UPDATED: AUG 7, 2015 330ml bottle into glass. Sweet malt/corn nose. Pours a pale yellow with a solid two finger white head. A few bubbles here and there. Quite zingy in the mouth. Thin texture but not watery. A little bitterness. Finish is abrupt, sweet, papery, even a touch of fruit. Not bad, easy drinking.

Pdubyah (529) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 13, 2015
This is pretty much a stock standard pale lager. High aroma, mostly malts, low hops, biscuits notes, but no bite or depth or length. It’s a pleasant enough no frills nothing to write home about beer is what.
