I quite like this because it is a biit unusual in some ways. The aroma is muted, and the initial taste is all malt sugar which give away to a nice balanced amount of bitterness. The result balance is a really nice drinking beer that could be quaffed and enjoyed a fair bit, except then you have a slightly stronger beer and that could lead you in to trouble on a sessions perhaps. The malt carries that bitterness and you get a nice lingering bitter in the mouth without a shirt of dry finish. I quite liked it really.

The head is ok, the body gold. It smells hoppy, bit fruity, bitter. The taste is hoppy, fruity, bit bitter, less malty. Ok

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2016 Grassy aroma in a golden amber pour. Hop forward balance to start and same through the body to the finish (which is a little too dry). A nice beer - but many other local ones of the same style are better.

The first pint of my pilgrimage to Hashigo Zake in Wellington and I was determined to drink local and drink something I hadnít tried before. This wee gem was pale amber with vestiges of white head that didnít last to the bottom of the glass. The aroma was of fragrant mandarin and oranges with some herbaceous spruce resin. The flavour was carried by a medium to light body with prickly carbonation and a gentle bitterness that grew and grew on the palate, lengthening the finish. This is a tasty beer that was crying out for a session, although I think the abv is a trifle too high. Otherwise, a lovely start.
