TedE (1249) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 30, 2015
330ml bottle into glass. Subdued malty nose. Copper coloured beer with solid two finger white head. Lots of tiny bubbles. Slight zing in the mouth, medium body. Initial hoppiness is followed by smoky malts then a light citric finish. Does taste like English ales. Delicious.

Copper pour with a thin white head. Fairly mild aroma, malt and not much else. Taste is malt, toffee, a little grapefruit and slightly bitter finish.

Morboso (146) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 13, 2015
Molasses and malt aroma, super smooth, only letdown by being overwhelmingly too sweet could have got a dud tho because it seemed like heaps of uncarbonated sugar was in mine

Malrider69 (155) - Central Coast, AUSTRALIA - JUN 7, 2014
Pours a nice amber/copper colour with a well defined and long-lasting head. The flavour is well-balanced and I would definitely recommend this beer.

mattyhennessy (376) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - MAR 23, 2014
Pours a hazy amber orange with a white head. Sweet malt aromas with toffee and caramel mixed with floral hop flavours. Light bodied with good carbonation. Sweeness of the malt is balanced well with the lingering floral hop finish

M_Sack (675) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 29, 2013
Tap @ brewery. Hazy amber with malt dominate aromas. Immediate strong malt followed by bitter hops with the malt beautifully blending into the background. Short finish but a powerful beer. Pick of the bunch I drunk at the brewery for a brewer who doesn't push the boundaries that modern day craft brewers do.

KeefOz (1801) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - MAR 21, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 24, 2016 24/5/2016 Poured a clouded dark amber with a one-finger beige coloured foamy head that retained OK and laced OK. Carbonation high and fine to medium. Aroma strongly of caramels, toffee and sweet dark fruits (dark stone fruit, raisins). Taste of sweet dark fruits, malt and caramel with a hint of bitterness. Light to medium body. Smooth with a bit of a syrupy mouthfeel, slightly dry and quite sweet with a mild citric bitterness on the finish. Like a sweet English ale - and distinctly different description when first tried. 21/3/2013 Poured a translucent golden amber colour with a one-finger creamy coloured foamy head that retained well and laced well. Moderate carbonation. Aroma mild of sweet malt. Taste fuller than aroma with slightly sweet malt followed by a dominating hops bitterness. Medium body. Long hops bitterness finish. More like an IPA
