COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Reflecting the red volcanic soil of our hinterland and brewed from a blend of pale and crystal malts, Jasper Ale is deep red, has a rich malt character and is well balanced with a firm spicy hop bitterness.

sm89walt (1816) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 2, 2015
330ml bottle - Grill’d, Cairns. A rich amber with a small but lasting off-white to beige head. Sweet choccy malts and slightly tangy mid to dark fruits. Gently spicy and pithy with good hop length in the finish. Light to medium body, medium carbonation and a moderate intensity bitterness of modest length. A little apple skin and roasty, coffee bitterness makes things interesting towards the back palate. Malt-focused but clean and balanced enough to refresh and abate the Cairns evening heat.

Not a bad beer. Pretty fruity, caramel, malty. Nothing to write home about though.

TedE (500) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 15, 2015
BIG malt nose. Caramel. Translucent mahogany red with small cream head. Looks great in the glass. Taste develops as it warms. There’s a kind of malt biscuit thing going on. Tiny bit of bitterness in the finish very late on. Good but not great.

Seen this around for a while and finally tried. Dark fruits thats slightly stewed and malt dominate with a little citrus coming through. Well balanced and brewed but not particularly my style

Muggus69 (1533) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - OCT 7, 2014
Draught @ Cookie, Melbourne Attractive looking burnished bronze beer with a solid off-white head. Not a great deal to the aroma, but nice enough; browned toffee & toast, plummy & dried fruits, touch of hop spice. Medium-full body, soft carbonation, good weight about it. Palate packed full of plenty of malt - toasted nuts, burnt toffee, fresh crusty bread, with undertones of vinous red fruits & floral hop. Moderate bitterness, medium dry finish. Tasty amber ale.

mattyhennessy (376) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - OCT 5, 2014
Pours a clear amber brown with a beige head. Looks quite thin. Aroma is of sweet dark fruits, plum and a little citrus. Flavour is very mild, carbonation is high. Some caramel and cherry flavour but is overall a little watery for my taste. A dry finish. Nothing flash

Supertrev (102) - CHINA - SEP 26, 2014
I was expecting this beer to pour red in colour but this is definitely brown. The aroma isn't exceptional either. Nice maltiness balanced with good bitterness. This is an ok beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark brown lager, nice and fresh on tap with more flavour than most lagers but not too exciting for me.

Westkyoto77 (561) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle at Grill'd, Brisbane. Quite a unique one, this. Nose of prunes, wet rags, rotten veggies- stinky good. Dark toffee brown, medium creamy head. Starts a little dank, but sweetness comes through in the end- cherries. Medium body, light carbonation. Fruity, spicy and quite deep. Nice.
