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%

joshwilfong (1200) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - SEP 25, 2011
pale golden, nose of citrus hops and an oxidized note. firm bitterness, very extreme for the style. low malt character before citrus hops and an overriding oxidized character. overall it is clearly an aged version, but the high bittering component likely would be too extreme at any point

ttoadee (642) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 2, 2014
Washed out yellow pour, quick white head. Nose is grapefruit and pine resin. Bitter. mid is acidic grapefruit peel (where is the pulp?). finish is strikingly bitter and crisp. Interesting pale.

Sdaniel90 (357) - Mexico City, MEXICO - SEP 1, 2014
Bottle, 500ml. Clear yellow with visible sediment and a crispy offwhite head. Sweet, grainy aroma with hints of citrics, sour apples, straw, green grapes and pine resin. Medium to light bodied. Dry and astringent with medium to flat carbonation. Sweet and moderately bitter. Spicy, but one-dimensional. Finish is almost non-existant. Refreshing but nothing special.

Percy0103 (163) - MEXICO - SEP 1, 2014
Bottle, 500ml. A golden beer with a lot of sediments, a medium to small foamy head that fades away after a couple of minutes and a nice lacing. Aroma is of citrics and wheat. Taste is bitter, especially at the end. It has faint carbonation and some astringency. Aftertaste is strong and slightly alcoholic. It somewhat lacks character and it is not very dense.

Long lasting foam with good lacing. Nice citrusy aroma with a hint of kiwi. Taste starts a bit sweet and finishes very bitter. Well balanced beer!

Bottle, bb 1-2015. Pours pale yellow with a white head. Aroma: spruce, pineapple, citrus, sweat. Taste: lemon, honey, resin, white grapes, slightly floral, grains. Medium bitter, somewhat thin, creamy mouthfeel, dry finish. Refreshing, could use a bit more bite.

Alengrin (1380) - BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2014
Scottish interpretation of an American pale ale with thin, white head and golden blonde colour. Flowery aroma of rhubarb, caramel, honey, sage, berries; malt sweetish taste, some dried fruits, orange touch, fruitier in the middle and finishing in a herbal, flowery, quite long hoppiness.

MoritzF (8464) - Bochum, GERMANY - AUG 19, 2014
(bottle) Slightly hazy, pale golden colour with a medium-sized foamy white head. Hoppy aroma of grapefruit, grass and catpiss, slightly doughy pale malt in the background. Mildly bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Slightly doughy malt character with loads of citric, grapefruity hops, accompanied by some grassy accents towards the mildly bitter finish. A bit perfumed, has something of a (cheaper) Sauvignon Blanc from NZ. 11.VIII.14

Aroma of citrus, light tropical fruit, grass, hops. Flavour is fruity and hoppy, with a medium bitter finish. Very fresh and easily drinkable.
