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

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

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.

I do have a cold, but I got very strong hops and a tartness without a bitterness that is quite pleasant. I donít get any maltiness (I d have a cold). This is a bit good, Iím enjoying it. A strong, i.e., well crafted, beer

Brodies_Best (260) - Auckland Central, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 11, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2012 Pours amber with tan head. Sweet aroma with hints of coriander. Initial taste is nutty leading to a caramel biscuity bitter
