Mmm, fruity! Starts off with a smell like a lemon-tinged cheesecake with a passionfruit topping, but when in the mouth this amazing hoppiness slips in until it’s a long, linger citrusy bitter aftertaste. Maybe not "true to style" for a Golden Ale, but it’s differences and character make it just simply delicious. Nom.

On tap @ Brew Craft Beer Pub, Rotorua. New Zealand holiday 2011-12. Old notes. The aroma is a bit biscuity, bit flowery. Clear, golden coloured with a thin, white head. The taste is light bitter and has spice, hints of nutmeg, flowers. Okay.

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2011 Had in bottle from LK Cranford St. Pours pale gold with a white head that thins but never quite disappears. Aromas of intense passionfruit, spongecake and lemon curd. Flavours are at first sweet and unctuous and then WHAM! Hop bitterness in spadefuls that just gets more and more bitter. It sits on the palate and declares that it isn’t going away without intervention. Nice to see a golden ale with a bit of character for a change.
