Brewery: Stone & Wood Brewing Company
Style: International Pale Lager
Brewer Description: (from bottle) Influenced by the surrounding green hills that roll down to meet the Pacific Ocean, Green Coast is brewed with a blend of the finest malts and left unfiltered to create a beer that has a light amber colour with a natural yeast cloud, and a flavour that strikes a fine balance between its subtle hop aroma and full malt palate, finishing soft and clean.

Intro: A 330ml bottle with a best before date of 8th March 2017. Poured into a Moonzen teku glass.
Appearance: A very slightly hazy golden yellow colour with a one finger white head that dissipated fairly quickly while leaving some sparse lacing.
Aroma: Sweet malts and maybe a little musty at times. Not getting any of these supposed ‘subtle hop aroma’.
Taste: Sweet malts with some grassy notes.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Can be refreshing on a hot day, but nothing special.
