A new take on a favourite beer that delivers crisp hops and fresh flavours with a full creamy head to top it off.

On tap at Galbraith’s. Pours yellow gold. Biscuit, orange, lemon, some tropical notes. Not bad. beer-yum (1907) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 26, 2016
Restrained floral aroma in a golden amber pour. Laid back hop forward balance with a bigger malt body than you’d expect from the style and/or strength. Nice, but nothing special. Samtzu (608) - Palmerston North, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 14, 2016
Beervana 2016. Medium body which exhibits strong hop flavours with a deep malt base. Very clean and easy to drink. JoshRaburn (721) - - NOV 18, 2015
Hand pulled pint in the LBQ in Wellington (probably the best pub in the city). Not sure if it’s 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. jujumaries (17) - FRANCE - JUL 10, 2014

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 Rangi (671) - NEW ZEALAND - OCT 30, 2013
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. DylansDad (664) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 5, 2013
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, I’m easy". Disclaimer: I’m 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, I’m missing a bit of subtlety. lisagirl (264) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 19, 2013
seems a very well made stock standard pale ale to me, with just the right level of refreshing hop bitterness. it isn’t unique but it’s a refined example of the style.
