Disappointment in a glass. On tap at the Redoak brewhouse. Love red ales, but this was low on aroma, low on flavour with a leaning towards bitter rather than malt. Overall just not a nice tasting beer.

TedE (1424) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 5, 2015
Pint on tap at brew house. Slight sour hop nose. Brown/red beer with thin white head. Slight carbonation with malt background. Finish is faintly fruity, possibly served too cold.

vanvenlo (1909) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - NOV 1, 2013
(31-Dec-2006) Very light sweet hop aroma. Red-orange colour, okmhead and sheet lacing. Sweet hop and steely flavour. Thin mouthfeel with a bitter finish. Overall - Uneventful.

Clear amber with a small off-white head and some lacing. Aroma and tastes of toasted malts and caramel

gnoff (10793) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 15, 2013
Draught, sample, at Redoak Boutique Beer Cafe, Sydney, on July 10, 2013.
Clear brown color, off-white head. Sweet, malty, berry taste. Medium to fizzy mouthfeel, low bitterness. Mineral aftertaste. Sweet, gingerbread scent.

On tap at the brewery. Pretty simple beer has a nice aroma full of caramel, malts and brown sugar. Taste is quite sweet. Nothing outstanding but goes down easy.

magdalar (516) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - APR 13, 2012
Draught at Redoak Beer Boutique. Pours a clear red-orange with an offwhite head. Smells of caramel, a bit of malt, and some fruitiness. Tastes of a medium-heavy sweetness, medium-light bitter, and some fruitiness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, syrupy/oily texture. Refreshing.

ALLOVATE (3055) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 14, 2011
Tasting from late 2008.
Real hit and miss brewery this one. Pumps out so many different beers, not all were worth the effort!
Violent flurry out the bottle as the cap came off. Ends with a 50-50 beer and head in the glass. An ever-growing rocky tan head atop a (chill haze?, yeast haze?) not quite bright orangy copper body that is engulfed by carbonation. Nose has thick, treacly toffee, wads of butter and caramel. Palate is a bit racy, slick, thin, bitingly carbonated. Notes of orange, camphor and chamomile, some almond meal and souring malts. A little dusty, gritty grain late, some malt astringency on the swallow before fading off husky. Diacetyl linger is very disagreeable, layers the tongue. Nothing here to like, all over the show for such a simple style of beer. Ugh! (33cL, No date stamp, The Beer Store Morley)

floydian1 (1478) - FNQ, Australia, - JAN 29, 2010
On tap at Redoak. An orange-brown beer with a small white head. Nutty caramel malts on the nose with soft citrus hops. Tastes quite sweet with a medium body and lowish carbonation. Easily drinkable.

mkel07 (6239) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JAN 29, 2010
330ml bottle. Copper to light ruby colour with a thick collar of white foam made up of tiny compacted bubbles. Caramel malt notes tease the nostrils and complex smooth dry flavours abound. Almost wine like, sweet and lively.
