On tap @ La Cerveteca, Barcelona. Pours a cloudy golden colour with a white head. Aroma is grass, floral, herbs and citrus. Texture is oily soft carbonation and taste is citrus, papaya, with a bitter aftertaste. Very nice brew! I want moreee!

Backlog rating. Keg at Euston Tap, London. Pours a clear golden colour with a big white head. Long lasting foam and lot of carbonation streming off the bottom of the glass. Aroma is hop forward on the fruity side, with pineapple and citrus. Taste is similarly fruity but not overly bitter. Grapefruit and peaches with a touch of acidic note in the finish. Medium mouthfeel and well carbonated. Nice and refreshing.

Keg at Hokyrood 9a. Pours golden slightly hazy with smallish white head. Resin and hops on the nose with grapefruit. Could be slightly sweeter early notes compared to the ’standard’ version? Soft carbonation but really balanced. I’d happily take either this NZ version or standard Axe, both are ace.

[keg at BrewDog Edinburgh] Pours a hazy golden colour, with a decent white head. Was expecting lots of vinous notes on the nose, but instead it’s fairly tropical, alongside some resin. On the taste, grassy, resinous, with some sweeter caramel notes. Aftertaste is more of the resinous pine. Hugely drinkable [17102013]

Draft. A hazy golden beer with a yellowish head. The aroma has notes of spicy hops, malt, and straw. The flavor is spicy hops, malt, and hay, leading to a bitter finish.

jamestulloch (4327) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 7, 2013
Keg at The Hanging Bat. Hazy pale golden body with no head. Aroma of lychee, mango, pineapple and lemon. The flavour is not as complex as the original, but is wonderfully fruity and juicy. Sharp orange and lemon with mango in there too. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Soft carbonation. Decent, but not as good as the original Axe Edge.
