500 ml bottle poured into a glass mug.

The beer pours a medium amber with two inch foamy head. Smell is big resinous pine and citrus hops with a detectable sweet malt underneath (reminds me of home).

Palate is more subdued, probably because the beer isn't super fresh, with sweet passionfruit coming first, followed by gentle malt sweetness which lasts until a subdued but oily hop bitterness at the end.

Body is a bit thinner than I would like, with low carbonation and an oily finish.

Clear, golden amber colour with a fluffy white head. Nice.

Moderate Kiwi hop aroma with notes of passionfruit and citrus. Nice, soft malt profile.

Moderately-strong bitterness with a good, prominent, earthy, citrussy, spicy hop character. Just enough caramalt is present to balance it all out.

Medium body with moderately high carbonation. Okay.

Overall, I quite like this. It could do with a touch more hop aroma and flavour to counteract the bitterness but it is still good.
