Nice smell and taste. Has a bitter finish which would stop me drinking a lot ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330ml bottle. Clear copper-brown pour, ample dense beige head. Caramel malts, slightly toasty, fresh pine and floral hops on the nose. Balanced palate, malt sweetness up front, beady mouthfeel, medium body, moderate resinous dry hop finish. A great American-style amber ale.

Lovely piney aroma. Grapefruit and caramel with hint of vanilla on the palate. Bitterness just eclipses the malt, which is great. Creamy on the back palate. Great beer from one of the best, I say. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From bottle in tulip. Pours mahogany with beige head and aroma of berries, earthy hops and spice. Caramel malt sweetness is tempered by hop bitterness on the palate.

3.2

330ml bottle. Red/brown, white head. Floral, citrus, piney nose. Minimal bitterness.

3.9
CurlyJoe (363) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 10, 2016
Clear copper with white head. Honey, hops and rye in aroma. Bitterness in taste is not overwhelming, almost bread-y. Fresh and very easy to drink. Great beer to pair with a large variety of food.

3.3
LesArgen (383) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 8, 2016
The aroma brings out bread crumbs, honey, a little peach, some musk and a pinch of grapefruit. The grapefruit is strong on tasting, along with plenty of pine, pepper and some peach too. It’s a little thin though it has good length. A nice beer, but not a great one.
