The beer highlight of my recent New Zealand trip was finding the microbrews from Wanaka Beerworks. All are terrific. This one pours a clear dark amber. Hoppy nose with an excellent fruity-hopped palate on a solid malt base. Excellent.

330 ml bottle BB 30/08/05. Pale copper colour, slightly malty aroma as well. Light apple fruitiness. Flavour is bready and toasty. A touch of fruitiness and some mild spicy hops. A bit underdone compared to the other two beers I had from this brewery.

a strange combination of porridge, musk lifesavers and mango juice. quite sweet with a fruity finish. weird but not bad

eczematic (1319) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - JAN 6, 2004
strangely thick, yeasty and creamy for a lager. tastes of grainy creamed honey, cold porridge, nut nougat, stewed apricot. bizarre but i didnt mind it that much.

Not as good as their Brewski. This is much more malty and bready. It has not nearly as much hops and is sweeter.

Golden-orange colour, thin white head. Reminds me of a continental lager, such as Becks. Malt nose fairly sweet flavour. Caramel malt flavours. Dryish finish. Overall, a clean, easy to drink beer.
