OStreetBrewery (120) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 1, 2006
Bottle from Rumbles . tasted Nov/06. Pours a hazy peach gold. Bit of a clarity issue going on. Big exuberant head that seems intent on leaving the pint. Complex aroma with citrisy hops, caramalt notes and hint of stonefruit. Hop flavour , a touch of malt sweetness and then a massive woody bitterness on the palate. Truly a bitter bitter. Good beer, perhaps a touch more malt on the mid palate would ballance it out alittle, but well worth trying.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 16, 2006
Tasted 14/08/2006. 500ml bottle from Rumble’s, Wellington. Copper, not quite bright, with a thick white long-lasting head. Very lacy. Sweet perfume of caramel, grainy pale malt and citrus. Well balanced and delicious. Luscious sweet malt in the mouth with a very strong, prickly spicy hop through the middle. Powerfully bitter in the finish, with an iron-like intensity that stops short of harshness. edium-full body and light carbonation give the beer a creamy mouthfeel. Excellent highly hopped pale ale, that’s travelled well.

A hazy orange beer with a huge off-white head. The flavor is sweet dusty from the hops. The flavor is sweet with primary notes of straw. An OK Bitter.

chriso (7365) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2004
500ml bottle (not bottle conditioned). Plenty of fluffy white head. Amber colour. An interesting hop combination, but while there is a slight spiciness, the aroma is rather insubstantial. The palate and finish is quite austerely dry. A refreshing drink, which I enjoyed, but not a lot of complexity. From beersinabox.com.
