COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A modern expression of a historic recipe from 1906. Available year round. Hops include Motueka and Rakau. Vintage styled and distinctively balanced with a vivid golden tint. An aroma of crisp fruit greets the nose, rolling into a profound wave of melon and grapefruit. The finish is gracious and bitter sweet.

BeerNinjaUK (496) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2015
Pint at Blue Boar, Aldbourne. To look at, light amber with slight cloud. Shallow white head which dissipates with deep lacing. Aroma lacking with no real strength - slight hint of pineapple. Taste much deeper - good tropical notes although mild in hops and lacking bitterness. Very drinkable and not at all heavy on the palate.
