explosivedog (1504) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 20, 2017
330ml bottle. Pours pale. Aroma is a bit straw dominated. Grapefruit, orange, hay, touch of acidity, touch of sweetness. Reasonably crisp. Fine.

Dredd (969) - 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.

Bottle. Hazy orange with a white head. Juicy aroma with sweet pineapple, honeydew melon, menthol. Light bodied - a bit watery even. Tropical fruit, some pine and spices. Not much in the way of malt; feels a bit empty for 5%. Moderate bitterness. Refreshing.
