We’ll bet you can remember your first glass of Sauvignon Blanc -all those racy, up-front fruit flavours and that bracing punch of acidity. Allow us to introduce the beer world’s equivalent from the home of the world’s best Sauvignon Blanc.
Pioneered in the American state of California, American Pale Ale- or APA for short, was designed to showcase the unique resiny fruitiness of American hops. Here at Renaissance we have given this style a truly New Zealand flavour by using Cascade and Willamette hops that are grown over the hill by our neighbours in Nelson.This beer displays honeyed characters and the subtle hop flavours lead to slightly sweet finish on the palate. As with all our beers,we believe that Discovery’s flavours can be enjoyed with food as well as on their own, we recommend that this beer matches well with the hot spiced dishes of the following cuisines:
- Mexican (well it was pioneered in California)
- South East Asian (Thai, Malay, Vietnamese, Indonesian)
