Beachstone

NZ PILSNER (4.8%)

Beachstone is a serious NZ hopped Pilsner – tropical fruit and citrus aromas and upfront flavour, followed by a herbal grassiness.

Tasting Notes
Beachstone is plied with punchy NZ hops: Pacific Jade,Pacifica, Riwaka, Motueka, Nelson Sauvin, and a solid and juicy malt base – obvious when you smell and taste the beer. The bitterness is for grown ups, and might make regular “green bottled” lager drinkers cry a little, and cower in the corner

Tasting Notes:
Duskrider has a ruby-red hue and throws a bouncy aroma of pine and orange peel. The smooth and creamy body has notes of caramel and even a touch or sherbet before a moderately bitter finish.

Tasting Notes:

True to its Pacific genre, Kingtide weaves a balance between the tropical fruit of the NZ hops and the citrus-pine of the US hops. At 7 per cent, its sweet, mellow, with a broad pillowy mouthfeel. It delivers a multi-layered experience of floral, fruity and charmingly rugged bitterness.
