4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

Good standard NZ lager with some strength. Well priced. Best if found in bottles.

Can from The Beer Cellar June 2013. Best thing I can say about this is that the can looked pretty good. As for what was in the can well that’s better left unsaid.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Inoffensive, and in saying that, better than I remember from my youth. Its watery tepidness makes it completely forgettable, which, in a cheap beer like this, is a good thing.

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.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Golden colour with a persistent white head and apparent carbonation. Smells of pale malt and a little skunk. Cold, yellow and mostly tasteless. There’s not a lot to this beer.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A very standard lager. Dry composition, smooth and mild. No special flavors, slightly more emphas to the aroma than usually for this kind of commercial brew. Easy drunk, easy forgotten.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
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

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
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.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
440mL can. Cheap and refreshing, A few points for being clean and hoppy. Slight phenolic aroma, but overall a wise choice that will add awesomeness to any average night.
