3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Mild nutty aroma, red brown colour with a white lasting head. Quite smooth, not an awful lot of flavour but a sound choice at most pubs.

Explained to me as "the coal minerís beer". Still pretty good stuff, mildly sweet, caramel, nutty. Brown body with small airy head, easy drinker.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Mortdale pub. Schooner of black! Very faint malt nose. Dark ruby red with thin but lasting head. Spritzy but robust. Clean bitter finish with a little coffee/cocoa right at the end. Brown ale? More like a dark lager, I think.

Bottle into pint glass. Pours a clear dark brown amber colour. Aroma is stone fruit. Taste is sweet malt. Mouth feel is a bit thin. This beer is...........ok.

If desperate times call for desperate measure, i.e. youíre in a shitty Sydney pub that has all the big sterile beers like VB or Tooheys New and thereís this, youíll find it at least attempts to have some sort of flavour. Itís by no means good, but a man must do what a man must do.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Keg. Poured a dark brown with slight ruddy hues and a small, somewhat lasting, lacing light beige head atop. Nutty, malty sweet characters of mid, dark and fried fruits, roasted malts and then some pithy yeast complexities. Light to medium body, medium carbonation and finishing with a moderate intensity, modest length bitterness.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Mahogony in color with an off-white head. Toasted malts, molasses, chocolate, with lightly sweet fruit. Medium bodied. Pretty solid, really. Not what I look for in a brown ale, but Iíd have a couple pints and be fine with it.

It Is better than the other Tooheys range, it at least has a little flavour. but Iíd only ever get it when itís the only option alongside Tooheys extra dry etc, I would never seek this out. not much interesting here.
