East India Pale Ale was first brewed in England last century for the colonies East of India such as New Zealand and Australia. The beer was unpasteurised and secondary fermentation occured in the bottle during the long journey. Thirsty settlers loved its natural effervescent character and we reckon it still hits the spot today.
Brewers Comment: This fine ale is a thoroughly refreshing beer with a light palate best suited to beaches, barbecues and all beer related occasions.
Serving Suggestions: Serve lightly chilled on its own or with any manner of barbecued meats. At restaurants, or when trying to impress others, try and use a glass. Do not mix with salad.
Cellaring: Yeah right!

Russo (2012) - Hemhofen, - SEP 23, 2012
Amber color with alnost no head. Aroma hard to define it, hints of roasted malt. Flavor like the aroma. It is far away to be an IPA. Watery aftertaste

UjoKlobasa (786) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JAN 19, 2017
Multiple cans. Bland watery brew lacking any tastes. Aroma is heavy metallic. Nothing resembling IPA at all, it is more like cheap pale lager. Avoid.

33cl bottle. Clear amber colour with a small white head. Malts, bread in the Aroma. Average carbonation and light watery body. Taste is more on the sweet side but light. Overall, drinkable in hot summer day if there isnt anything else.

Maits (237) - ESTONIA - AUG 4, 2016
Dark amber clear with no head. Firstly sweet aroma, then comes some hints for bread in aroma. Mild amber lager, a bit sweet bread taste with metallic notes in the end.

ALIBALI (1308) - Kiel, GERMANY - JUN 24, 2016
BEL!!!!! Schmeckt wie leicht suerliches Malzwasser. UNNTIG !!! Maximal ein bisschen geschmackvoller als Wasser und so nur als neutraler Durstlscher geeeignet, wobei hier die 3,50 Euro fr die 0,33l Flasche sicherlich zu viel sind. Getrunken am NEUSEELAND Stand der Kieler Woche 2016.

sdg (162) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 17, 2016
Nicely designed bottle. The beer pours light brown, white but quickly dissipating head. Aroma is mainly malt, citrus and what I think could be green apple or pear, but overall very watery. Taste is slightly sweet; notable is that there is none of the expected bitterness at all. The beer has a light body and a very thin, watery mouthfeel. Caronation is above average.

FrankZappa7 (510) - GERMANY - MAY 8, 2016
08-May-2016-0,33L Flasche. Helles Rotbraun, klar, cremefarbener Schaum. Aroma: Minimal malzig. Antrunk minimal malzig + rstig. Ziemlich nichtssagend. Bewertung 2 im Hinblick auf den genialen Werbespot ( since 1889 temptation has been rising => brewery run only by women/ georgeous women .... )

adasko (2119) - Poznan, POLAND - MAR 20, 2016
Session IPA? Its a joke not session IPA. Its almost the same as tasteless lager from macro brewery. Almost no aroma, except a bit of malts, no taste at all.

lukehamilton (1) - NEW ZEALAND - JAN 22, 2016 does not count
A refreshing aroma with 4% alcohol content makes it perfect refreshment for summer. Bottle, 330 ml with a neck shorter than that of, for instance, Corona. Taste, light sweetness. Light body. Good for happy hours.
