2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark amber with a thin off white head which fades quickly. Toffee/burnt sugar aroma, sweet dried fruit as well. Taste is malty, slightly burnt sugar, not much else.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle into glass. Clean distant hop nose. Hazy bronze beer with lasting white head. Irregular carbonation. Crisp in the mouth, a little zing. Excellent finish, tastes like a malt biscuit. Very similar to James Squire Amber Ale.

Bottle from Melbourne Street Fine Wine Cellars. Fantastic aroma, love the sweet burned raisin smell. It does lack in taste, yet there is a slight salty bitterness to it.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Taster at Canberra Small Brewers Beer Festival. Dark amber, not much head, mild caramel/toffee characters, mild bitterness, gassy hops. Ok, nothing special.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
HTH with Tall poppy (8-wired) at Vale Ale head quarters: Another jejune amber ale. No complexity - in fact it was flavourless - with a watery mouthfeel. Not the best.
