2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Appearance: Crystal clear and golden in colour. Pours with a giant fluffy head, which fades quickly. Mild to low carbonation. Aroma: Crisp grassy hops, with biscuity malts. There is also a little grapefruit in there. Taste: Not as bitter as I was expecting, the hops are quite restrained, and only provide a small amount of bitterness towards the end. A bit bland overall unfortunately. Mouthfeel: Light, thin and carbonic (contrary to the appearance). Drinkability: It is very easy to drink but the flavours are far too muted, and it gives the beer a bland taste, which is a shame. I can see why they pitched it as a dinning beer.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle (in NZ). Pours a clear dark gold with a filmy white head. Just a hint of citrus in the hoppy, but slightly soapy, nose. The carbonation is overpowering. A little soapy on the palate as well, and a bit sweet. Thin with some metallicness in the finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750ml Bottle ( Drink, Tallinn) - Dark golden in colour. Hoppy, but slightly sterile aroma with some hints of grapefruit, tea and malt. Fruity and hoppy taste which unfortunately has some sterile elements. Not a bad attempt, but they could do much better with this.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
No carbonation at all and a sweet yellow cloying flavour. Cheap corn. Why export this half way round the world. Bad piece of marketing group driven brewing.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Is it just me or does the bottle look really poor? I know it means F all but...Anyway, on to the pretty average beer. Pale gold with thin head that went quicker than a months wage in my girlfriends pocket. Yeah there is hops in there but not that I’d shout about. Drinkable, better than some of the shite out there but could do better.

[From the archive, yay!]
Fairly blonde, and lagerish (I know this sounds rather daft now) with a somewhat citrusy aroma. Now, where are those hops? At least it was called Beer to Dine For when I tried it but King Hop? Give me a break.
Not bad, though.

At the tasting session by Joes. A clear yellow colored beer, with a white head. It disaeppers quickly. The aroma of caramel and sweet malt. The taste sweet and fruity, citrus. It’s a little bitter. There are not many hops. The aftertaste has some sweetness.
