3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle watching NZ Vs Slovakia. Brassy gold with a soft, steady carbonation propping up a fine white collar. Better-than-pale-lager aroma with some kolsch-type Asti fruit, wet cork and honey. Chunky malt character on the palate for a 4 percenter; hints of bread and honey; dabs of melon-like fruitiness beneath. Clean and decent lager, a cut above your bog standard global swill.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Bacchanalia, Cambridge. Odd ring pull cap. Gold with a white head. Doughy malt aroma. A little sourness in the taste and some bitterness. Predictable and ordinary. However I did drink it after mowing the lawn, so it gained some credit for refreshing my thirst.

A good clean, well made lager. I like the use of the Motueka hops as it adds a different element to the beer. Would drink again.

Bottle, GBK, Liverpool. Typical golden lagery looks with a fast fading white head. Slightly sweet, malty aroma. Bready, insipid flavour. Dry finish. Had worse, but pretty tedious stuff.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft at an Irish pub (canít remember the name) in downtown Auckland. Pours clear gold with a medium white head. Light and earthy, with hay, malt, and wheat in the aroma and flavor. Simple and just as good or better than the American macro lagers.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. The hops donít seem to do their job for this one. Light and malty aroma, and sweet taste. Palate is thin with low carbonation. Yellow colour with a thin head that doesnít last.
