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%

Extremely clear golden colour with a frothy white head and clinging lace. Spicy fruit hop and very appealing aroma. Smooth texture, lovely fruit hop flavour to this beer.

On tap at Local option. Aroma: Biscuit malts, lemony and soapy hops. Appearance: Hazy yellow with white foam, decent lacing. Taste is light and fruity, nice citrusy hops presence. Palate: Light bodied, soft carbonation. Overal: A very sessionnable ale!

Pint at the White Horse in Parsons Green (London). An accentuation of the hops, with a lot of grassiness. Would have liked a bit more malt backbone.

Woow! It’s a fantastic American Pale Ale. On bottle @Domus Birrae, it is very easy to drink, golden colour and medium carbonation. It is also a refreshing beer. Grapefruit aroma, white head. Caramel taste in the finish. So good!

dumontn (530) - St. Joseph, Michigan, USA - JUL 9, 2011
Appearance is pale gold with slight haze and minimal head, very odd appearance for pale ales, which are generally a richer amber. Aroma is pungent, stanky hops and only a hint of malt backbone. Taste reminds me of a Riesling wine, not too far off from the commercial claim of this brew’s similarities to Sauvingnon Blanc. I detected notes of light citrus, dry sweetness, slate/limestone, and a dry tang on the finish. Body is light, oily, and with lively carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, a very unorthodox yet extremely well crafted pale ale.

smith4498 (3283) - Miami, Florida, USA - JUL 3, 2011
Pours cloudy light golden color with white head. Aromas of tropical fruits and grassy hops. Slightly sweet tropical fruit flavors with some grassy hops and moderate bitterness. Quite different than I was expecting, but in a good way. Medium body with average carbonation.

msojka (457) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 1, 2011
Pour is a light golden almost orange like color with a small white head. Nose is of citric and tropical fruits. Taste is very light fruity and refreshing. Fairly light on the tongue.

emacgee (4427) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUL 1, 2011
Pours bright lemon rind yellow with one finger of white head. Tad skunked on the nose, very grassy and spicy with some green notes. Green and mildly astringent with bready notes. Biting palate.
