3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reddish amber in colour with a bare skim of head and little evident carbonation. Ruby malt aromas with pecan nuttiness. It is restrained, maybe a hint of Fuggles but the star of a show of medium entertainment is the malt. It doesn’t smell bad and it doesn’t smell bad either. Plenty of carbonation in the mouth with caramel and tangy malt coming to the fore. A little bitterness, but not massive, ’nor massively memorable. A session pint which I would be happy to drink but not one I would go out of my way to have again if I’m honest.

IIRC I last had this at the Queenscliff Hotel in the late 80s - it’s been through _how_ many owners since then? Can. Clear amber with a slice of cream head. Aroma of toffee, flowers, boiled sweets, hints of pepper and mace. Light bodied, moderate carbonation. It’s a little dead feeling but refreshing. Mild grainy taste with some dilute caramel flavour, boiled sweets and firm bitterness. A pleasant surprise.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
It’s a beautiful mahogany-colored all starts with a beautiful white foam that falls to a moderate crown with lasting head of foam. The aroma is caramel malt with very lightly toasted touches where also a little nuts come in unobtrusively with the flavoring. Very fine and delicate fill abstracts part from appearances expectation. Watery from the start, but with fine light caramel notes and a light and almost imperceptibly finish of hazelnuts. Velvety soft carbonation fondles almost on the tongue and contributes to the flavor notes will be sustained. Hop bitterness is very appropriate and in fine balance with cubits little anonymous fullness. Its dark mahogany color and distinct aroma cheat a little in the beginning, because you expect a somewhat more pronounced taste of malt and hops, but meets instead of discreteness that actually fits very well with the guide. Very easy to drink and really tasty too, despite its somewhat flimsy character.

Pours deep amber with a nice off white head. Mild and sweetish aroma. Taste sweetish with notes of caramel and nuts. Just a very faint dryish floral notes. Smooth mouthfeel, soft CO2. Sweetish overall impression but drinkable. (500ml can, bb 22.05.2016)
