Doesnít come any better than this. Has great taste and palate, why go back to the boring mainstream beers when you can this this most places? Costs a touch more, but well and truly worth it.

Well crafted dark amber brew, good head melts down slow and slinky, balanced bitterness and sweet malts make this my fave amber so far. If you like Grolsh Amber, you may not like this. Nuts, yes hmm pistacio (no pun intended). Delish!!

So, so good. A smooth, drinkable combination of English bitter and American amber ale. Fruit flavors seem to well up from its depths, adding substance to the terrific palate. Only available from MJís beer club, sadly, or it would be a regular in my fridge. Sensational.

A fantastic beer that truly canít be appreciated till after 2 or 3 of them. A cooper coloured beer with a lovely hoppy aroma with a good malty taste. Good head retention that lasts from start to finish as the beer will continue to work from start to end. Not a beer that everyone will love due to its full body. But a true ale that gets better and better after each one.

Dr. Hahn has done it again with this great little beer. Great for savouring when eating out at restaraunts with red meats.

This is a nice ale to drink. Floral without being overpowering but a little light in the body. While a 5% beer it drinks a little like a tasty light beer. I certainly prefer a little more body in the beer, but for late summer afternoons by the pool...this is a cracker. Easy to enjoy and easy to get, which certainly helps.

Medium amber color, small head. A medium bodied amber ale. Nicely malty and slightly hoppy. A mild yet full flavored ale. Rich, smooth taste. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is malty and slightly bitter. Nice beer. Flavorful, light and refreshing.

A beautiful beer, crafted with just the right balance of flavour, colour and texture. Not too heavy yet with enough body to enable it to be enjoyed slowly. A sensational beer.

Itís good to see that this drop is hitting the pub taps and is in plentiful supply. This beer now gives the drinker a real choice apart from the multi-brand single style Pilsners available at most outlets. Pours a rich amber colour. Sweet malty aroma and very inoffensive bittering rounds this beer off just nicely. Easy drinking excellent example of its style if perhaps just a little under hopped.
