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%

It poured a light golden color with a nice white head. It had a grassy aroma, and a soapy, grapefruity bitter flavor.

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 ]

Draft at Edmunds Oast. Clear hazy gold pour with a fluffy white head. Aroma of tropical fruit hops, cantalope and melons, citrus and English yeast. Slightly chalky in flavor with New Zealand hoppiness. Not too shabby.

matstrange (67) - Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2014
Pale straw colour with a visible thinness when poured. Has a moderate short lasting head. The hop explosion in the mouth though is special (albeit slightly grassy in flavour) . This is up there with some of the great APAs. Definitely worth a buy!

Countbeer (4548) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - SEP 13, 2014
Bottle: Served in a Duvel glass: Medium sized white head. Almost clear yellow colored beer. Aromas of hops, flowers and hoppy fruits. Flavours of hop fruits, some citrus and grapefruits, some flowers, herbs, some smooth bitters, you know it, it’s there. Very nice and balanced beer, bit thin but even more easier drinker. Aftertaste is a mix of hops, herbs, bitters and some fruits. Low carbo, light watery light creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied and a light watery texture. Nice stuff!
