330mL. Poured a clear orange amber with a fizzy, cinnamon head with good retention and miniscule lace. Aroma is laundry detergent, air freshener, nutty, cinnamon apples. An odd mix. Taste is lifeless, bland, suddy, moving to metallic, miniscule citrus, apples. Overall watery, lifeless.

330ml bottle. Pours a deep mahoganey and amber colour with an even light tan crown. Looks strong and robust with aromas of buttered popcorn, caramel and a hint of saltines. Smooth on the palate with a low level of bitterness and a long lasting aftertaste. Quite enjoyable.

maneliquor (3210) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 11, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2012 Bottle form Mane Liquor. This one is fairly unusual compared to most amber ales Iíve 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

bluevegie (3059) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 21, 2006
Slightly murky amber body with a medium size off-white head. Aroma wasnít too strong and mainly caramel. Taste follows the aroma fairly well, lively carbonation, a hint of smoke and a touch watery. This is an improvement on the amber ale I tried last night.

Pours clear amber, pillowy light beige head. Nose has cereal malts, citrus. Some spritz on the palate. Mild but lingering bitterness.

Davros (1999) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 17, 2010
Pours copper with a large off-white head. Nose is quite malty, with caramel and faint nutty notes. Some lemon is hiding in the background. Similarly rich and malty flavours with more nice nutty notes, but thereís an off-putting stale metallic grainy finish. Could do with a bit more carbonation.

davidm (1937) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAR 28, 2010
Tap. Very good amber ale. Aromas of cola and apple. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness and good length. Palate is silky, with a medium body. Amber colour, with a frothy head.

Stew41 (1742) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - DEC 13, 2005
Big fizzy head on pouring but breaks down reasonably quickly. Off-white in colour. Cloudy in the glass with nice amber / caramel hue. Fruit nose, lifted aromatics, very clean. Front palate replicates the bouquet convincingly but the flavours flatten out in the back of the mouth. Dry finish with a hint of aniseed, and feels a fraction hard.

Bottle. Pours reddish brown with a small beige head. Not much going on and rather one dimensional in character. Lightly toasted malt, citrusy hops and a tangy metallic note that hangs around til the finish. Iím not a big fan of the style but I know this one is less than inspiring.
