Pdubyah (423) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 18, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2014 First review: I don’t think there is a redeeming feature in this beer that I can find. The bready yeasty aroma translates into a bready yeasty wet blanket mouthful. The bitterness is all point and tart. Lacks real body and length. Cruel but for me this missed so many things. I’m sure that my pain is someone’s pleasure though and this has a lot of fans. Second review from a fresh bottle from the importer and I get the hops, and I get the bitterness and balance that the malt brings. I think it’s over-carbnated but it becomes easy drinking and I’d be happy to have another. Seems the bottles with the yellow border and black oval are the ’new ones’ Who knew.
