Lacking in Aroma this has the look and the taste of a pretty good beer.
I was dubious that this was a "throw the left-overs together and call it a special beer" but it isn’t.
After a couple of sweeter Belgium beers this is a welcome and pleasing change of pace,
Very nice cage and cork delivery, very nice in the glass, get in!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Beerfest Asia, Singapore on 25/06/15. 50cl corked bottle, shared. Hazy amber colour with a small white head which quickly dissipates. Sweet aroma of malt,, wheat and banana. Lightly hopped, flavour of malt, fruit. Slightly bittersweet aftertaste, with wine notes, a tad ordinary. Not really an English IPA in my book.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Cloudy dark amber color, beige head cover, curtain of lace. Aroma of malt. Taste is edgy malt that adds clear, but hardly overpowering, hops on the swallow, both malt and hops gently moving to a medium finish. Not strong at all, but balanced, interesting, and enjoyable. Recommended.

Had this one on tap a while ago: loved it. Trying in bottle now and I feel it hasn’t reached the same heights. Spicy fruity nose with some malt backing. Deep orange hazy body, good lacing and head retention. Taste is malty, a little bit metallic and with a good hint of bitterness. Definitely truer to an english ale style than an APA or IPA; but with the uniqueness of NZ hops. Nice creamy mouthfeel. Medium length bitter aftertaste

Quite nice, but I won’t buy it again. Good hoppy aroma, but it sometimes seemed to hide behind the malt. Given the hop pedigree, I expected more, but I guess as this is an English Ale, not an IPA, I shouldn’t expect this. Worth experimenting with, but I much preferred the Moa White IPA and Moa South Pacific Pale Ale

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a 12.7 OZ bottle into a int glass.
Aroma- Hops then some malt and a little floral presence.
Appearance- Pours a murky amber color with a small off-white head.
Taste- Has an OK hops and yeast flavor
Palate- A medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Has a buttery texture to it.
Overall- An average beer, I probably won’t drink this again.

The combination of different malts and the fact that it's fermentation is finished in the bottle make this a distinctive english ale born in New Zealand..

Deep amber appearance; crisp aroma, yet reminiscent of a horse stable. The hop is clean and warming, which you expect of a winter ale. Palate is complex, perhaps a touch bitter on its own, next time I would couple it with a a richly spiced meal to cleanse and balance the truly earthy nature of the brew. Definitely would drink again, but needs a food pairing. Another feather in the MOA brewing hat. **please roll before opening.

Cerveja estava claramente oxidada. Avermelhada / Âmbar, ausência total de espuma. Aroma resinoso e só, não capitei ésteres, o que se repetiu no sabor. Zero de carbonatação, amargor médio, corpo médio-alto. Aftertaste doce.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Earthy, rusty hops, with plenty of malt backbone to really prove its English roots. Finishes with a nice lingering bitterness.
