2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Quite a bit of lime on the palate, yet with a bit of an astringent lingering bitterness. For summer day (which unfortunately it is not)

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Extremely pale yellow-gold colour with a white head that dissipated in time. A good snort revealed lemongrass, peel and a local favourite - Lemon and Paeroa. In the mouth it is thin with a prickly carbonation with tart favours of the same aroma profiles. It is crisp and refreshing and ideally a summer quaffer... sadly, itís Autumn.
Please donít think for a moment that I didnít like this beer. Itís just that I am not the target market. There will be customers who rave about it and deservedly so.
