Beer review — Barons

Barons Lager 330ml 6-pack $15
This dark golden lager uses Czech Saaz and New Zealand hops and Australian and German malts. It starts with an inviting burst of hops aroma, backed by sweet malt. The creamy textured palate, too, shows real malt depth, nicely balanced with hops flavour and refreshing bitterness.

Barons Pale Ale 330ml 6-pack $15
This is a pleasant, balanced, fruity drop but it has neither the turbo-hopped character of American Pale Ale styles nor the harmonious, bitter, more-ish subtlety of English styles like Bass.  But it does have delicate fruity notes and appealing aromas and flavours derived from Pacific Hallertau and Nelson Sauvin hops.
