Delicate bitter sweet ale showcasing great NZ hops character.

There HAD to be a concoction by one of my top favourite breweries that I finally did not like. And this is the one. This Janszoon pale ale is just too grassy, too herbal and too citric for my particular preferences. Gutted to give it a low score, but hey, there HAD to be one...

Another golden ale. As promising as the last? Certainly lighter than the Monkey Wizard Savvy Blonde but does it have as much character? A sparkling goldie with excellent lace. The aromas of this ale are of herbaceous leaves like sage, grass, lemongrass, buttercups and a bit of cereal. This is one well suited to aromatic Asian foods. The flavours are much the same with plenty of carbonation that bring up a stomach full of burp (I like). Lemony and tart, this beer sits cleanly on the palate with puckering tartness. Enjoyable enough but perhaps a little delicate for a rufty tufty swashbuckling bastard like me. Arrr.
