this place really gives microbreweries a bad name if it could still be called one. chewy banana bread with vanilla essence and toilet cleaner

eczematic (1320) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - JAN 6, 2004
disgusting combination of super-sweet caramel/biscuit malt, grapefruity hops, and banana esters - bleaugh! revolting

dieselmech72 (6) - Michigan, GERMANY - DEC 26, 2003 does not count
Well it has some kick. A little too sour and not a great palate. Not my first choice.

beerledgend (1197) - Waterloo, Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 27, 2003
Amber in colour, big white head, hoppy aroma, mild bitter taste with caramel hints. Certainly an Autum drink. Good seasonal from Mac's.

Sully (1377) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - JUL 1, 2003
This started with little initial nose on the pour but the hop presence comes through in the taste. The colour is a pleasant deep amber that is true to the taste of Munich, Crystal malt and toffee. The mouthfeel belies the 5% ABV and like Copperhop it finsihes dry on the back palate. Good lacing in the glass.
