(Bottle 33 cl) Credited to "Green Fern Brewery". Slightly hazy golden with a creamy, white head. Fresh, hoppy aroma. Medium body with a good malt base, some floral accents and a dry, fairly hoppy finish. There’s a vague sourness lurking underneath. 290108

DuffMan (6514) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 29, 2005
Pale gold, clear, mildly skunky-hop nose. Nice palate of grassy hops, clean finish.

motelpogo (6296) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - JAN 12, 2004
on the plus side, it is a kiwi lager that is over 4% and has plenty of hop character and moderate bitterness. but it's strangely chewy and there is something medicinal in the finish

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 13, 2003
Sweet and thin malty start (some caramelly malt), finish is lightly bitter and ever so slightly citric, relatively crisp and clean, but pretty boring standard sort of lager, but better than most.

   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 9/20
Aurelius (4050) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 2, 2007
Skunky malt aroma. Good cap, fair label, average yellow lager. Pleasant and malty at first but then does a Mr. Hyde and gets unpleasantly sour/metallic. Medium body, grainy aftertaste over German hops. Very average.

mkel07 (3092) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 11, 2009
330ml bottle. Cloudy with a miniscule head and a smattering of bubbles around the edge of the glass. Looks flat and thin.Very little carbonation and nop aroma to speak of . Thin bodied and tastses as flat as it looks.

bluevegie (3051) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 6, 2005
Copper orange body, poor head, the main thing going for it is that it is organic, smooth hop taste, a little lemony, light to medium body, short finish.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 19, 2008
Bottle, a fair bit of carbonation in the bright golden colour with no head whatsoever. A strong sweet malty aroma, slightly buttery. A creamy palate with a more drying finish. Mostly malty creamy flavours, with more hops in the finish. Not much to get excited about, but probably better than most NZ lagers.
