3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle. Aroma is grass, peach and melon. Flavour is funky grass, lots of peach and apricot into a bitter finish. Certainly not my favourite style, but by far the best NZ example of it. Crisp, fruity and easy to drink. If I’m in the mood for something lager then this is what I’d go for every time.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle into glass. Manky, earthy, grassy nose. Pale yellow beer with thin white head. A few bubbles. Zingy taste and YES, grainy pilsener notes. Interesting take, like a pils with over-ripe fruit and dry earth. Dry finish lingers.

This is ace - great body, a twist on the Czech style with some fruity notes, clean, compact. Just a really well made, flavourful beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Pale malt aroma, bread, light citrus. Clear very plae starw color, with little cirrus cloud filmy head. Malty initial, sweetish jump in mid palate, hops emerges slowly and then hit stronger in finish. Thin-medium body. Not bad. The mild sweet jump in mid palate is interesting.
