A Hoppy Best Bitter with a combination of flavours including nutty, biscuity characters from the 5 malts, fruity esters and the contrasting flavour of the NZ Saaz hops. These flavours meld together resulting in this intriguing and balanced beer.

On tap @ Macs pub at Quay, Auckland. New Zealand holiday 2011-12. Old notes. The aroma has some citric hoppiness, bit toasted maltiness. Clear, copper-amber coloured beer with not much of a head. The taste has light bitterness, bit toasted maltiness. Some carbonation, easy drinking.

Lots of floral fragrances give way quickly to marshmallow and honey, then finally some earthy notes including dirt, metal and sump oil. In the mouth it’s more hoppy with good length and a reasonable malt structure. It could probably do with a little more bite, but it’s an enjoyable drop.

Keg at shed 22 Brewbar, Wellington 7/1/13
Clear amber-brown with slight spicy apple aroma. Medium bodied, sweet caramel, some cardboard and astringent flavours and rasping bitter finish but little in the way of hop flavour. Another red ale I don’t like...

Very sessionable beverage. Tasty enough without being outstanding. Would be happy to drink when the rugby is on.

330ml bottle. Looks the part, clear copper pour with a nice beige/off-white head. Lovely mellow caramel malty nose with a decent hop background. Flavour follows aroma, biscuit, smooth caramel malt with a spray of nicely judged soft hops. Mouthfeel is soft, a touch creamy even, carbonation is minimal. Finish is long and luscious. Excellent beer. Extraordinarily good for its price point.

330 ml bottle. Pours dark amber with a thin head and a very lively carbonation. Nice floral and citrus hop smell. Roasted malty notes is what makes most of the flavour, with a lingering bitter finish. The body is very thin. Nice easy drinking beer.
