ok, this is an everyman beer, it’s nothing special or different or outstanding, it is peaky and edgy around points that are sharp, better, sweet and tangy. There is no craft in this, but the do this week in week out, for a day beer it’s not shabby, but it’s not a beer you should boast about

From a bottle. Not too bad but not their best stuff, a little bland, mild hops, sessionable.

Ambar tirando a oscura de aroma acaramelado. Dulce y ligera en boca, y final lupulado frutal. Equilibrada y bien hecha.

Garry_Evans (62) - HONG KONG - JAN 20, 2015
Drinkable enough but nothing special. Dark brown with thin head. Aroma of light oats and hazelnuts. Taste is thinLr without much bitterness. Finish quite short. Really a session beer with only 3% alcohol ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap in Te Anau. Amber in color, unsurprisingly. Faint nose, underwhelming taste, but easy to drink. And quite refreshing, after a long day on the road.

jbeatty (1199) - New York, USA - NOV 30, 2014
Draft, 11/8/2014. Dark amber copper pour, sparkling, solid foam head. Aroma is light straw and biscuit, fresh grass, soft melon hops. Taste is amber malts, mild toast and light grassy finish. Light body. Decent, but nothing special I think.

JaKeAFC (709) - ITALY - JUL 19, 2014
35 cl bottle from Wellcome in Hong Kong, 4%. Light brown color, clear, small fine offwhite head, mineral and spicy nose. Aroma is brown sugar, some fruity overtones with leaves. Taste is flat, some sweetness and a subtle bitterness. Carbonated, light bodied, dusty texture, uncertain finish with a caramel leftover.
