3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
An amber beer with a small beige head. The aroma is lovely hoppy combined with notes of caramel - it reminds me of an IPA. The flavor is dry and boring compared to the aroma - it contains notes of brewmash, hints of caramel, and a dry hoppyness. It lacks power in the flavor.

Bottled: Amber coloured. Clear. Light brown head. Aroma of caramel, brown sugar and fruit. Flavour is a little more vague. Grassy, flat and malty. Is medium bodied. Light fruity bitterness in the end.

Dark amber colored, small tan head. Malty aroma with toffee and hop present. Sweet and quite full. Mostly sweet malty and caramelly flavor with notes of orange. Pretty ordinary, but easy drinkable and a good taste.

Terrific midstrength brew! Brown toffee coloured, clear, with a medium head. Fruity, hoppy, toffee aromas. Balanced palate with good flavour and a solid finish make this my second favourite midstrength beer, after Grand Ridge’s Moonlight.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber coloured beer with an averaged lifed beige head. It has a strong characteristic cascade hop aroma and nice sweet malt notes, including toffee. It has a dominating hop flavour and also nice malt flavour with slight fruitiness. Medium-strong bitterness with some residual sweetness resulting in a well balanced beer. It has a fairly long bitter finish. Although it is not one of my favourite styles, it is extremely well crafted. Better enjoyed on tap down at the brewery!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Superior mid-strength amber ale in the American style. It has many of the characteristics of the excellent Little Creatures pale ale but without the body or alcohol. I wouldn’t choose this over Little Creatures but it does provide a flavoursome alternative when alcoholic intake is an issue. Poured a plummy brown colour with a healthy head. The nose wallops you with grapefruity/floral Little Creatures hops. The body has that typically unsatisfying mid-strength leanness. Flavoursome - lots of puckering citrus and some strong tea characters. Good hop/malt balance. (Bottle)

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a weak head. Nice colour - clear dark amber with nice hue. Expressive nose, hints of chocolate, some sweet malts (crystal?), quite nice. Mouthfeel failed to live up to the palate - just too light. Has some ok nutty notes and some ok bitterness on the finish but just not enough excitement in the flavour department.
