’East India Pale Ale’ was first brewed in England last century for the colonies East of India such as New Zealand and Australia. The beer was unpasteurised and secondary fermentation occured in the bottle during the long journey. Thirsty settlers loved its natural effervescent character and we reckon it still hits the spot today.
Brewer’s Comment: This fine ale is a thoroughly refreshing beer with a light palate best suited to beaches, barbecues and all beer related occasions.
Serving Suggestions: Serve lightly chilled on its own or with any manner of barbecued meats. At restaurants, or when trying to impress others, try and use a glass. Do not mix with salad.
Cellaring: Yeah right!

Looks like a iPa but that’s about it. Tastes like dishwater. It’s more like a cross between Coors lite and Budweiser, very watery with poor lacing. The packaging fooled me into thinking its craft brewing but its mainstream muck.. Don’t bother..

Nicely designed bottle. The beer pours light brown, white but quickly dissipating head. Aroma is mainly malt, citrus and what I think could be green apple or pear, but overall very watery. Taste is slightly sweet; notable is that there is none of the expected bitterness at all. The beer has a light body and a very thin, watery mouthfeel. Caronation is above average.

08-May-2016-0,33L Flasche. Helles Rotbraun, klar, cremefarbener Schaum. Aroma: Minimal malzig. Antrunk minimal malzig + röstig. Ziemlich nichtssagend. Bewertung 2 im Hinblick auf den genialen Werbespot ( since 1889 temptation has been rising => brewery run only by women/ georgeous women .... )

Session IPA? It’s a joke not session IPA. It’s almost the same as tasteless lager from macro brewery. Almost no aroma, except a bit of malts, no taste at all.

A refreshing aroma with 4% alcohol content makes it perfect refreshment for summer. Bottle, 330 ml with a neck shorter than that of, for instance, Corona. Taste, light sweetness. Light body. Good for happy hours.

Clear red-brown color with foam layer. The smell is much like wet grains with no really recognizable hopping. The most present thing in the taste is the carbonation, even though it is not massively overdone. It has a sweetness with a malty character and it lacks a style corresponding hopping. Calm aftertaste. I would rather characterize it as an amber lager or a red ale.

330ml Dose. Kastanienfarbebes Bier. Malziges Aroma, wenig Hopfen. Süffiger flacher Geschmack. Kein Pale Ale, der Name täuscht!

Butelka. Generalnie jedno ze słabszych piw spożytych na Nowej Zelandii. Brak pełnego wysycenia, słaba goryczka a i reszta też do kitu. Polecam tylko na upały i jako ciekawostkę.

Draft. What the actual f***? This is not in any world a freaking IPA. Amber color. The aroma is MALT. NOTHING BUT MALT. This is like a bad altbier or some shit. Flavor of MALT. Is there A hop in this, let alone many hops to necessitate a hop rack? Palate is meh. Listen guys, you can’t brew an American adjunct lager and call it an imperial stout. You’re similarly off here. Learn to brew.

This slightly foamy IPA has virtually no aroma. Only a little bit of caramel may be suggested. When I taste I’m are in doubt about whether it is an IPA, for it is only a little caramel malt with a little watery hoppy bitterness in the final. I have tasted discount lagers with more hop bitterness than this IPA. If you choose to print the text ’India Pale Ale’ on a label, then you should also fill in hops so the beer has an IBU more than 2.
