Poored well to give a large white head. Light golden colour. Head settled to a thin covering. Pineapple aroma, nice, but not in keeping with the pilsner style. Not crisp enough and lacking carbonation. Sweetness, too heavy mouthfeel. Compared to the Tuatara I just had it is lacking.

330 ml. bottle, served in a lager glass on 5/12/06. Medium gold with a rapidly dissipating white head. Orangey herbal flavour and aroma with a nice oily quality. I’m sick of tasting water all the way through my beer, so the above qualities are a nice change. Shame about the price, though - NZ$13.??/six-pack. Also, with a name like ’Hoprocker’, the people who created it should at least have tried to compete with some of the "bigger" foreign beers.

Tasted 17/11/2006. 33oml bottle from New World Miramar. Pale to mid-gold with a pure white, disappearing, airy head. Orange oils and herbal notes on the nose, pleasantly fresh and hoppy. Dry in the mouth, with lovely pungent hop flavour - herbal and fruity - and an oily finish that’s screams Sauvin! It’s actually more bitter in the finish than I first thought. Herbal oily notes linger. Fresh. Pretty good drinking but it’s going to be a love it or hate it bere. I love the hops but I hate the name, enough so to deduct a point. Dorkus malorkus marketing man tries to emulate Hopsmacker (and sadly, nobody over-ruled it!?).
