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

KnutAlbert (6713) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 20, 2008
Bottled in Germany. Utterly uninteresting, amazing that this is imported inot a country with good beers! Thin, watery, budweissery.

HugoPotomus (8) - NEW ZEALAND - JUN 19, 2008 does not count
330 ml bottle at a party after all else was finished. Highly carbonated and pale gold, head lost quickly. Nose:Weak sweet malt and no hops. Sickly sweet malt essence flavour with no hop to balance, Cheap DB finish reminds me of caramel and chinese beers. A victory of marketing over brewing, this dilutes a weakening brand further.

berkshirejohn (6075) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2008
330ml bottle from Plonkers, Friarsgate, Derby. Gold with a billowing white head; musty lychee aroma; stewed tea taste, not the most pleasant; with a sticky damp cardboard finish.

Hi Little head, clear golden appearance, crisp and easy to drink. No real body slight metallic aroma. I could drink a lot of this on a hot day, but would not rush to buy this again. I have had Monteith’s in New Zealand and I am sure it was better but I guess it could of been another beer.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2008
Pale gold. Slight grainy aroma with a metallic edge. Slight sourness. Does ’clean taste’ mean it doesn’t really taste of anything? Some bitterness. Unmemorable.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2008
A Mes rate: Bottle at the Porterhouse.
Pale gold with a thin white head. Bread, corn and ceral with some pukey malt that does it no favours at all. Slight hop giving a bitterish finish just about pulls it back from the death. Bland and seriously lacking in character. The unpleasant malt spoils it tremendously.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 15, 2008
Bottle. To be honest this wasn’t so bad, very boring yes, but quite drinkable. Kind a clean, yet, with a slightly grassy hop finish. Mouth feel is slightly metallic and on the sweet side. Quite refreshing, but boring.

beerledgend (1196) - Waterloo, Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - APR 12, 2008

harrisoni (17351) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2008
Bottle shared at Porterhouse, Covent Garden. Pale gold with thin white head. Not a great aroma, bit nothingy, faint hop on finish. OK, but doesn’t taste of much.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 29, 2008
Bottle, poured a dark gold with a white foamy head. A decent malty aroma. Dry and bland on the palate though, and very grainy.
