2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy yellow body with a medium creamy white head. Nose is grass, kiwi, grapefruit, straw, citric peel and hints of catty herbs, pale malts and tomato plant. Taste is dry citric peel tones, champagne yeast, pale malts, catty herbs, mild red fruits and hints of resin and straw. Medium body, crisp and dry finish. A bit too much on the bitter side for me; the citric-pale malts-champagne yeast combination doesn’t really work on my palate and the Nelson hop additions does nothing to relieve the feeling. I can see where this beer wants to go, but I don’t want to follow.

It is what it is really. Yellow gold in colour with a tinge of haze and a coarse white head. A nose full of lime and yellow grapefruit peel with just a hint of sour juiciness reflected in the flavour. It’s a tasty, elegant thing with some real steel to its flavour. Some real tartness there, like the tears of a failed ballerina.

Good easy drinking beer, malt upfront on the pallet with a clean and crisp finish to make this an enjoyable experience. Well worth the test.

500 ml bottle. Pours golden with good white head. Lines of bubbles. Aroma is fruity, crisp with hints of baking soda, very winey hop aroma, distinctive yeasty aromas as well. Taste is very much like wine. Bitter dry sweet aftertaste.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of grapefruit and ice wine grapes, lime rind, with a squirt of skunk. Flavour is hoppy bitter, a bit grassy, but still balanced with the same fruits as on the aroma (except the mustelid). Very creamy palate, nice for this lager. Nothing too exciting about the appearance, lemony gold with a creamy white head. Really much better than the average lager. I could drink more of this.

Went into this without reading description. Obvious skanky nelson Sauvin on the nose. Pale light base malt colouring. Pillowy foamy white head. Flavour is similar to nose enjoyable, boozy. Small amount of bitterness. Almost Saison like but without the spice. A beautiful well crafted beer, but I could really only drink the one and saviour that flavour.

Clear highly carbonated poor with fizzy white head. Pungent hops from start to Finnish. Tropical passion fruit - great kiwi hop flavour. Nice difference the highly hoped lager from the ale was that it seemed light not overly filling then again might have just been because it was the first beer of the day.
