2016-05-20. Crisp dark yellow body with a small beige head, light lacing. Aroma is pleasantly fruity, citrus peel and tropical fruit. Flavour is moderately bitter throughout, interesting hop character, muddled but nice tropical fruit notes, some grass, moderate pale malt throughout. Sort of earthy not quite resiny quality lingers in the finish and aftertaste. Average bodied palate, good carbonation. Not bad. 7/3-4/7/3/14-15 On tap at The Brewery, Christchurch, NZ.

A perfume like floral aroma with distinctive citrus notes, hints of tropical fruit and hops. Pours a good looking clear gold color with a lasting white well laced head. A floral hops taste with a dry feel and a bitter hops finish.

Tap at cdb bar, christchurch. Clear golden color, white head. Aroma is fruity, sweet malty notes, hops. Nice fresh fruity and hoppy taste, sweet malty body. GlassBrass440 (321) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 9, 2015
On tap at pier side cafe. Herbal and resinous hop aroma with mild caramel notes. Taste is of caramel malt with a hearty bitter bite. I think the draft lines could use a cleaning, but the beer is still quite good. I prefer this on a hand pull. Too much carbonation on tap. beer-yum (2005) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 28, 2014
This is a superb beer. Not least because it held up well when following a Quad IPA! Alluring aroma and full, balanced flavour makes this my favourite Cassel’s brew (so far).
