Last year we got an all-too-brief appearance of Max beer with some New Zealand hops. It looks like the hoppy beer has returned with Max Special Hop 2010! No info as to where the hops came from. There’s an African motif on the label, but that may be a World Cup promo. Let’s hope this is a move into a positive direction.
ADDENDUM: A closer look and taking the time to translate the back of the bottle reveals that the hops do come from South Africa.
I just reviewed this beer. verdict: not great: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lf0gNTsqSWU
