2016-05-20. Crisp orange body small beige head and nice lacing. 3+ Aroma is relatively mild, lightly citrusy hops, grassy hops, lightly toasty malt. Flavour is moderately bitter, some nice fruity hop character, light citrus, lightly astringent finish. Smooth average to light bodied palate, low carbonation. Decent. 7/4/7/3/14 On cask at The Brewery, Christchurch, NZ. beer-yum (1885) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 11, 2014
Restrained aroma followed by a full bodied, malt forward, flavour that makes a nice contrast to the more hop forward takes on the style. kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 7, 2014
The head is medium, the body gold-brown, a bit cloudy. It smells hoppy, bitter, aromatic. The taste is hop-aromatic, bitter, bit dry, intensive malty, fruity, bitter aromatic, ok. 3.6 Cantabrian (1161) - Christchurch NZ, now Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JAN 24, 2014
Ha! The 10th rating. My rating will trigger the average. Great to exercise power in such a passive way. Anyway, this is a lovely copper/amber with a très crémeux head, aroma and flavour full of fruits and butterscotch, nicely balanced with a fruity bitterness, but all very subtle. The big problem is that its Milk Stout sister is more seuctive, so there’s less opportunities for more pints of this nice beer.

Draft at CBD. Hazy variegated golden amber color, thick creamy white head with good retention and solid lacing. Aroma of summer fruit and subtle white pepper. Taste is creamy bread dough, stone fruit, light citrus, black pepper. Complex and characterful. petergaynor (137) - NEW ZEALAND - JUL 12, 2013
Pint pulled from the han pump at cassells. Pours hazy bright copper with a thin but creamy bone white head. On the nose there is faint hopping with some pale malts. Nice thick mouthfeel with some fruity hops, not much bitterness and a nice sweet malty taste. ckelly (4) - - JUN 11, 2013 does not count
A sweet and slightly citrus aroma english ale with a creamy head. Has a nice balanced mouthfeel and lingering bitter finish. I’ll be back to try Cassel’s other offerings lisagirl (264) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - APR 23, 2013
a standard bitter. the bitterness does last quite a while, which is nice, but else it’s a typical session beer. a little muted fruit, smooth, deep maltiness; quite nice i suppose. horotane (18) - NEW ZEALAND - MAR 22, 2013
Like milk, it becomes, so it goes. It’s a staple. It’s the yardstick. It’s where the palate returns to a reference. And bears burden well - everything is contained. A beginning, middle and end. Impressions of malt, relationship with hop and afterthoughts of dry sherry and quince, quenching and sated.
