Rich but slightly muddy amber colour. Pungent fruit and rich hop nose. OTT for what you’d expect from a traditional amber. Some resin, slight citrus (tangerine) and a hint of pithyness. Drinks big but passes the 6 pint test

Draught. While some seem to be a bit on the fence about this Amber, I’m loving it. It shouldn’t be sessionable, but it sure drinks like it. For me, I quite like the juxtaposition between the malt and the hops.

Lovely, brutally bitter but clean amber ale. Nice richness without any oxidation notes that are commonly found in ambers.

KapitiCritique (379) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - JUN 5, 2010
Beer Engine at Hashigo Zake Aroma: not overwhelming but hints of hops and malt which was a little disappointing given its advertised hop character; Appearance: amber, thin head and medium lacing; Taste: nicely bitter and fairly rounded taste but no real hint of sweetness. sourness or salt; Palate: carbonation - almost fizzy, slightly sticky, medium to heavy body; Overall: pleasant enough but not remarkable.

Delicious citrusy hops assault the nose at first sniff. On tasting it, it’s more like a hoppy american pale ale than an amber. It lacks some malt to back up the delicious hops, but that didn’t stop me drinking two pints and wishing I had time for two more. Another great beer from NZ’s newest brewer on the block.
