yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 17, 2009
Tasted 12/09/2009. Nice wee "hoppy mild", reminiscent of Emerson’s M’Lord Mild Ale. A little stonefruit and a little nutty malt on a biscuity base, low enough in alcohol to drink almost all day. What more could we ask? Hmmm, if I insist: it would be to get it a little warmer and put it on handpull! Lovely drop.

sthlm (1254) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 5, 2009
[On-tap at Little Creatures] Pours deep amber with a lasting nice beige head that leaves good lacing. Aroma is sweet, but more caramel than fruit. Taste is similar to the bright, but the malt profile is slightly different, and there is more cracker. Sessionable, but really quite boring. Not overly impressed, even for an amber ale.

faroeviking (10284) - FAROE ISLANDS - JUN 13, 2009
Botella. Clear amber brown colour. Aroma is malty and hoppy with some caramel. Good mouthfeel. Flavour of toasty malt, some caramel, flowers and some frutiness, nice dry bitterness. Dry pleasant bitter maltish finish. Quite a bitter amber ale, reminds me more of a pale ale.

kearnsy (68) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 9, 2009
Easy to drink, but lacking flavour and hop presence. Both times I’ve had it I have experienced an off flavour. Will not buy it again.

Dervock (646) - Emu plains, AUSTRALIA - FEB 25, 2009
Pours a dark copper with a light malt aroma. Very mild flavour and light body. Not really much to be said its a reasonable enough beer!

strings (377) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 21, 2009
Bottle. A bit pale and watery but still evidence of coming from a good brewery. Sort of like they were trying to create a really bland mainstream characterless beer, and accidentally ended up with some nice residual fruity aromas. Inoffensive.

mkel07 (4343) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JAN 5, 2009
345ml bottle. Great session beer with a great flavour for a medium strength beer. Pours a copper colour into glass with a medium head.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 24, 2008
Bottle. A clear dark copper with an off-white foamy head. A warming malt aroma, hints of raisin. A delicious floral and malty palate with a smooth swallow. Yum, brilliant for just 3.8%.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown!, AUSTRALIA - DEC 12, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2009 Draught at Platfom Bar, Brisbane. Pours dark amber with a medium off-white head. Nice aroma of caramel malt and floral hop notes. Flavour is biscuit, caramel and citrus. Medium bodied. Good carbonation and pleasant bitter finish. Had a welcomed freshness straight from the keg.

Muggus69 (1553) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - SEP 25, 2008
330ml bottle. Pours a very nice clean copper-amber body with a smallish dense beige head, leaving lace on the way down. Good nose packed with the fruity citrus hops you can come to expect from its big brother, bit of grainy caramel malt in the background. Body is tremendously full for the strength, smooth slightly clingy mouthfeel, moderate carbonation, drying texture. Cereal and toffee malts in the background, notes of grapefruit and peach skin, maybe a touch of pine and grass, hops seem dominant and distracting. Finishes with a decent hit of bitterness, slightest bit chalky. Fantastic ’midstrength’, would give most full strength Aussie amber ales a run for their money. Highly sessionable and flavoursome.
