UPDATED: DEC 6, 2017 I tried some cans from late 2017. I believe the recipe changed since the January 2017 cans. It is now watery, cardboard, hop-less and gross - **AVOID**!!!
Below is my review for a BB Jan 2018 can (Jan 2017 batch).
Aroma/Appearance/Taste/Palate/Overall: 8/4/9/5/18. 375mL can (contract brewed) into an oversized wine glass. Had several.
Appearance: Hazy amber with an off-white head. Very suitable colour to style. Fades to a ring with some lacing.
Aroma: Toffee, caramel, spice. Very distinctive.
Taste: Toffee and caramel malt. A little spicy. Subtle fruity apricot/Galaxy hops appear near the finish.
Mouthfeel: Perfect viscosity and perfect moderate carbonation.
Overall: Perfectly balanced and tasty. Definitely deserves to be a Top 50 amber ale. One of my top 5 beers. colui72 (1158) - HONG KONG - APR 5, 2017
Copper with a medium white head, lot of lacing. Aroma is quite malty, with ripe fruits and hops. Sweet an malty, lot of caramel, spices and a good hoppy balance (unusual for this style), which adds some tropical fruits and hints of citrus. Creamy and full bodied, easy to drink, very tasty. Pretty damn good! Kurtos (226) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 5, 2017

Mild aroma with hints of malt. Clear brown in colour with plenty of great brown/white head. Tastes of malt, bread, coffee and some hops for good measure. Fantastic drinking, great mouthfeel with perfect viscosity. All around tasty beer. danjs5 (357) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 9, 2016
Pours a deep cloudy amber with a thin head. Floral, melon, citris, caramel aroma. Front carbonation, backend malt and hops. Fresh mouthful and lingering sweet aftertaste. Clean palate. Very nice and we’ll balanced ale.
