Didn’t work for me. Aroma was not strong or distinct and although refreshing, was too bitter without any variation or complexity

On tap @ Pomeroy. New Zealand holiday 2011-12. Old notes. The aroma has maltiness, some caramel. Clear, amber coloured beer with a thin, off-white head. The taste is light - moderate bitter, bit malty, some resinous hops there.

The head is ok, the body red. It smells hoparomatic, sweet, fruity, bit bitter. The taste is hoparomatic, fruity, bit flowery-bitter, bit fruity-bitter, fresh and nice.

Pours a dark brick red and has good clarity. Malt and hints of caramel prevalent and is quite soft and creamy on the palate. Little bit of bitterness on the back palate.

Bottle. Clear amber color, medium white head. Aroma of lightly toasted caramel. Taste is similar.

2.4
Ingevara (910) - SWEDEN - AUG 5, 2013
Small head. Fruity smell. Too sweet, not enough hops. Aroma that balances on the edge of yukkie. I expected more.

beerledgend (1196) - Waterloo, Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 5, 2013
Hazy amber colour with thick fluffy white head. Spritzy citrus/berry flavour. Short hop bitterness with creamy finish.

lisagirl (264) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 9, 2013
a nice standard amber, rather dry hops and plenty of malt. nothing special, but still quite nice.

Nice amber, a style I’m really starting to dig. Carbonation at the finish was indeed prickly, but this had the effect of stopping the great flavours ingratiating themselves across the whole palate.

It’s nicely bitter too, just about the right amount that offsets the sweet malt. It’s good. This would be a fine session beer. Not spectacular but solid, you could go a lot worse
