On tap at Burleigh Brewing, pours a clear copper with a small white head. Aroma brings out bitter English hops upfront, with a thin biscuity malt backbone. Flavour is dry, with astringent English hops and metallic notes. Not very pleasant nor easy drinking. gnoff (10793) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 22, 2013

650ml bottle. Packaged similar to Rogue Ales offering with tghe etched label, nice touch and a first for a local craft brewery in Qld. Nice to se them trying something a bit different. Ruby copper colour with a loosely packed white head that collapses quickly. Faint caramel aroma with a grainy undertone. Smooth with a medium level of bittereness with a hint of peanuts in the flavour. Wim (4133) - Weelde, BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2015

Elaborate 650ml bottle. Copper, small light beige head that disappears fast. Fruity and chocolatey nose with some flowery hops evident. Actually undercarbonated. Quite malty and somewhat sweet, then a good somewhat bitter finish. I suspect some of the character of this beer was filtered away. gam (4037) - brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 2, 2010
Amber coloured ale medium head carbonation also aroma toffee caramel chocolate flavour smooth malt honey toffee solid tastes medium bitter sweetness is good finish smooth malt hopfruit medium bitter not bad drpimento (3726) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 11, 2014
On the better side of ok. Fun name. I like the roasty, toasty malt to balance the fruitiness of the hop and yeast. Poured a bit warm with a modest cream-colored, foamy, soon to settle head, and a little lace. Color is a clear brown amber with a few bubble trails. Aroma is toffee, toast malt, bit of fruit, dust. Flavor’s like nose, the roast is one of my favs, not much hop, a few odd components. Body/carbonation are good. Finish is like flavor, would be better a little more chilled, fairly drinkable.

Rusty amber in color. Sweet malt, light hop bitterness, a bit earthy. Medium bitterness overall with a solid malt backbone. Decent. Davros (3258) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 18, 2011
Pours coppery brown with a small quickly fading head.
Nose shows caramel, faint chocolate and nutty malt along with some soft spicy and earthy hops underneath.
Flavours are focussed on the aforementioned malty characters. Finishes quite sweet with a soft bitterness.
Could use more carbonation.
