This ale is hope and malt driven. The significant proportions of Crystal and Cara malts provide much of the body that make this a full bodied ale. The goldings hops used finish it off with a nice balance. This is a beer for those who enjoy a fuller bodied ale.

Good size fluffy white head on an amber body. Pleasant aroma, I mainly notice the hops which seem to carry well through to the taste, on a fairly thin body. After just having a JS Amber after work I found this easier to drink.

Hazy dark golden with a large off-white head. Very nutty/estery aroma, bit of solvent alcohol too. Also had some biscuit and sugary sweetness, a bit strange really. Pretty abrasive mouthful, extremely tannic, not sure if its too bitter... its so hard to tell. Flavours of toffee and nuts and those little sweet corn treats. I didn’t really enjoy it too much, especially compared to their pale.

don’t know if it is the rating bottle, but it is not as nice as i remember from the microbrewers showcase. Anyway, very simple nose, pours with a nice white head and amber body as one would expect. Flavour is quite straighforward with toffee/caramel malts upfront and some decent bitterness in the finish. Not bad, but nothing too memorable either. there was also a slight hint of sourness. perhaps worth re-rating later as this may be a slightly sub-par batch.

19 Jul 2006 - (Victorian Microbrewer’s Showcase) - Light sweet simple malt and fruit aroma. Amber colour with a tinge of red colour, ordinary head and suds lacing. Wierd hop and light sweet ordinary flavour. Bitter hop and thin malt finish. Overall - I’d like to try this again in a better surrounding.

Stew41 (1933) - Phuket, THAILAND - JAN 30, 2007
Uninspiring upon pouring with effectively no head. Amber / light brown in colour. Soft malts with a touch of sweet caramel on the nose, not unlike a English bitter. Quite appealing. Very similar to taste although the malt weight doesn’t really get out of 2nd gear. Some firming bitterness on the finish. Quite low in fizz and probably all the better for it. Had I drunk blind I would definately have picked it as a UK bitter. Not bad for a relatively new member on the Melbourne craft scene.
