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.

Hazy gold beer, tidy pale cream colour head. Palate is smooth and mildly dry, reasonable fine carbonation. Smooth malts, some creamy sweetness but also with a pretty odd grainy tang. Piney hops, trace of spice. Banana esters on the smooth finish. It’s odd for sure but by no means terrible. I just don’t understand why importers are bringing this stuff in when there are far better breweries in NZ.

yngwie (16482) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 24, 2015
Bottle. Close to clear in the glass, dark golden in color and with a small, off-white head. The aroma is quite malty and oxidized, with some perfumed hints and grass. It’s medium to full-bodied and lightly carbonated, semi-sweet, with malty flavors. Bread, oxidized malts and grass. Some bitterness. Lasting finish. Not much IPA’ish going on here. 150524
