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.
