This pours from 330 ml bottle(best by 04/24/08) a clear amber brown with a 2 finger head of billowy foam that doesn't appear to be going any where soon. Yep, great head retention with some good lacing.
The smell is *very* malty. I can also smell notes of milk chocolate.
The taste is on the sweet side as I'm getting some caramel malt, chocolate, and another sweetness that I can't put into words properly. Must be the Wattle seed. OK, I'm getting some nutty notes now that I didn't notice in the initial sips...kind of like hazelnut(me a big fan of Rogue HN) and that's kicking up the drinkability factor for me but just a bit. This is not something I would want to try to session on. For a lack of better words, it's too unusual.
It has a medium mouthfeel, the carbonation is lightly done, and it finishes with a mix of sweetness and nuttiness and the mf gets a bit watery. I like it but I don't think I could drink more than 1 at a sitting. Maybe it will grow on me, who knows.
Cost: US$9.99 a six pack. Danev76 (505) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 14, 2014
Golden syrup aroma. Dark brown in colour with ok head. Chocolate malt flavor with excellent aftertaste. Low carbonation with medium body and good warmth. Jmar33 (210) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 22, 2014
Bottle. Nothing particularly special. The ’Australian’ flavour is there, but not in the way advertised: It has that lagery hop smell and thin mouthfeel. oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 14, 2013

(backlog). Reddish copper colour, mediumsized off-white to beige head, that leaves lace. Aroma is nutty, caramelly, some crystal maltyness as well as some spicyness. Flavour follows the same pattern, but considering it’s 5.8 %, it has got a very thin palate.
330ml bottle. I’m just updating my records. A very nice beer. Nice malty beer.

A: A tad lighter then a chestnut brown with a thin off-white bubbly head that was almost non-existent in a minute...
S: Caramel and coffee malts... faint floral hop background...
T: Mostly caramel flavored malts, coffee enters toward the middle before a soft hop finish...
M: Smooth and a tad thin for my liking...
O: Goes down easy, but that isn’t always the point...
