Tasted 03/12/2007. Tap, at the brewpub.
Lovely crisp, and well-lagered, pale lager from New Zealandís spiritual home of real ale. Very nice balance of herbal hop and fragrant malt, with a nice touch of sulphur. A shade more hop than you might expect from a Munich lager but served in good condition.

Tried with Gareth at brewery. Smelt floral with pungent sweetness and maybe strawberries too (?). Itís nice: clean and crisp with super quick fresh herby taste ( a bit like their Pils). Gareth reckoned it got better as it warmed a degree or three and I agree. More flavours were realeased but a kind of barny straw arrived to muddy the experience.
