1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
another one of harrington’s lagers, and they obviously don’t think much of it themselves. a bit more malt and hops than i’m used to in nz draughts, but that’s about it. very bland.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
For years my father had told me to start drinking sid (or when you rotate the bottle 180 degrees, ’pis’)
But I always thought that my Southern Draught was better. Woah. What a mistake I made there. South Island Draught is delicious. Perfect for a cold evening in a tree, wandering the streets with friends or taking to parties.
It has a delicious yeasty odour that shows how much care Harringtons puts into their natural brewing process, the bottle is green in colour and cylindrical in shape. The beer I find, is best enjoyed straight from the bottle at only $10.95 you can’t go wrong. No wonder it’s nearly always sold out and impossible to get hold of!

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
(Bottle 33 cl) Clear, golden with a rough, off-white head that dissipates in no time. Somewhat unclean chemical aroma and some overripe fruit. Thin in body with a heavy carbonation. Not much malt to be detected but a little caramel and some overripe fruit. Almost no hops. I doubt it gets any cheaper than this. 280108
