If I’m not drinking Old95 this is my choice from the Emersons range (um, unless the Imperial Pilsen is on tap) A superb example of an IPA. My preference would be for another notch in ABV, say 6.2ish. However the 1812 just lolls around in your mouth like a quality beer should. I love the authentic cloudyness (subtle). Lovely golden amber colour. I often get a lemon (or could be lime) twist in this, great malty flavour but still fresh and crisp on the palate. Arguably NZs best IPA.

Muggus69 (1108) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - OCT 9, 2008
Review from old notes... Served slightly chilled in pilsener glass. The aroma is strong and interesting to say the least; bread, wood, sweet cake, pine needles, hops in a teabag. Very different. Pours a clean mid amber body with offwhite lace. Body is reasonably light but satisfying. Flavour takes a while to get going but once it’s on it’s well and truely on! The hops are unbelievably fresh with a solid piney presense. Roasted malt flavours also come through the developing and lingering hop dominance, however the bitterness is only moderate. There is a hop in here i’ve been of witness before. Possibly Pride of Ringwood or Green Bullet but it has an unmistakable presence and pretty much dominates the flavour, not that that is a bad thing. A very unique, and very New Zealander, take on the classic IPA.

Botella. Pours a hazy deep orange colour with a nice big creamy white long lasting steady head. Bit sweet fruity citric nice hoppy aroma. Quite good soft mouthfeel. The flavour has a nice fruity bit sweet hoppiness with citrus, a soft toasty maltiness and some pine. Dry long lasting bitter finish.

KiwiJonno (76) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 18, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2008 500mL bottle. Med-hop aroma. Poured a amber beer that was a tad hazy. Ok head though and not bad lasting. Low carb beer. Complex hop tastes, smoother malt to start with, with a strong tingling bitterness to finish. Probably my favourite IPA.

MBison (548) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - JUN 15, 2008
Bottle (500ml). Poured hazy copper with small chunks of sediment and a large, rocky, off-white head which lasted well. Aroma was of fresh fruity hops with stonefruits, lemon zest, mandarin, biscuity malts, toffee and some salt. Flavor was a tangy citrus hop bitterness with toffee malts, stonefruits, lemon zest and a dry, salty, biscuit-like finish. Medium bodied with medium carbonation, a dry/creamy mouthfeel and a good finish.

OJB (39) - Dunedin, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 7, 2008
The appearance was medium amber golden brown, with a strong head. There was a dry bitter yeasty aroma, and a strong hop flavour, and quite strong bitterness. This was a fresh hoppy style.

Eructoblaster (2851) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 4, 2008
Bottle - 500ml. Hazy amber body with low carbonation and a thin white creamy head. Nice malty/hoppy aroma with grapefruit, bready, and spicy hints. Sharp, very well balanced hoppy taste. It carries some fruity and malty notes. Texture is soft and finish is long, sharp and bitter. Very good example if IPA.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2008 Iíve had this a few times but itís never been my favourite Emersons beer but this one seems slightly better than previously...lovely malty aroma and on the palate it has the usual malt presence but it seems that the hop profile has been beefed up it has a great lingering bitterness that makes me glad i grabed this!
