Illawarra brewing co. ‘rust’ amber ale


imageOn tap at the brewery in Wollongong. Dark amber pour with subtle red hues, not much lacing to speak of. Love the aroma, hop-driven but balanced by the caramel and malt. We also picked up wafts of citrus and toffee. Mild carbonation. Huge hop profile for an amber ale. Bitter upfront with hints of pine and grapefruit, but mellows off into a slightly roasted toffee palate. 5.4% ABV
