COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mouth filling malt characters and a beautiful fruit driven complexity derived from the open fermenters, mix this with a reassuring bitterness from some aromatic hops and we reckon the result is a delightfully scrumptious ale!

Pours a beautiful ruby red with off white head. Nose is sweet and malty, with red fruits like raspberry. Flavour is sweet, with a floral honey note. Finish us slightly smoky with some coffee bitterness. Body is light to medium, and the carbonation is a bit under for me. Pretty decent.

Not a bad ale and one that I go for at the australian pubs where the only other alternative is carlton. Some nice flavours but just not as deep as I want. Bit thin on the palate.

Not nearly as nice now as it was when I first tried it a few years ago. Dark, earthy tones, reasonable aroma of malt, but something lacking in palate and taste.

Pretty average beer but not awful by any means, its one I have every now again.

On tap. Dark brown colour with thin head. Sweet malty aroma of chocolate, caramel and fruits. Quite thin bodied. Taste is sweet and slightly roasty. Nice smooth finish.

KeefOz (969) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - DEC 19, 2012
On tap at Story Bridge Hotel. Poured a translucent black with a red tint. It had a thin off-white bubble head and laced OK. Aroma of roasted grain and a touch of coffee. Taste sweet malt followed by a very faint hops bitterness. Medium body. Short smooth sweet finish. Overall quite sweet.

Bottle. Look I reckon this beer is ok for what it's trying to do. Light cola, malt and Citrus aromas. Taste isn't huge but has light biscuit, caramel & citrus hop flavors. Little bitterness at the end. Not bad

This beer pours as a honeyed dark brown, clear liquid with a few lingering bubbles and a minimal, slick head. The aroma is a bit like cola, burnt and malty with coffee. The taste is watery and salty. This is a light bodied beer with a slightly oily texture, mild carbonation and a very mild bitter finish. Overall, this is a nice beer with a malty burnt flavour that is a nice contrast to its light texture.

Misses the mark for me. Looks appetizing but falls short on everything. Aroma very light, thin, not much body. Lacks the depth of malt flavours I’d expect in a dark. Refreshing, probably nice summer session beer, just not my thing.

Jado (575) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - AUG 28, 2012
Poured a light cola brown with a small head. Couldn’t get much aroma, maybe some floral notes. The body is quite thin, with some caramel and light hop flavours. I thought this would be a bit more robust and was a bit disappointed with it. Easy drinking for sure, but a bit ho-hum.
