2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Exceedingly disappointing beer for the price and previous ratings. Poured a golden colour with a poor head, fairly hop driven but without the spiciness you usually get from APA’s thin body with an overwhelming flavour of bad homebrew. In fact i threw it out and opened up a homebrew and enjoyed it much more.

Golden, with a nice head. The aroma has fruity, hoppy, caramel and alcohol notes, and I find the same in the flavour, that has a lot of fruit notes. The finish is nice and bitter. The alcohol is a bit too dominant IMO.

Bottle. Pours a pale orange with a big foamy white head. Aroma is ligtly sweet, but with quite a lot of woody hops. Creamy mouthfeel and low carbonated. Taste is round, sweet, malty, but finishes quite bitter with a nice flowery, oaky and beechy edge.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle 50 cl) Slightly hazy amber with a small, neat, dense off-white head. Slightly fat hop aroma with the alcohol already showing here. Only medium-bodied, citrusy fresh notes - sort of vitamin-C style. Distinct, bitter finish and a rather dominant alcohol without the body to sustain it. 310706

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tasted 23/10/2005. 500ml bottle-conditioned, from Regional Wines and Spirits, Wellington.
Hazy, deep, yellow-gold with little visible carbonation and a large, white, head that collapses to a skinny film. Lovely little floaties prove this beer’s claim of being an unfiltered real ale. Citrus and that herbacious, noble hop, aroma dominate the nose. Some background hints of crystal malt. Dry, dry, dry... little malt shows through in the flavour, it’s all hops, aloe vera, pepper, lemon leaves. Reminiscent of my first homebrew lager - dry and very hoppy. Long, lingering, bitter finish. Well made but a bit over the top, for me, in the hop department. I’m sure would be appreciated by lovers of dry APA’s or lager drinkers looking to try an ale.
