Cask, Keg & Bottle - Brewed with several varieties of New Zealand hops and created by a Kiwi, Head Brewer Matt Clarke. Passionfruit, mango and apricot aromas and a citrus bitterness are balanced by the sweetness of English Maris Otter barley to produce an extraordinary beer which showcases the unique hops of New Zealand.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2012
Bottle. Live rate. Brilliant gold with a soft, thinning white collar. Aroma of lime zest, mango, liquorice and...lager top. Like I’d know. Good stewed tea, liquorice and tropical notes rounded with biscuit and bitterness. Nice, but somehow disappointing.
