COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
One of New Zealand’s first new generation pale ales and now something of a classic, Emerson’s 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.

Luvystypotables (2029) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - DEC 18, 2015
An aromatic hop aroma with note of resin, floral and caramel. Pours a clear light caramel color with a short lasting white well laced head. A very sessionable taste of caramel, resin and floral with a lighter bodied slightly dry feel and an aromatic hop finish.

On tap at the local. This was one of my favorite beers - now adulterated by the bmc, I was wondering how long it would take for this to happen! Weak thin body, made with mash efficiency in mind not taste. A hint of hops, no real bitterness or fruity NZ hop notes. Its shame what this beer has become!

Light golden color with negligible head. Pleasant hoppiness, but tastes diluted. All right with a meal, but I wouldn’t seek it out.

3.4
tombutlin (316) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - APR 11, 2015
UPDATED: APR 5, 2017 Well balanced and enjoyable, but a bit lightweight for the price. Citrus and spruce hop aroma that has a good followthrough to the taste and pleasant aftertaste. Nothing wrong with this, but I felt slightly underwhelmed. Go for the Emerson’s Bird Dog instead. Tried again and there’s more of a tropical note - pineapple in particular

3.2
Bule (2228) - California, USA - FEB 19, 2015
On tap at Doolan Brothers. Pours a yellow amber color with a bit of head. Mild hops and a slight bit of funk.
