5.8% NZ Pale Ale. Our hop forward pale ale takes its name from the Field Way surf break. Field Way combines 4 different fruity New Zealand grown hop varieties to create complex aromas and flavours of sweet lemon, lime, and mandarin marmalade with a hint of the herb garden. To balance all this zesty hop character we use one of our favourite base malts, the Pale Ale Malt from the Malteurope Maltings at Marton in the Rangitikei and a dash of toffee tinged caramalt malt from the Bairds Maltings in Scotland. The result is a hoppy fruity yet well balanced pale ale that makes a perfect foil to a chilli oil laced pizza at Long Beach.
Sweet lemon, lime, mandarin, herbal notes, and melon fruit aromas lead into a palate that balances zesty hops with toffee and biscuity malt flavours and a long dry finish.
