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 (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.

Pours an pale orange color with a small fizzy head. Nice sweet flavors. Good

Bottle. Bright, clear golden pour with a large fluffy white head that lasts ages and leaves a lot of lace. Nose is both hoppy and malty with notes of citrus, pine, grass and caramel. Flavour is more malty but is otherwise the same as the aroma. Very well balanced with plenty of lively carbonation and a nice dry, bitter finish. One of the best lagers I’ve had in a while.

ndon (857) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2010
Pale lager that pours a pale yellow colour, with a white head that lasts. Not as good as Epic’s other beers, but a good place to start

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 4, 2008
Tasted 04/05/2008. 330ml bottle from New World, Thorndon. Pours a bright yellow gold with a thinning creamy white head. Delightfully fresh, zingy herbal hop aroma has a hint of floral note. A little cornflour malt character on the nose too. Very clean. Superbly fresh! A little sweet aroma of biscuit dough malt at the bottom of the glass. The first few sips are bursting with that herbal hop flavour. Very clean malt character supporting. Medium bitterness. Stops short. Spot on carbonation and weight. Pretty good recipe, great execution (wouldn’t expect less from Epic). In then end, like an amped up Stella (a beer I do like), it feels like it needs a little less hop flavour and/or a more assertive bitterness. I’d have preferred to see Epic Brown Ale than a green-bottled premium but I’m not the target market and this is a pretty solid addition to the family.

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

stoutnick (654) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUL 24, 2013
A decent lager here. Nice malt hop aroma. Taste Is fruity, tangy with a mild toffee sweetness. Not crisp or refreshing, but full flavoured for a lager.

Bottle from Plonk. Bright amber/gold, nice floral/tropical fruit aromas, good bitterness, well balanced, easy drinking lager. Enjoyed it.

Rangi (617) - NEW ZEALAND - MAY 22, 2014
It’s a lager but a very well made lager. Subtle all round. Some pleasant biscuit come through with a nice amount of sweetness. Great clear amber colour. Refreshing. A nice well made lager but have a epic pale ale straight after and you wonder why lager has been the most popular style for so long.

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.
