TAsting notes

One of New Zealand’s first new generation pale ales and now a classic, Emerson’s 1812 is in our humble opinion a masterpiece of balance. Pouring a bright amber hue beneath a deep cream coloured head, the aroma hints at caramel offset by a light fruitiness. Medium bodied, the palate first offers a marmaladey combination of ripe citrus and caramelised malts before the resiny hops bring home a lingering dry finish.
