With hops grown in the clean air of Motueka, in New Zealand’s south island, this is a premium lager with a uniquely rich aroma and an exceptionally clean taste

DuffMan (9606) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 20, 2009
Enjoyed over blue cod fish & chips at the Drunken Sailor in Bluff. Pours a bronzy golden with a moderate soapy white head. Very grassy skunky hop aroma with sweet malt. Sweet grainy flavour, lovely hoppy character, very fresh.

Clear golden colour, off-white head. Aroma has fruity hops and malts. Flavour has a decent amount of hops. Fresh and clean. Dry finish. Nice surprise!

Demise (57) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 5, 2009
Pours a dark golden with thin white head. Quite malty on the nose, with subtle vanilla aromas coming through and a touch of yeast. Malt and citrus flavours, particularly orange, are most prominent, with a beautiful hoppy kick on the finish and a sweet malt aftertaste. Clean and smooth, with a lot of flavour. This is a very drinkable beer and one of my favourites from the Monteiths range.

Ungstrup (34666) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 3, 2009
Bottled. A hazy dark golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet malty with light notes of straw. The flavor is sweet malty with light notes of straw, leading to a dry bitter and strawy finish. The body is thin. Thanks yespr for sharing.

Not as bad as i thought it would be, DMS on the nose, not clean or crisp, full palate average to suck

Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 1, 2008
I have to say that this is a bit of a nothing beer, brewed to tackle market share of Steinlager Pure than to be a beer that people would want to drink. It has a light hoppy character and little else. Disappointing.
