3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from mane liquor. Drunk from the stubby. Aromas of biscuit malts and subtle grapefruit/tropical hops. Pleasant light fruity smell. Taste is really easy going. Nice blend of caramel sweetness to go with the biscuit malts and light tropical fruit presence. Nice session beer!

clear light pale yellow body, medium white head. Grassy herbal Saazish aroma. Very tasty. Light body, very drinkable, dry bready pale malts, moderately spicy hopping. This beer is probably way under the radar, but definitely worth drinking. Only downside is the price.

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2009 Brand new beer on tap at the Malthouse. Pours a nice gold. Hops come through nicely but do not dominate, with a hint of fruit before. Very similar to Epic Pale Ale only easier to drink and much less malty. Very nice.

Thin looking pale yellow with a lasting white head. Floral passionfruit & sweet malty aromas. Thin meduim body with good carbonation. Dry hop finish. Pretty good pale lager.

Very easy going beer, with enough flavour to be enjoyable. Fine as a session beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours polished pale yellow, mediocre head - I usually pour straight down to get what is there but this was not all that excited to be there - and mediocre lacing; the hype - bursting with hop-fueled taste? These guys brew Mayhem and Armageddon. Who do they think they are kidding? OK, not wild. Tart-ish and sem-dry; nose has hints of fruit and earth; medium body and slightly oily
Mayhem and Armageddon are hard acts to follow - especially in the IIPA starved desolation of the Long-ish White Cloud. But this is a decent Pale Lager. I’d call it a good session beer - there are trains home and lots of taxis

330mL bottle enjoyed at Eureka in Dunedin.
Pours crystal clear, pale golden. Nice lacing.
Nice floral hop aroma, ever so slightly grassy with zesty citrus.
Flavours dominated by a great hoppy bitterness, some citrus (grapefruit) and herb notes and even hints of bubblegum. A mildly sweet malt balances.
Finishes slightly dry, clean and amazingly refreshing - especially after walking around Dunedin on a hot day!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours pale golden lemon with a nice white head. Nose is very inviting! Grassy, herbacious and citrussy all at the same time. Nelson Sauvin i assume? Palate translates beautifully, spicy, grassy, herbacious, citrussy with some underlying biscuity, grainy malt playing nothing more than a supporting role. Carbonation and palate weight is bang on, so damn good!

A decent lager here. Nice malt hop aroma. Taste Is fruity, tangy with a mild toffee sweetness. Not crisp or refreshing, but full flavoured for a lager.
