3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Honey-gold with a small head and aromas of sweet malts and some grassiness. Rich, balanced flavors of malts, grains and spicy hops. No off flavors of cereals or corn. Good representation of this style. Slight bitter ending, but overall pretty impressive.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is hops, grass and malts. Flavour is grassy, papery, hoppy and very watery. Strong hayish hoppy aftertaste. But I still like the American hops in lagerbeer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy and light golden. Lively carbonation. Light yet chewy-smooth mouthfeel. Very doughy malts, with a honey-like sweetness. Hop aromas were nice (flowers, honey, faint spices, orange zest). Bitterness was mild; possibly adequate. Citrusy zing in the finish. Overall, pretty clean and easy to drink, without any crazy off flavors.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tasted 22/09/2006. 11oz bottle, with "scissors" cap, from BrewNZ.
Pale gold with no head. Funny aroma - biscuit dough, beans, spice and vinyl. Off-dry in the mouth with vinous and red apple notes in amongst it. Quite a pleasant flavour but it’s definitely no right. Very short, sans hops. Low caronation and light-medium weight. As bad as this beer smells, and as far off the mark it is, for a premium lager, I found it more drinkable than it reads.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Thius beer pours a golden yellow with little to no white head. Kinda has a skunky smell to it. Maybe hops? Very clean taste. Notes of the hops in the flavor. Not a bad lager Considering I’m not a fan of the lagers. Cheers!

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2007 Pours pale yellow w/ a shallow spritzy froth leaving a white ring.
Aroma is Heineken, baugh ! Light nectar w/ ample residual effers.
Flavors are malty and skunky (non-offensive) w/ a crisp, perfectly bittered finish.
Indeed a session brew but not anything out of the ordinary.
If you like Heineken you’ll appreciate it, and it’s from the great U.S. of A.
