COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask & Cold Filtered Bottle; Regular.
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%

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 26, 2011
Pale golden pour floating a white fluffy head. The aroma is bright and ctrusy (lemons and oranges). The flavors are lightly roasted pale malts, caramel and toffee, with some hints of cut grass and some interestingly tart tropical fruits. The PNW hopping has some bright and refreshing citrusy zest. Quite refreshing and tasty beer, if uncomplicated. A very fine lawnmower reward.

500ml bottle in a shaker. Pours light orangeish/golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma of floral/grassy hops with light fruits and some light malts. Flavor about the same, white some light fruits and hops on the finish. Average texture. A decent pale ale.

EdKing (2028) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2011
Pours nice golden colour. Aroma is grassy and slightly burnt nose. Some tropical flavours in there. Taste is passion fruit first, some other tropical fruit flavours with a backbone of English malt. It’s like a cross between an English pale ale and with flavours from an American pale ale. the English style means it’s smooth, fruity and grassy and not exactly bursting with character. the American angle gives it the tropical fruit flavours. Easy to drink and subtle balance of flavours but not blowing me away.

GTAEgeek (1343) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 18, 2011
From the beer engine at the Brick Store Pub. Pours a pale gold color with a small, bubbly, white head. The aroma is wheat, light citrus, and pine sap. The flavor is weakly bitter. The palate is light to medium, flat, watery and slightly astringent. Overall, a completely underwhelming beer.

16 oz cask pour from the brick store, pours a golden color with a creamy white head. Aromas oftropical fruits, floral and hops. Creamy mouthfeel with fruit, and a dry finish

dmac (4342) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - APR 7, 2011
Bottle from EZ shared by Jimmy at the UFC Fight Night. Poured an ugly hazy gold with a foamy bubbly white head. Interesting dank aroma that is both citrusy and earthy. Thin bodied with soft carbonation. Flavor is similar to the aroma but a bit softer with earth being more dominant then citrus. Interesting.

Pouring at Get Real NY. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Clean citrus, smooth and malty. Nice earth and malt. Smooth and gentle but with a powerful bitterness.

JaBier (5094) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - APR 4, 2011
On cask at the Winking Lizard 3rd Annual Real Ale Fest 3/26/11. Pours clear gold with a thin white head. Malty nose with grassy hops and a lot of tropical fruit (getting papaya and passionfruit). Malty flavor with a bunch of tropical fruit before a bitter, grassy finish.

mcberko (7830) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 3, 2011
500mL bottle, split with Matts_Property pours pale golden. Aroma of floral hops, grain and biscuity malt. Flavour of the same, with a lingering floral hops finish. Cask version of this is quite superior, though this rating is for the bottle.

Matts_Property (830) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 3, 2011
500 ml bottle split with mcberko. Pours a golden yellow with foamy head. Pungent aroma of hops. Quite bitter on the palate. Had since on tap and was much better than from the bottle.
