COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A refreshing, fruity New Zealand-hopped aroma floats aloft a golden coloured English malt base and culminates in a smooth New Zealand-hopped bitterness. An easy drinking pale ale, showcasing both malt and hops in unbiased amounts.

This was quite a nice beer, but I had just finished a Parrotdog Bitterbitch, so this really was the younger sibling, who tries hard but will never beat the original. Think Owen and Ben Franks, or Sam and assorted other Whitelock brothers.

On tap at GABS Sydney. Excellent hoppy nose. Golden beer with solid white head. Many fine bubbles. Mineral water feel, great hoppy bitterness. Citric finish. Really good, moreish.

Capa (2307) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JAN 16, 2015
While I would generally say this is a rather standard, non-description English pale ale I would also add that it is quite well done and would not let you down upon having a glass. Lightly malty with crisp hops. Pleasant.

Why talk about beer with the usual ’the aroma is this, and it looks like this?. I trust you can view the beer for yourself and draw your own conclusions. I drink this beer every time I wait at Wellington airport, which is every few months or so. It is a very English beer, in that you can sip at it for an hour or more, as you wait out your airport time (or are at your local pub, presumably with bowl of pickled things at hand). It is not unpleasant warm: it has a complex clove-like taste. The hops are sharp yet understated, like herringbone.

Earplay (44) - NEW ZEALAND - OCT 12, 2014
Aroma more fruity than citrus, some pine. Taste is grapefruit and sweet pale malt to balance. Bitterness moderate. Great full mouthfeel. Enjoyable pale ale.

Bottle from Archive Beer Boutique July 2013. Golden amber colour with a soft white head. Malt driven but not overly flavoursome.

Pictish (10) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 15, 2014
Looks Ok with little to no head. Moderate fruity aroma- There’s guavas in there! Superbly balanced in the mouth and all works well. A good ale.

LesArgen (263) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 6, 2014
It has a really nice, dusty aroma of grapefruits, rockmelon, musk stick and a hint of dust. The hops are prominent but very smooth in the mouth. The main letdown is that it’s a little watery and a little short.

Niksko (485) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 28, 2014
Dark golden orange with a white head. Nose is passion fruit and citrus. Flavor is orange marmalade, caramel, pineapple, with a bitter and slightly piney finish. Pretty good.
