COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The standard Kiwi beer, with a twist. It still has the mild malt and hop flavour / aroma, but unlike commercially produced ones ours is matured for sufficient time to allow the natural flavour to develop. Champion of Silver and 4 Bronzes at International Beer Awards.

Beers in this style are typically damned with faint praise... if they warrant any praise at all. NZ Draughts are usually sweet, brown and lacking any form of character, but this one has a bit more too it. This almost leans more toward its style descriptor as a Vienna with sweet biscuitiness and deeper amber colour.

The head is ok, the body orange-gold. It smells bit malty, airy. The taste is watery, mild, malty, bit creamy, grain
