Quest: Tui East India Pale Ale


Tui East India Pale Ale pours into the glass with a little fizz, and a small head that disappears quickly. It looks very dark in the glass; certainly not looking like an IPA. A quick perusal of the Tui page on Wikipeadia tells me the company is in trouble for calling it an IPA when it is, in fact a pale lager.

First sip: little carbonation and almost no hop taste, like an inferior tasteless Newcastle Brown. It is most definitely not IPA, or even an East Indian Pale Ale. Tui is slightly fruity reminding me of a dry cider. By the half way mark I was wondering if I wanted to finish the glass. I did, but I'm glad I only bought one bottle and not a six-pack -- I didn't want another one. I notice the bottle is stamped Best Before Aug 10. I can't imagine the beer being any better than it is now.

Same again, sir? No thanks.
