Not a very nice beer at all - even though it was free. 330mL Bottle, drunk out of the bottle to. Very watery tasting beer with almost no malt to speak of. Faint traces of hops to finish, which leaves a unpleasant taste in your mouth.

It does not taste very good, but this is a cheap NZ beer which is 5% ABV so it does have a lot going for it. Highly bongable.

This beer is terrible - cheep and not refreshing - never brought it but had it in a can, might be better if it was in a frozen glass and straight out of fresh stock

This is evil poison but the size and shape of the cans make it perfect fodder for wizard sticks.
HOW TO PLAY WIZARD STICKS:
* Get a box of NZ Lager or something else that comes in the big cans.
* When you finish a can attach it to the bottom of the new one with gaffer tape.
* When there are no beers left, fashion helmets out of the boxes.
* Shove each other a bit and exchange insults until either party says I DECLARE WIZARD STICKS.
* Go down the park and have a big sword fight with the cans you have taped together.
* Get into a massive argument with your girlfriend.
* Don’t be too upset because your mate has passed out and it’s therefore not too embarrassing.
* Realise that bitchy flatmate has been listening the whole time.
* Pray to whatever gods you believe in to strike you down.

cheap an cheerfull, love the 440 ml cans, not for the faint hearted though.Good for barbacues etc, sometimes need a dash of lime juice with the first one.

I have only sampled this beer once whilst playing poker so my memories are foggy...
Doesn’t smell too bad, looks good in the can, the flavour is unique, the palate... I did however get a good impression - I won poker drinking this beer!

the finer points of NZL
-its easy to hide in the bushes out the front of the house party because its black cans camouflages nicely.
-you can always spot the ppl who have taxed your beer cos your the only one drinking it
-surely its the national beer that gives your a touch of pride with every sip

A classy black can, pours clear and pale yellow, goes down smooth, with an easy drinking light bodied lager style. Invigorating to the palate, with a harsh bitter tang and acrid aftertaste, however this does diminish upon regular and excessive consumption . A gold star for value, best served at room temperature for ease of skulling.
