Not the most complicated of beers, but then for that it succeeded where a number of other beers in the commercial draught category fail: I wanted another one.
Malt driven and at its best when consumed colder than sin. An ideal after-cricket quaffer.

1.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours deep golden, bubbly rocky white head. Musty unpleasant nose, watery texture, weak malt, yeast. Slight sweetness, no hops at all. Not very nice.

Standard NZ brown draught. Malt biscuits nose & bready mouthfeel. No real body & nothing much else going for it. Overall a reasonable commercial draught beer that I’d probably drink ahead of similar produced by the bigger breweries.
