UPDATED: JAN 17, 2008 Stunning dark amber in the glass, with a off white head. Aroma is a little caramel, and some english hops. Great malt character, unique (not sure if its the wattle), the chocolate malt is balanced in there well. Moderate hop bitterness, and the flavour of perhaps some fuggles.
The finish is a touch metallic and bitter. Overall, a very good beer. Hope to try some more from this brewer.
Re-rate - on tap at the royston. A different beer to what I remember, bucketloads of bush honey and heaps fuller. Unique and delicious. mullet (849) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 5, 2006
Filtered copper, nice thin head. Not entirely dissimilar to Anchor Steam in terms of malt character; toasty, bread crust, Vienna-style stuff, with a touch of chocolate Big M, eggs and artificial raspberry. Quite a nice, soft mouthfeel but there’s some kind of a weird twang at the end which I can’t really explain. Slightly sugary sweetness, toasty malts with a touch of something roasted. No real hop character until a slightly bitter finish. Enjoyable, but simple. I dunno what wattle seeds taste like but I couldn’t detect anything all that different. duff (5486) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 7, 2006
Bottle. Brewed with roasted Wattle seed, which was quite nteresting to know, yet the beer is fairly standard, yet quite tasty. Touches of sweet caramel and nuts, slightly roasty characters. Reminded me of Tooheys Old a little bit.
