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.

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

Aroma bread, honey, hot butter, lemon and grass. Taste is same with a bit of fruitiness. well carbonated with puckering lemon and bitter tang. Very clean and well made, but not my thing.

Nice clear pale appearance and moderate aroma, fairly yeast and malt dominated with some hop coming through. Mild bitterness and smooth mouth feel. An enjoyable easy drinking lager.

Rangi (622) - 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.

3fourths (8344) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Draft. Lightly hazed gold with a thin film of a head. Aroma of lemon, soap, minerals and over-cooked popcorn. Medium sweetness, tart. medium-low bitterness, medium body is a bit chewy and goopy with a sugar syrup consistency, combined with a popcorn flavor and texture and a sour lemon candy finish. Can’t find anything to like about it.

sm89walt (1783) - 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.

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

kiwianer (3413) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 14, 2013
The head is good, the body is blond. It smells sweet, hoppy, fruity,malty. The taste is hoparomatic, fruity, refreshing, bit alcoholic, bit bitter. Very nice for a Lager. 11/12/11/12/12/12
