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.

Amber, rocky head, slight haze. Floral hop aroma with a delicate herbal quality. Earthy bitterness like old cascade, with caramel malts, light florals.

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?

mkel07 (3339) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 22, 2013
500ml bottle from BWS. Bright orange colour with a small head of foam. Aroma is quite modest with not a lot coming through. In the mouth the beer has good mouthfeel and body. Hints of vanilla in the flavour. Overall not too bad.

33cl bottle from Viking Line/Gabriella. Bb 07/14. Clear dark golden, thick white head. Herbal, leafy, some citrusy hops in aroma. Flavor is mainly malty, herbal, lagery grainy almost. Some distant hops. Thin, bitter short finish. 1,40€ /bottle,I have had worse beer much more expensive than this.

maneliquor (3070) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 21, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours orange with a two finger white head sorting on top. Goes massively downhill from here. Can’t smell any hops. Closer to stale bread. Taste....no hops. None. Fucking shithouse sums this beer up

Marduk (2658) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 27, 2014
330ml bottle, thanks Ravo! Clear amber color. Small size, white head, stays. Malty, papery aroma. Malty, black pepper in taste. Malty body. Although BB says that this is good to drink it feels old. Dead if you know what I mean.

ALLOVATE (2384) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 19, 2013
Look, I realise hops are expensive in both New Zealand and Australia but this is getting ridiculous with these macro’s shining the light on their ’generous’ hop use in their descriptions only to deliver such sub-par efforts as this one. I used an etched glass which was a fail as it quickly rose up and out the lip; a little for the glass and a lot for the kitchen counter. Settles an honourable orange amber and sparkling with a good two inches of plumage. Grain mainly on the nose; toasted wholemeal, pumpernickel (?), Weet-Bix™ cereal, just a fluff of spice. Nutty, husky, slightly phenolic, burnt toast and caramel blend on the palate doused by sticky and cloying marmalade-esque notes in back and into the linger Body is cumbersome and awkward as it warms becoming gammy. Yet another dreary Monteith’s effort. (50cL, BBE 07/13, BWS Ellenbrook)
