Tasted from handful at Volstead. This beer appeared hazy orange in colour with a temporary white head. Where it lacked in appearance (even though the colour was lovely), it made up for it in aroma with lush Seville orange marmalade, golden peaches and tangy passionfruit. There was just a faint suggestion of pepper as well. The aroma was good and strong and led to a gratifyingly robust flavour. Bitterness was plentiful, leading to a long finish. I reckon if this doesn’t sell out too quickly and is allowed to mature a bit and settle, it will overcome the haze and head issues. Lovely stuff, a perfect after-cricket pint.

Light drinking apa. Poured from tap. Pours golden Amber colour. Citrus aroma that follows through on taste. Light hop but nothing major. The citrus really comes through on the taste. Quite enjoyable. Flavours more powerful once had the chance settle and breathe.

Inviting citrus aroma in an amber pour. Superb example of the Antipodean take on the style. Restrained hop forward taste with sweet body and sustained clean finish. The best Beer Baroness brew (to my taste) so far.

Hm, I was glad to have a taster card for this brewery at the Chch Beer festival. This is a formidable pale ale, with the type of fruity (bitter hoppy) flavour and the resinous feel that I love. If only I did not get much of that cashew apple on the aroma.... I personally hate cashew apples and unfortunately the aroma was so pungent that it reminded me of that. Still, the beer was so good that I can live with that aroma.

The head is ok, the body gold-brown. It smells fruity, hoppy, bitter. The taste is bitter, hopintensive, bit malty. Intensive and nice. 3.6
