Bottle bb 09/09
Golden yellow with small head. Estery banna aroma, slight green apples with little hop.
Estery banna flavour,sweet with little hop flavour or bitterness. Almost a watered down thin malt flavour.
Overall the estery fermentation profile is a bit to over powering for the style.

...bottle. Poured a clear darkish gold with no head. No carbonation, and had hints of malt on the nose. Flavor was not good, had something that just wasn’t right about it. Maybe I had too high of an expectation, but this one just wasn’t right. Had miniscule hints of cereal and grain, but that’s about it. Watery, no body or flavor like there should be for a golden lager. Finished dry with a bad aftertaste, very flat tasting.

Fairly good golden lager. Flavour is not overlly bitter, but not overly exciting. Pretty plain and dry tasting beer. A golden pour with a medium head.

(On tap) Clear, golden with a dense, white head that leaves some laces. Lightly sweet aroma of malt and brewwing cereal. Medium body with fairly sweet malts and brewing cereal. A classic Kiwi lager - just with a bit more body. 250108

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle (330ml). Poured a rich gold with yellow highlights and a frothy white head. Aroma was musky with some hay, moderate malt, honey and citrus at the back. Taste was initially sweet and smooth with more honey followed by a mild bitterness with biscuity notes towards the end. Light bodied with a watery texture and short/sweet finish. Not to bad for a commercial larger.
