4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at Brew on Quay. Clear orange-brown pour with a short, off-white head leaving moderate geographic lace. Initial nose is a bit like deodorant soap, but there is a notable spiciness with fruit and some medium-roast malt that is quite pleasant. Medium, silky body with fine carbonation that is almost nitrogen-like, a great swallow. Wood, nutmeg, cashews, weak pine hops and caramel. Finish is of medium length, fairly sweet and nutty. Lovely drop, one of the best ales I’ve had in NZ!

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rosewood to russet-copper in colour, but a head that all but disappears upon pouring. Nosing brings forth something very special. Roses, manuka, native timber on a bonfire, turkish delight, flowers, lime peel and caramel. This beer is an aromatic triumph.
It doesn’t stop at aroma though. All of those flavours appear in excelsis on the palate with full mouthfeel, but not sweet or cloying. This beer fills the mouth with soft, lingering bitterness.
There is everything to like. I feel no bias toward a beer from the land of my nativity (Golden Bay) because it speaks for itself an it makes me proud.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Amber, clear, well carbonated with a messy head of huge and tiny bubbles. Manuka dominates the aroma giving a floral, honey and tree sap character - like a hot day in the bush around Nelson Lakes. Taste is sweet, honeyed, slightly sugary, with ice tea flavours, tanins, spicy, medicinal, then a long malty, bitter finish. Complex feels like an understatement. Love to try this with BBQ meats, roast pork or spicy sausage. Although the description above says 4% my bottle is a 5% and I’m experiencing a more flavourful beer than some of the ratings here.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle
Aroma: Intriguing. It is manuka. There is a rich candy almost candy smell;
Appearance: reddish brown, thin head, minimal lacing;
Taste: semi sweet, a tiny bit bitter.
Palate: light to medium body, short finish, soft carbonation.
Overall: The aroma is much bigger than the taste and the palate. It promises more than it delivers. Seems to be a consistent quality of low alcohol beers.
