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.

Pours dark amber, looks nice. Strange nose - bit like wild yeast, but maybe just herbal hops with a backing of crystal malts. Although I suspect an infection. Same unusual taste follows in the mouth - bit muddled for me, but finishes cleanly with a solid bitterness. Need to try again in a few months.

Not a big wrap for red your red ale so was never going to be good. Sweet dark fruits, plum, malt finish.

On tap at Stone & Wood, pours a cloudy amber with a medium off-white head. Aroma brings out notes of earth and light berries. Flavour is along the same lines, with light English malt, some earthy notes, and red berries. Mild and fruity, with a sweet malty finish. Solid.

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.

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 (1945) - 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 (985) - 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.
