NZ hoppy fruit bomb IPA.

Guava and Mango it's LARPING as fruit juice. Looked and tasted more or less as expected. 6.2% had better eg that Good George Nectar of the Gods.

These fruity, hazy IPAs and APAs are mostly interchangeable the brand doesn't seem to matter.

7/10 slight bitter aftertaste it's an IPA.

Gotta admit: I've never seen the appeal of fruity ales. I know they're popular and some folks love the things, but I've regretted the dozen or so I've tasted.

I like APAs they're a bit more subtle on the fruit taste except the hazy ones or hazy infused with whatever. I'm drinking these because the price was right would buy any at full price but they are about 1/3rd retail.

Speaking of which I was planning on savingg this for last but I need some Suger. ABV? It has rubbed off. 1.8 standard drinks per can.

Another fruity pale ale. Bit darker than my typical Eurolagers it poured with a generous head.

Sort of hoppy and slightly sweet ale. Nice change from the IPA but still roughly in my preferred APA/PA ballpark. Had better but nicer that the last one 7.5/10. Not a lot to say colourful can I suppose.

Prefer my good George and Emersons takes on the same beers though.


Beer of the last week or two.

Generic macro beer would rate over these fruity things. Sweet malted/caramel taste. Half the price as well 6 of these around $13 usd.

And for the fruity ones the local Emersons.

And in third place Panhead supercharger.

Panhead and Emersons very similar. Well done imported Dutch beer. Dutch beer also wins the drink on a hot day and drink 6-12 at a party award.

At full price I would just buy these beers over my last 3. At mates rates the gold 86 and Joyrider are in contention.

Thanks, Zardnaar! You've given me some new brews to chase down and try. I'll at least try to find the Gold 86 and Joyrider.
