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!

All I got was a glass full of foam, no matter how long I let it setle. Aroma of hops. The head tasted of roasted grain.

ALLOVATE (2281) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 1, 2012
A gusher; head only filled the glass taking a good ten minutes to settle a tawny amber and bright. The head is persistent towering and rocky, floating more than an inch above the rim. A palette knife was needed to square it off and get close to take in that wonderful bouquet. Big, bold, spicy and herbaceous whole hop nose that simply oozes passionfruit, pineapple, pear and lychee-like fruit esters with a sweet, biscuity malt edge. In the mouth it is more controlled and reserved. The body is light and the carbonation gives it good bounce. Light diacetyl is evident but not alarming, overall it is drier than expected. Toasted malt and barnyard grains start it off with just a lick of caramel. All hops past the mid-palate; quite piney and herbal, dry and husky with pronounced passionfruit and pineapple. Finish is woody and piney, long and wonderfully refreshing. I can feel me hollering for another to follow and I’m only half way in. Session stuff. I think these guys are on a winner with this shy beast. An Aussie version of Stone Levitation dare I say. Delicate and bold at the same time. Loved it!! (33cL, BB 08/12/12, Cellarbrations Carlisle)

Bootle- strong hop aromas. fantastic balance of caramel malts and hops. Nice hop bitterness on the finish. One of the best mid strength beers going around. Great session beer

Hirotoma (471) - Bologna, ITALY - APR 14, 2012
Davvero un’altra grande birra della Murrays Craft Brewing Co. stupenda in presentazione, fa anche una buona schiuma per essere una bitter, diciamo che non e’ una bitter inglese, nell’aspetto ma lo e’ nel sapore, piu’ saporita piu’ piena di corpo e con un retrogusto davvero infinito! Birrificio 10 e lobe!!!

Mortlach (955) - Rome, ITALY - FEB 21, 2012
29/07/2011 330ml bottle. Ambrata chiara, con riflessi arancia, lievemente torbida, bel cappello di schiuma bianca, morbida e abbastanza persistente. Naso fantastico, luppolatissimo, intenso, agrumato, un amaro da ricordare, probabilmente tra i migliori del genere. In bocca conferma le sensazioni provate al naso, mostrando una complessità di struttura davvero rara. Buon corpo, carbonazione corretta, gran finale. Assaggiata freschissima è tra le migliori bitter mai bevute.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 14, 2012
Bottled. An amber beer with a thin lazing beige head. The aroma has notes of straw, malt, and hops. The flavor is sweet with notes of citrus hops, dusty hops, malt, and bread, leading to a bitter finish. The body is no wonder light, but nice flowers packed in to it.
