About The Beer
Country: New Zealand
Style: American Pale Ale
Format: 500ml Bottle
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 Renaissance 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. At Renaissance they have given this style a truly New Zealand flavour by using Cascade and Willamette hops that are grown over the hill in Nelson.
This beer displays honeyed characters and the subtle hop flavours lead to a slightly sweet finish on the palate. As with all Renaissance beers, they believe that Discovery's flavours can be enjoyed with food as well as on their own, with the beer matching well with the hot spiced dishes of Mexican (well it was pioneered in California), South East Asian (Thai, Malay, Vietnamese, Indonesian) or Indian.
