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%

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 18, 2010
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a clear golden with a rich off-white head. Exotic fruity hop aroma. Medium body, sweet fruits and a light citric touch - there’s a vague cardboard touch. Discreetly bitter finish. No more an APA than your typical British Golden Ale. 180110

omhper (23426) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 6, 2010
Bottled at The Globe, Central, HongKong. Almost clear golden, brief head. Grassy gooseberry aroma. Dry and light bodied. Crisp and fresh, richly hoppy and almost woody like a really dry chardonnay. Growing late bitterness. An unusually distinctive bottled English ale with a lot of character, yet retaining full drinkabaility. A class act!

Low carbonation. Fruity beer - intense hoppy dry finish.Perhaps a trace of Kiwi but it’s not as obvious as the description says.
