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

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.

From what I remember this was a low key easily drinkable ale. Caramel malt was the subtle flavor that dominated the beer for me and slowly as the beer warmed grew on me. Easily drinkable nothing to rave about but worth a pint.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - pours deep ruby with a big off white head. First sniff the head was soapy with a slight metallic twinge, after, a swirl the rich dried fruit almost port aroma came through. Rich plum taste up from with a lingering fruit finish. Mouthfeel is a bit thin but nice drop.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle. BB 2Mar14. Poured a translucent garnet red colour with a three- to four-finger beige foamy head that retained well and left suds rings on the glass. High carbonation as seen by numerous small bubbles forming trails. Aroma subtly of sweet caramel malt. Taste of sweet caramel with any influence of hops absent. Light body. Smooth finish. Average.

On tap at Draft House Charlotte, London. Ruddy brown, creamy head. Toffee nose and taste with dry citrus kicking in towards the finish. Not bad.

Very dark copper colour with flecks of red throughout. Deep thick creamy head of brown foam. Lots of caramel malt in the aroma, sweet. Biscuity malt flavour which is quite good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ruby red. Malt, spice and rum on both the nose and palate. A pleasant and enjoyable beer that just fails to step into that next category of flavour and texture that it promises to do. A common fault with stone & wood in my view, although perhaps in keeping with a laid back, relaxed Byron bay culture
