Emerson's Haast & Furious India Pale Lager (330ml Can)
They might look cute, but Haast Tokeka are feisty wee things - and they need to be. With around 400 birds left, they're our rarest kiwi. Orokonui Ecosantuary's Kiwi Creche is a predator free space where chicks can grow to their 'stoat-proof' weight. We've sponsored the creche since 2017, and are now showing our support with this IPL. So, enjoy the citrus flavours, peach and passionfruit aromas, and warm fuzzies, too
The colour of pale lager ranges from light bronze to nearly transparent and the alcohol anywhere from 4-6%. Adjunct usage may be quite high, though in some cases the beer is all-malt. Carbonation is typically forced, though not always. One thing that doesnt vary is that neither the malt nor the hops make much of an impression on the palate. These beers are brewed for minimum character, though faint traces of hop or malt may show through. More likely though is that adjuncts like corn will show through, or youll find notes of higher alcohols (fuel notes) due to the use of high-gravity brewing. The body will be thin and watery, and the finish is typically non-existent.
