Clear light brown, deep amber colour with quickly reducing frothy head. Sweet malt aroma. Smooth sweet and satisfying biscuity smokey and toffee malt flavours combined with feint pine and fruit, almost fruitcake. Lasting backend bitterness. On a re-try a year or so later on, and it tastes even better than remembered. Agree that this is really a brown ale. A real treat.

Pours an inviting dark amber with a good and lasting light tan head. Aroma is sweet malt and toffee refreshingly cut by light citrus hops. Flavour is satisfyingly similar to aroma, sweet malts, toffee, with piney hops bitterness. Medium body, dense soft carbonation, finish is long and refreshing. Think I will be making this a semi-regular buy, loved it.

Skarecrow (592) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 4, 2017
330ml bottle from Dan Murphys Melbourne Chestnut brown color with great head and good carbonation. Aroma is toffee and biscuit malt but I could not discern any pine or grapefruit hop notes as per the label. Taste/palate is toffee/malt with mild bitterness and smooth finish. Not bad but reminded me more of a Brown Ale.

ThirstyBird (2858) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2017
At the Crown in Berko, pours very dark Amber with a tan head. The smell is roasted malt, dark fruit. Toasty, slightly smokey, some dark chocolate and dark fruit. The body is light/medium with fine, soft carbonation.

ANZUShophunter (401) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JAN 23, 2017
From bottle in tapered shaker. Pours reddish amber with nice frothy head. Citrus and pine hop aroma takes a while to kick in. Taste of caramel from the malt against significant hop bitterness in the finish. Quite rich for a brew under 5% abv.

UPDATED: DEC 25, 2016 Toffee/caramel aroma. Burnt caramel taste, not too sweet. Lots of flavour. Bitter finish.

330ml bottle to glass. Aroma of tropical fruits is large immediately upon opening the bottle, doesnt translate as well once poured. As the name suggest - red copper tones to the beer colour. Average head. Palate, clean crisp up front, a little bready towards the end. All good. Not a wow, beer - but nice and goes well with a really wide variety of foods. Good transition beer to try before plunging into a big beer. Welcome medium level alcohol for those days when you want to have a few. Great to take to a BBQ.

invinoveritas (148) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2016
Rich amber. Hoppy, fruity nose, massive grapefruit and pomelo on the tongue. Well carbonated without being excessively so. Quite good but perhaps needs a bit of spice or malty sweetness to balance out the citrus bitterness.

BrettC (13) - Flinders Chase, AUSTRALIA - OCT 31, 2016
A beautiful auburn color with a hoppy nose and malty initially giving way to bitterness. Also has quite a roasty flavor. Would say the mouthfeel is almost "chewy" in that it is quite substantial and I wanted to hold it on my tongue longer than usual. Fairly complex and would be more suitable in colder weather.

Great and rather interesting amber ale. Aroma of malt with caramel and biscuit; little fruitiness in the background. Mild and smoky flavour with some grapefruit.
