Our head brewer Sam Wilson created this beer in recognition of Bill Peck, who joined Rockdale Cider as a factory hand in the early 1950s. When Terry and Bev McCashin purchased the factory thirty years later, Bill was the factory manager. Bill was an integral part of a close knit teamat McCashinís Brewery in the early years. Sam describes this beer as rich with woody malt flavour thatís both sweet and dry. Layered with hop flavours and aromas to complement the crispness of the malt, it rounds off to a very tasty lingering finish.

What a mouthful of a name. A little thin in body and very dry, but not terrible.

Not a huge nose. Relatively light body and taste for a porter. Lots of crispness and some good kiwi hops coming through. Sadly a bit acidic for my taste, which is the risk of using dark malt

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2014 A decent example of the style that is a little light in taste but way lower in alcohol to match - which is not a bad trade off in the end.

Slightly hazy rosy dark appearance with a skim of head. Aromas of dusty mark malts, carob, cocoa and cola, some date, muscatele grape and cinnamon. The aroma is surprisingly complex, but is the flavour? Actually, yes: mellow and plummy, with gentle spices with a slight barrel-like oaky diacetyl. Itís a little bit hard to button down, but nonetheless, a pleasant drop that is probably best savoured on a moody autumn evening with pumpkin gnocchi.

Another good addition to the stable. Not as rich as the label promised, and ultimately doomed as people donít buy porters, this is a beer that does engage the senses. However not a session beer.

Cantabrian (1079) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 15, 2013
Brown, with a creamy head. Aromas of rasperries and oranges, very fruity and deceiving, as there was no fruits to be found in the flavour, except for a sharp grapefruit bitterness. Malts, a touch of hickory smoke, chars, dry grains from an old silo, grass and straw. Woody and dusty dry. The palate is very thin, even watery. I put it as a Porter (accidentaly I did it 3x!) but maybe it is a Black IPA, given the grassy bitterness. This is not of my taste, although it could be a favourite of Black IPA aficionados.
