Very pale golden, light fizzy ringed head. Soapy lemon nose. Neat initial bitterness but fades into a neat sweetness. Firm carbonation. Finishes soft citrus. Fairly middle of the road. Fairly smashable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
From can. No date. Somewhat like an American pale ale. Big hop character in the nose. Catty and herbal. Not what I typically expect from "100% Nelson hops". Flavor carries the aroma through before shifting to a generic malt profile and an assertive bitterness that coats the tongue and sticks around for just enough time that you miss it when it’s gone. Color is gold with a light reddish hue. Pillowy, lasting, white head. I’d swear this is an APA (and a decent one), rather than a blonde ale.

Handpulled at Hashigo Zake. An enjoyable session strength ale that was rushed down when a 6.5 magnitude quake hit the city! Will have another when things calm down for sure.

Straw-coloured beer, initial taste is hops but not massive. Kinda fruity (Im not experienced enough at this to know quite which fruits though!),, kinda sweet, no tartness usually associated with the hoppy beers. Not much taste on the nose - perhaps I needed to let it warm up a bit more after taking it out of the fridge? Well balanced, fun summer ale.

Biscuit on the nose, this beer pours a nice amber gold. Not overly carbonated this beer has good length in the palate.

Bottle. Clear gold with a large white head. Soft aroma of citrus and various fruits - lychees, gooseberries, passionfruit. Sweetish with a refreshing bitter citrus tang along with tropical notes. Nicely-judged Kiwi hops.
