It’s interesting because it’s a new, smoother take on pale ale and it’s pale because we brewed it in a secret cave.

Simple, lagery, refreshing taste but not more and not less. Not very interesting beer.

I wouldn’t let another one pass my lips unless I was in an absolute desert. Its utter rubbish masquerading as a craft beer. Avoid - if not you will suffer the dire consequences of being sucked in by slick advertising junk.

shit beer, disapointing false advertising, especially when there are so many good pale ales out there.

Tap at Harry’s Place, pours a gold colour with a thin white head, weak fruit aroma, taste is light and fruity with a dry finish.

330ml bottle from The Beer Cellar 150513. Clear orange colour with some floral hop aromas and an even head. Smooth clean taste but not really that interesting.

I made a mistake choosing this beer to drink on a Friday night.... I am having a hard time chasing the taste... it is like drinking a bottle of water with a hint of beer. The aroma very faint which truly represent the taste of the beer itself. This beer seems to be too pale and not interesting!!!!

Was "forced" to try this on the interislander ferry between Wellington and Picton.. Typical captured audience being offered rubbish beer. I thought this beer would be the pick of a poor bunch. The label is full of marketing crap about how fanstasic the contents are. The beer had no flavour, aroma or mouth feel. It was a total dissapointment and no better than the other bland beers produced by Lion breweries. Save up your money for a decent beer....

What a disappointment. It’s a very uninteresting beer, with little flavour and not even a hint of bitterness to make it at least refreshing. A waste of a drink, I’m afraid. The only redeeming quality is the low alcohol content, making it OK to drink if you don’t want to get sloshed.

OMG Crafty Beggars! You guys are truly crafty, you almost had me believing that you actually made a beer with flavour! But no, because you’re not ’too crafty’, that would involve actually using hops. I almost caught a glimpse of some hop aroma there, but as quickly as it came, it was gone. Pale and Interesting?? No, more like Pale and Un-interesting.

Light orange in colour with thick white head. Nutty aroma. Hoppy flavour, short sharp metalic finish. Big boy trying to be craft brewer, yeah right :) !!!!
