2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle@Home. Light earthy, light herbal, bit fruity, bit malty and even some citrus in the aroma. Not strong but interesting. Brown, beige head, fair lace. Light malty, very bitter - almost grassy - hops, light fruity, hints of toffee. Seems out of balance to me. Thinnish.

Tap, Brew Wharf. Dark brown, thin white head. Malty with some sour hop, some dry dusty malt. Mouth is malty with roasted malt and some winter fruit. Palate is dry, but not all that descript.

Bottle 33 cl from Bier-Bienne (CH). Very nice copper reddish, small and fleeting collar white-cream, average crackling. Aromas of malt-toffy, stone fruits and kernels. The taste is malty caramel and toasted, rather round, hints of bitterness, nuts and tart tips.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nice balance of hops and malt but a somewhat watery palate. Inoffensive but hardly living up to the hype of the rather overpriced cocktail bar I had this in.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Bistro l’Autre oeil. Dark copper with a thin off-white creamey head. Average retention and minimal lacing. Aroma is caramel, toasted malt and hops. Flavor is a very nice natural caramel with toasted malt, floral hops and fruits. Medium body. Well done and refreshing. I really don’t understand such a low rating for this beer.

Ruby red with breadish but somehow fruity malts. Plummy and raiseny like a big plum pudding. Nice beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at the Pumphouse bar, Sydney. Was a decent beer, but was expecting more. Quite malt heavy, with a small hop profile. Plenty of earthy flavours with a strong caramel/toffee sweetness.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2009 From a 330ml bottle on 29/12/2009. Dark brown/reddish in colour, with almost no head. Smells of caramel and toffee, tastes the same - quite sweet, with some chocolate notes, and an almost lemony finish, with a touch of bitterness. An interesting drop, if not remarkable.
