A tasty brew that provides a worthwhile difference from others the style. What mainstream beer should be (albeit wishfully).

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the source. Hazy golden yellow color, thick white head, solid lacing. Aroma of lemongrass and subtle fruit. Taste is citrus and light pineapple. Very drinkable.

the main flavour i got from this was passionfruit. very distinctively so. aside from that, there wasn’t an awful lot going on besides light bitterness, but it was a rather enjoyable sessionable ale.

Tasted on tap from the home of Four Avenues, Pomeroy’s in Christchurch. I had placed in front of me a golden amber pale ale with a white skim of head that left a film of lace most of the way down. There’s a ripe apricot colour and haze which I imagine will clear in time. It was served cold. Very cold. This had the effecting of numbing the aromas and so I had to leave the pint to warm somewhat. after a bit of time there was nearly ripe orchard fruits, Cox’s Orange Pippins peelings and sherbety malt. In the mouth there was good tingly carbonation and lusty flavours of apricot, guava, fruit leather and savoury pastries. A sessionable beer, this has a nice citrus tang of bitterness that seems to slightly pinch the sides of the tongue. It has the most important element of a session bitter, the ability to create the want to have another, which I do.
