On-tap at Brother Burger and the Marvellous Brew during Good Beer Week 2013.

Pours a pleasant light yellow colour, with some hazing that makes it look icy. Light bodied, with a bubble-pocked, and decently solid white head. Lacing forms in solid sheets, and the carbonation is very fine, especially when tilted. It looks very good.

NZ hops on the nose: slight bite of metallic, some passionfruit, underpinned by a white bread character. There's something pleasingly vegetative and green as well. It's a little light overall, but not bad at all.

Light peppery characters on the front of the palate, with green mango and other slightly sharp fruit characters. The fruit drops out on the middle, leaving it quite light—heading towards the back, there's very little body left, leaving it crisp with some lingering bitterness.

Feel is a bit light overall, despite the depth on the front. It's crisp enough, which suits the style, but more body would help the hops.

Overall, it's a pretty decent and pretty drinkable beer. I like the Kiwi hops: without the balance from the body, they're a little bit heavy, but overall it works out rather nicely.
