One of the better cheap beers available in NZ. It tastes slightly better than Southern Draught.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Simply put this is Godís nectar.
A delicious, mellow golden blend subtly combining a noble hop taste with a smooth yet aromatic finish.
The origins of the brew is also legendary originating from the Maori God Tawhikiwhiki. He created the blend when attempting to rid the nation of evil. Once all evil was smashed on the concoction, life was fantastic in the Land of the Long White Cloud.
A great night starter, a great night finisher, a great pick up line; pure and simple a brew for all ages.

upon opening the aroma almost smells like week old dog crap, and im sure those who drink it agree. As for everything else you get what you pay for and since its the cheapest beer in Dunedin ($1 a can) it is also an unofficial currency among the wider student population. Overall its like Gods piss, yellow, foul, and boring but its cheep

Clear bright orange colour with no head. Big malty flavour. Mass produced swell.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can. Pours a clear golden with a medium white cap. Slightly sweet grainy aroma and flavour. Clean and simple, nothing offensive. Considering the price, it certainly beats many of its peers in the macro pale lager department. Having said that, Iím not certain this is even "macro" in nature. Nowhere on my can is there an address, logo, or trademark of any kind. Iíll have to dig a little deeper to see if it really is made by DB. It doesnít aste lke it!

0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Tastes like somebody put a cigarette out in almost every can. Cheap as hell though so if you and the missus canít afford Double Brown pick up a few of these babies. Best drunk from a tube.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Grainy aroma, some hint of citrus if I really get imaginative. Crisp flavour, leaves a metallic taste but otherwise no complaints for how much I paid. This one costs about $1 a can, and tastes better than most popular NZ lagers (Tui, Speights etc). And it doesnít claim to be an IPA.

Cheap, easy drinking. No point in describing an aroma.. This one is the first choice among students in Dunedin.
Personally, I have nothing to complain about. This beer does not lie - it is an extremely simple brew, solely made for the purpose of having a good time whilst sticking to a budget. Not a lager for the discerning palate. Extra points for itís brutal honesty!
