3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear dark brown with a tan head. Strong Rye bread aroma, a bit of earth, toffee and a burned toastedness. Kind of feels a bit stale, like cold coffee and burned toast with butter. Medium body, not much bitterness lends to the smoothness of the mouthful and lets the bready malt character shine nicely. A soft cocoa and herbal flavour comes through lightly. The finish is bready and a touch sweet. A really nice vienna, better in the flavour and body than the aroma.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nice aroma on this, reminiscent of a Newcastle brown style ale of coffee, burnt toffee and caramel. Appearance is a but lackluster with a very flat pour and sudsy head that disappears very quickly. Flavour is ok, kind of thin body and a real hole in the profile with some cardboard in it amongst the dark malt elements. The finish is a bit grainy chocolate. Good but i wonder if there is something lost in the journey from the UK to Australia.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours vibrant red, off white head. Nice toasty biscuity malt aroma. Flavour is all about the malt - which is biscuity. Pretty much no bitterness, thin body. Clean finish. Clean but boring.

Pours dark copper to brown, almost no head. Taste is malty, sweet, some caramel and a moderated herbal hoppiness in the finish. Quite light and restrained but pleasant enough.

Draft at Brew Wharf. Weak aroma of caramel. Brown/amber color with very little head. Caramel flavors, overly sweet. The mouthfeel was over carbonated. An ok, but not a great beer.
