The beer that was originally conceived as what Hightail would be without any constraints is back. And we think it's an interesting barometer of how far and fast the craft beer scene is moving in Australia. While it was never big in alcohol content, when it first arrived, its upfront tropical hop aromas were the sort to take you aback with what the American Amber Ale quite different to most of what was coming out from local breweries. Now it arrives like an old friend popping into town for a catch up, no longer as crazy and out there as he once seemed, but no less enjoyable for that. A lovely blend of those fruity hops and caramel and toffee malts, it's a rich, seasonal quaffer for craft beer connoisseurs.
