Thanks to ericandersnavy for sharing this beer. This is my first beer from the great country of New Zealand.
The beer pours an orange-brown color with a white head. The aroma is pretty basic with toffee malt. The flavor is more of the same, lots of toffee. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not bad, but nothing specials.
