Brewed and matured with generous quantities of distinctive Amercian hop varieties.

The return of an old favourite! First brewed as a festive brew for BrewNZ 2004 where it won two trophies; Festive Brew and the People’s Choice award. Now returning as a limited release. Sweet, biscuity, toasty malt flavours support the stonefruit, pine and citrus U.S. hop notes.

We enjoyed this beer however felt it would be more suited to drinking with some food to take the edge off the citrus hoppiness. Medium bodied and creamy with a lively head and bitter cleansing finish, Would enjoy again, ideally for entree with some salt and pepper squid or similar.

MBison (548) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - JUN 23, 2008
Bottle (500ml). Poured a hazy bronze with a dense, off-white, pillow-like head which lasted very well. Aroma was of piney hops with buttery biscuit malts, rock melon, honeydew, apricots and hints of caramel. Flavor was a good piney/citrus (orange) hop bitterness with dry biscuity malts, rock melon, apricots, light notes of caramel and resin in the finish. Medium bodied with medium carbonation, a dry/piney mouthfeel and a great finish. A superb brew from Emersons.

Århus2008. 50 cL bottle. Pours golden orange with a lacing white head. Aroma is solid spiced and hoppy. Flavour has the same strange herbal/vegetable note and nice fruity hoppy flavour following. Ends slight bitter and mildly spiced. Somewhat strange aroma and initial flavour but holds a nice hoppy finish.

Bottle @ Aarhus, 2008.
Pours deep, muddy orange amber with lottle floaties. Fine creamy off-white head. Aroma is exceptionally flowery, roses, grass and pine hops as well. Creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is lovely hoppy with a strong caramel background. Lots of flowers and some fruity hops as well. Long, staying aftertaste. Good APA.

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 1, 2008
500 ml bottle. Hazy copper colour. Tall white fluffy head that clings to the glass. Acidic nose with notes of brett. Seems like there is a slight infection in there. Citrusy and a hint of pine. Gentle crisp malty flavours at first, then a bold hoppy flavour from American hops. Towards the finish the bitterness shines through and lasts a long time. Medium-bodied, but there is quite a bit of malt in there. Much sweeter than the average APA, but overall it is nicely balanced.
