Originally brewed by Lion breweries showcase brewery in Wellington, Sassy Red describes itself as a "Hoppy Best Bitter". It is a nice orangey brown colour but its head is exceedingly shortlived for which I had to deduct a fair amount of points for. It has a very strong 'spicy' smell from the hops, possibly one of the strongest smelling beers i've had. In taste it is strongly bitter, almost too much for my taste which is suprising. Overall I did not like this beer as much as some of Mac's other offerings which I find a bit odd considering that it must have been popular at the brewpub for Lion (who currently own the rights to marketting Macs beers) to produce it on a large scale.
