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%

What struck me with this beer was the grassy notes in aroma and flavor. There was a fruitiness to it, but I wouldn’t have known it was kiwi without reading the description.

Przylus (318) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAR 24, 2015
Aromat mało intensywny, cytrusowy. Barwa słomkowa, zamglone. Piana średnia, niska. W smaku wyraźne tropiki i białe owoce. Wodniste ze średnią goryczką.

Barril @Taxman. Amplios sabores de malta. Suave pero con muchos matices. Cuerpo muy fino y fácil de beber. Buen regusto maltoso.

DylansDad (363) - NEW ZEALAND - MAR 13, 2015
A soft beer. Light but very doughy malt dominates the aroma, then dank pine grape maybe pineapple. Flavours are the same: not a punch in the face, more a polite refresher (for a hop head).

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.

From tap, hazy pale yellow with low head. Aroma is very fruity with notes of tropical fruit, citrus, some cereal. Taste is bitter with a very light malt body leading to a long ang lingering bitter finish. Taste is wonderfully fresh and fruity, light and refreshing.

MarkoNm (1022) - 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 can’t 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.

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.

Fruity hop aroma. Clear golden colour. Very hoppy brew with a light bitterness. Nelson Sauvin hop.

mt_hall (142) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2015
Bottled. Clear with a light gold colour and a medium sized, foamy, off-white head that was soon gone. Subtle aromas of grass and yellow fruit. Sweet fruit in the mouth at the start (pineapple?), then a dry, earthy finish. Clean and well-balanced. Good, but would have liked a little more body.

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.
