3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Less a pale ale and more of a clunky crystal malt and garlic hop amber ale. Gum, garlic, shallots, tropical gum aroma... the hops have some resemblance to Simcoe and Citra, though no strong resin or Christmas tree or pet urine character, it’s still far outside of what I go for. Medium body, medium to heavy sweetness, medium bitterness with prickly hop acids, it’s not overly bitter but is strongly hoppy, and though it seems it’s hop-driven, it’s the malt that dominates: toasty, over-kilned and even smokey at times, a little bit like used cigarette filters. At first I thought this smoked malt character was in my head but I came back to the glass again and again and it’s definitely in the glass, so something went awry in the boil kettle. Finish is sweet and syrupy with a resemblance to Zebra Stripe gum with milder touches of gasoline (minus the alcohol association). Fits in nicely with the Session Pale Ale/IPA group though the hop bitterness seems lost in the sugar, and the hop aroma and flavor I don’t find appealing. From draft at Andrew Andrew in Auckland.

On tap at Manakau festival. Pours a slightly hazy yellow with a white diminishing head. Light sweetness with some bitterness. Light strawlike maltiness. Light, slightly grassy hoppiness with a citric hint. Light to medium bodied with a slightly creamy mouthfeel. Soft carbonation. Dry finish. I had a feeling that this festivl cask had a hint of diacetyl.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at the brew pub, an amber colour with a large foamy white head. A good hoppy aroma with plenty of juicy fruits. The palate is enjoyably dry and bitter. There is some hints of lemony citrus, but overall lacks a bit of flavour in my opinion.
