JuanFernandes88 (33) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 30, 2017
Fruity nose with big aromas of pine and resin , beautiful copper colour. First taste is slightly sweet and malty which leads to a big hop hit and a bitter finish.Dangerously drinkable for the style ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Maris (1487) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - APR 23, 2017
From a 330ml bottle on 23/4/2017. Pours a cloudy light amber with the barest of heads. Theres a touch of mild fruit on the nose. Flavour wise, theres some caramel malt and citrus and tropical fruit, followed by some pretty big resiny hops. Quite bold and flavoursome, but theres something missing from a balance perspective which prevents me from loving it. As a reference point, I thought the Fox Hat Red Pelt I had the other day more impressive and enjoyable.

Muggus69 (2414) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - APR 20, 2017
330mL bottle from Celebrations Foster, Vic. Rather striking looking red-copper beer with off-white head holding tightly. Punchy aroma - plenty of biscuity, dark caramelly, nutty malt in there with a heavy handed measure of hops: resin, ripe tropical fruits, cooked citrus. Full body, sticky, resiny, slick. Plenty of malt to chew on upfront - sweet chewy caramelly biscuits topped with nuts, combining with tropical fruits of ripe paw paw, mango, papaya, rockmelon, citrus & resiny sap. Stacks of bitterness on a long finish. Another tremendously classy brew from Feral!

danlo (3005) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2017
330ml bottle from Beer Cartel. Deep brown-orange amber course with a tan foam head leaving lacing and aroma of fruity citrus hops. Taste is malt caramel with tropical fruit and spicy citrus, orange, grapefruit & pine bitterness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry bitter finish. Nicely drinkable.

Dredd (905) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - MAR 31, 2017
Pour is copper red/orange with thin tan head. Aroma is a mix of pine, bitter orange. Flavour is biscuit malts, more orange, more pine and a long finish of pine hops. Initial finish was a bit acrid/burnt sugar, but that was possible due to being too cold.

danjs5 (212) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 26, 2017
Inviting copper amber shade with subtle tropical fruit, grassy hop and caramel nose. Initially intensly sweet with citris and pineapple fruit flavours and background caramel malts. Robust flavour, body and resinous sweetness in the finish leading to reasonable bitterness. This is a great beer.

Bottle - pours dark copper with a big white head. Aroma is pine, nettles, vitrus and caramel. Taste is nicely balanced hop and malt. Fruity citrus dry lingering finish.

fletchfighters (1507) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 15, 2017
330 ML bottle deep copper red, light tan head that quickly fades to a thin collar. Work it and get a slightly better head that fades away. Spotty lacing on the sides of the glass. Rather muted nose, some caramel, some pine and grapefruit. really subdued in the nose. Warmed caramel in the mouth. Some pine and grapefruit but a little more malt forward than thought this should be. Finishing with a kick of pine and grapefruit that has lingering bitterness. Medium body and good carbonation. Strength to beer is the finish. At least hops come in there. Reasonable but not exceptional

mkel07 (5742) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JAN 27, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2017 140117. On tap at The Scratch. A beer that I have been wanting to try for a while and finally got the opportunity to. A deep reddish copper colour in the glass with an even layer of foam. Bitter in the mouth and in the finish but in between there is a hint of caramel sweetness that come s through. Another good beer from Feral Brewing.
