light copper, fast off white head. subtle malty aroma with earthy woddy notes. the flavour is smooth maltiness, bread maybe a hint of stonefruit and oak. kinda weak but very drinkable. much along the lines of imported english pales but have made it to NZ in MUCH better shape.

Thanks to ghawener. Drank it with rcasta and ghawener in my house. Pours amber color. Medium bodied, malty and sweet, oaky and spicey. bitbucket (2165) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - MAY 20, 2009
Bomber. Pours clear amber with a lacy off-white head. Fresh, spicy hop aroma with a hint of pine, wood and caramel. Light body, watery texture with moderate carbonation. Lightly sweet taste, softly oaky fig and toffee. An almost dusty and not particularly bitter finish. Seems like it would go nicely with a variety of food. sdk (33) - Island Bay, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 20, 2009
330ml bottle. Poured a lovly reddish brown, very clear. Nose is quite light, just a hint of hops. Nice taste of malt and hops. Not too over powering, good finish. blklab2007 (2120) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 14, 2009
bottle poured an amber in color with a thin off white head. aroma has caramel malt, fruit, and dull bitter hops. thin mouth feel with average carbonation. flavor has plenty of sweetness, caramel malt, and dull hops. there is a dough thing that does not quite fit in.

Bottle: From San Diego to El Salvador. Drank with ramenen and rcasta during Ale Tasting session. Full oak wood aroma and taste, earthy and malty with a nice presence of hops. Well balanced, a great beer. Alasdair (76) - NEW ZEALAND - APR 30, 2009
Attractive aroma of spice and caramel, and very drinkable - gentle bitterness and dry-ish finish with just a smidgen of lingering sweetness, but dominated by munich malt flavours - a bit too bready, rather than toasty. greig (253) - Hamilton, NEW ZEALAND - APR 23, 2009
Copper with creamy head. Aroma is minimal, but has some toasted bread notes. Toasted bread also on the palate, with some spicy notes and an underlying hint of vanilla. Lingering sweetish finish. Pleasant. Very sessionable. blankboy (7689) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 20, 2009
Bottle (22oz) shared with HogTownHarry, garthicus & biegaman -- courtesy of HogTownHarry. Pours a hazy orange-amber with lots of tiny sediment and a small diminishing white head -- almost looks like a Barley Wine. Aroma’s fruity and malty along with brown sugar, some oak and light hops. Slightly watery, semi-sweet flavour of fruit, caramel malt and light earthy hops. Average bodied. This is underrated, I quite liked it.
