Fizzy soft damp sock smell. In the mouth lots of fizzy carbonation that tries to make you ignore the skunky sourness. Very little bitterness, just more damp sock on the aftertaste. Good example of the New Zealand light-lager style. There might have been a hop waved somewhere around the brewing vat, at some stage.

BlackHaddock (6085) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2016
Tall thin green can on a New Zealand Airline flight from London to Los Angeles on 25th April 2016. Typical lager/pilsner look, golden and bright with a fast fading white head. Very little aroma or taste, but refreshing and clean. A little more grain than hop in the brew flavour wise maybe and unoffenceive f a might boring.

Luvystypotables (1558) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - APR 5, 2016
Not a huge fan of lagers but this is very sessionable, pours a clear gold color with a lasting white well laced head. Notes of malt and yeast on the nose a crisp clean taste slightly grassy with notes of yeast and malt. Lighter body with no aftertaste.

Not undrinkable. It’s actually quite charming in it’s own way. You know, like when you see a chimp that has painted lipstick on his lips... it’s kinda like, "stoopid", but ya gotta laugh. Well, that pretty much sums up this beer. Give the chimp a cuddle, for fuck’s sake..But then, maybe I’m the half-wit because there seems to be a lot of primates drinking this shit.

I haven’t got any idea why this should be sold amongst "Special beers" (where I found it). A rather plain and grassy tasting Lager, nothing special.

jamaty (1777) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 8, 2015
Dorada muy clara con blanca espuma muy abundante. Rico aroma citrico y malteado. Muy ligera y suave, superbebible. Mantiene el buen tono del aroma, tirando algo a dulce. Media carbonatacion. Buena lager

Hop_Hedonist (454) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 21, 2015
A go-to clean, zippy, thirst-quenching, inoffensive watery pale lager - as usual the more I drink of the bottle and the warmer it gets, the less I like it, but it’s better than most in this category.

Benzai (12769) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAR 19, 2015
Bottle @ home shared with Thompson. Clear golden color, small to average sized white head. Smell and taste malts, quite crisp and clean, a slight grainy sweetness and a nice malt bitterness. I must say I just got home from an intensive workout so I was thirsty as hell. Anyway, I liked it.

ordybill (1301) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - FEB 23, 2015
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- ahh, the green glass skunkiness Appearance- Straw yellow with a large white head. Taste- Skunky and rather dull, not good palate- A light bodied brew with medium carbonation. Overall-Avoid this beer, it is dull, skunky and very forgettable, Overall: Hardly exciting, but not at all distasteful. This is the beer we should have been drinking in college. Doesn’t require a lot of thought, goes Dow fast and easy
