A hazy, unfiltered take on an Imperial Pale Lager, brewed with an extreme amount of fresh wet Motueka hops. The hops were hand delivered on the day of picking from Kentish Man Hops (NZ smallest hop farm) directly to Blenheim and added at the peak of freshness to our brew already in progress. The result is a luscious hop-fest of a lager full of tropical fruit, lime, and apricot hop flavours. The beer pours light amber with a faint haze. There is a hint of malt sweetness with lots of up front fruity hop notes ending with a clean lingering bitterness on the finish.
"Our exploration of hazy, hoppy brews continues with 4.8% ABV Bay Mist Unfiltered Pale Ale. Bright fruit on the nose with resinous, floral notes under an opaque white head. Drinks so very smooth and fruity - with a delightful, integrated bitterness to a balanced end - it may make you smile"
McLeod's flagship beer and trophy winner for Best International Lager at the 2017 Brewers' Guild of New Zealand Awards, this is a proper Lager matured for a full six weeks before release. Expect a sparkling light-gold colour with ripe melon and stone fruit aromas. Crisp but layered with ‘biscuity’ malt, it finishes dry with balanced bitterness.
McLeod’s have a great reputation here at Manly Liquor. They were awarded Champion Small International Brewery at the Australian International Beer Awards 2019, which just happens to be the worlds largest international beer competition. Bloody good!
Brewery Notes: "Our everyday beer is anything but ‘everyday’. Laden with a blend of NZ hops, this one is ‘all-tropical’ all the time. Star fruit, oranges, limes, and papaya fill the palate along with enough light malt to keep it dry and refreshing. Much like the place where it’s made, there’s a little paradise in every pour."
A nod to the Bard - Robbie Burns himself, A Red, Red Rose is our rendition of this neo-classic style with bright Bing cherry & orange leading to a soft resinous pallet of cracker-like malt & spice with dried fig. Finish is dry & moreish.
