3.7/5 rDev +5.1%
Its a pale ale that is brewed to taste like a lager- (I know its crazy but it works)
Appearance- Pale Amber with whispy head caused by the hops. Average lacing and moderate carbonation.
Smell- Floral and slightly herbal hops (bottle says N.Z. Hallertau to be exact) sweet malt backbone
Taste- A typical pale ale with a sweet malt opposed to the restrained hops.
Mouthfeel- Smooth (almost slick) Texture with a clean finish. The hops bitterness is sidelined and does not linger long in your mouth. Very much like a lager.
Drinkability- A moderate carbonation and a unique lager take is very interesting, well worth the flagon on the North Island or the bottle on the South Island.

This is the first time i have ever tried a beer from this brewery so here goes and the ABV is 5.0%,it pours a very pale see thru amber with sparkling carbonation that leaves a whispy one finger head with little lacing,the aroma is very weak for my liking with a feint sweet caramel aroma to it,it has an average mouthfeel with a clean crisp taste of hops,malts,yeast and water but nothing really stands out in this beer to make itself mentionable it really does taste like a blend of these ingredients and not much else but in saying that it is very easy to knock back just wouldnt be hunting it down anytime soon.
