Can picked up somewhere in Western Australia. Lager? Ale? Hard to tell. Bland, with some weak malt flavor. Not much else to speak of. This seemed to be marketed as a choice for the WA population that didn't want a cereal lager.

From Bottle! Pours clear deep amber, small frothy white to off-white head, light lacing. Aroma malty, caramel, bit toasted. Taste sweet and bitter, malty, caramel herbal notes, bit watery.

This is not a bitter IPA but a great drinking beer. This was absolutely my favorite NZ beer.

Not a very good beer. Much too sweet and lagery( bottle says its a pale ale). Actually this beer is brewed with a lager yeast and I hear it has browb sugar colouring to make it look like an ale

Not much real flavour. It really is a pretty poor beer. A lot of New Zealand beer is like this unfortunately. Better than Budweiser and all of those American lighter coloured adjunct beers that are made with corn and rice. This beer is one for to get if your tight on money and you have a BBQ to attend

745ml bottle poured into pint glass 12/3/14 from notes

A clear copper with a short lived finger of foam fed by many little streams of bubbles leaving two rings of lace

S faint citrus, lots of bready malt and caramel, doesn't smell like an IPA

T brown sugar, cotton candy, lacking hops, some leafy, herbal hops but not really a whole lot going on, some orange creamsicle as it warms

M light bodied but the bubbles give it some life, lots of malt on the finish

O drinkable but very boring and tame for an "IPA" quenched my thirst but that was about it

More of an IPA the Alaxander Keiths but that's not saying much, one and done
