500ml bottle BB 10/17 Gold color with good head. Grainy, dusty, sawdust aroma - no honey to speak of. Mild bitterness with slight malt. Also soapy and quite sweet with a bland finish. Not one of their better Brews.

Restrained aroma in a golden amber pour. A brew that manages to hit the middle of the bat in most respects - and is a refreshing brew because of it.

Honey aroma. Clean malt flavor with some mead-like character. Color is golden with no head. Semi-sweet finish and high carbonation. Not bad for an afternoon barbecue.

Tap at Brothers Auckland. Pours a light gold colour, fruit aroma, taste is light with honey with a short dry finish.

Cantabrian (990) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 19, 2014
Although it looks uggly murky, this is a very nice beer, with honey in the aroma and flavour, plus hops - yes, floral - and a salty bitterness. Although everything is quite subtle, especially if served rather cold as I had it, crispy, it feels great for a session in an early summer evening. Quite a salty finish. Super cute beer.

The head is good, the body golden. It smells honey-bitter, bit hoppy, fresh, malty. The taste is honey-aromatic, hoppy, maltaromatic. Bit more bitter in the aftertaste.
