Pretty forgettable, bland and insipid, but otherwise one of Monteiths’ best beers. If this is available, you’re in the wrong bar

MRMedellin (275) - Bogota, COLOMBIA - MAY 31, 2014
Clear amber copper beer with a small head, not too much aroma actually, just some fruity notes and grain ones, but is nothing special. Once is tasted the body is light, with a watery texture and a light hops flavor. As well as the ones I have tried from this brewery, the malt flavor is not really evident, and actually the flavor is a bit similar to the Monteits Original Ale

kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 13, 2014
From Tap in Fox Glacier. Beer served in Glacier temperature, perfect, I don’t want to wait for an hour.... The head is medium, body darkred-brown. It smells malty, bt hoppy, flowery. The taste is malty, flowery, ambermalty, mild. Bit boring, but drinkable.

chinchill (4327) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 21, 2013
From tap to mug in Franz Josef, NZ. Pours very clear reddish-brown with a durable beige head leaving patches of sticky lacing on the glass. Aroma and flavor: clean, light malty aroma and flavor with some spicy hops and hints of caramel and nuts. Feel: Medium-light body with crisp medium-high carbonation. O: well-crafted and balanced, although a bit too light on malt.

Andham (4) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 4, 2013 does not count
picked up in Melbourne (so not sure if there is a difference, possibly just the packaging). Nice and drinkable, (from the stubby) - lightly carbinated (small bubbles) , i get a (raspberry?) aroma, (have a light cold so could be why) - not the best red ale I have had, but definately no the worst. Quite drunkable (could see me having 1/2 doz)

lisagirl (264) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - APR 6, 2013
not much of an aroma, flavour a little bit of red berries on a sea of lightly bitter wash. very light as expected. fairly bland but drinkable.

Maris (1390) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - FEB 28, 2013
From a 330ml bottle on 28/2/2013. Pours a clear medium amber with a largish head. Not much to the aroma, just some mild malt tones. The flavour is okay, but relatively muted, with some sweet toffee, a bit of toast, and some stone fruit. The bitterness is light and the carbonation medium. Drinkable but far from exciting.
