bozoNZ (772) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 27, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2008 Pint - Clear amber colour, nice malt balance but sadly missing the ígreen hopsí as promised. Clean and interesting but short of the much promised hop character 5-4-5-3-12-2.9 Rerated 2008 version. More grunt, way better than last year. Bready/ yeasty notes with a fruity dolop. Nice balance and decent character. Could easily do a few of these.

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2008 2008 vintage, finally a decent beer from the ínewí Macís! great passionfruit oily hop aroma, solid palate and a refreshing balanced hoppy malty flavour, i was so impressed i had two, this has not happened since the buy out!
