From a bottle. Pours a dark brown, tiny head, big malty aroma, very smooth with peaty malt flavours. Not too bad at all.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Mid-amber body, off-white head quickly dissipates into a small ring.
Moderate intensity aroma; toffee, nutty malt, light toastiness.
Medium bodied affair, reasonable carbonation, bit of texture to chew on.
Lightly sweet malt body with flavours of toasted nut and brown toffee. Relatively firm bitterness on a minerally finish with a hint of hop spice.
Pretty decent entry level amber, for what it’s worth. Probably on par with the James Squire.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear amber colour with light head that didn’t last. Sweet at first, more sickly sugar than fruitiness. Hops follow this but not such a pleasant aftertaste. Can only drink one, no more.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours burnt orange color. Nose is toffee, mandarin peel & pot pourri. Taste is burnt caramel, grapefruit and some cardboard. Bitter finish. Kinda like a barley wine blended with a bitter. Not bad but don't think it completely works.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a 345ml bottle on 17/8/2013. Pours a light amber with a smallish head. Has a decent sweet malty aroma with a good dose of caramel and toffee. The flavour follows suit, with more caramel and even more pronounced toffee. Features a medium body and medium carbonation. This is actually quite a nice amber and a hell of a lot better than the average rating suggests (I suspect that this is in part because it’s a Woolworths owned brew). Could happily knock a few of these down in a session.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pretty standard for a craft beer. Pours copper brown with a low carbonation. Fruit and toffee flavours emerge leaving a sweetness with undefined hop flavours. Not much of a palate. Almost tastes diluted slightly. Okay, but nothing special
