, biscuity malts and toffee. Flavor was similar to aroma with a light earthy hop bitterness, dry biscuity malts, caramel, cranberries and a nutty/dry finish. Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation, a dry/creamy mouthfeel and an ok finish.

Following a meeting in the city I decided it was about time I made the trip down to the Lord. A good walk to build up a thirst for a pint before returning to work. So, to my delight, prior of course to drinking the beer, I found a new offering. Look, to be fair, this is one of the old stagers of the craft brew scene here in Sydney and so we need to be thankful that they were pioneers of a sort. Brewers, regrettably, have come and gone, and so there is a little inconsistency that has crept into the brews. So, to the new beer. The first hurdle is of course procuring the relevant information from the bar staff. What style is this? ’Errr beer (duuuhhh)’, said pretty young brunette with preppy hairdo and an attitude to match. No, I assume its an ale but what style? ’Ale style, like you said’. OK, forget any further inquisition think I. This is a beer with a reddish hue and crema head that suggested an Irish red with its biscuity nose and understated hop aroma. The flavour is similar but the most noticeable aspect of this is the unpleasant sharpness in the finish accompanied by a harsh bitterness. In attempting to tie this style down I asked one of the longer serving people there who at least recognises me on a tip of the lid basis. He pointed me out to the brewer Damon, who should be able to help. Well, at about 1:30 in the afternoon I felt that he had at least been diligent in ensuring quality control of his craft as he was certainly emulating one of the brews there by being at least 3 sheets to the wind. He babbled something about challenger, saaz and fuggles hops being in the mix and that this was a sort of an altbier, but he was just having a play around. A bit. Uh, yeah cheers sport, you have made an ordinary and confused beer which goes to show you are who brewed you.
