Typical of a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc wine, this wonderful South Pacific Ale has a great grassy nose with kiwi fruits in abundance. The wonderful fruity mouth gives way to a great bitter finish. 5.2%

5.2%ABV. South Pacific Pale Ale. Poured out of the bottle a pale cloudy blonde. Like a witbier. 4ºSRM. Nose has aromas of citrus, pine and sour pineapple. Mouthfeel is watery and carbonated. The palate is lightly sweet, with full bodied wheaty flavors of raw flour, bread dough and Wonder Bread. The finish is hoppy and brief. Pronounced, but not prolonged. A pleasant enough beer. Good for beginning hop heads.

Pours a very clear gold. Aroma is as you would expect tropical fruit and lightly hopped. Taste is a very pleasant pineapple, apricot and apple. Nice light beer with a slightly bitter and grassy aftertaste. Very nice.

Cybercat (4273) - Georgia, USA - OCT 18, 2015
An American Pale Ale brewed in England. Why not? We brew plenty of English style ales on this side of the Big Pond. Pours clear golden yellow with a thick, frothy, and rather persistent ivory head that sticks around for a while. Aroma has a definite malty note, with more than a hint of woody and bitter hops. Flavor features malty and white wine tones riding a base of woody hops that flash just a little bitterness. Sweetness is fruity and minimal. This is a distinctive beer. Mouthfeel features average fizz and body. Try tippling with Kipling.
