330ml bottle. Pours deep gold. Lemon, super sweet syrup, maybe a bit herbal, super bitter metallic stuff, hot alcohol finish. Bit harsh. Struggle to finish. hawthorne00 (4351) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 23, 2017
Bottle. Gold with a white head that lasts very well. Aroma of melons, fairy floss, paper, antiseptic. Very sweet with strong bitterness that come flooding in at the end. Both the fruity and papery notes are subdued by the bitterness and a fair wallop of booze. Strong hay and crackery malt sweetness, some herbal and antiseptic notes. IIRC the AT-AT was a large, easily tripped-up robot cow in Star Wars. This is certainly one to make you stumble before muppets. Choos (755) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - JAN 21, 2017

Pours a cloudy lightish golden with a fluffy white head. Nose is lots of fresh hop character, melon, peach, floral. Flavor is grainy, a little sweetness, herbal hop notes on the finish, but not absurdly bitter (at least to my palate), definite peach and stewed peach on the finish. Medium body, not as heavy as you might think. I’d agree that this is dangerously good drinking. Great flavor combined with clean pils malt notes, but all sort of amped up to the heights of 11%. Good stuff!
