3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle transparent (white), 500 ml
Appearance: Pours cloudy but very lively orange with slightly orangy - hued. Thick, frothy, rather small but strong and longly lasting head. Head is regular in its structure with regular bubbles. Body is medium carbonated. There traces of lacing.
Aroma: Nice fruity, orangy - clementine hoppy touch from New, Zeland Gem and Hallertau hops, refreshing hints of lime. Aroma all in all is gentle not imposing and of a faint origin. Caramelly - malty character is hidden.
Flavour: Nice chewy front, slightly bitter on palate, aromatic mineral - fruity retronasal aroma, distinguishable notes of lime, orange, clementine, rounded taste thanks to carmelized malted barley geving chewy - malty ballancing character of the beer. Surprisingly complex when it comes to a simple bitter, maybe thanks to this New Zeland hoppy accent. Tangy, some grainy aftertaste, smooth texture, easy going, slightly salty. Finish duration is average.
Palate: Body is medium, texture is smooth, carbonation is medium to lively as beer seems slightly salty, finish feel is very clean and lightly to moderate astringent.

A bi on the tiny side - ales. Ho-hum. still some pungent bits et.al - & is still quite a clean drop.
I’d drink more - I dont think you can go to wrong on this if you’re a beer drink. Wanky raters many not dig it. It’s humble, yet true

Info: 500ml bottle, 1/4-2008
I am not sure whether this bottle was off, or if it is actually supposed to taste this bad. It is a clear bottle, so you never know if too much light might have ruined it.
