An Australian style bitter ale with a deeply delicious full malt flavour and pleasant hop bitterness from Tasmanian and New Zealand hops. An easy drinking and thirst quenching beer. The owners favourite, this great ale won Australia’s best ale in 2001 at the National Festival of Beers for the second time along with numerous International medals including 3 Gold in 2003 and the Premiers Trophy for Victoria’s Best Beer. More awards in 2005-2010. Excellent with all steaks, roast lamb and Aussie game meats. Top with Shitake mushrooms seared in this great ale for a real treat.

[email protected] Porterhouse, Stockholm (As Gippsland Bitter). Amber colour, small white head. Aroma is berries, wood and some slight fruityness. Flavour is the same with a pleasant bitterness to it. Quite pleasant, even though it’s rather berryish in the flavour.

UPDATED: JUN 10, 2004 Bottled, thanks duff! Amber colour. Intense raisin aroma. Sweet with clean, hard crystal malt character. Dough, raisins and prunes dominate. Low bitterness.

On tap at the White Horse, Parsons Green. Cloudy gold beer. Residual white head. Dry palate. Dry malt with a touch of honey and some very unwelcome sulphur. Minerals. A bit of orange hop and a mildly bitter aftertaste. Finishes dry. Drinkable depite the suphur.

Leighton (21494) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2010
Tap at the White Horse Pub, London. Pours a light, hazy amber with a soft, white head. Delicate hop aroma with some bread. Lightly sweet, with ome grass and herbal bitterness. Light to medium in body with soft carbonation. Finihses with pale, bready malts and light, herby hops. Perhaps a little above average.

rlgk (18850) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 11, 2010
Draught at Monks, Sveavägen, Stockholm. Amber/orange color, small head. Candy aroma, sweetish, toffee, vinegar notes. Malty flavor, sourish notes. Buitter, some hops. Vinous, maybe about to get old?

imdownthepub (14767) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2010
Bottle conditioned, 330ml from Booths at Poulton, Lancs. Clouded amber to bronze with slight head. Great find in Booths, get yourselves along to one, unfortunately not fully settled out as it was quite lively on the pour. The beer proved to be sweeter than expected, quite fruity with a sweet strawberry note and a toffee caramel. Could have done with more hops, but reasonable drinking.

GT (10000) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 19, 2010
330mL. Pours a hazy orange with a decent, semi-rocky, creme head. Good lace. Aroma of grass, orange perfume, toffee, toast, light caramel, something a bit sickly. Taste is grassy bitter, dry, watery, soapy, light toast and cracker.

JoeMcPhee (9427) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 3, 2005
330 ml bottle. Cloudy orange beer, with thin white head. Nice spicy hop aroma with lots of fruity yeastiness as well. A touch of apple and pineapple as well. A slight soapiness that I don’t really care for. A bit of dustiness. In the mouth it is a fruity, apple, pineapple as well as some lightly toasted malts. Finishes quite sweet. Would be awesome without those few flaws.

Svesse (8615) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - NOV 6, 2010
(Draught at Monk’s Porterhouse, Stockholm, 2 Nov 2010) Golden amber colour with creamy, beige head. Malty nose with bread, buttery malt and cream toffee. Malty, slightly fruity taste with notes of bready malt, butter, cream toffee and a mild citric bitterness in the finish. Light body, with a touch of sweetness. Nothing spectacular, but highly drinkable and quite tasty.

more amber than gold. pleasantly citric but a little thin. pretty swiggable
