This ale is called "Perfection" pale ale it is the ongoing refinement and search for perfection that earned this beer its name. With an aromatic hoppy nose,creamy,biscuity,and toffee followed by 45 IBU’s don’t miss this one at the Black Creek 1 Dodson st Blenheim.

500ml bottle. Pours a hazy medium amber, with a smallish off-white head, which lasts reasonably well, and leaves decent lacing. Savoury crispbread, toffee and faint grassy hops make up the aroma. Grass and mild resin hops notes up front lead into a mix of biscuit, toffee and burnt caramel malt in the mid-palate, with more mild resin hops coming into the finish. This is a pretty decent beer without being too groundbreaking.

Well over carbonated but the base beer looks and tastes ok. Not the best of renaissance though

Draught (fake cask?) at Dodson Street beer garden, Blenheim.
Pale amber, dry, moreish, clean, malt led with digestive biscuit and enough hops to balance.

Hazy amber beer, small white head. Crisp palate with a carbonated sting. Strong pale malt, with a mild raw taste. Orange hops bring the malt to heel and provide marmalade and a good bitter kick. Some fresh orange as well. Subtle dried fruits underneath, tangy. Crisp finish. Decent but needs more hop to be a top notch pale ale.

500ml bottle. Pours dark hazy golden colour, with lively off white colour head. Pleasant on the nose, nutty malt, floral hops, some doughy yeast. Good lively carbonation, maybe a little on the fizzy side. Coffee coming through in the tast, slightly roasted, fruity, very nice beer.

In bottle at Craig’s. Pours a golden colour with a decent white head. Aroma of white pepper, lemon, saison yeast, caramel and alcohol. Similar flavours with moderate carbonation and CO2 prickle and a foamy mouth-feel. Lovely.

I prefer this to the american pale ale they make. Still over carbonated though but a better beer all round

Bottle thanks to Harrisoni in Rome on our MesandSim’s stag do. Poured a clear dark gold amber. Pale ale aroma with some toffee and hops in the flavour. Pretty uneventful but certainly drinkable. It was up against some stiff competition that night though (thanks all, especially Alex). And to all who were there, how hot was that singer? Miaow.
