KeefOz (1151) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - AUG 7, 2015
Poured a hazy very dark amber colour with a one- to two-finger light tan head that slowly diminished to a collar that laced OK. Carbonation moderate and medium. Yeast sediments in bottle. Aroma of sweet caramels, a very slight hint of roasted malt, earthiness and subtle hops. Taste initially very sweet followed by a strong and slightly tart bitterness; alcohol well hidden. Medium body. Smooth with a sharp bitterness on the finish. Nice.

From bottle in tapered shaker. Pours cloudy amber with an aroma reminiscent of a Cooperís with added hops. I thought I was comparing 3 amber ales tonight but apparently this is an American Strong Ale. Who knew? Nice lingering bitter palate masks some of the ABV. I havenít had a beer from the Mornington Brewery that I didnít like!

Maris (1168) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JUN 23, 2015
From a 33oml bottle on 23/6/2015. Pours a cloudy amber with a medium head, The nose features caramel, toffee and fruity hops. Taste wise, it begins with sweet caramel malt, followed by orange and lemon, with quite firm, bitter hops finishing things off. The body is quite full and the carbonation lively. Tasty with a fair bit of character.

Niksko (504) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 14, 2014
Pours a dark amber with a fine off white head. Nose is really rich, sweet toffee, caramel, almost coffee, slight citrus freshness. Flavor is delightful caramel and toffee, brown sugar, background grapefruit. Finish is citrussy, more caramel. Medium to heavy body, slightly sticky. This is a really wonderful beer.

M_Sack (403) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 29, 2013
Tap @ brewery. Dark amber with good lacing. Aromas of citrus and pine hops as well as caramel malt. Initial bitter hop flavours of citrus blossom and pine up front but only immediate bitterness which leads into a caramel and biscuit malt sweetness. A slightly bitter back palate but the sweet malts are the predominant flavour. I like this one.

this one has super model good looks, with its tanned complexion and auburn hair. The aroma has plenty of toffee malt, some grapefruit and a touch of floral aroma. The taste is very smooth, featuring toffee, orange and grapefruit in a combo that hides its alcohol with ease. A ripper.

Bif (1710) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Pours a dark amber color with a decdent tan head that fades to sme lacing. Aroma of pine, some caramel and bit of grain. taste of Pine, some roasted malt and caramel sweetness with a touch of spice. Big bitterness and the finish is quite dry. Medium body, mooth with a bit of a lingering bitterness. The 7.5% ABV is well hidden. Interesting take on the style.

lliams (196) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 6, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2013 a great local achievement. classic toffeed amber nose, with complex malt body and balanced hop profile.. could be hoppier for some, but i reckon itís a cracker.

Jado (672) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - MAY 18, 2013
Pours a deep but clear amber with a tight beige head. Aromas of pine, grass, caramel and malt on the nose. The taste is dominated initially by hop bitterness followed up by dark caramel, biscuity malt and some spice. Medium mouth feel with citrus zest and pepper in the aftertaste. Good beer.
