There’s a pile of clichés we won’t deploy here attesting to the fact that you can never take anything in this world for granted. Sure enough, just as Tuatara’s beloved American Pale Ale looked like getting bigger than Texas, our supply of the mighty American hops that defined it started to go wobbly on us. Undeterred, we set to crafting a local solution. Aotearoa Pale Ale takes the spirit of the old APA and reanimates it with a hopping regime that’s as kiwi as a 25 year mortgage. The same-but-different local recipe (Pacific Jade, Cascade, Sauvin and Wai-iti for all you trainspotters) is well within the remit of the original APA, but with a deep, long, new age flavour profile.

Flaska från SB. Bärnstenfärgad med vitt skum. Doft av tall, vingummi och söta bär. Söt, men ngt tunn kropp. Krisbig smak av tallbarr, vingummi, annanas och druvsocker.

Senap (512) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - SEP 12, 2015
En välbalanserad och lättsam apa. Passar väl in i mallen på hur en modern pale ale bör smaka. Bra, men inte bäst.
