smokey, caramel aroma’s dark amber colouring. minimal head, lightly bitter, salty, taste. A little bland :( light sweetness, full body, mild carbonation, abrupt finish. Average at best

From bottle in shaker. Pours clear, dark amber with 2 finger tan head and faint malt aroma. Nutty malt taste with faint sweet finish.

Bottle(s) into a nonic pint glass. No standout aroma possibly a slight toffee scent. Mid brown amber with mostly white head one finger thick. Did not last long. Slight lacing- very slight. On the thinner side of medium bodied. More flavour as ot warms but still fairly bland. Mostly sweet and very little bitterness. Carbonation clears the palate and left with some residual sweetness lingering. Might pass mustard if it was home brew, but only just, but as a commercial beer - pretty disappointing.

BB 22.05.16. Poured a crystal clear dark amber with a one- to two-finger off-white frothy head that retained well and laced OK. Carbonation moderate to high with medium sized bubbles. Aroma subtly of toffee-like malt but no obvious hops. Taste of sweet malt followed by citric tartness. Light body, watery and thin. Smooth and crisp while cold but with a slightly harsh tang on the finish. Poor example of an amber ale, a bit larger-like. Very similar in most aspects to the Ghost of Eyre Pale Ale.

Deep amber pour block head strong carbonation aromas grass toffee caramel stone fruit earthiness the flavours mild toffee earthiness hops but very mild tastes break down this beer the finish a pity about the mild tastes could have been a good amber

bottle from liquorland. hmmm, looks suspiciously like a macro beer dressed up to look micro, a la patron in the czech republic. the taste is macro anyway - tinny and toffeed, dull amber with an industrial tinge

Bottle - pours dark Amber . Aroma is toffee with citrus hop. Sweet malt taste. Bit watery palate.

TedE (1537) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 3, 2015
330ml bottle into schooner glass. Golden copper colour with two finger white head. Distant malt nose. Medium carbonation. Slightly bitter watery taste with a bit of malt sweetness and a tiny touch of floral hops in the finish. No world beater but not bad. If this was brewed by 3 guys in a shed out the back of Bungendore people would rate it higher. But it’s made by the biggest company in Australia (Wesfarmers) so confirmation bias is a factor in most Steamrail ratings.

Morboso (146) - AUSTRALIA - APR 23, 2015
Pretty poor example of an amber ale, not much of anything really, disappointed after being pleasantly surprised by the pale ale. Pretty much a very ordinary mass lager with a few barely noticeable token characteristics of an amber.

Full bodied? It’s thin and watery. I must admit to falling into the crafty trap on my way to a bbq. After having read that steamrail is basically coles homebrand, I’m annoyed that I gave them my money, partly because I feel like I’ve been deceived and partly because the beer is crap.

DeliriumT (545) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - SEP 18, 2014
Aroma of toast and biscuits. Flavour is sweet and bready. Body is thin and watery ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
