330ml bottle. Small creamy off-white mostly lasting good lacing head, opulent hazy copper amber gold hue. Robust toasted roasted malt, molasses, light hoppy - fruity including raspberry, floral, leather, kelp/rocky shore, smoke aromas are very pleasant. Moderate sweet and bitter and faint sour taste. Light to medium body, creamy oily syrupy texture, soft carbonation, smooth chalky dry finish. Interesting, nice enough but not too memorable.
330ml bottle. Pours ruby red. Aroma is all toffee and biscuits, though the flavour has some sweet fruitiness too. Little cherry, some orange, lots of peach. Really quite nice. Hoponmate (309) - NEW ZEALAND - JAN 3, 2017

2016-05-09. Copper amber body, moderate head. Aroma of green hops over malt that has a softly earthy quality to it. Flavour is a bit of an odd combination at first, lightly sweet malt base, moderately fruity and lightly bitter hop character that I can’t quite place. Very smooth average bodied palate, soft carbonation. 3+ Nice but it does not suit my mood today. 6/3/6/3-4/13 On tap at Hallertau Brewbar, Auckland, NZ.
