Typical of a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc wine, this wonderful South Pacific Ale has a great grassy nose with kiwi fruits in abundance. The wonderful fruity mouth gives way to a great bitter finish. 5.2%

DuffMan (10549) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 26, 2011
Bottle. Hazy bright yellow, bubbly white head that retains deep into the glass. Aroma is quite intense; lots of lime, gooseberry, guava. Lip-smacking tart/bitter fruit hops load the palate: lime zest, guava, feijoa (there’s a fruit I haven’t thought about in a while!). So good!

jackl (8271) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 18, 2011
Pale amber color, nice off-white head that sticks around. The nose is nicely grassy and breezy. Pineapple and citrus notes on display. The taste is lightly sweet with a somewhat bitter finish. Mouthfeel is light and simple. Good beer for spring/summer.

Cask at redlight. Gold pour with a tiny white head. Scent is hoppy pine. Juicy hop taste. Good

niquillis (2752) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2011
On cask at jdw, stone. Pours golden with a thin head. Apparently this tastes of kiwi but it was more like a grapefruit fruit beer. Nice but due to the sweetness was a bit sickly. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

strongpieman (1651) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - DEC 10, 2011
Draft. Pale yellow, clear, almost no head. Light fruitiness, very mild aroma - almost nothing (may have been served too cold). Not one I’ll go back to.

3.6
Tmoney99 (14755) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 7, 2011
Bottle. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate grass hop and tropical fruit aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. I shared this with a freind.

tastybeer (1853) - Indiana, USA - DEC 7, 2011
Draft. Pours yellow gold with a decent white head, some retention/lace. Aroma of melon/mango nelson hops, slightly grassy, caramel, bread. Taste is soapy hops, melon, grass, biscuit. Palate is crisp, soft, light body, bitter finish. Excellent pale ale.

Savvy1982 (1706) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 5, 2011
Bottle at home, out of my Maudite glass. Pours cloudy yellow/gold, 1-finger white head, gives way slowly with fine lacing. Nose is dusty malt, with loads of kiwifruit, mango, grapefruit, and loads of grassy notes. Flavours of lightly soapy bitterness, LOADS of grass, and some nice bitter melon and stonefruit notes. Creamy, understated, and deceptively complex. My ratings seem very high of late, am I drinking better beer, or just getting soft as time goes on. think it’s the former, as this is bloody marvelous!

Finn (7836) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 5, 2011
Fra kran på Schouskjelleren, Oslo 18 Okt 11. Gylden. Litt uklar. Pent luftig skum som varer. Skummet fester seg til glasset. Flott, litt tungfruktig aroma. Smaken er rikt fruktig. Litt tung også den. Aprikos & rabarbra. Svakt tørr ettersmak.
