Just like you, but different
I got sent some beer, so this is a hat-top to the brewer. Lining up in Harrington’s new can range is the ‘Traveller’ NZ Pale Ale canned for Aussie demand and kiwi exploration. It’s a brew to celebrate the wave of great Kiwi hop flavours matched to local malts.
This a 330ml Can of 4.4% ABV beer, the 330ml would be 132 calories, it’s 1.1 standard drink units of beer.

The team wanted to chuck a can or three in the backpack then take a hike (or bike) out the back of nowhere to sit down and crack open a good honest kiwi beer.
So, what could possibly go wrong?
That’s a very aromatic beer when you pop the top, all hoppy and green.
Looks lovely in the glass, except no head was forthcoming But it’s a bright bronze brown and looks nicely carbonated
In the middle though there is a gap of sorts, or more to say a lack of lingering flavour on the tongue.
This is a pretty flavoursome beer though, very of it’s style, hoppy and sharp.
Remembering the this is lower ABV than usual domestic beers I still think it could do with a stronger presence in the mouth in terms of flavour, the other bits, thought, are really nice.
Overall then a decent Sunday afternoon beer for drinking and having a quiet time of it, tasty, easy to drink and I’m lucky I have two 🙂
The pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 7 of its things from the thing. It has all the bones of a good beer, aroma, looks, and has some bitterness, it needs a lift in the middle and it’d be something really nice.
The double dip review
The Mowgli’s [sic] are an American alternative rock band from Los Angeles County, California.
American Pale Ales are light in color, ranging from golden to a light copper color. The style of this beer is defined by the American hops used. American hops typically have high bitterness and is a perfect beer for big fare like grilled burgers or combination pizzas, as well as lighter fare like sushi and green salads.
