330ml bottle consumed in Christchurch NZ.
Pours an attractive red-amber color with a decent cone-colored head. Excellent clarity.
Aroma: an enticing smell of sweet varamel malts and some medium roast grains. The hops, which come out clearly upon tasting, are largely hidden in the aroma.
Flavor: A finely crafted mix of a sweet malty ale with a zesty touch of spicy rye and enough NZ hops to lend a mildly bitter herbal hop presence.
O: complex and flavorful but easy drinking. Superb for style and highly recommended. Goes well with spicy Thai food.

Six pack from Henry's in Queenstown. From notes.
A - Poured bright and copper with a one finger tan head. Good carbonation coming up to leave good lace rings and a film of retention.
S - Strong maltiness. Some fruity hop and malt blending together. Nice balance. Not too strong but inviting. A good sweetness is there.
T - Spicy rye is there to start but not too strong. Nice hop and malt balance again. Rye is there but not too strong again. After a while and some warming the rye comes out a lot more and becomes a bit much.
M - Decent carbonation, medium body, decent bitterness.
O/D - A pretty decent red ale, but the rye takes over in a big way after a while. Starts out OK, but getting through a six pack was a bit of a chore.
