Nik - from “Naughty Boy” video shoot. First single off “Pink Pills”. 💊💊The song was written at Aries Inlet and was formed out of some riffs that Nik had and two SEPARATE lyric and melody ideas that Matt and Beki wrote. The song went on to get major airplay on JJJ and was also used for a just jeans commercial in the late 90s. 📹
Balter XPA took out the #1 spot in the GABS Hottest 100, so I had to put it to the test.
It's a nice pale golden colour with a light head. I got a subtle floral aroma from it. Taste wise, I'd say it owes the number one vote to the extremely refined nature of it. It's got plenty of flavour without getting heavy. It's not too hoppy or too in your face. There's not a massive character to it- it's like it went to prep school, refined and pleasant company but taught not to get too deep into things. Sometimes that's exactly what you want in a beer- especially if you're knocking back a few. It's definitely a great drop and well worth a try- best enjoyed as a refresher on a summer day.
