Brewmaster’s Comments

Our NZ Pale Ale is very much a Kiwi style Pale Ale which is copper in colour and has the addition of lots of aromatic hops to give a sensational fruity aroma. The flavour is lighter and balanced with some malty notes from the Crystal and Caramalts.

Fermentation takes place at 18°C over 5-6 days and is very strictly controlled with daily checks on temperature, gravity, taste and pH levels to ensure the finest results.

Our NZ Pale Ale is matured for a minimum of two weeks to settle and clear, and is then filtered through a diatomaceous earth filter to ensure clarity and brightness.

Tasting Notes

With the use of 3 NZ aromatic hops, the hops give our NZ Pale Ale a wonderfully fruity, floral aroma with tropical and citrus notes being fairly pronounced.

Packaging

NZ Pale Ale is available in kegs for cafes and bars.
