COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Originally inspired by the humble ANZAC biscuit, Pan Pacific is brewed with golden syrup, suggestively named Golden Naked Oats and a combination of New Zealand Motueka and Australian Galaxy hops. It was originally released as a 20 litre cask at the first Pacific Beer festival with a name acknowledging the biscuit which inspired it. Interesting fact – it’s actually illegal to use the word ANZAC in the name of any product other than ANZAC biscuits (which can’t be called cookies). Who knew? This latest big batch brew has an addition of toasted coconut and a new name acknowledging its pacific ingredients. Pan Pacific is a rich red amber, with generous malt and fruit hop character, and a subtle hint of toasted coconut at the end of the palate. It’s a brew to meet the arrival of Autumn, with nice body and character with just a hint of warmer climes. Come fly with us.

330ml can pours dark amber with large off-white foamy head. Lots of carbonation here. Earthy floral aromas but nothing to suggest the theme of the beer. Flavours of brown sugar and bready malts with a little bitterness. Coconut undertones kick in on the finish. Great concept and enjoyable beer but doesn’t quite hit the mark.

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2017 330ml can. Pours chestnut colour with a thick luscious head that falls away into peaks and valleys. Aroma is quite weak, perhaps a little nutty biscuit type stuff. Flavour is big and delicious. Up top is a little bitter orange, plenty of biscuits and a lot of toasted coconut (especially after it warms a little). This all peels away into a gorgeous sweet syrupy finish. This is a style I would never normally think to pick up, but I’m very glad I did! Excellent.

From a can. The malt really shines through, the tropical fruit aroma is delicious, very mild smokey flavour. Nice stuff.

Another interesting concept for a beer. Trialled the can. Nice colour but little texture. Rich taste, lingers a while. Solid.

330ml Can. Little to no nose on this beer which is rather deceptive considering how large the taste profile is! Lots of malts, biscuit, caramel and a lingering hop palate. It reminds of of the ANZAC biscuits I ate as a child.

Can. Amber with an inch of beige head. Does smell quite like an ANZAC bikkie - toasted oats, dark sugars, raisins - with some mango and orange zest too. Sweet and rich with a little spicy bitterness at the end to lift the sweetness away. And I guess there is some coconut at the end. Along with a metallic touch. Maybe that’s the tin. Pretty good for a novelty beer.

BB 26/12/2015. Poured a coppery amber colour with a two-finger light tan foamy head that retained well and laced OK. Carbonation low to moderate with fine to medium sized bubbles. Aroma subtly of sweetness plus an earthiness. Taste of sweet malt and hops bitterness. Light body. Smooth, crisp with a quite nice bitterness on the finish; maybe a bit metallic at the very end. A nice amber ale but doesn’t remind me of Anzac biscuits.

Muddy Amber. Little head. Low carbonation. Well balanced malt/bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
