Brewed for Barons Brewing by AIB

The first beer released is the Wattle Seed Ale, which starts with a blend of Australian and European malts, creating a rich flavour base of caramel with a hint of chocolate. The smooth malt flavours are lightly hopped and then infused with roasted Wattle Seed, bringing a unique and authentic Australian flavour to this fine red ale. The result is an outstanding ale that boasts a smooth taste profile balancing its robust character, an ultimately rewarding yet distinctive beer. Native Range. Formerly Barons Black Wattle Superior Wattle Seed Ale.

You’ll swear this is a lager with the fruity smooth taste that is provided in this old copper nearly the same color as the bottle brown pour. Thin head. n Light nose of ripe plums. light to medium body finishes fast. not a horrible way to end a wet squishy day in the hop yard.

The beer poured a hazed amber color with a beige head. Toasted malt with caramel make up the aroma and the flavor. Sweet aroma and flavor. Light bodied with a dry finish.

Bottle; poured a deep caramel-amber color with a pretty small head. Aroma of caramel, very ripe fruit, lightly toasted bread, with some earth. Flavor had something unique to it, I guess from the seed. Still it was rather a mundane beer that had some caramel maltiness, but nothing great in terms of flavor. That being said, unoffensive and a decent sessional.

Lots of malt in this beer. Some bread dough. Sweet with grain. A grittiness with some carob. Amber color. Pretty solid session beer, especially for $.79.

Bottle 330ml. Genuine flavour. Starts with a great aroma, nutty and grainy. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness, and average duration. Palate is velvety, with light-to-medium body. Brown colour, with a frothy white head.

DialSquare (5028) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 15, 2010
From an old rating note: 12oz bottle. Strong caramel malt aroma. Amber-brown pour. Nutty, malty, earthy and caramel in the taste. Smooth palate.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2010
Bottle:   Burnt caramel, quite translucent, no head, no lacing, this one appears as if its still.   Spicy nose, some honey, a little cereal and mash.   Blech, another average brew from Barons.   Definitely on the malty side, minor sweetness, cereal, aformentioned honey.   Flat on the tongue, otherwise moderate body, albeit leaning towards the thin side.   Sweetness lingers, some honey, and again with the cereal.   Very mealy beers they make.   What is Wattle Seed anyway?   Didn’t seem to make for all that interesting of a beer.   Needs some hops to balance it out.   Ugh...

Bottle: Dark amber colour with small head, has a caramel chocolaty aroma, malty flavour hint of hazelnut ,smooth ,medium slightly bitter finish. Very nice.

travita (5003) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 21, 2009
The look is amber in color, clear, and has an off white head. The smell is caramel, malts, grains, floral, and very bready. The taste is a lot of bread, malts, and caramel. Better than I thought.

macguy (146) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 6, 2009
Polished brown ale with a thin, quickly dissolving white head. Spicy nose; Deep and somewhat complex flavor. I’m not sure what a wattle seed is, but the flavor is complex and pretty yummy. It’s not my favorite style of beer but it’s entirely drinkable.
