3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I had the misfortune of picking up an aged bottle, I think. The mustiness and the muted hop character aren’t in keeping with what I’d expected from an Epic beer. I’ll have to give this one another shot in the near future.

Very easy going beer, with enough flavour to be enjoyable. Fine as a session beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A - Pours a clear golden-yellow with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some nice lacing.
S - Aroma is a mix of cracker and grainy malts with some grassy and floral hops and a bit of citrus hop.
T - Starts off with a mix of grain and cracker malts with a touch of lemon and citrus hops. Through the middle, some grassy and floral hops come through with a bit of bitterness. The finish is a mix of grainy and cracker malts, grassy hops, and some lager esters.
M - Medium-minus bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry and grainy finish.
D - Very drinkable. Good refreshing lager with nice overall balance and a refreshing mouthfeel.

16.9oz bottle. Clear golden color. Bubbles on the side of the glass. Little bubbly head. Light sweet taste. Little bitter. Good amount of hops to the nice clean lagery bready flavor. Smooth, but not overly carbonated. Great lager, that’s easy to drink and refreshing. Would recommend

Bottle pours a clear pale golden with a small white head. Aroma of yeast, hay, honey, and grassy hops. Taste of yeast, graham cracker maltiness, floral grassy hops ending sweet with a bright bitterness. Pretty nice, refreshing.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bouteilles de 33 cl. Arômes légèrement houblonnés (citron) et de malt pilsner. Robe blonde et limpide, effervescence moyenne et peu de mousse. En bouche, le malt de base apporte des notes très délicatement mielleuses. Le houblon contribue des notes citronnées, mais est moins à l’avant-plan que dans plusieurs autres pilsners néo-zélandaises. Finale assez douce présentant une très fine amertume. Pas mauvais, mais une lager assez grand public.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear dirty straw color with a bright white head and swirls of lace. Light malt taste, quickly overcome by floral hops. Different from the American variety (besides floral vs. pine) because the bitter fades quickly in the finish. Not bad by any means; not a lot either.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(500ml bottle) Poured clear pale amber with nice off-white head. Nice but subtle aroma from the hops - floral, pineapple. Medium body with good carbonation. Hops dominate the flavour from start to finish. There’s very little else left in the flavour except at the start perhaps some lemony notes. However the hop flavours do evolve, ending with a good assertive bitterness that is not very long lasting. Overall a very hop dominated beer and somewhat unbalanced, but still very drinkable.

Bottle. Pours a weak, watered- down yellow with a nose of aspartame and peach with a light oily hops presence. Flavor is orange hops with a touch of earthy malt sweetened by a light peach. Average mouthfeel. Good lawnmower beer, I’m sure.
