Draught at Shakespeare Tavern, Auckland. Pours pale golden with small white head. Grainy aroma and flavour with grassy notes. Thin bodied with low bitterness. Forgettable beer.

RichardGretton (4640) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2008
Draught at brew pub. Pale golden beer with a strong head. The aroma is pilsner like with hints of brussel sprouts. The flavour is yeasty with a bitter finish. Overall an average yeasty and dry beer.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 14, 2008
Draught at the brew pub, a carbonated pale gold with a thin white head. No notable aroma. A sweet malty palate. Dry, with a grainy aftertaste. More mediocrity from Shakespeare.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 17, 2008
(On tap) Clear golden with a small, lacing, white head. Fresh and slightly flowery aroma. Light in body with good malt accents and a fresh, flowery whiff of hops. The finish is dry with some bitterness. A very drinkable Lager. 080208

Dredd (812) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - MAR 7, 2007
Nice lager. Very yellow colour with thin head lemon aroma, some citrus and low bitterness. As some others noted, good for such low ABV.

omhper (23519) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 10, 2006
Draught at the brewpub. Clear pale yellow, brief head. Vague dusty hop aroma. Medium sweet with soft, gentle mouthfeel. Light body and low bitterness. Less character than in their Bohemian lager, but drinks well.

JoeMcPhee (9267) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 1, 2005
Almost colourless, pale straw coloured. Some light grassy hops, OK bitterness for the style. Hay and grainy malt flavours. This is obviously what they brew to pay the bills, but it’s pretty good for what it is.

   AROMA 3/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
beerledgend (1196) - Waterloo, Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - APR 18, 2004
Pale gold colour, no head. Aroma not present or very weak. Big bitter hoppy taste. Tradional English style lager.

Sully (1380) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - JUL 1, 2003
Low initial aroma but there is a great bitterness in the taste and mouthfeel. At the low ABV this is a good beer.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 16/20
Kaya161 (1139) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 8, 2002
Spicy Saaz aroma. Golden-yellow colour with a mo0derate white head. A nice bitterness is present throughout this beer’s failry dry, spicy, hop flavour. I like it.
