Great local brew from Newtown NSW. Great on tap but tasted in 500ml bottle. Great deep red brown colour, a light (but bit too) fizzy gas, no head, but great English ale taste and palate. Yum yum.

On tap @ Frankie’s Pizza. Seems slightly forced as a ’real ale’ but there’s no doubt the minerally toffee and hints of sweetness point to the real deal. Fizz is high and it does block the flavour somewhat, but i cant help but like it.

640ml bottle. Pours a clear medium amber, with a small off-white head, which lasts reasonably well and leaves good lacing. Floral and fruity hops notes mix with light toffee and caramel malt notes. Floral and sweet citrus hops up front lead into toffee malt and fruitcake in the mid-palate. Candied fruit and floral hops make up the finish. Not the most complex beer around, but a fairly solid bitter.

Was not impressed with this at all, Lacking flavour. It is still fairly drinkable, however not one I will seek to try again.

deep mahogany color. Full bodied, a bit too malty and rich. Not so balanced or interesting.

Hand-pump @ union hotel. Pours near clear amber orange with resilient light off white head and excellent specked lace. Light herbs, floral notes, grains, light caramel, vanilla and toast. Light med body, low carbonation. Finish is light balanced sweet and touch grainy and bitter. Satisfying well done beer.

(on tap) Hazy copper with slight white head. Aroma was pretty faint; mostly malty. Medium bodied with nice carbonation. A straight forward and well balanced beer. Pleasant sweet malty start and nice bitterness in finish. Overall a nice beer.
