COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pepperjack ale brings together the best in craft brewing and contemporary Barossa winemaking. This rouge coloured alehas been created using the finest malted barely grains, intensely aromatic hops and Pepperjack's very own Barossa Valley Shiraz. Exhibiting profound fruit driven aromatics that add tothe complexity of the uniqueselectionof barley and hop, Pepperjack Ale can be enjoyed on any occasion but is best suited to your fridge rather than your cellar.

Brewed for Saltram of Barossa ( http://www.saltramwines.com.au ) at Matilda Bay's Garage brewery.

Rosslew (254) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 3, 2011
Pours with nice head and a lovely rustic colour. Not a lot of aroma. But nice smooth taste. Almost a taste of white wine in this beer, not surprisingly as it is from Barossa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. It’s a clear, dark golden to light amber beer with a small, off-white head. Rather fruity aroma, with citrus peel and some lighlty peppery notes. Smooth, medium bodied and citrus tasting. Some bitterness, but it could do some more. Quite long finish with some bitterness and a spiced touch. A quite pleasant one. 110819

Maris (1026) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - APR 9, 2011
From a 345ml bottle on 10/4/2011. Pours a dark orange approaching amber. Has a relatively slight aroma of fruit, nuts and malt. This is a bit of a weird one taste wise. Most prominent is sweet dark fruit, with some blackcurrant coming through, followed by a relatively short, tart, slightly peppery finish. Notwithstanding the presence of some fruity notes, I’m not sure this has been correctly charcterised as a fruit beer. Reminds me a bit of White Rabbit Dark Ale, but more a bit more harsh and less well balanced.
