TedE (985) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 12, 2016
Handle on tap, Grove Tavern Blenheim. Pale amber, no head. A few bubbles. Slight malt nose. Watery, zingy, sweet sherbet and malt with a vegetal finish. Dire, nearly undrinkable.

Absolutnie nie ma sie co rozpisywac o tym wyrobie piwo-podobnym. Zero zapachu, w smaku jak woda zrodlana, jasna, jaskrawa barwa. Z tego tylko w miare srednia piana, ale i tak opadajaca blyskawicznie. Opakowanie fatalne, jasne szklo, kapsel swing-top, klejona nieciekawa etykieta. W zastepstwie np latem zamiast wody mineralnej to tak, ale jak nie trzeba jeszcze kierowac auta

Skarecrow (226) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 6, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2016 On tap at a function. Typical estery banana aroma (that you get with DB brewed beers) with grainy cereal note. Straw color - not much head and OK lacing. Mild bitterness with a grassy finish but that’s about it. One glass was all I could stomach. As I finished my glass I thought "Life’s too short to drink bad beer like this swill".

This on is just silly. You can hardly feel it’s a beer. It has absolutely no aroma and no taste at all. The good thing is that it’s not bad, not yucky.

This is the same in all the forms tap, bottle, can. It’s golden and has a reasonable head. No dominant flavour, or thing that stands out, but it is refreshing and does the job.

anstei (1178) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JAN 8, 2015
330ml bottle in Christchurch, no glass served. Golden yellow color, almost no head in the bottle. Nose reminds me of Heineken, taste too. No finish whatsoever, you swallow and it’s gone.

Muggus69 (2115) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - FEB 25, 2014
OLD NOTES JAN 4, 2004 Came in a energy drink style bottle. A weak grassy, if not skunky aroma. Standard straw lager appearance. Watery mouthful. Not too much in it. Quite a dry after taste.

The head is unrobust, the body blond. It smells and tastes very watery, very mild. Shit!

Bland as all hell. Virtually no head. Watery and tasteless, this beer goes down very easy so it’s probably only good if you are a raging alcoholic. If you like tasty beer, my advice is to avoid.
