kereru are bringing much into the upper hutt economy and Big Pigeon pilsner is another example of top quality products from these fullas. Chris and Natasha make great beers and i wish them all the best for the future.

330ml bottle. Pours pale. Aroma is a bit straw dominated. Grapefruit, orange, hay, touch of acidity, touch of sweetness. Reasonably crisp. Fine.

Dredd (975) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - JUN 18, 2017
Slight tropical aroma, clean amber pour with a thin white head. Skunky flavour, slight metallic taste and some damp cardboard. Perhaps I picked up a bottle that had been laying around. Not that good.

Crisp and Hoppy with a lovely long finish. Hints of pineapple maybe? tastes really clean.

On tap at Hart's pub in Sydney. Really like this. Grassy on the nose. Quite hoppy for a pilsener. Very refreshing and flavorful. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Greenslopes Cellars 040916. This is my first beer from Kereru Brewing and I don’t love it and I don’t hate it. Quite a musky flavour with a dry finish. Nice looking label on the bottle.
