2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle. Poured into a stemmed larger glass. Oh what a disappointment. Mostly because of the hype around Redoak - "Australia’s most awarded brewery" - well no awards for this one. Aroma was nice and surprisingly malty. Appearance was poor with very little head no matter how lively the pour and it settled to between barely a ring of foam to nothing (I had three). Colour was a dark straw to golden colour. A little cloudy depending upon whether you get the sediment out or not. Taste was mild. No hops, no bitterness, minimal malt - just bland. Not horrible, but nothing to notice. Palate was short. I’ve had better macro beers, and this was reminiscent of an average home brew. Will try others from Redoak, because it can only be up from here (I hope).

Tasted 9/9/2014 Sydney Airport. BB 10 01 15. Poured a clear amber colour with a few white bubbles as a collar. Lacing nil. Carbonation very very low with very rare coarse bubbles. Aroma with low level nice spiciness and possibly a hint of citrus. Taste with spices and hints of sweetish citrus. Light body, a bit thin. Slightly sweet followed by low level bitterness on the finish. Average.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Earthy hops, dirt, grain were all I could pick out of this one. Easily the most disappointing Redoak of the night’s session.
