BEER HAIKU #89 Duncan’s Pale Ale – New Zealand Pale Ale

A new brewer from the Kapiti Coast, Duncan’s this week made their inaugural appearance as Hashigo Zake Cult Beer Bar’s Tuesday new release. This is another good example of a talented home brewer making the transition to commercial production.

Duncan’s Pale Ale – New Zealand Pale Ale (5.5% ABV)

Classic grapefruit nose,

At citrus harvest, first blush

Smelt it at distance

Food match: mushroom risotto, venison sausage

It’s the kind of beer you drink when: There’s a game of charades going on at the other end of the table.
