COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A German style golden beer with a firm, dry malt palate. The use of NZ grown Saaz hops for both flavour and aroma gives this beer a deep floral, citrus character. An excellent brew to serve with spicy food, or as a perfect session beer.

KeefOz (881) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - FEB 20, 2014
Tasted 7/2/2014. Draught at Waiheke Island Brewery, NZ. Poured a clear pale amber colour with a one- to two-finger white foamy head that retained OK and laced OK. Carbonation very low with small bubbles. Aroma of sweet moderately strong hops (not as aromatic as other pale ales Iíve tasted) with citrus/grapefruit and possibly passionfruit. Taste of quite sweet caramel malt fading to a moderately strong but nice bitterness. Light body. Smooth, clean, crisp with a long slightly bitter finish. Quite OK.

Clear pale blonde with slight bitter flavour, clean brewing profile, low flavour, motueka herbal nose, light carbonation biscuit malt with a touch of custard in finish. Inoffensive.

floydian1 (918) - FNQ, Australia, - APR 5, 2012
Bottle on Waiheke Island. This is actually a Kolsch-style beer with subtle pear and grapefruit aromas on top of a grainy malt base. Light hop bitterness with a medium-light body. A pleasant uncomplicated beer for a session.

Very pale, straw colour with small head. Aroma is spicy, with some fruitiness and a character I couldnt quite pick. Light refreshing on the palate, clean and quite good. A mate brought this back for a trip to NZ and I found this a good end of the day drink.

Bottle. Golden with a small white head. Sweet malt, citrus and floral notes. Smooth mouthfeel and good bitterness. Not bad.

reviled (13) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 19, 2009
Tasted at the brewer which was unfortunately suffering from a warm ferment. Happy to say that the take away bottle I got was tasting excellent! Pours a crystal clear golden colour with a thin head. Nice floral slightly fruity hop aroma.. Very clean taste with a bready malt flavour, crisp and quite well balanced. Goes down very easily.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 21, 2008
Bottle, pours a light amber with a thin bubbly head. A floral hop aroma with some grassy and citrus touches. On the palate, the caramal malt is quickly followed by the stronger citrus hop character. An off point would be some tartness in the finish. Doesnít quite bring back good memories of the Baroona from a few years ago, but reasonably drinkable.

bozoNZ (719) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 13, 2007
UPDATED: APR 23, 2008 2l rigger from the brewery. Bright straw gold, thin whispy white head. A waft of orange & cut grass on the nose. Lovely palate. I do love this beer. Woody & dry with hints of marmalade, a fantastic malt / hop balance. Could drink it all night. Retasted 04/08 330ml bottle - not a shadow of itís former self. missing body and character. Light colour, biscuity and nutty but nothing else. 4-2-4-2-9

Hazy pale golden colour with a nice spicy/grassy Saaz hop nose. Flavour is quite hoppy with minimal sweet caramel malts. Grassy and spicy flavour with a touch of lingering bitterness. Nice brew.
