Beervana 2016. Medium body which exhibits strong hop flavours with a deep malt base. Very clean and easy to drink.

Hand pulled pint in the LBQ in Wellington (probably the best pub in the city). Not sure if itís cask conditioned. But kinds tastes like it is. Quite good- similar to some of the modern British cask ales that have been influenced by new world craft beers without losing their character. This one is light but more-ish.

The head is robust, the body light, red-orange and clear. It smells fruity, a bit flowery, bitter. The taste is hoparomatic, fruity, intensive flowery, bit citrus. Ok

A new take on a favourite beer that delivers crisp hops and fresh flavours with a full creamy head to top it off. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Really enjoyable subtle pale ale. Nice slightly full malt base with a subtle flavour of hops. Rated possibly a little higher because of the currie I had this beverage with. Really nice.

A simple, well-made, refreshing beer. Yes, it does have a bit of complexity if you want to go that deep, but to me this beer is just saying, "Quaff me now, Iím easy". Disclaimer: Iím drinking and reviewing this mild-mannered reporter of a beer immediately after sharing a palate-wrecking Hop Zombie with the missus, so maybe, just maybe, Iím missing a bit of subtlety.

seems a very well made stock standard pale ale to me, with just the right level of refreshing hop bitterness. it isnít unique but itís a refined example of the style.

Had to let it sit in my chalice before detecting a faint, surprising sweetness. "Pure Canterbury water" is listed on the labelís front-matter, and perhaps there is good reason: a slight viscosity or smoothness to the beerís texture is apparent, an unusual quality even for a seasoned pallet. More important, everything is well balanced, with a fine, lemony tang following a thick, spicy gulp.

Subtle hop floral aroma. Orange colour with nice head. Citrus flavours with soft hop finish. Very pleasant.
