2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUN 3, 2009 Bottle, pours a clear pale brown with a filmy off white head. A rich caramal malt aroma, but with an undercurrent of fruit and a touch of pepper. A strong hoppy bitterness on the palate that disappointingly thins out in the finish. The flavour at first is earthy malt with a noticeable sourness, though this also subsides in the swallow. Not a great beer, but something a little different for the NZ market.
