500ml bottle -

Picked up at BevMo the other day. A new beer they’re stocking. Always nice to see new beer. Most beers from Australia lack something, usually because of the long warehouse time where it sits waiting for distribution. The beer pours out a dark amber body, clingy white head with spotty lacing. Aroma is nutty, slightly earthy like wet leaves. Watered down raisins, wood, caramel malts, some light boiled veggies. Drinkable, but nothing spectacular.

Morboso (44) - ECUADOR - AUG 2, 2014
Dark beer with subdued roasted barley/malt taste but pretty light body. The way I would describe it is like eating rice that has been slightly burnt on the bottom of the pot. The burnt flavour will go through no matter what. So you are either after this in a beer or not. Once it has this taste it takes it into another category/style, one which I know not much about but it is better than drinking a flavourless lager. Just not too exciting.

Bought in a bottle. Can't comment on head because of a crap glass. Colour is golden toffee. Nice aroma. Easy to drink. No real aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Kaatuu lasiin mahonginruskeana ja kirkkaana, tiivis vaahto on noin 2,5 sormen paksuinen ja hyvin pumpulinen. Hennossa hajussa on vahvimmin karamellia ja havuista sekä puumaista humalaa. Heikosti on myös leipäisyyttä ja sitrusta. Maussa vahvimpana on karamellinen mallas, mutta muuten tämä on aika ontto. Puumaista humalaa ja lievästi maamaisuuttakin on joukossa. Suutuntuma on alkuun jopa vetinen, mutta sitten humalointi iskee sopivasti kiristyen suuhun saaden aikaan miellyttävän pureskeltavuuden. Kevyt amber ale, jossa karamelli pääosassa lievän puumaisen humaloinnin avittamana. Mietous jää vaivaamaan.

StuffWine (124) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 12, 2014
Poured copper-red with small white head that diminished (mother-in-law mispoured it). Aroma malts, dark fruit earthiness, followed by citrus of hops. Taste wonderful mouthful of malts, touch of brown sugar, following through to to soft dry bitterness. Soft carbonation, moderate body and finish. I like!

lusikka (6179) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 10, 2014
330 ml bottle. Pours a copper colour with a white head. Aroma of toasted malts, grass and bread. Flavour of toasted malts, grass, bread, some grapefruit and gooseberries. Light bodied, a bit rough mouthfeel and a harsh, grainy, bitter finish. Decent.

Rosslew (190) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 8, 2014
Got a coffee and peanut aroma and a colour to match. The white cap isn't dense but it lingers. A bit light, watery, on front of tongue. Not very hoppy and doesn't leave much in the memory. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
