330ml bottle. Coppery teak colour with a full caramel coloured foam crown. Sweet aromas of caramel, hops and malt. Smooth on the palate and very easy to drink as it is hoppy and mildly bitter. O good effort and I look forward to trying the rest of the range from Lobethal.

Tap. Quite a dark amber for the style with a small beige head. Aroma of nectarines, caramel, pine and kumquats. Creamy texture with a little too much fizz. Taste has some sweetish caramel with touches of stone fruits followed by a firm bitter finish. Good sessionable beer thats not polished but is balanced.

Clear reddy amber body with no head. Mainly light caramel showing in both aroma and taste. Not too sure about this beer need to try it again sometime.

Davros (3071) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 14, 2010
Pours ruby with a nice head that quickly fades to a layer. Aroma shows loads of juicy, fruity hops with some piney resin as well. A fair bit of clean malt is present. Lots of caramelised and almost toasty malt flavours show through, but seem almost harsh. Quite prominent bitterness, though the malt still overshadows. Carbonation is too high.

330ml bottle, Bottled April 2008. First thing I notice about this badboy is the colour of the body! Deep amber with a creamy off-white head...is this an American-style Amber ale? My suspicions are only confirmed when I take a whiff; big ripe stonefruits peach/nectarine, rich crystal malts toffee, caramel, mild roastiness, some grass in the background. Mouthfeel is fantastic, creamy moderate carbonation, excellent balance of malt sweetness and hop sharpness, lingering for a good while. Big hop character on the body, of the likes are very uncommon in Aussie APA clones; pine, lemon zest, peach pip, with a grainy crystal toffee sweetness standing up to the tyraid. Finishes the slightest bit astrigent with a bold bitterness and lingering hop tang. Fantastic! Very similiar to homebrewed American Amber ales ive tried. As far as large scale Aussie-made APAs go, this could well give Little Creatures a run for its money!

Bottle 330ml. Great beer. Aromas of caramel, cherries, and pine. Taste starts sweet, with bitterness gently taking over. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Dark amber, with a frothy head.

Stew41 (2005) - Phuket, THAILAND - JAN 19, 2010
Solid beer. Works the style well, particularly on the nose with great cut of hops and mildly caramalised malts. Slightly more aggressive to taste as some IPA-like metallic flavours come through. Quite fizzy, perhaps to a mild fault.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown!, AUSTRALIA - NOV 15, 2009
Draught at Kings Head Hotel, Adelaide. Dark amber with a small off white head. Nice fruity aroma of lychee and citrus and biscuit malt. The flavour is bursting with juicy hop flavours made up of tropical fruit and a good malt backbone of biscuit malt gives support. Smooth and bitter in the mouthfeel with a noticeable resiny hop presence. An extremely quaffable pale ale.

From Lobethal 330 ML bottle Dark orange amber color, half finger of off white head. Some lacing. Good head retention. Good caramel backbone with orange and grapefruit notes in nose and taste. Bitterness is more in the back of the palate. more syrupy orange and caramel in the front. Not a bad beer by any stretch.
