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%

bottle from Waitrose Sidmouth. Rather pale yellow colour, white head. Hoppy aroma, hop-accented flavours. Quite similar to their Jaipur IPA, but not as hoppy. Very nice.

500ml bottle from Waitrose. Very pale and bubbly gold with a diminishing frothy white head - yup, really looks more like a pils or a pale lager (3-). What initially smelled like skunk juice quickly resolved itself into very intriguing sour rhubarb aroma - the more I sniff it, the more I like it ... I get pretty much nothing but that in the nose, maybe a bit of fresh wheat. The taste ... oh my, that’s nice! - massively grassy coupled with the pungent and acidic green fruit (kiwi? sure, why not - it’s pretty tart) ... some alcohol, and some vague grain underneath - quite different. Average body, solid carbonation, a lot of low-level acidity from the initial sip through the somewhat tingly finish, has almost a dry cider-like mouthfeel. I thought I would hate it - man, I really like this.

(500ml Bottle) I’d say the most ’pale ale’ ive wittnessed ..A Pilsener complexion here... nose is tart kiwi fruit like hops , honey, bready malts.. it drinks with a plucky character fruity and zesty shit all day..limes, grapefruit and piney notes. I had another of these New ’Zuland ’ style pales the other day , Everards Wakktu -which like this here i’ll say is captivating & obviously refreshing .

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2013 pours a hazy straw yellow with a large bubbled foamy head that disappeared fairly quickly.. slightly too bitter in the mouth for my liking, but nevertheless a good fruity taste and a decent hoopy aroma.

Light gold colour with no head. Has a strong smell of alcohol but not much aroma of anything else.

Gethinbeer (2452) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUL 27, 2011
Extremely clear golden colour with a frothy white head and clinging lace. Spicy fruit hop and very appealing aroma. Smooth texture, lovely fruit hop flavour to this beer.

On tap at Local option. Aroma: Biscuit malts, lemony and soapy hops. Appearance: Hazy yellow with white foam, decent lacing. Taste is light and fruity, nice citrusy hops presence. Palate: Light bodied, soft carbonation. Overal: A very sessionnable ale!

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 18, 2011
Pint at the White Horse in Parsons Green (London). An accentuation of the hops, with a lot of grassiness. Would have liked a bit more malt backbone.

Woow! It’s a fantastic American Pale Ale. On bottle @Domus Birrae, it is very easy to drink, golden colour and medium carbonation. It is also a refreshing beer. Grapefruit aroma, white head. Caramel taste in the finish. So good!
