Sitting on the 'taunting pole' in The Grove at the moment looks to be one of those beers that is unmissable. Hawkshead Brewery has always been one of my favourite breweries and seems to be one that can turn it's hand to any style of beer and produce a winner. They can turn out light and dark alike and have even recently brought out a key-keg lager that is excellent (also available at The Grove presently).
The beer taunting us is 'New Zealand Pale Ale'. It promises much, with a strength of 6% and a blend of four different hops, Nelson, Riwaka, Motueka, and Green Bullet. If they get this right, and on past experience there is no reason why they should fail, then this weekend we could be in for a winner. Just cannot wait for it to get onto the bar to sample it.
