Tap. Shakespeares, Sheffield. Hazy amber. Dense, lasting, white head. Quite vinous this. Some apple. Some granary bread. Fruity hops come through after. Taste is a little sharp. Fairly bitter. Finish is more of the same. Not convinced this is right.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted on tap at Fine Wine Delivery Co. Golden brown colour, poured with very little head. Lovely aromas of pine grass hops hits first with definite hints of hay-like malts bursting through. The malt follows through onto the palate and slight pine residue. An enjoyable smooth, long finish persists after a lively mouthful, all despite the lack of much head. Wonderfully easy drinking. A beer very much like cut grass, and perfect for drinking after finishing mowing the lawns on a hot, summer afternoon. One of the first craft beers I ever tried and really encouraged my pursuits in beer. For me, Tuatara’s stand out beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured fresh on tap from Fine Wine Delivery Co. Pours a rich golden colour with a slight orange tinge, and smells of freshly mown grass and subtle citrus fruits. Very easy drinking, with hints of citrus and toffee, leaving a slight bitter taste in the mouth. A good beer to have for BBQ’s or crack one open after mowing the lawns. Good job Tuatara

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle. Pours clear amber with a medium sized head. Refreshing nose, clearly NZ hops. Despite not being an IPA, the malt backbone isn’t pale at all and works perfectly with the well crafted aromatic hops body. Lasting finish. Well done, Tuatara!
