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.

Deep amber/red pour with a thin tan head. Malty, caramel, dried fruit, and a bit of a weird chemical aroma. Taste is toffee, dried fruit, plum. Seems a bit thin. It’s not terrible, but I still haven’t really had a beer from this mob that has lived up to their hype.

On tap at The Great Northern, Byron Bay. Love the deep malt flavours and slightly spicey hop finish, great stuff.

ANZUShophunter (239) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 1, 2015
On tap at Prince Albert Hotel, Ipswich. Pours dark amber with a thin head. Smokey malts on both the nose and palate with a fairly dry finish. Not a bad drop.

Out of a bottle our last night in Australia. Malty and flavorful with notable sweetness. Best option available tonight but would not seek it out.

sm89walt (1897) - 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 (792) - 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 (1867) - 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.
