Default Spot the mistake

OK, saw this today and had to share...
Spot the mistake in the following picture



Anyone else got an example of beer marketing gone wrong?

I found it!

"Flavour" is spelled without a u.

In all seriousness... 35 IBU? o_O... GTFO!

Obviously IBU should be higher. There is quite a bit wrong with this.

Hahaha, never thought that you would think they can't spell either! Please note this is from an English speaking country

Rich maltiness or hop flavour, which one is it?

Did you try it?

35 IBU is even below the English IPA range... Assuming it's an English IPA to begin with. Which would make the spelling 100% correct on there, so no error.

No, haven't tried it. Saw it on a NZ beer blog and needed to share. It is from NZ megaswill brewery DB. These guys own the trademark for Radler in NZ, that's right they own a trademark for a beer style!
