Bottle, sampled at Firefly Fine Wines and Ales, pours a light amber. Slightly sweet malty aroma and flavour, with a bit of honey. Overall, very weak and uninspired.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap, brewery. Pours a clear dark gold with a small wispy white head. The nose is sweet honey and pale malt with minimal hops. The flavor is rather sweet and bland, lots of honey. Mouthfeel is light, yet still a bit sticky with fizzy carbonation. Overall, a bit boring and bland, a little too sweet for my tastes.

This was tasty with a good malt and hops addition. I liked the sweetness and the dry finish. It was a nice amber ale.

(Draught) Pint sampled at Garrick’s Head pub in Victoria. Fairly plain and inoffensive amber. Better than Sleeman’s but all in all lacking body. The honey sweetness underwhelms while a grainy watered body is pronounced.

Not much here, a very light vague sweetness, like sugar water....a poor effort, why bother?

Had this at a little bar on a cruise last year, a very nice mellow beer with a very light crisp honey taste, not too heavy on the malt though, clean and refreshing.

Bottle. Pours an orange/brown with little head. Aromas of light toffee and malts. Flavours of biscuits, burnt honey and some toasted malt. Sweet. Not too impressive.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
341 ml bottle. Clear golden yellow, white foamy head fades fully and completely. Sweet light malt aroma. Good honey content, biscuit malt taste, and not much else. Very soft carbonation bordering on flat, light bodied, low hopped. Ho-hum. Better straight from the bottle. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)
