One of New Zealandís first new generation pale ales and now something of a classic, Emersonís 1812 is all about balance. Pouring a bright amber hue beneath a deep cream coloured head, the aroma hints at caramel and dark toffee balanced with a light citrusy fruitiness. Medium bodied, the palate first offers a marmalade-like combination of ripe citrus and caramelised malts before resiny hops come to the fore and lead into a lingering dry finish.

Another signature beer from Emersons. If their stuff wasnít $10 per bottle here in Perth, I would stock my fridge exclusively with it. As good an IPA as Iíve ever tasted (and there are some pretty piss ones in Canada). A little hazy on the pour, bright golden orange with a terrific lasting head. Lots of fruity hops on the nose, and a refreshing mouthful of flavour that finishes crisp and clean without erasing what youíve just tasted. On a hot Aussie day, give me this or the Pilsner by Emersons and Iíll be in heaven.

When fresh as good as any IPA on the palnet. Temperature is critical!!. Lightly chilled but not below 5 degrees. Just so tasty and the taste remains even an hour later. Gotta get more and more and more

highlandlad (1480) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - JUN 16, 2005
Once spent five days in Dunedin. It was raining when I arrived. It was raining when I left. And if it stopped raining at any point over those five days, I must have been asleep. Damn, itís a wet city. You need a decent beer to raise your spirits in that climate, and fortunately, they have a great brewer in Emersons. I wish their stuff was readily available in Australia because it wipes the floor with 99% of our stuff. This tangy IPA poured a cloudy tangerine colour with a 3cm souffle-like head that took an eternity to sag, leaving some clumpy lace. The aroma is highly hop-driven and zesty, with grapefruit notes, resin and faint toffee-like malt. Itís as smooth and lightly carbonated as the rest of their stuff. Itís more subtle on the tongue than the aroma suggested - light and malty initially, with a restrained tartness in the finish. Marginally under-hopped? Itís lip-smacking tasty but might benefit from a more defined finish. Minor criticism. This is a fine IPA, especially for this part of the world. (500ml bottle, International Beer Shop, Perth)

Ungstrup (36902) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 24, 2005
An unclear orange beer with a nice orange head. The aroma is sweet with notes of coriander - like a Wit bier?!? The flavor is sweet and rather hoppy, but also quite spicy - with coriander standing out. The end is dry. Quite weird - a hoppy belgian ale? or is it because it was 6 months old or so, though still within the best before date.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - MAY 18, 2005
Pours hazy orange colored and a foamy off-white head. Mild apple and spice aroma with sweet candied fruit notes. Rancid malt and hop flavor with plenty of fruit and some spices. Quite weird and not very balanced.

Stew41 (2005) - Phuket, THAILAND - DEC 29, 2004
Cloudy dull orange with some lightening at the rim. Good head retention and lacing. Lifted fruity notes, very pure and has good penetration. Very good in the palate, nice broad fruity notes and a little maltiness is arrested in the back of the palate with medium (at best) level of hops. Not particularly bitter but this is an excellent drop, of course putting most beers from the other side of the ípondí to shame.
