COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

beer-yum (876) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 13, 2015
Restrained flowery aroma in a copper pour. Nicely balanced taste with clean bitter finish. Not bad for a mass market beer - and one of the best from this brewery.

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 itís more hoppy with good length and a reasonable malt structure. It could probably do with a little more bite, but itís an enjoyable drop.
