The good thing about this beer is that it is available in the departure lounge at Auckland airport. This means you don't have to pay for it. The bad thing is that it is another disappointing version of the same lager style available from everywhere else on the planet. No hop aroma to speak of and a poor fizzy head that lasts only briefly. I think this is my 100th lager rating, so a disappointment that this should be it.

Ordinary. Tries to be something it's not. I simply did not enjoy this beer. Thankfully it came in a 330ml bottle and I didn't have to endure another 45ml more than I normally would have to.

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2003 This beer is average. Has a nice golden colour, starts off well with a nice solid pang of bitterness but fades away and dissapoints. Its missing something vital. cheers

Jahills (151) - Cambridge (Hobart), AUSTRALIA - OCT 11, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2003 No head present: but a great orangy colour. a nice malty smooth brew that is nice and easy to slide down the throat. not much continuing aftertaste, but not a bad drop.

This beer has a light yellow body - hue with a bitter initial flavor and a light body.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 21, 2003
MGC with a touch of amber colour. Small short lasting white head. Initially quite metallic with some fruity nectar malt aroma as it warms. Quite low carb, slightly oily mouth feel. Short stale bitter and light malt flavours. Artificial acetone alcoholo like finish and aftertaste. Real or below ordinary.

SilkTork (5346) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2003
Bottle. In the great beer quest, hunting over the world for fine beers, this is simply a tin shack by the side of the road. Metallic aroma and - oops, no that was me, I just farted and thought the beer had got interesting... Um, there is a bit of fruit in the flavour, something tropical - sort of mango like. Mmmm, that tin shack is becoming more interesting. Flat, watery finish with that metallic quality returning. A tin shack it may be, but inside there are comfy sofas and palm trees.

Poured a pretty dense head with some lacing, has a lite malty aroma and is generally inoffensive.

Hmm. Pretty shabby. Very watery and bland... I was hoping for more after the black one.

Low on aroma and taste, not quite as sweet as Aussie Standards. Why bother?
