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%

1/2 liter bottle - finally fot around to reviewing this one after sipping away at a supply I had cached all summer. Nice hazed gold color with a 3 finger frothy cap - good retention. Modest carbonation. Wonderful aroma floral, citrus, exotic fruits, cereal, some grassiness. Medium bodied, good dose of malts in the front balanced by a pleasant grape skin astringence which turns more resonous and citric in the bittering finish. This is an excellent pale ale with all the wonderful qualities of the nelson sauvin hop. I will definately buy more when it is available.

Poured a generous amount of foamy off-white. Has a pale golden appearance. Very good lacing. Aromas are very hoppy, strong citrus and fruity aroma, orangey. The flavours are abundant as well, with the hops very much present. Some more citrus type flavours, mango, orange peel, sweet malts. Very nice and smooth mouthfeel. A perfectly subdued hoppy presence makes this one a brew to have again.

0.5l bottle. Clear yellow colour with nice white head. Aroma is citrusy, bit of tangerine, taste grassy and citrusy as well, bit of malt. Interesting but nothing special. Slightly bitter, very refreshing easy to drink "summer" beer but was expecting more.
