COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Spawned by freewheeling, Californian hopheads, American Pale Ale is the red-headed stepchild of the classic IPA. Big and extroverted with plenty of bitterness, a great APA shows off some fruit on the nose and the kind of earthy, herbaceous complexity Pinot Noir buffs drone on about when they corner you at a fundraiser. Anyway, we had a thumb through the Tuatara atlas and discovered that us Kiwis are New World too. So we reckon its time a New Zealand APA pulled on its dockers, flashed its Backberry and generally talked louder than anyone else in the bar. Here it is!

Bottled, 330ml at Beerd, Oxford. Hazy gold with white head. There is a pleasant, light hoppiness to this, hints of orange peel, tangy fresh and pleasantly bitter. Reasonable depth, leafy notes. Decent.

Vignale (3639) - Malm, SWEDEN - SEP 20, 2015
Flaska frn SB som ser ut som en drakhals med en kapsyl i form att ett drakga. Orsakade slagsml bland barnen :-). Brnstensfrgad, klar relativt lgt skum som dock lmnar en hel del rester. Trevlig fruktig doft, tropisk frukt, citrus, tallskott, mango, kolakakor. Smaken r lite jordigare med en rejl smst smak av kaksmulor, kolaremmar, rtig och jordig humle med frukten i bakgrunden. Medelstor beska. Har verlevt resen ngorlunda ven om jag hade nskat att humlen var piggare. Gott
