330 ml bottle
Aroma: yeast and alcohol;
Appearance: Pale gold with a less than sparkling transparency, Big, ice cream sundae head with thick lacing;
Taste: slightly sweet, a hint of hoppy bitterness but not much more than a hint;
Palate: lively carbonation, light to medium bodied, lightly sticky texture, longish, slightly astringent finish;
Overall: Better than Tui but that ain’t much competition.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2009 Pours hazy golden with a small bubbly head which went away rather quickly. A little bit of zesty, floral hops in the aroma. Nice crisp taste, a little lemon and malt with a medium bitterness rounding it off nicely. The small flavour that is there is well balanced. Considering what you pay for it, not bad Maurice...

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(Bottle 33 cl) Slightly hazy, pale golden with a small, white head. Lightly sweet malt aroma. Medium body with a fairly sweet malt base, a little flowery hop accents and a short, dry finish. A straight, OK lager - perhaps a little on the sweet side. 010208

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Moderate hop aroma with some faint citrus notes. Nice palate generally. Reasonably well crafted balance between malt & hop bitterness. Overall, better than any mainstream offering.
