Clear yellow with a low white head. Malty, with some citrus and honey aromas. Brief hop finish, light palate. Medium carbonation. Quite ok pale lager.

Nice fruity aroma. Pale clear golden colour with reasonable head. Nice and fruity up front with apple hints in aftertaste. Light body with low carbonation.

The smell was pure skunk. A friend recommended it, the bastard. The taste though was different, but in an average way. The head died pretty quick but the edging left lacing. Pretty much like the scent, but minus the major skunk. Really pils like. Prominent hop bite in the swallow leaving behind a trail of toasted malt and maybe a bit of lemon rind?

This was poured into a pilsener glass. The appearance was a decent looking clear to somewhat light hazy yellow color with a decent carbonation seen rising a rocky foamy two finger white head. The smell had mainly a grassy/hay-like qualities running over top of a light skunkiness (yes, I know I have a green bottle, its okay, I shall proceed). The taste was grassy and hay-like again and added a light sweet corn-like feature to it that was okay but not great. The aftertaste was kinda harsh and assaulting a bit through the skunky yet sweet corn-like feature. On the palate, this one sat fairly light and had a decent sessionable quality about it. Overall, I say this was a decent pale lager, its nothing to go bonkers about but if anything I think I’d try this again on tap.

Poured from 330ml bottle into pint glass. Appearance: pours a sudsy thick white head which gradually recedes leaving decent lacing. Color is a clear light gold with abundant streaming carbonation. Aroma: initially a bit of skunk (green bottle), once this dissipated remaining aroma is a combination of pungent grassy hops and sweet bread dough. Mouthfeel: light and frothy with a drying finish. Flavor: nice combination of lightly toasted barley, a hint of caramel and toffee, strong grass hop presence as well as some bitter hops in the finish. Overall: excellent and well done pale lager. Would like to try it from a can or on tap to see if the initial skunk is not present.

Is this Bud packaged under New Zealand label? Bit of a stale/rotten aroma. Cheap sweetness, followed by water aftertaste. Suspiciously similar to Budweiser.

Blonde pour with a thin head. Nice hops aroma, crisp hops taste with grass notes. Nice lager in my opinion

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein goldgelbes Bier mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch leicht malzig, getreidig, leicht süß. Geschmack wässrig, leicht malzig getreidig, minimal herb.

On tap a the local pub. Very drinkable when not poured from the bottle. Some malt flavours and a mild hop bitterness.

Minimal aroma. Pale yellow complexion; also filtered so it’s very transparent. Light crisp taste; hardly any flavour and only slightly hopped. Dry metallic after taste. Not a great beer but as far as mainstream beer goes it’s passable. Definitely best enjoyed on a hot day
