Well, certainly my first Polynesian beer, this lager pours a medium gold colour with a frothy white head that leaves pronounced lacing on the glass. The nose is fairly muted, with mild hoppiness that is softly grassy and herbal. On the palate there is quite a thick, smooth texture and a nice bitter hop character, with refreshing acidity and bright, crisp flavour. The mid-palate fills out nicely with slightly citrus fruit and the finish is clean. A very nicely made lager, though not distinctive. 5.0% ABV, 33cl, £0.95, Peckhams.
