A new take on a favourite beer that delivers crisp hops and fresh flavours with a full creamy head to top it off. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Restrained floral aroma in a golden amber pour. Laid back hop forward balance with a bigger malt body than youd expect from the style and/or strength. Nice, but nothing special.

Beervana 2016. Medium body which exhibits strong hop flavours with a deep malt base. Very clean and easy to drink.

Hand pulled pint in the LBQ in Wellington (probably the best pub in the city). Not sure if its cask conditioned. But kinds tastes like it is. Quite good- similar to some of the modern British cask ales that have been influenced by new world craft beers without losing their character. This one is light but more-ish.

The head is robust, the body light, red-orange and clear. It smells fruity, a bit flowery, bitter. The taste is hoparomatic, fruity, intensive flowery, bit citrus. Ok

Really enjoyable subtle pale ale. Nice slightly full malt base with a subtle flavour of hops. Rated possibly a little higher because of the currie I had this beverage with. Really nice.

A simple, well-made, refreshing beer. Yes, it does have a bit of complexity if you want to go that deep, but to me this beer is just saying, "Quaff me now, Im easy". Disclaimer: Im drinking and reviewing this mild-mannered reporter of a beer immediately after sharing a palate-wrecking Hop Zombie with the missus, so maybe, just maybe, Im missing a bit of subtlety.

seems a very well made stock standard pale ale to me, with just the right level of refreshing hop bitterness. it isnt unique but its a refined example of the style.

Had to let it sit in my chalice before detecting a faint, surprising sweetness. "Pure Canterbury water" is listed on the labels front-matter, and perhaps there is good reason: a slight viscosity or smoothness to the beers texture is apparent, an unusual quality even for a seasoned pallet. More important, everything is well balanced, with a fine, lemony tang following a thick, spicy gulp.
