Clear mahogany with a beige head. Smells of burnt sugars, apples, peaches, citrus, grasses. Taste has lot of Australian-like caramel sweetness with a bit of fruit to round it out. There’s a little sourness under the (just over-) balancing bitterness. Crisp hoppy finish. I suppose this is about what you’d think - it’s an English style beer with slightly plainer malt and punchy Kiwi hop flavours. joergen (29216) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 2, 2011

Bottle. Pours a clear and dark brown beer with a beige head. The aroma is malt, caramel, notes of nuts and hops with citrus. The flavor follows the nose closely. The palate is bitterness with notes of sweetness. Overall a good beer.

Bitter, fruity and nutty finish. Firm tasting brown ale, nice different (better) brown ale. mkel07 (6394) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - SEP 23, 2011
500ml bottle. A true brown ale with a dark brown tea like colour and an even puff of light brown foam skimming the surface. Malty biscuit aromas are pleasing on the nose without being overbearinbg. Smooth and easy to drink with a mildly warming flavour and moderately creamy mouthfeel. DeliriumT (542) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - FEB 12, 2012
This beer is a nice and flavoursome brown ale with a slightly burnt aroma and taste balanced well with delicious fruity hops. Kristall-König (2820) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - APR 27, 2012
