Nose
Nutty dark malt with suggestions of plain chocolate.
Palate
Quite tart. Malty sweetness, as you'd expect in a mild, is there but it's overshadowed at first by the tartness. Good nutty dark malt flavours soon emerge, ensuring that there's plenty of taste for the ABV.
Finish
Dry and nutty with roasted grain emerging more strongly to make this a bitter finish for a mild.
Comment
A mild that delivers on taste even if it seems a touch too bitter for the style. The first of four beers from an environmentally-conscious New Zealand brewery.
