Rangi (560) - NEW ZEALAND - MAY 30, 2014
Clear highly carbonated poor with fizzy white head. Pungent hops from start to Finnish. Tropical passion fruit - great kiwi hop flavour. Nice difference the highly hoped lager from the ale was that it seemed light not overly filling then again might have just been because it was the first beer of the day.

Niksko (315) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 15, 2014
Pours a golden straw color with foamy off white head. Nose is approachable. Floral, some passionfruit, slightly spicy phenolic aroma, a tiny bit of orange marmalade. Flavor is pretty similar. Passionfruit, a little spice, slightly sweet marmalade note, lightl bitter finish. Very focussed, with a light body, fine carbonation and moderately long finish. The yeast character in this is really the star. The phenols and the slightly marmaladey sweet note taste very Belgian and they make this much more than a ’premium lager’. Interesting for sure.

Excellent lager from the Aro Garage. Resiny floral herby aroma due to mega amounts of hops. Nice medium white head and golden coloured beer. medium bitter taste, crisp finish

beer-yum (439) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 6, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2014 An excellent lager that would probably make any ale drinker happy. Clean taste somehow remains complex (and that is not the brew talking). Probably better than my initial rating indicates - will endeavour to try again soon and update with an amended score (as required).

3fourths (7887) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 28, 2013
An unfiltered, sparkling, strong golden lager which has undergone secondary fermentation with Champagne yeast. From the bright tank it was highly gassy with a billowy white head. Champagne yeast is immediately evident with a strong calcium minerality and bright phenol profile, it’s airy, dusty, earthy but clean with developing floral perfume character. Wonderfully clean with high carbonation, soft malt texture, medium sweetness, medium bitterness with a rich, filling mouth feel. Nelson hops giving it that obligatory Sauvignon Blanc fruitiness with softer touches of dried grass and herbs. Well-made and interesting but novel; likable in small amounts.

Nice colour and aroma, head retention is decent. Flavour has hints of tropical fruit, particularly pineapple. Palate is quite dry but has a lovely fizz. Overall a very nice drop.

Delicious. From the aroma you know exactly what you’re getting. Floral, spicy, lemon, grapefruit, grass, hay. Hop-forward with a nice clean bitterness, this delicious fact does tend to emphasize the light(-ish) lager body. A little under-carbonated, maybe. Maybe. My bottle was gone before you could say a one syllable word.

kiwianer (3319) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 11, 2013
The head is good, the body blond. It smells malty, yeasty, hoppy. The taste is dry-malty, special yeasty, bitter-dry, hoparomatic, nice! 3.7

Davros (1869) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 11, 2013
Pours gold with a large, fading head. Nose shows spicy and floral hops along with some grassy notes and a little soft malt. Flavours include grainy malt, spicy and herbal hops and a very faint passion fruit note. Quite an aggressive sharp bitterness in the finish. Needs more carbonation.
