Tap at Hashigo Zake. Pouring pale gold. Quite bready aroma and bit of yeast. Bit nutty on the back of the smell. Pretty light, thin body, kind of waterly, but crisp and bitter finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Straw gold with a whispy head. Yeasty sort of nose, some fresh dough with a bready malt backnote and faint hints of pineapple. More malt and thin tropical fruit notes with a dash of fresh cut grass. Finishes a little thin. Little underwhelmed by this and i get the feeling that fresher it would be really tasty - a fresh pint on a hot summers day and this might go down quite nicely. Tasty enough, if a little subdued

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2009 Draught at the brew pub, a slight haze to the golden colour with a white bubbly head. A swet citrus fruit hop aroma. A clean palate, with flowery and citrus fruit flavours. The finish is crisp and dry.

Pours pale gold and slightly hazy with a pillowy white head. Aroma is of mango and melon. As you sip, the best part of this beer reveals itself - the full, rounded, mouthfilling character. It’s incredibly moreish, with a sweet middle palate, fruity complexity, and late dry finish. One of the most refreshing beers in NZ.

Light yellow in colour, smokey flavour to begin with, gets better as warm up. Tropical aroma.
