NOTE: can of 5.5% with same name and image.Poured a murky copper that light had trouble peering through, with good sized creamy off-white head that stayed longer than my mother-in-law. Aroma is mainly passion fruit, with malty biscuit and spice. Flavour has an interesting slipperydip progression. At first bitter pine, dipping down to sweet malt, then back up again to drier piny hops. Full body, smooth/oily/creamy mouthfeel with some liveliness to carbonation, and a lovingly long finish.

Very red, plenty of frothy, lacy head. Aroma is lots of hops, semi-sweet bitter citrus. Lots of different flavours, pine and fruit from the hops, sweet biscuit and caramel from the malts, and a rusty, burnt copper taste from the rye. Heaps of flavour. Very tasty beer. Goes down smooth though and feel like most people would enjoy it. Favourite Dainton brew to date. charmarita (66) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 14, 2016
Pours honey red from tap with small creamy head. Aroma sweet Leatherwood honey. Taste delicately sweet with perfectly balanced bitterness. Palate smooth worth some liveliness. Wonderful beer no matter your preferred style. Itsumishi (49) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 20, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2016 From a stubbie. Pours a slightly cloudy deep copper with a big foamy head that slowly reduces to an oily covering. Aroma is fruity and big. Massive pine, grapefruit, passionfruit, biscuity malts. Taste is fruity at the front with a complex bitter finish. Passionfruit, caramel, toffee, pine, earth. Boozey taste comes through at the end, surprising for a beer under 5%. Palate is thick, oily and smooth. Scrumptious. M_Sack (762) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 12, 2016
Bottle. Murky, Deep Amber red. Cream head. No lacing. Huge aroma of earthy hope with citrus backnotes and a big malt bill. Earthy hops and big caramel malt flavours. The alcohol pokes out towards the end which detracts slightly. Wonderfully smooth mouthfeel. Fantastic beer.

Very good sub 5% beer. Vaguely caramel malt and some soft herbal malts. Sweetens up a little on the finish but otherwise a classy beer. Andrus86 (686) - Busselton, WA, AUSTRALIA - JUL 23, 2015
BOTTLE. Poured a ruby red with minimal white head.. Sweet sticky hops & malts on the nose, some BO.. Biscuit malts dominate, with some caramel malts, subtle hops towards the backend.. A little boozy aftertaste.. Sourced Pourhouse Dunsborough KeefOz (1890) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JUL 8, 2015
Poured a semi-opaque dark ruby red colour with a light tan collar that laced OK. Carbonation low and fine. Aroma lingers and is very nice of moderately strong fruity hops (tropical fruits, passionfruit) and a hint of spice. Taste is a nice mix of tropical fruit flavours with no one flavour being over-powering and underlying sweet malt plus a subdued bitterness. Light body. Smooth, clean, refreshing with a very slight bitterness on the finish. Very good. Jado (804) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - APR 26, 2015
From 330 ml bottle. Pours a hazy brick red with orange highlights and a soft off-white head. Aromas of raisins, biscuits, flowers and caramel. Taste starts out with apple and raisins before orange zest and peppery/spice bitterness emerges. Some citrus, caramel and a floral note towards the end. Very nice.

330mL bottle from Slowbeer
Pours a very attractive deep copper body, holding a persistent beige head.
Excellent nose; lots of hops - passionfruit, rockmelon, stone & tropical fruits, some pine-like spice, melding excellently with spicy rye notes of caraway & heavy toasted breads, toffee & nuts.
Smooth palate, slick, holds a fair more weight than the abv would suggest, subdued carbonation.
Delivers a solid nutty, toffee, somewhat grain malt body, hops a bit more subdued than aroma implied - subtle ripe tropical fruit & medium bitterness on the finish.
Very tasty Rye PA, well tempered, enough rye to keep things interesting.
