Wigram Smokey Porter
Well done Wigram. An interesting flavour. Not too smokey, and with just the right amount of chocolate and coffee coming through. Probably not 4 or 5 bottles in series, but early evening before dinner this was ideal.

Aroma is dominated by moist brown bread with grass grapefruit and pine lurking underneath. Taste is.same but adds a hint of some sweet fruit (maybe pineapple) and a hint of tobacco and brass.

Classic Dunkel. Rich, roasty, well balanced with a hint of ripe fruit,. Classic and wouldn’t be out of place in Germany.

Wigram Captain Cook Spruce Beer
Malty aroma in a brown pour. Pretty much what you’d expect from a brew using unconventional ingredients - only better. Full bodied flavour is a little too sweet for my taste - but I’d be happy to have it if it was the only thing going.

Wigram Captain Cook Spruce Beer
What a strange one. The color is that of an amber ale but more cloudy. Plenty of gingery herbal flavors. Unfortunately I think the tea tree is just a little too over the top and gives it a quite medicinal taste. Unique but for a one time thing.

Wigram Captain Cook Spruce Beer
500ml bottle BB 10/9/2016 Malt aroma but not much else. Poured a hazy light brown with decent head. Good bitterness that gives way to a smoky burnt Manuka finish. Certainly interesting.

Nice Imperial Stout, enjoyed ever mouthful. Coffee, Chocolate and rich ripe plum. All the flavours delicately poised to deliver very nicely to the taste buds. Brewed local and enjoyed locally. Good Job.

Wigram Czar Imperial Russian Stout
Pwoah a lot going on here for a very reasonable 8.5%. Creamy, dense head - very trappist like. Good retention. Pitch Dark. A bit light on the nose, but big on the toasty, dark chocolate with a hint of vanilla. Doesn’t try to do too much and succeeds in making an almost session able style impy.

Wigram Bavarian Pilsner
Restrained grassy aroma in a light gold pour. Pleasant hop forward balance to start but has little body after that and the finish isn’t as crisp and clean as I’d like. Not the best local (NZ) take on the style.

Wigram Czar Imperial Russian Stout
Pitch black color. Light brown head. Dark chocolate, licorice, molasses and dark fruit in the nose. Great depth. Mouth lacks acidity, but is pungent with hops and deep rich malt character, molasses, cotton candy, tons and tons of dark fruit, sherry, cotton candy and truffles. Seriously outstanding palate, but lacks a lot of roasted character. Seriously seems like barrel aged, there is so much going on here. This beer is ripe for barrel aging. Lingering dark chocolate, truffles, dark fruit and cherries in the finish. Insane complexity.

Pours a clear, deep, dark red with brown, long lasting head. Aromas of caramel, burnt toast, and an earthy mustyness. Rich caramel and bready flavours with a roasty, not quite coffee-like finish. Full bodied.

Wigram Propeller Lager
Draft at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a hazy straw colour with a frothy white head and some broken lace. The aroma is yeast, light zesty citrus. The flavour is moderate bitter with a citrus, resin hop bitter palate and a lingering bitter finish. Medium bodied with average carbonation. I’m quite surprised at the relatively low ratings. This tap version certainly deserves a higher score. It’s not your ordinary lager.

Draft at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a clear dark amber with.a broken frothy off white head and some broken lace. The aroma is, yeast, ripe citrus. The flavour is moderate sweet and a hint of yeasty sourness with a dry, big fruit wood resin hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation and a light bubbly mouthfeel. I wasn’t so impressed initially but it grew on me a little.

Pours a near clear gold with medium white head out of a green bottle (why?!). No light struck character as I believe this to have come straight from the brewery. Light earthy aroma with some minerals and spicy hops. Bready and yeasty flavour. Some floral hops come in behind. Highly carbonated and medium bodied. The mouthfeel is thick and chewy.

Earthy floral aroma and dark copper colour are enticing - and not let down by the taste. A decidedly different one from the standard Pale Ale - but one that is equally enjoyable. Another great brew from the folks at Wigram.

A pretty beer, cola coloured with a tan head that is persistent and firm, really strong chocolate aroma dominates though. Bitter wash over the palate that ends towards sweetness, but you can pic the hops and malt in this. It’s better, by a long way, than I thought it would be,

Wigram C-130 Strong Ale
This "Clydesdale of the Glass" is burnished copper with a rocky white head, excellent clarity and some good sparkle. Unlike the C-130, which I have flown in countless times, it is a good looking critter. The aroma is driven by its maltiness: stewed apricot, glazed fruit pastry and gentle caramels. The aroma may be a little charmer, but the flavour is very forward, reminding you that there are hops here as well as delicious, balanced malts. There is a little bit of resinous redwood on top of those malt characters earlier described and a tangy tangerine bitterness that carries the flavour on and on. I really, really wish there ws more of this.

Golden yellow with a covering of white head. Gentle aromas of black pepper, golden grain, locquot and poached pears with flavours similar to boot. There’s a nice twinge of bitterness and some tangy lemon and mandarin to finish. Quaffable stuff.

Astro Kiwi Korona Beer
I wish I took a photo before ripping the lid off, but such was my thirst. This is what the beer targets - slaking the thirst without offending, or possibly even bypassing the taste buds altogether. Appears very much in the style of a Mexican Cerveza of prominence with mild grainy aromas and flavours. Excellent clarity and carbonation with a fairly persistent white head that lasted well down the glass as the body disappeared down my gullet. Supposed to be light on flavour, I supposed it would be if I had tried it at the recommended 2-4 degrees centigrade. At just below room temperature it had a mildly sweet flavour and popcorn-like tastes. Will do what it says on the tine, this one.

An excellent brew that is a local (antipodean) benchmark. Probably something I’ll be re-rating (on the upside) in the future.

Dark chocolate aroma on opening, great look pour with a lovely head, but neither of them made it past a few moments, There is a burst of alcohol that underlies this, and that pushes it to the sour side of balanced against the sweetness. But it is lovely with hints of fruits, toasted malts, and is thoroughly nice drop. cheers.
