Really only a glorified nz draught. Lovely clarity, no head. Slight honey texture but pretty innocuous

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Keg - The Mousetrap, Taupo. An effervescent dark amber with a small, mostly lasting foamy white head. Mid-fruits, grain and caramel on the nose. Flavours of biscuit, bread dough and grain. Light to medium body, lively full carbonation and a short, subtly fruity, malty finish. Fair enough as a freebie for completing a skydive earlier in the day.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours dark amber with a small fading head.
Nose shows caramel with very soft spicy notes in the background. Very faint aroma.
Flavours are very similar; caramel and soft bready malt, along with a little honey.
Could use more carbonation.
Pretty devoid of hops seeing as they call this an American amber ale.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle. Looks good in the glass and has tempting aromas as well. Dull amber almost copper colour with a light sandy flat head. Biscuity caramal malt aroma dominates. A little light on flavour with a moderate amount of bitterness. Reasonably light in the mouth and on the palate.
