On tap at Little Brewing, pours a cloudy golden orange with a medium beige head. Aroma brings out piney and citrusy hops, followed by biscuity malt. Flavour is clean, with piney hops and dry biscuity malt. Well-balanced and fresh. Like an American pale.

330mL. The champion from our blind tasting. Pours a clear to near hazy amber cinnamon with a massive, rocky, tan head with excellent retention and giant, poofy lace. Aroma of cinnnamon, honey, fresh orange, citrus zest, caramel. Taste was boozy, bitter, pretty in your face, rich, some relative alcohol warming even from a measly 5.4%. Really outstanding.

Bottle at the Australian Hotel in Sydney
Clear golden with a small off-white head and some lacing. Aroma is dusty caramel and floral. Flavors of dusty caramel and some mild pine bitterness
Ok, but too malty for me to enjoy.

bottle from the prince of wales bottle-o in the junction. pretty frothy emerging from the bottle; lightly hazed amber; some pine and citrus in the aroma trails off pretty quickly; modest bitterness, clean but a little flat

Another good beer from The Little Brewing Company. Poured with a good white head that lasted a while. Amber in colour with a medium body.

UPDATED: APR 4, 2011 Amber, slightly cloudy. Off-white head. Cascade hops, grapefruit and heaps of malt on the nose. Stone fruits, citrus, light caramel malt. Prominent but gentle hops. [3.7]

Bottle. Clear amber light beige head that fades to a coat. Grapefruit, kumquat, a little pine, caramel aroma. Stone fruit and light caramel under citrus and pine. Bitter finish is there but less pronounced than the initial aromatics.

Not bad, not bad. At first I was a little skeptical as the head was modest and aroma a bit funky. Poured at a good temperature with a smallish, cream-colored, thick, short lived head and some lace. Color is a clear honey amber with bubble trails. Aroma is malt, barn yard, funk. Flavor is way better with resiny hop in front, then tang, then a nice dose of sweet to balance. This beer grows on me the more I drink it, esp. if I ignore whiffing it. Body is very good; ditto carbonation. Finish is like flavor, of average length, no off qualities, super drinkable. Bravo!

maneliquor (3514) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 6, 2012
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Opaque amber pour with a small beige head. Rather sweet nose on this one. Candy and floral hops with a touch of citrus. Citrus in the taste with sweet candy and sweet toffee behind it all. Surprisingly has decent length. Pretty average

3.1
Davros (3246) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 25, 2009
Vibrant caramel pour with a reasonably sized head that receded rather quickly. Cascade hops are very prominent in the aroma, very green, citrusy and grassy. Malt is definitely not forgotten, quite sweet and clean, with some hints of caramel, and unfortunately, some grainy notes. Flavour is hop dominator (that’s what my notes say, perhaps the alcohol is hitting?), again very green, with some of the citrus coming through. Quite a pronounced hoppy bitterness (almost metallic at times, actually) but the finish really seems to be lacking, almost watery. Good carbonation but a little light on for body.
