Draught as a middy size at Macquarie Hotel, Sydney, on July 16, 2013.danlo (3067) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2013
Roasted, sweet, malty taste. Roasted, mineral aftertaste. Sort of fizzy high co2 mouthfeel, medium high mineral like bitterness. Clear dark brown color with red hues, light brown head. Sweet, mellow, malty, roasted scent.
330ml bottle. Brown-ruby amber colour, thin tan foam head and aroma of malt, abit roasted, with slight chocolate & biscuit notes. Taste is malty, sweetish, caramel, some fruitiness and lingering bitterness. Smooth mouth feel, light bodied, medium carbonation, bitter finish. OK. M_Sack (720) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 20, 2013
Deep toffee colour. Head quickly dissipates. Chocolate, a whiff of nuts and cherry cola sweetness. The roastiness lacking in the aroma is present immediately on the palate, again with chocolate and slight nutty flavours. A good level of bitterness keeps a fair amount of sweetness in check, allowing for an enjoyable cool night beer.

Pours a beautiful ruby red with off white head. Nose is sweet and malty, with red fruits like raspberry. Flavour is sweet, with a floral honey note. Finish us slightly smoky with some coffee bitterness. Body is light to medium, and the carbonation is a bit under for me. Pretty decent. Rangi (672) - NEW ZEALAND - APR 19, 2013
Not a bad ale and one that I go for at the australian pubs where the only other alternative is carlton. Some nice flavours but just not as deep as I want. Bit thin on the palate.

Not nearly as nice now as it was when I first tried it a few years ago. Dark, earthy tones, reasonable aroma of malt, but something lacking in palate and taste. Gramoit (490) - Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2013
Pretty average beer but not awful by any means, its one I have every now again. orange_3084 (127) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 26, 2013
On tap. Dark brown colour with thin head. Sweet malty aroma of chocolate, caramel and fruits. Quite thin bodied. Taste is sweet and slightly roasty. Nice smooth finish. KeefOz (1838) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - DEC 19, 2012
On tap at Story Bridge Hotel. Poured a translucent black with a red tint. It had a thin off-white bubble head and laced OK. Aroma of roasted grain and a touch of coffee. Taste sweet malt followed by a very faint hops bitterness. Medium body. Short smooth sweet finish. Overall quite sweet. jonnyguns (1105) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 8, 2012
Bottle. Look I reckon this beer is ok for what it's trying to do. Light cola, malt and Citrus aromas. Taste isn't huge but has light biscuit, caramel & citrus hop flavors. Little bitterness at the end. Not bad
