3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can from Brewcraft at home. Clear very dark amber pour with thin/no head. Really good aroma - spicy but also dank hoppiness, unusual (a bit similar to the SD beers earlier this summer). Taste is similar to aroma but disappointingly weak. Finish is more faithful to the interesting aroma. Dank hops, spiciness. Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
375 ml can. Pours amber (a good start) with a small head that quickly disappears. Hoppy aroma. Lots of big malty flavours with hops overlaying that. Slightly sweet taste with bitter finish. A very nice amber ale.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
BB 21.03.15. Poured a clear dark amber with a one- to two-finger off white frothy head that retained well and laced OK. Carbonation moderate and coarse. Aroma with a moderate level of very nice and inviting sweet fruity hops plus a hint of malt. Taste more subdued level of fruit than in the aroma. Light body, mouthfeel a bit thin. Smooth with low level bitterness.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
Lovely hoppy amber ale. Good red colour, white head. Aroma is all toffee and nuts then passion fruit and kiwi. Malt forward flavour but with a good hop bitterness at the middle and end.
Very drinkable, sessionable even.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Malt forward as is the style - good fruity hops - low bitterness (would have like more) - pleasant balanced easy drinker - like the can package. Amp up the hops and the complexity and this could really be something special instead of just safe and solid.

Very full flavoured definitely late hops but they are dry hops.
Mountain goat have excelled with this. We experienced this in cans and would have preferred stub bies.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a 375 mL can. Pours a dark amber colour, tiny white head, big fresh floral aroma, crisp fruity hops flavours, malt smoothness and a slight resin finish. A very nice beer.

From a can. Trepidation. But nice head. And great aroma. Hoppy delight. Got a bit of kiwi fruit. Lovely and malty. Very pleasant mouthfeel. When you think the resin is getting too high it trails off nicely. Very sessionable.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
375ml can. Pours a clear copper amber with a light tan head that holds firm. Looks magnificent. Medium carbonation. Sweet floral aroma with a punch of citrus and pine. Strong malt backbone contributing caramel and roasted nuts. Very biscuity. Sessionable and delicious.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
375ml can. Poured nicely with a nice head and lovely deep red, amber colouring. Not the greatest aroma but pleasant all the same. Tastes of bread and citrus with a good malty backbone which is not overwhelming. A good bitter finish on the palate which lingers . A very good Aussie Amber and would be very sessionable. Another one of those beers you’d love to try off the tap.
