Little Creatures Puffing BIlly

Good Australian beers with smoked malt - 0 : Beers that taste so bad it is almost like a sensation pain - 1

Why do Australian breweries put smoked malt at levels where someone may be forgiven it was an infection rather than intentional? People who don't want a smoked beer equally don't want a beer that is a little bit smoked. Go hard or that's it, no other option. Just go hard.

There's a bitterness that doesn't seem to be IBU related and an alcohol flavour that has no heat. This beer is terrible.

Yeah, I know these are a bit long in the tooth now and I did get it at Woolies, but bloody hell.

Heres the second can of Ao oni IPA being disposed of in a responsible manner.

Not quite the wow factor the first one had, but decent and a really nice fruity hop flavour profile. Might go back to Craft and get more (and the rest of the range).

I had a Puffing Billy the other day from a reputable bottle shop and while i thought it was quite tame, at the same time i found it to be clean in regards to any fermentation flaws, the malt character was enjoyable, enough bitterness to balance it.

The smoke was only like a whiff on the breeze, but i found the whole beer overall quite subtle and well balanced, a good INTRO into the style for NON BEER GEEKS.

The things you find in peoples fridges....

Aroma = metallic / rusted mouse piss / cage

Taste= Yes i did actually taste this ! :icon_vomit:

Metallic , soapy and thin. It kinda has this engine degreaser smell in the taste but on a lower level.

After an exhausting series of events with my sister's wedding, I managed to grab a 6 of big eye and a carton of tower 10 on my way to spend time with family. I'd prefer more variety and excitement, but a few years ago this would have simply been impossible.

Is the Rogue a 1L bottle? Have been looking for the Gunamatta without success, and had given up until I saw yours.
Rogue is a 2l growler. As far as i know, only available from Cellarbrations Carlisle and International Beer Shop in West Leederville. IBS in West Leederville has the grower $5 cheaper than Carlisle and its exchangeable for refills from their growler/squealer station.

Gunamatta came from Carlisle, IBS might have it, but I didnt look for it when there. One of the IBS guys can probabley chime in right about.......now

Celebrations Carlisle would have to have the largest range of Rogue beers I have seen (according to their website anyhow).

For those wondering, the Double Dead Guy Growler sells for $44.99, but is currently out of stock. I could not find the Gunnamatta, so maybe this has sold out as well.

Would also be interested in trying the "Criminally Bad Elf" - the accompanying story sounds good if that is any indication of the beer.

Mountain goat rare breed raphunzel.

Noice. They've got that funky aroma and taste nailed. The bitterness is not non-existent. Laces all the way to the top. Very good work mountain goat.
