3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Beautiful golden amber. Really nice to look at. The nose is fruity and citrusy, almost like a white wine. The pallate is similarly winey, with voluptuous and almost ísquishyí malt leading into a medium level of hoppy bitterness. As the name suggests, it has a good deal of hops for a commercial beer which brings to it a nice crispness but this is somehow let down by the malt which is lacking in this regard. It also feels a tad watery. All in all a decent pilsener, especially for the price paid.

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.

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.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Thin bright white head of fine bubbles. Skunks ass in the aroma. Seems like it is loaded with saaz hops. I can already feel the headache coming on. Some light lemon and rice in the aroma too. Color is a clear gold with almost no carbonation. Light cereal grains, lemongrass and straw in the flavor. Significant lingering bitter with very little body. Not a beer i would recommend. Not my cup of tea!

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Tasted 8/2/2014. BB 23/08/14. Poured a clear golden colour with a one-finger white bubbly head that diminished quickly to a collar that laced very poorly. Carbonation low with medium sized bubbles. Aroma of clean fresh sweet malt with passionfruit and maybe other tropical fruits. Taste is clean with slightly fruity sweetness and very slight bitterness. Light body. OK but does not distinguish itself from any other pilsner.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. New Zealand holiday 2011-12. Old notes. The aroma is a bit flowery. Pale, golden coloured beer with a white head. The taste is a bit malty (more than average dutch pilseners), light citric hoppy. Good thirst quencher.
