COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Imagine a world without flavour. It’d be almost as bad as a world without beer. Well you’re in luck. This lager is literally bursting with hop-fueled taste. It’s been created by people inspired and obsessed with keeping the flame alive. Enjoy our handiwork.

MJGG (951) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 23, 2012
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.

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.

Pyobon (934) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 11, 2012
(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.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JAN 14, 2012
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.

wlajwl (3896) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - DEC 29, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2012 The aroma is bread and hops. The flavor is bready with a good hoppiness to it that leads into a dry and lingeringly bitter finish. Very good all around.

KapitiCritique (345) - Xincheng, Henan Province, CHINA - DEC 5, 2011
Pours polished pale yellow, mediocre head - I usually pour straight down to get what is there but this was not all that excited to be there - and mediocre lacing; the hype - bursting with hop-fueled taste? These guys brew Mayhem and Armageddon. Who do they think they are kidding? OK, not wild. Tart-ish and sem-dry; nose has hints of fruit and earth; medium body and slightly oily Mayhem and Armageddon are hard acts to follow - especially in the IIPA starved desolation of the Long-ish White Cloud. But this is a decent Pale Lager. I’d call it a good session beer - there are trains home and lots of taxis

MelbBrewersJD (39) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 13, 2011
Pours clean and clear. Nice head...doesn’t linger long though. Nice noble hop aroma. Taste is very malty and brady but the bitterness lingers just a touch...hangs around on the pallete. A nice beer but I prefer my lagers to demand me to take another swig. This does not do that. A tasty beer though.

davidm (1935) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - SEP 23, 2011
Bottle 330ml at the Courthouse. Pretty good for a pale lager. Aromas of wet leaves, with hints of citrus. Taste starts sweet, with bitterness taking over for a long finish. Palate is oily, and medium bodied. Yellow, with a thin head.

Not a great beer by any stretch but very good for a lager, and perhaps the best of the sty;e I’ve ever had. Not hoppy but the presence is felt. Very good balance throughout and the mild sweet malt edge is nice.

Another long distance for a beer to arrive at my mouth. Nice lager but not much better than a Yuengling. Pours a clear yellow with a mild bread and malt aroma. The flavor has the malt and bread of a lager with a nice hop balance. Not bad but not worth the money.
