COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
There’s plenty of rich maltiness from this Pale Ale and higher-kilned malt combination. The Cascade and special New Zealand hops create a fruity aroma with a dose of bitterness to drive home the hop flavour. A beer for the IPA aficionado with a distinctly Kiwi style. Perfect for a moment spent catching up with old mates.

330ml bottle - surprise share - thanks!
Sticky mashy raw ESL aroma. Where are the hops? Plasticky. Rough. Not a good beer in any style. Messy big ESL malts. Actually, is this an ale? This is an ESL?
