2.83/5  rDev -17.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

a: clear orange color with foamy head that settles to good layer, plenty of bubbles rising to the top
s: mix of hops and citrus
t: citrus taste to begin, with a later arrival of hops which provide slight bitter finish
m: medium body, decent carbonation, not-quite-crisp
d: not bad, but wouldn't look for this one again as it just didn't offer anything special

500 mL bottle
A: Pours a gorgeous crystal clear apricot orange with nice thick head. Decent retention aided by high levels of carbonation.
S: Delicate hop aroma accompanied by various notes of citrus - most noticablly nectarine.
T: Nacterine and other less distinguishable citruses appear immediately and are letter accompanied by a nice balance of malts and hops.
M: Smoother and thicker than expected from appearance but atypical for the style. Carbonation only seems to be aparent in the aftertaste.
D: A highly drinkable brew. One of those "when in doubt" beers that would seem to be applicatable to most situations. Could see this getting a little too sweet over multiple glasses however.

Serving type: on-tap

NZ Trip Jan/Feb '04

Golden amber in colour which is a touch cloudy (as is the style).

Has a very citrus nose to begin with that turns fruity, but not in the tropical sense, more in the stone fruit areas of apricots and nectarines. Intresting

Palate is citrus again but clean and crisp and full of thirst quencing goodness. A real treat after a hard days work.
