330mL Bottle. Pours straw yellow with fluffy white head. Aromas are of straw, floral/spicey hops and oats. Flavours: Sweet malt with a hint of grassy hop resin. Well structured. Clean, bitter finish. Very, very good for a lager.

500 ml bottle from Friar Tuck in Fenton. Pours a pale yellow color, completely clear, with a fizzy white head. Aroma of grassy and herbal hops, straw, wheatgrass, and barley malts. Flavor follows suit closely. Light-bodied, with a grassy mouthfeel and high, crisp carbonation. Very dry throughout and on the finish. Great hop character- fresh, crisp, and herbal. I’m surprised to see how much other Americans are buying this for; at one of the notoriously highest-priced stores in the St. Louis area, it was about $5. Well worth it, too, as it’s the best pale lager I’ve ever had. New Zealand, you’ve done it again.

minch25 (577) - Medford, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 23, 2010
clear light pale yellow body, medium white head. Grassy herbal Saazish aroma. Very tasty. Light body, very drinkable, dry bready pale malts, moderately spicy hopping. This beer is probably way under the radar, but definitely worth drinking. Only downside is the price.

Sammy (9279) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 1, 2010
Pleasant enough lager from Premiere Gourmet. Pours light yellow, with no lasting head to speak of, which is difficult the way I pour. Neutal aromas. Good drinker this hot late summer night. Average mouthfeel for he style. Dry finish. Nothing special to speak about taste wise other than not offensive.

Gold pour. Malt, light hops, slightly herbal and sweet. Good for what it is, but not the interesting.

20100707 500ml bottle from State Line. Straw colored with fine white head that mostly fades. Aroma is very pleasant, very mild, with a slight grassy hop, hay, and slight cream of wheat. Body is rather thin and incredibly dry, however mostly without bitterness until very late on the palate when a sharp herbal bite swoops in out of left field with a refreshing tingle. Kind of reminds me of mineral water where you get a mouthful and are thinking, meh, just water, but then the whole of the thing just erupts in one tiny moment of sensory joy. Palate and profile are very similar. Flavor doesn’t add much, if anything. It’s actually remarkably bland, but there’s not a thing about it I find off-putting or foul. In fact, I have really enjoyed drinking this one. Nicely done beer, but not nine bucks nice.
