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%

on tap at Kraftwork - Bright golden color, very polished with a thick, foamy white head. Aromas of grapefruit skin really kick it into the "American Pale Ale" genre. Crisp, sharp bubbles (a bit coarse on the palate) dominate the mouthfeel. Flavors of grapefruit are predominant, but not overly aggressive like some IPAs. Good balance with a clean, crisp and pleasant finish. This may be the best English brewed Pale Ale that Iíve had on my American IPA loving palate.

Pint at the rake borough market. Good lacing. Easy drinking and inoffensive, in a good way. Some fruity notes. Could do 4 or 5 no problem but Iíve got to be back at work in an hour. A dilemma.

Lo queas destaca en esta cerveza es el DMS. La probamos cuatro personas y no mos gusto a ninguno. Poca espuma. Poca carbonatacion.

BBD: 10-2015.
In short: stale pale ale.
Pours little hazy pale bright gold, with little white head. Short head retention, poor lacing. Herbal, stale, little skunky and dms nose. Light body, average to low carbonation, little crispy texture. Taste is little bitter, herbal, some fruity. Ends dry. A bit dissapointing.

40cl @ tap. Luppoli americani per questa birra inglese. Aroma leggero, kiwi e altre spezie. Gradazione alcolica leggera, beverina che Ť un piacere.

Tap. Small silky white head, thick lace. Clear pale golden. Strong fruity aroma with mango. Dry, oily and crispy palate. Hoppy and bitter. Bit strange.

Aromat mało intensywny, cytrusowy. Barwa słomkowa, zamglone. Piana średnia, niska. W smaku wyraźne tropiki i białe owoce. Wodniste ze średnią goryczką.

It is nice sometime to have a soft beer, and this one is great on that purpose. Soft aroma and taste of hop, without giving the impression of a "watery" beer.

MarkoNm (1109) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - MAR 16, 2015
Pours a completely clear and very pale yellow color, topped with a decent and solid white head which leaves nice lacing. Aroma is pleasantly fruity, some tropical fruits which I canít really identify, but very nice. Also notes of hops are well present. Starts with some fruity feel, followed by medium hoppy bitterness and some pine notes, with some fruity notes again in the finish. Very nice, very drinkable. Just great.

2.8.2014. Very pale yellow, clear. Aroma of spruce, tropical elements such as pineapple. Aroma is still quite delicate. Medium bodied followed by medium strong taste of citrus, pine and grassy bitter finish. Quite refreshing, easy to drink.
