3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle- pours a dark amber color with a creamy head that fades to some lacing. Aroma of malt sweetness, caramel with bit of fruit in the background. Taste of roasted malt, caramel sweetness and bit of grain and herbs. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Fairly light body, smooth with a nice balance. Enjoyable beer that goes down quite easy. good for a couple.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From 330 ml bottle. Pours a hazy chestnut brown with a small off-white head. Aromas of dried fruit, apple and a touch of chocolate. Taste starts out with raisins and apple juice with a spicy kick then coming through. Lightly fruity finish and a lightly spicy aftertaste. Pretty good really.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A little light on for aroma but it’s very nice, like an English Pale ale.
Bright, clear & Amber. Excellent smooth creamy white head.
Not as strong as I was expecting, which is fine, chewy malt, immediate & also lasting bitterness. A little sweetness to round things off.
Very smooth. Outstanding head & lacing.
I wasn’t expecting much from this, I’m not a huge fan of other Mildura beers. I treated it like an English Ale & drank it at about 10 degrees, I can’t imagine it would be better colder. Anyway I’ll buy it again for sure

Amber poor from the bottle with a white head frothy at 1st but soon recedes to a thin lingering head. Drinkable full bodied amber ale with hints of toffee and a fruitiness up front.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled pours with mid head but settles quickly. Fizzy gas slightly too much. Taste pleasant but a bit two dimensional, palate pleasant bitterness.

Although drunk slightly too cold a disappointing version of a style I love. Roasted sweet malts and hints of hop bittering, but not particularly balanced.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a 330ml bottle on 24/7/2013. Pours a slightly cloudy amber with a smallish head. Has a slight, sweet malty fruity aroma. The flavour features quite a bit of sweet citrus fruit (especially orange, and a touch of honey. Finishes with a medium bitterness. The body is medium to full and the carbonation average. Actually quite nice, and a little harshly treated on here imo.

Poured a clear dark amber colour with a one-finger off-white head that diminished fairly quickly. Laced OK. Moderate carbonation. Aroma of sweet malt. Taste initially sweet malt followed by a slight floral hops bitterness. Light to medium body. Finishes smoothly but on a slightly sour note.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark full bodied beer with good head. A nice beer for a winters day but better after it has been out of the fridge for a while as it looses flavour if drunk too cold.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
330ml bottle. This is a robust sweet malty dark amber ale with a mild floral hop bitterness and an alcoholic warmth at the very end. Medium to full body with a pleasant smooth mouthfeel. Uncomplicated but nice - would go down well with red meat dishes.
