COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: All Blacks NZPA er en New Zealand Pale Ale, som er baseret på de New Zealandske humler Pacific Gem og Nelson Sauvin. Pacific Gem er brugt grundet sin høj alpha syre, som bidrager med sin bløde bitterhed til øllet, og den efterhånden velkendte Nelson Sauvin er brugt grundet sine fantastiske aromatiske og smagsfulde karakterer.
Nelson Sauvin er brugt meget gavmildt i den senere del af humlingen for at give masser af smag og duft af denne fabelagtige humle. For at gøre øllet endnu mere indbydende har jeg tørhumlet den meget aggressivt hvilket efterlader en øl som går lige i næsen, smager meget af NZ humle, men uden at have for megen reel bitterhed.

Marketed as a New Zealand pale ale because of the use of New Zealand hops, but stylistically I would argue this fits the American pale ale category nonetheless. Creamy white, firm head, colour a warm and deep, misty amber; aroma of dried fruits, honey, citrus peel, resinous hops, spicy yeast; taste subduedly fruity, caramel- and nut-like malt with yeasty spicy tones and a very agreeable, interesting and complex, resinous hoppiness, creating a satisfyingly dry and long finish.

Draught @ Olutravintola Pikkulintu. Rated on 08.04.2011
Aroma is rather fresh and slightly sweet with hops, exotic fruits and some toasted notes. Flavour is sweetish and hoppy with exotic fruits and some ash. Nice, but I do not like the stinging bitterness here.

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 6, 2012
(Draught@Pikkulintu, rated 2011-04-07) Muddy red-brown with a firm, creamy head. Delicious, exotic Nelson Sauvin fruitiness in the nose, with a touch of bitter woodiness. Crisply and freshly hoppy flavor with some stingy ashiness. Plenty of exotic fruit and hefty-malty body, but dry bitterness too dominating for me. Very mouth-drying aftertaste. Medium body, soft CO2. A quite successful brew with nice aromatic hoppiness, but overdone bitterness.

Leighton (11612) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2011
Draft at ACBF 2011. Pours a lightly hazy, rich gold with a strong, off-white head. Tropical fruit nose, salty hops. Good and balanced flavor, melons and salt, some honey sweetness and malt. Medium bodied with lively and cleansing carbonation. Clean, balanced finish, faintly dry, more tropical fruits, slight stickiness. Really good stuff.

fiulijn (15060) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 27, 2011
Draught at København Ølfestival 2010
Hazy amber color; creamy head. Very nice hops aroma: the fruits from the Nelson Sauvin, but also a sharp earthy touch, light manure, very light apricot jam (this is a different hop). The mouthfeel is dry, yet quite smooth (high carbonation too), dry toffee flavor, with strong bitterness: mix of mild resins, earthy touch extreme bitterness, extreme dryness, with astringent final. Not only it’s very good, but it would also go very well with food.

dEnk (3909) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 12, 2011
Aroma is Nelson Sauvin and yeast. Flavour is quite bitter of Nelson with a nice deep hop backing. Highly drinkable.

RexTalionis (2592) - FINLAND - MAY 3, 2011
At Pikkulintu, Helinki. Poured golden orange in colour with thin white head. Leaves a nice lacing on the glass. Very easy to drink. Fruity and great flavour over all. Tropical fruits as well.

Adenila (1557) - DENMARK - APR 27, 2011
Tap at Mikkellerbar. With Nelson being one of my favorite hops so far, this one obviously fell into my liking. Hazy yellow/orange with a thick white head. Full nelson aroma of grape fruit and sweet mandarine. Soft and bitter flavor again with the lovely hop notes comming thtough in the moutharoma. When its fresh its amazing.

SirLimpsalot (2313) - SWEDEN - APR 21, 2011
hade en ganska sötaktig koladoft och en lite funky smak av kola, humle, örter/kryddor. Ganska kryddstärk eftersmak.
