2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

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.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
The head is unrobust, the body blond. It smells and tastes very watery, very mild. Shit!

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
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.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Dull straw, no head, looks terrible. Smells like celery and gasoline. Maltesque palate, some plastic stuff...would ve at home in the Molson pantheon.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Aroma has hints of banana just peeking over the typical macro lager aromas of despair, which did pique my interest for a nano-second. Then down the hatch we go and the first few gulps are inoffensive and would probably be refreshing on a hot day, but by the time I get halfway into the glass, the taste of vegetable cooking oil, and oversweet metallic finish start drowning out any goodness this beer might once have had.
