COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
’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.
Brewer’s 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!

This is my favourite mass produced beer from my home country, New Zealand, which is why I’m giving it full marks though most of people are a little right in saying that it is not the finest beer in the world. Great for the sun, not too hoppy, rather amber in colour, smells pretty damn good, tastes the same and the marketing is the best I’ve ever seen, ever!

330ml bottle Amber pour with OK head. Aroma is malty, grainy, sulfur and a strong banana/solvent note. Not much in the way of bitterness to speak of. Also very solventy. Ho-hum.

massingasetta (759) - München, GERMANY - SEP 11, 2017
This is a very mild East India Pale Ale, yet it has evidents zests of the style. This light coloured beer is very drinkable and refreshing with just a touch of hoppiness and bitterness. A all in all good brew.

light body, a relatively cheap NZ made beer. Nothing to rave about, but tastes fine after a spot of hard work. A bit of a price pusher, and a long standing Kiwi icon.

john44 (3202) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2017
Bottle. Dark Amber in colour. Looks like a pale version of Coca-Cola. Malty; lightly roasted malts, caramel. Unable to detect any hops at all. Sweet Malty throughout. Definitely NOT an IPA; didn’t taste much like beer. Bland. Nondescript. (2009)

CurlyJoe (287) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 20, 2017
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2017 Clear dark, dark orange/brown with thin, foamy white head. Smells of sweet biscuit, caramel malt. Taste is quite sweet too, not as sweet as smell though. Some hops there as well at the end. Very clean and refreshing. Extremely drinkable. East India Pale Ale might be a little misleading, but otherwise a solid brew.

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.

2.2
ruigo (3080) - PORTUGAL - AUG 9, 2016
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 isn’t anything else.

2.3
Maits (556) - 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.
