Like an average homebrew
Deep red color, but has an astringency that we associate with Pride of Ringwood hops. Lively beading. “It tastes like a homebrew, and not a particularly good homebrew.” Needs a lot more time in the bottle, perhaps, but there's only so much maturation will achieve. The bottom line is that it lacks character. At more than $A10 a pop, you've got to question whether it is money well spent.
FOOTNOTE: Oliver cracked a bottle of this on New Year's Eve 2004 and found it to be a delicious beer. Age was kind to this beer. Very kind.
