345ml bottle. Best Before 06/08/2015. Medium / deep amber colour, generous light tan head which eventually reduced to a ring and left traces of lacing. Aroma of pine, citrus, malt and caramel. Medium bitterness and sweetness. Medium body, sticky texture and a lingering, chewy, nutty, bitterness in the finish. I’ve had this before and didn’t think it was much chop but was pleasantly surprised this time around. 8 Morboso (146) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 26, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2015 Revisited and believe this is quite a good amber ale for the price, light to med body with a a nice malt bitterness. Only letdown is the carbonation which is a bit mineral fizz that doesn’t last, if it had a superior carbonation and a creamy head it would be a winner. From bottle.

345ml bottle into glass. Toffee malt nose. Nice. Deep amber with lasting tan head. Smooth toffee malt taste with nice bitter coffee finish. This is nice. Sissio (1650) - Orsenigo, ITALY - JAN 9, 2015

An average beer, nothing special but drinkable.

From a bottle. Pours a dark brown, tiny head, big malty aroma, very smooth with peaty malt flavours. Not too bad at all.

Mid-amber body, off-white head quickly dissipates into a small ring.
Moderate intensity aroma; toffee, nutty malt, light toastiness.
Medium bodied affair, reasonable carbonation, bit of texture to chew on.
Lightly sweet malt body with flavours of toasted nut and brown toffee. Relatively firm bitterness on a minerally finish with a hint of hop spice.
Pretty decent entry level amber, for what it’s worth. Probably on par with the James Squire. rangamike (28) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 13, 2013
Clear amber colour with light head that didn’t last. Sweet at first, more sickly sugar than fruitiness. Hops follow this but not such a pleasant aftertaste. Can only drink one, no more. Shark_Pants (743) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 23, 2013
Pours burnt orange color. Nose is toffee, mandarin peel & pot pourri. Taste is burnt caramel, grapefruit and some cardboard. Bitter finish. Kinda like a barley wine blended with a bitter. Not bad but don't think it completely works.

Bottle - pours deep orange with a thin white head. Some caramel malt and treacle. Sweet up front then a slight dry finish, over very quickly . MarkMaclean (48) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 4, 2013
Nice thinning head, good aroma and great bitterness. Lively gas with very fine bubbles. Very quaffable.
