2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
BB 3/2/14. Poured a translucent amber colour with a one-finger light beige foamy head that diminished quickly and laced poorly. Medium carbonation with small bubbles forming trails. Aroma moderately strong of sweet caramel malt and with mild spicy hops. Taste initially with some sweet malt followed by a mild plain hops bitterness. Light to medium body. Smooth with a long mildly hoppy bitterness after taste. Worth it.

Really surprising beer from the Kiwiís - rich , full bodied and with a lovely aroma in line with an Aussie pale Ale - I will now have to try their other beers in the range :-)

Bottle- Puors a clear dark amber color with a good tan head that fades to nice lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, some sweetness and dark fruit with a bit of spice. Taste of Roasted malt with some chocolate mixed in with dark fruit and bit of spice. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Fairly medium body, smooth and quite creamy, with a nice balance. Enjoyable beer. good for a couple. worth a try.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours cloudy amber orange with foamy thick off white head and decent lacing. Very sickly sweet caramel and burnt toffee malt aroma - biscuit, honey bread and grain with a light tropical, grassy hop character in the faint background. Light medium body, chewy caramel, light stonefruit hop presence and medium bitterness. Well balanced flavour and some fruity yeast esters - reminiscent of an old ale minus the dark malts. Satisfying.
