Niksko (351) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 11, 2013
330ml bottle.
Pours a clear golden with a finger of fine off white head.
Nose is lovely and fruity. Nose is dominated by mandarin and toffee, with light pineapple, orange and a hint of passionfruit. Theres a slightly sweet, earthy character too.
Flavour is pretty unusual for an American Pale Ale. The classic elements of the pine and citrus flavours are there, along with a bit of bitterness. However there’s also a fairly forward caramel and toffee component (like a scotch ale), as well as a little spiciness from the Motueka and a very subtle biscuit note on the finish.
Body is medium, and the beer lingers after you’ve swallowed.
Pretty interesting. Definitely not a traditional American Pale.
