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).

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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Taster, at CBD. Ultra fruity on the aroma, with peaches and lychees. Fruity and perfectly balanced with hoppy & grassy bitterness. I must have a pint on its own to enjoy it better.

Tap at source, subtle aroma of caramel and citrus. Nice and dry, surprisingly restrained hops well balanced with malts. Very refreshing, not very bitter aftertaste.

Ambar colour with a thin head that disappears quickly.
Fruity and citrus aroma well balanced. Hops notes.
It is a classic IPA, midium bitterness, fruity and tasteful. Good finish plenty of hop.
A great beer.
