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 (27983) - 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.

Pours dark brown with a large foamy head. Aroma of caramel malts, berries, and fruity hops. Taste is quite malty with some notes of chocolates, fruity hops and berries. Finish is smooth with some chocolate and berry notes. Okay, a bit untypical but tasty brown ale.
Bottle (Batch#1). Pours very dark brown with a creamy light brown head. It’s roasty on the nose with underlying fruity hops. Chocolate malt comes through in the flavour and a fruity hop burst balances out the malt. A roasty finish but perhaps slightly chalky and a ’soapy’ character too. It’s quite subtle all round but this has real potential. Courtesy of the man himself - cheers mate! Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 9, 2011
