Bottle from Archive Beer Boutique March 2014. Quirky labels and good beer. Dark amber with a tidy head. There is a hidden sweetness in this beer but you have to work to find it.

33cl bottle. Orangish golden colour with a small white head. Fruity aroma. Average to heavy carbonation and medium body. Taste quite bitter, but a bit masked by the exaggerated carbonation. Overall, could be an excellent beer but did I mentioned the carbonation problem?

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
4.8% ABV. "Maori" Pale Ale.
All you need to do is close your eyes and your head fills with visions of vines pregnant and heavy with fruit. That’s the whole idea after all. You get all this courtesy of the Nelson Savin hop which also lends so much brightness to Buxton’s Axe Edge.
The first mouthful is full of bubbly bright carbonation, just bordering on silly, but not quite. I’m not sure the Munich malt was the right decision, but I’ll be the last to question a brewmaster and all the good work that brewmasters do and all the joy they bring into the world. It was a little heavy, a little salty and gave a very promising nose some very weird malty, wheaty finishing notes on the palate.
Ok, but not going on my favorites list. Hugs and kisses to the brewmaster though for having enough integrity to go big.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at Barely Legal Tasting Room .
Pours yellow, with an orange glow, and good white head .
Smell is typical nelson, perfumy , floral .
Taste is stonefruit , one of these typical sides of Nelson Sauvin .
Carbonation is way to high .
Sadly enough , i’m a bit dissapointed after having 2 really good beers by them . This is certainly not a bad beer, but nothing really special, and I just do not like overcarbonation at all .

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - poured two glasses, one was clear golden and one had a slight haze so presumably there was sediment in the bottle. Both featured a large bubbly white head which gradually faded to a ring. Aroma of wheat, grass, pear, orange and yeasty notes. Taste is wheat, malt, grass and earth with a hint of lime and some smoke. Medium and very dry body with a prickly carbonation.
