3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2016-05-20. Crisp dark yellow body with a small beige head, light lacing. Aroma is pleasantly fruity, citrus peel and tropical fruit. Flavour is moderately bitter throughout, interesting hop character, muddled but nice tropical fruit notes, some grass, moderate pale malt throughout. Sort of earthy not quite resiny quality lingers in the finish and aftertaste. Average bodied palate, good carbonation. Not bad. 7/3-4/7/3/14-15 On tap at The Brewery, Christchurch, NZ.

A perfume like floral aroma with distinctive citrus notes, hints of tropical fruit and hops. Pours a good looking clear gold color with a lasting white well laced head. A floral hops taste with a dry feel and a bitter hops finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at pier side cafe. Herbal and resinous hop aroma with mild caramel notes. Taste is of caramel malt with a hearty bitter bite. I think the draft lines could use a cleaning, but the beer is still quite good. I prefer this on a hand pull. Too much carbonation on tap.

This is a superb beer. Not least because it held up well when following a Quad IPA! Alluring aroma and full, balanced flavour makes this my favourite Cassel’s brew (so far).

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I wasn't sure if one malt could hold up cascade hops on it's own, but this is a well balanced, flavourful, and sessionable brew. Cascade, as always, is great on the nose. It is easy on the palate, and finishes with a dry, but not too dry, finish. Thoroughly enjoyed.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Keg - Brothers Beer, Auckland. 5.5%. Poured a lively golden amber with a small but lasting white head that left a uniform lace down the glass. Bright, fresh citrus and tropical fruit characters across both aroma and flavour with a lean towards a resinous bitterness in the finish on the palate. Balancing pale malt complexities develop, particularly aroma-wise. Light to medium body, crisp palate effervescence and a finish that lingers submitting eventually to an aftertaste of biscuity malt sweetness. A perfect thirst-slaking drop.
