3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I’d just like to start by pointing out that the cork is bloody difficult to get out and it’s the same on other Moa bottles. Looks good, but suffering fuck.
But anyway. Fluffy white head, hazy golden amber colour. Initially it smells a little foxy and musty and then there’s aromas of crystallised oranges and allspice. This is heavy weather beer indeed.
At first it’s a little astringent and then there’s those blue cheesy notes and oranges. It’s oaky, warming and intriguing. It’s just the ticket for a winter beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Usual caramel and toffee bitter ale aromas, surprise of grassy, spicy hops, which explains the name. Deep amber color, moderate carbonation. Sweet mellow start, long bitter finish. Crisp and crackling, although softer on departure. Way more actual bitterness than the usual English ESB, and thus more enjoyable.

Poured from bottle from blackwells. Cloudy dark orange. Tons of fluffy head. Dull malty aroma. Carmel bubbly and oak taste. Really odd. I guess good - haven't tried anything like it before

6th November 2013
Light haze on this deep amber beer. Small pale cream coloured head. Palate is softish but has light minerally carbonation. Airy malt with whisper of cream and toffee. Hops are also light. A little floralness with lesser marmalde and just a touch of grape. Joins up quite well but I wanted more from a 5 NZ hop beer!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Presented in a cork and cage bottle. Upon pouring, the light tan foam filled the 20+cm tall glass to the rim, retained a while, then slowly collapsed – visually unappealing! It produced a hazy dark coppery coloured liquid and the eventual thin head that remained laced well. Aroma of sweet malt plus very earthy hops which makes it spice like. Tastes earthy followed by tangy citrus (a mix of grapefruit and orange) notes which remain for some time after each sip. Light body. Quite smooth and then dry with the lingering citrus notes. The citrus notes make it interesting and at the same time unusual but overall it’s not my style.

Bottled. Darker orange in color with a whitish head. Cellar notes, bit of grassyness and some overripe berries. Sweetish taste with some toffee, forrest berries and grainy notes.
