The second Beer is DRAUGHT. It has more body than the Lager and is also darker. Here you can taste the whole dimension of the malt we are using. For this type we use four different types of malt and the fermentation is very different from all the other beers ( of course no details, otherwise we would have to shoot you).

On tap at Brauhaus Frings brewpub. Another nervous rating by stealth with the brew-master sitting at the table. Amber brown, thin ring head. Toffee, caramel aromas. Medium bitter, sour/acidity. Medium body, no carbonation, oily texture. Much better than any other NZ draught beer I have had.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 29, 2008
Draught at the brew pub, a deep brown colour of an ox-blood hue, with a filmy head. A sweetish caramal malt aroma. The malty palate is sweet, but it is a touch vinegary, suggesting that this might be past its best.

Papsoe (25069) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 17, 2008
(On tap) Clear, amber golden with an off-white head. Lightly burned and lightly acidic aroma. Light in body with weak notes of nuts and lightly burned malts. Dry finish with a discreet bitterness and again this vague acidity (the brewer tell he tunes the acidity up in his beers during summertime). A very unusual example of a NZ Draught, reminds me more of a Brown Ale although bottom fermented. 090208

Dark straw colour, malty aroma, very boring beer. Need to rerate next trip up north.
