(Bottle) Clear mid brown, tiniest off-white head. Subtle aroma - hint of nuts. Light body with rather fizzy carbonation. Pleasant taste - nuts and caramel, notes of seaweed and candy / bubblegum. Pleasant enough, not special.

330ml bottle into glass. Malty, lightly smoked nose. Pours with an exuberant off-white head with quickly calms down to soapy film. Beer is hazy copper coloured. Medium body with chalky mouth feel, lightly sweet. Finish is sweet with a little bitterness, increasing to a touch of caramel. Nice.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle at home. Copper coloured with a loose transient off-white head. There is a trace of smokiness on the nose and palate which, along with the earthy hops and a nutty caramel malt bill, raises this beer above most other amber ales. Nice one.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear golden orange with a fine off white head. Nose is slight caramel, lots of grain and a hint of citrus. Flavour is caramel, orange juice, pineapple and a grainy, slightly sour finish. Light body with a slightly watery finish. Fairly bland and boring.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From a 330ml bottle on 20/4/2013. Pours a cloudy light amber with a very small head. Has a slightly odd basement aroma. The flavour features some muted sweet fruit and some light bready and nutty malt. Little bitterness presents, and the carbonation and body are medium. A bit a nothing beer really and quite disappointing. Red Duck have much better offerings.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a semi-opaque deep amber colour with a white foamy head that held a while and laced well. High carbonation - lots of bubble trails but these dropped off such that by half way through there were virtually none. Aroma faintly malt but nothing dominating. Taste trace malts, making it a bit sweet. Medium to thin body. Mouthfeel light, smooth and pleasant. Short soft finish. Bit different from other amber ales.

330mL bottle, pours light amber with a soupy head and slight hoppy aroma. Has a nice light malt flavour with a light body. Not the best but easy drinking.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2012 Bottle form Mane Liquor. This one is fairly unusual compared to most amber ales I’ve had. Cloudy, murky amber pour with a quickly dieing off white head. Nose is full of nuts and dark, dried fruits. Reminds me a lot of an English Old Ale. Dark, dried fruits and biscuit in the taste. Still reminds me of that English Old style. There is a dull nutty/biscuity note right on the finish which is off putting. Not that good at all
