Dull dark amber. Light fruity aroma with some crystal malt chewiness. Predominantly chewy character, with fresh malts. Ok, probably a bit too chewy and doesnít showcase this NZ Saaz at all.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an inviting burnt orange with a moderate foamy white head. Very fragrant hop nose, loads of citrus oil and greenstick character. Hops are in the drivers seat across the palate, aromatic and fruity, balanced by a light cushion of sweet toffee malts. Slightly nutty, not too sweet and not too bitter. Flavourful but quite light. Very nice!
