3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Clear golden pour with a large fluffy white head that lasts ages and leaves a good amount of lace. Quite a lot of fruity hops on the nose for a pilsener as well as notes of caramel, citrus, pine and malt. Flavour is similar, with extra notes of honey and melon. This also has a good solid body for a pils, is well balanced and has a pleasant dry, mildly bitter finish. Pilsener not being my favourite style I was quite impressed by this, but maybe thatís because this is a bit different to a lot of traditional pils...

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle - Aroma slightly citrus, but very faint and a muddy malt note. Slightly skunked maybe? Sweet biscuity malt, not a whole lot of bitterness,finishes slightly flabby and a little sweet. Have had this and its tasted a lot better - bottles still have a late 2010 expiry so must be reasonably fresh. Hmmm

A god send for uni students, This is a great example of easy-drinking Pilsener. Pours light golden straw with a tight little white head. Mild Hops and fruity aroma. A permanent resident in my fridge at home over summer, solid packaging to boot. Affordable as hinted above.

Light yellow/straw. Crystal clear, brilliant. Holds a nice white head. Light fresh hoppy floral aromas. Crisp bitterness, very light and dry with no significant after taste. Drinkable without being earth shattering.

Light, bright straw color. Aroma is hoppy with some grainy malt. Clean, light body, dry with moderate bitterness. Not a tremendous amount of flavor, but quite drinkable.

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2009 Not too bad. Loks a bit piss weak, all straw yellow and aroma is a typical, but it is a smooth drinking beer with a nice hoppy kick. Certainly not going to blow you away, but probably good for a few on a hot summer’s day. Gets an extra point for being reasonably priced.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml bottle. A clear golden lager with a small white head providing good lacing. Nose of sweet grainy malts and light fruity hops. Flavours are similar to the nose. Medium bodied with a clean smooth mouthfeel. Finishes with a medium dry hop bitterness. A solid Pils.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2009 Bottle 330 ml. Not my favourite style, but better than most pilseners. Aroma is hoppy and floral. The flavour has a strong malty start, with a good lasting bitterness. Colour is yellow, and it has a thin but long-lasting head. Palate is light and dry.

A tasty, tropical flavoured NZ pilsener. It brings joy to my heart that a Lion Nathan owned brewery can still make a tasty beer. This is pretty much my standby supermarket beer, and I hope it never goes away.
