3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle. Attractive opaque amber hue, small diminishing off-white creamy head, good lacing. Pleasant mix of aromas; fruity; apricot, peach, citrus/marmalade, hint of lime, soy sauce, smokey, whisky, port royal tobacco, honey. Taste is light sweet, medium heavy bitter, light sour, with a long duration. Medium body, lightly creamy texture, light carbonation, long dry bitter slightly astringent finish. A very nice English Pale Ale, though lacking in memorability.
(330ml bottle) Pours a clear golden body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of florals, nuts, toffee, grain, and subtle citrus. Flavor of caramel, toffee, grass, mango, florals, nuts and citrus with a mildly bitter, somewhat dry finish. May Sir Corporal Stanley Green RIP.

The head is ok, the body amber-brown. It smells sweet, hoppy, fruity, aromatic. The taste is aromatic, fruity, hoppy, bit malty, bit bitter. Good one. skortila (5875) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JAN 25, 2014
Bottled. New Zealand holiday 2011-12. Old notes. Aroma is a bit weak, but has hoppy fruitiness mainly. Clear, copper coloured with an off-white head, The taste has biscuitty malts, hints of grapefruit and some pine. Some carbonation goin’. Okay-ish. 3fourths (9347) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Dog food dry, stale grape nuts, over-dried orange peel... sour, grainy, popcorn and creamed corn flavoring with hints of yogurt. Then you have some plant matter, soil, animal dung, etc. Pure shit! But it’s not as bad as it sounds, it’s actually a struggle to get these notes... it’s a surprisingly dull beer. Medium body, syrupy texture, low carbonation, low bitterness and medium-low sweetness. Factory beer masquerading as craft with a trendy label. Rulymel (294) - SPAIN - NOV 5, 2013
Slightly amber gold color with a white thin head.
In nose, it has an aroma of malt and hops, no extra notes but really good.
Taste we can feel a soft cereal flavor, light body, long finish fruity and herbal produced by classic Zealanders hops.
Classic and rich.

Bronze amber colour with a nice bubbling head. Smooth and malty with the malts keep coming through. Very nice beer. Ingevara (910) - SWEDEN - JAN 23, 2012
Golden reddish. Short head. Mine was too cold; didn’t taste anything, just like a bland uninteresting lager, but when I disappointed left it for half an hour new flavors developed: noticeable maltiness, some sugar and hops, dried fruit and a hint of vanilla. maneliquor (3514) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 20, 2011
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Nice copper orange pour with a small white head. Some decent lacing is left behind. Aroma falls short for a pale. Smells more like a lager with a touch of citrus behind it. Pale biscuit malts and green fruits show in the taste. Not much of a finish. Rather dull mkel07 (5988) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 30, 2011
330ml bottle. Carries a big deep thick head of dirty white foam and an amber bronze body. Passionfruit and rockmelon in the aroma are pleasing on the nose. Good mouthfeel and flavour with mild bitterness and a lingering aftertaste. Not outstanding but a good honest pale ale.
