Pours amber-brown with gigantic sediment (rice-grain sized and some smaller flakes) and a decent, lingering light-brown head. Nose is very weak and generic to brown ales. Flavor is decent, however, with brown sugar, slight roastiness, modest bitter hops, and some maple coming out on the front, fading to sticky pine and caramel. Finish continues to be sticky. Decent stuff, even if a bit pedestrian.

More stone fruits, sweet grain and bread malts, caramel, molasses, straw, hay, sweet oak, medium carbonation, medium bodied. Interesting. Keg at Quarryman, Sydney.
