McLeod's Paradise Pale Ale
What to expect:
Bursting with fruity NZ hops
McLeod’s based in Waipu’s iconic Pizza Barn are regulars in the Top 30 and this year it’s their flagship pale ale that salutes. This is something of a cult beer in New Zealand, having been voted “beer of the year” by the Society of Beer Advocates (SOBA) in 2017 and is always in the conversation if you’re talking about New Zealand’s best pale ale. Bursting with New Zealand hops that deliver a gorgeous, lush sweetness of papaya and passionfruit undercut by lime juice and orange zest. There’s a little earthy diesel note threaded through to bring some complexity to the mix.

This is a gorgeous beer with lots of hoppy notes that like to marry with spice, but don't want to overwhelmed. Beef nachos with lots of cheese, sour cream and guacamole.
