3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I liked this brew, perhaps because i wasn’t expecting much. A relative brought me back some exotic beers from the South Seas, and this was one. Can’t buy the argument that it doesn’t travel well. this one did. And it went a damned sight farther than Australia, mate.
It was malty, with a nice mouthfeel, the nose was more than acceptable and the flavor was beyond what I’d anticipated. I mean, New Zealand? I’m not saying it’s worth the cost of a South Seas vacation just to get some, but if I ever wind up in New Zealand, it’s comforting to know there’s a decent beer there.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a coppery gold with a firm lacy head. Unobtrusive malt on the nose, slightly biscuity with a low carbonation from the bottle. Quite sensionable and rates well. Not a bad drop at all

I wouldn’t say it’s a Bitter. It doesn’t taste like one for sure. It’s rather a bit poor quality golden ale with a touch of caramel, nothing like english Bitters. Poor taste, medium mouth feel. Not really worth to try.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Klar gylden og boblende, med hvidt skum, der forsvinder hurtigt. smag af humle og græs. Frugtagtig, lidt bitter. Helt metallisk og lidt sur. Metallisk smag er det eneste, der forbliver i ganen - ingen bitterhed, bare lidt vandig. En lidt tynd øl, hvor især eftersmagen skuffer.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Gold pour with a thin white head. Malty, grassy aroma. Taste is mostly just the malt, a little watery but easy drinking. Nothing spectacular but tastes alright

Draft, breakfast beer at the box. Pours clear gold with a white head. Pale crackery malts, mild bitterness, low sweetness, and a quick clean finish. Pretty good.

It’s beer. It is wet and contains the usual ingredients in the optimal way to make a sweet and bland beer. Once your tastebuds and wallet have been numbed by IPA, this is the perfect beer to push the evening to an inevitably messy end

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at the Prince of Wales, Singapore. Poured a clear medium amber with a frothy white head and some clingy lace. The aroma is sweet malt, woody hop. The flavour is light to moderate bitter with a light hoppy metallic palate. Light bodied with average carbonation.

12oz can pours a straw color with a bit of head. This used to be my beer of choice before I discovered craft. First time drinking it in a long time. Nicer than most similar beers.
