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%

Golden color with a white head. The nose is full of citrus, lime, pine and resin, very nice. The grassy flavor is strong, but ok. The finish is not as good as the rest, the oaky/piny/bitter isn’t my thang at all..

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

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 ]
