beer-yum (1263) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 13, 2015
Restrained fruity aroma in a golden pour. Nicely balanced taste with clean bitter finish. Not bad for a mass market beer - and one of the best from this brewery.

Bule (1771) - California, USA - MAR 4, 2015
12oz bottle pours a golden color with a bit of head. Some mild hops, but otherwise tastes like a pale lager style.

UPDATED: AUG 25, 2015 OK go-to beer when there’s little else on offer. This used to be better, but I think the accountants have taken control and dropped the hops. Go for the Macs Green Beret if it is alongside - that’s quite decent for a mass market brew

jbeatty (1241) - New York, USA - NOV 30, 2014
Draft in Blenheim, 11/5/2014. Pours a pale golden color, frothy head with nice lacing. Aroma is straw, medium sweetness, pear, light grass. Aroma is light pilsener malt, light sweetness, spicy hop kick in the middle, lingering mild toast bitterness. Light body. Decent pilsener with more pronounced hop profile.
