sdriessen (320) - Dunedin, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 20, 2008
330mL bottle. Aromas of straw-like hops, cut grass and malt. Slight citrus zest. Pours golden with a rocky, white head. Exciting carbonation. A rather bready malt flavour. Hay, some hops. A dry finish. Light on the palate. Unpleasant lingering flavour of cooked cabbage... Nothing special...

SeanMacGC (332) - Dublin, IRELAND - NOV 18, 2008
Pours pale golden, with quickly dissipating white head. Faint aroma of not very much in particular, and quite weak on the palate too, with yeast predominating in the mouthfeel.

kiwibt (55) - , NEW ZEALAND - OCT 24, 2008
Slight hop aroma, clear golden colour with meduim head retention. Flavour is slight malt sweetness with a slight bitterness, finishes with a malt astringency. Overall a well made NZ lager, could be better balanced with hops and without the malt astringency.
