Head is initially large, frothy, light brown, fully lasting.
Body is dark brown.
Aroma is moderately malty (cocoa, toasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers).
Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter.
Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Simple and dull aroma, equally bland in the mouth. Looks nice, but otherwise a snoozer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Savannah, Ga. - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 750 ml cage corked bottle. Dark chestnut brown pour with a spongy off-white head. Slightly sweet aroma with some nutty accents and a hint of chocolate. Flavor is solid with some nutty accents, very mild chocolate, brief mention of dates. Mouthfeel is on par for a lager. Nothing jumps out at you - but a decent drinking lager.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark murky brown with a little bit of a ruby highlight, under a foamy light khaki head. Aroma had a stronger note of biscuit than I expected, but also had a light touch of cold toddie coffee with a light chocolaty graininess. Flavor was nicely subtle but still nuanced and well rounded. Smooth dark earthy toffee mixed with some biscuity yeastiness and some toast, with just a hint of earthy grainy chocolate sweetness. Overall kinda drier than I hoped, but this is a nice lager experience.

Thanks to ericandersnavy for sharing this beer. This is my first beer from the great country of New Zealand.
The beer pours an orange-brown color with a white head. The aroma is pretty basic with toffee malt. The flavor is more of the same, lots of toffee. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not bad, but nothing specials.
