COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Amber Ale has toasty, malt biscuit flavours on the palate, coupled with hoppy freshness and unique yeast flavours creating a complex but very balanced easy drinking beer.

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.

ShaneJ (499) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 29, 2013
Taster at Canberra Small Brewers Beer Festival. Dark amber, not much head, mild caramel/toffee characters, mild bitterness, gassy hops. Ok, nothing special.

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.
