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%

thirstyrabbit (1136) - Tallinn, - DEC 29, 2012
Bottle. Light golden body with a medium head. Initially hoppy aroma starts later revealing some strange notes of cheese. Interesting but not desirable in a pale ale. Dry hoppy taste with low sweetness and medium bitter finish. I wouldnít call it very "fruity" - thereís more of a white wine dryness dominating in the palate. Itís good if you can look past the cheese aromas.

Great aroma, and the hops really do give it nice delicate tropical fruit flavours - almost tastes like a punch at the start. The body is pretty full for a light bottled APA.

bottle, thanks mowbeer, seemed like a good bottle to walk around bamberg with. fresh and zesty aroma - pine and grapefruit nectar; fair old whack of bitterness, hints of fruit tella; very drinkable

jsmerig (1278) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 15, 2014
Pours a hazy orange yellow with a thin off white head. Aroma of citrus and pepper. Taste is sweet with notes of apricot And orange. Just enough bitterness to round out the sweetness. Finish is dry and crisp. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

eduardovl (929) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
500ml bottle served in a pint glass. Best before 14.08.2014. Brewed with Nelson Sauvin NZ hops. A: Pours a crystal clear pale yellow color forming a huge, solid, creamy, thin bubbled, fizzy white head. Good retention and lots of soapy lacings formed and left in the glass S: Excellent bouquet of hops in the nose. Very herby and piny hops. Notes of pale sweet malts. A bit earthy yeasts. A bit fruity too with notes of tropical fruits released by the hops T: Slightly sweet upfront. Sweet pale malts. Classic British Maris Otter crispy malts mixed with the very tropical fruity profile of Nelson Sauvin. A winner combination. Well, in overall, a dry and crispy beer. Good balanced hops bitterness M: Light yo medium body. Smooth. Good carbonation and a Maris Otter mixed witb herby snd grassy hops aftertaste O: Excellent drinkability. Great British Ale with a strong American profile [ BA Review @ 10/25/2013 ]
