330ml bottle @ Frankie’s Pizza Sydney which has a fine selection of craft beers but then proceeds to serve them in plastic glasses (WTF!?). A decent hoppy NZ pilsner with grains, lychee and Sauvignon grape elements on the nose and tongue. Pours clear bright golden with decent white head. Light-medium body with crisp refreshing finish. Not as good as Emerson’s version though.

Floral nz hops -rambutan and melon as well. Slightly doughy pale malt accent. Light and dry. Malts are understated but show a bit in the finish. Hops are slightly fruity, slightly woody. Nice.

Clear golden amber, large, quick settling head. Smells grassy and floral hops, a little pine, lemon and some malt. Tastes..hop fruitiness, grapefruit, some resinous hop bitterness. Crisp, good for a pilsner as they say.

Clear golden pour with a fluffy head. This beer travelled pretty far, i feel like it travelled pretty long too. Had a milk skunk scent, but still some grape and tropical fruit as well. Decent caramel malt body. Nice beer.

Bottle. A bit pricey in Calgary but it is a bit of a distance. Dark amber with a nice foam and lace. Good carbonation. Hoppy aroma, a bit of pepperiness and some caramel touches. Moderate malt body and a good hop flavour. Has a bit of that roughness I remember foundly from my first Urquells ten years ago. A bit of vegetable note in the finish and then a long hop aftertaste.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a honey gold colour with a thick foamy head that lasted and lasted and laced well. Moderate carbonation. Aroma strongly hops. Initail taste of hops which mellows and is followed by mild then stronger malts. Medium body. Soft in mouth then with a crisp and fresh finish. A very likeable drink.
