33 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden yellow with a small and chalk white head. Aroma is light citrusy and grassy, rather crisp and inviting. Citrusy, light cornish and crisp grassy bitter flavoured. Medium dry and vague citrusy flavoured finish. Good pale lager.

This beer has a nice hoppy and sweet aroma. And it has a beutiful godlen color and a fine head, though it disappears a little too fast. The taste is a nice crisp sweet one, turning slightly bitter, and ending with a prickling on the tongue. A nice pilsener.

(Bottle 33 cl) Oh sweet memories, this was a clear favourite of mine many years ago in New Zealand. In particular I loved the fantastic aroma hops. Just smelling this beer was half the pleasure. But either my memory is failing me or my dearly beloved Steinie has really declined in recent years.
Pilsener golden with a decent, creamy head leaving a pretty lacework. Decent malty body and a hoppy finish. Just another ordinary lager. Sadness... 030805

oh6gdx (20333) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 30, 2005
Bottled. Pale golden colour, small foamish white head. Malty and hoppy nose. Malty flavour which turns into biting hops in finish. Clean lager, but nothing very special.

omhper (19378) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 10, 2006
Bottled. Finally I got around to taste the real NZ brewed stuff. There’s some grassy hops up fron and it has a decent, rounded buttery malt profile. The bitterness is low, but for a mass market beer it’s pretty solid.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Bottle in Raratonga. Fairly full on lager. Rich malt and slightly bitter. Full bodied but overall nothing special.

fiulijn (14552) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 10, 2003
Light blond color. Light straw aroma. Very simple, with a light hay and honey taste. Too simple.

harrisoni (13733) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2007
33cl can. Gold, thick white head. Slightly metallic stale cereal aroma. Faint lemon hop. Some creaminess. Yeah it’s ok. It’s a lager with some nice crispness on finish.

Oakes (12561) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 29, 2002
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2005 Pale golden colour. Grassy aroma with hints of pale malt. Mild bitterness with grassy notes and again a light, balancing pale malt. Fairly dry finish. I haven’t had this in over 12 years, and I’m pretty surprised. Much hoppier than you’d expect from a national lager brand, it’s on a par with the lighter German pils like Beck’s or Warsteiner and depending on the relative freshness, could easily surpass them. Green Bullet is a unique hop to us non-antipodeans and its character can be likened to Nugget on the bitterness side and a dull, thudding noble offshoot in terms of flavour.
