Beer review — Moa and Daleside

Moa Noir Very Rare Beer 375ml $5.90
Moa Noir is brewed in Blenheim, Marlborough, the heart of New Zealand’s sauvignon blanc country. It’s a strong, dark ale featuring flavours reminiscent of chocolate and roasted coffee beans. The palate, however, has a refreshing lightness to it and it finishes dry and bitter.

Daleside Pride of England Beer 500ml $8.20
From Harrogate, North Yorkshire, Pride of England is a mid-alcohol (four per cent), medium bodied pale golden ale, built for warm weather refreshment. It provides an attractive balance of fruitiness, smooth malt and refreshing, lingering hops bitterness, without any single element dominating the mix.
