COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
After a run of high alcohol special releases we wanted to do something to show you can have lower abv and still big flavour. Strong British malt flavour with the rich nutty caramel flavour of the dark crystal malt is balanced by the strong hop flavour and aroma of the nz Riwaka and Motueka hops. At 3.9 percent abv it results in a great full flavoured, hoppy session ale. Great by the pint!

Bottle at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a clear mediun amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is malt light citrus hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a light refreshing zesty citrus hop palate and a lingering light toothpaste bitter finish. Mediun bodied with average carbonarion.

On hand pump at Young and Jackson’s, Melbourne. This beer is an excellent example of an ESB however at 3.9% it is a little weak to be in style. Best tasted on the hand pump - pours slightly cloudy with a creamy, persistent head. Reasonable aroma - nothing amazing but solid. The taste is excellent - right down the middle of an esb with low carbonation. I agree with previous comments that there is a high amount ofbdark malt here, but overall this deserves more praise than its received here. Good bitter!

monoroc (49) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - OCT 27, 2014
Pours amber hazy color with a medium head. Great malty aroma. Tasting caramel, dark malt and grapefruit. You somehow have the feeling that they used a fair bit of dark malt to compensate for the low ABV and the therefore light malt body. Perfect carbonation. Nevertheless a good beer.

RafeAU (188) - Kingston, AUSTRALIA - SEP 30, 2014
Amber pour from bottle, big bubbly head. Nice restrained english hop and malt aroma. Very high carbonation lessens the enjoyment. biscuity malt flavours, little hop flavour, low bitterness. A half decent session beer.

Morboso (67) - ECUADOR - JUL 27, 2014
Bought it on special, had a read of label and realized it was a "mid strength" alc beer so felt a little ripped off coz nothing on main label to say so. But then I tasted it and it was lovely. nice hoppy aroma, full body and satisfying finish. Quite good. Only neg was highly carbonated but may have got bad sample/

Bottle from Dan Murphys. Copper/gold, medium white head, an amazing beer for 3.9%, could happily drink all day. Nutty caramel malt, grapefruit/citrus/tropical fruit hops, nice bitter-sweet finish, full mouthfeel. Excellent.

Supertrev (70) - CHINA - MAR 24, 2014
This beer has a very good overall flavour and mouthfeel for a lower strength beer. For me, the thing that let's it down is that it is over carbonated. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

marom92 (47) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 1, 2014
On tap at the Great Brittan Hotel, a copper tinted amber colour slightly hazy. Very minimal head. Nose is interesting, earthy and woody with notes of caramel, floral hops and spices. Medium bodied with a dry mouthfeel. Sweet malts flavours with an earthy character. Notes of grapefruit in the finish. Decent

on tap at the brewery just north of sunny stockton. steady amber with a light head; generic amber ale aroma with traces of pine; light bitterness, some caramel; a bit of a snoozefest
