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.

sm89walt (1934) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 26, 2013
500ml bottle. A clear, bright bronzed straw colour with a small, slowly disappearing white head. Green, slightly grassy and almost vegetal hop notes coupled with subtle grain and biscuity pale malts. Light to medium body and medium carbonation with a clean, low to medium intensity though moderately protracted finish. Solid lager with decent hop presence without being out of character for the style.

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.

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.

Draught. Pours golden with a lively white head. Malt, cut grass and citrus. Good hoppiness for a lager. Thin-medium bodied with good carbonation. Crisp and bitter finish. A refreshing beer. It’s great to find well crafted lagers out here.

GoufCustom (1527) - HONG KONG - APR 26, 2016


330 ml bottle bought at YATA in MOKO, Mong Kok.

Clear light golden colour; Less than one-quarter finger head with soapy white foam which fades in 20 seconds; Fair sticky lacing with slight carbonation; Pungent aroma of Lager malt, with grains, floral, light molasses, biscuits, lemon and light grass; Light sweet taste of fair Lager malt, with light grains, floral, molasses notes, herbs, very light spices, dry biscuits, lemon, medium bitter hops and grass; Mid to light body. Slick palate; Mouth Feel is fair Pils maltyness in a fairly thin but slick background. Then dry maltyness taste come full on with floral hops. Low sweet, strong herbal and light spicy. Good lemon to round. Pretty good!… Hoppiness is floral, lemon and light grass in nose, and same in taste with strong herbs and light spice; Bitterness is fairly strong for a lasting, mid-astringent herbal bitter finish; Quite dry after atste. Biscuity and quite bitter to mouth.

Comments: On the surface, this one feels like a regular macro Lager, but its taste is where it shrines: strong maltyness, low sweetness and strong herbal lemony hops. Enjoyable, through not very crafty. Okay.

Pyobon (1268) - 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.

A nice enough brew (that is handily eclipsed by many of its Epic brethren).

beerledgend (1196) - Waterloo, Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - APR 12, 2008
Bright golden colour with thick white head. Good lacing. Mild hop taste. Hoppier version of the C&B Blue Goose. Very clean, well balance hop/malt lager.

jonnyguns (1105) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 14, 2013
Bottle from mane liquor. Drunk from the stubby. Aromas of biscuit malts and subtle grapefruit/tropical hops. Pleasant light fruity smell. Taste is really easy going. Nice blend of caramel sweetness to go with the biscuit malts and light tropical fruit presence. Nice session beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MJGG (952) - 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.
