candied sugar alright. the caramelised sweetness dominates the flavour with a touch of fruit and a hint of spice around. lighter feel though not too light for this style perhaps. overall okay.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted on tap at Cassel’s in a big gorgeous amber pint with no head at all. I let it sit and warm to room temperature and smelt spun candy, jersey caramel and dandelions. Smells good enough to drink. Upon drinking that caramel flavour develops into malt biscuits and and almost spicy spongecake and crunchy vegetable flavour. Hard to define, but tasty enough. The finish was a little short but was a beer worth going back for seconds but not entirely memorable.

Clear golden, little head. Bready, malt aroma and a litle hot when it warms in the late glass. Malty, light spices a little peppery with dominating biscuit and bread notes. OK

Bottle. Amber coloured with large white head. Aroma is very fruity with a slight pepper character. Bitter-sweet hop initially, then sweetish-dry malt follows. It was alright.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at Eureka, Dunedin. Pours hazy amber orange. Thin white head.
Aroma is quite hoppy, zesty citrus backed by caramely malt.
Flavour has a medium bitterness, caramel like malt, bit of spice. Unfortunately I got a bit of sulfur.

Draught at MarchFest 2009, Nelson. Pours golden with a small white head. Aroma of malt, biscuit and floral notes. The flavour is malt, biscuit and tropical fruit. Crisp and a light grassy mouthfeel. Medium bodied and finish smoothly. Very nice.
