3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle. I had a sample of this when it first came out and was suprised how good it was (and the dark as well). My summer holiday beer and now one of the best íregularí beers in the supermarket although not readily available. Attractive amber hue, slowly diminishing medium sized creamy beige head, good lacing. Very nice aromas; malty caramel base, toffee, fruity especially marmalade, smokey, rocky shore/kelp, fresh leather, manuka wood shavings. Well balanced flavour profile; medium to medium strong bitterness, medium sweetness with a long duration. Medium body, creamy oily texture, soft carbonation, long velvety smooth finish. Pretty good Iíd say.

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 :-)
