2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Almost reminded me of a Heineken on seeing the bottle and smell but whilst in NZD decided to go for it. Pours a golden color, medium foam head, grassy notes. Some sweet and bitter in the taste , goes down smooth. Not bad overall, better than some skunky Heinekens I have tried, a hit and miss with them though. Maybe this beer as sourced direct from NZ and not exposure to any light or shipment.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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

Bottle pours a clear pale straw/golden with a large white head. Aroma of skunked grassy hops. Malt and yeast flavor, yep that’s a pale lager. I’d take it over say bud light.

not really getting a whole lot of difference between this and the premium, even side by side. both passable pale lagers, but not anything to return to.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Where and how: bottle 330 ml
Aroma green bottle issue up front. Musky wet cloth, but not too heavy as there are worse cases. Lighter, herbal notes with grainy backing.
Top: bright white top, sparse lace.
Base: straw gold.
Palate : mid-lighter body, lighter carbonation but I would not call it flat.
Taste: soft feel with semi dry finish. Mild hop presence.
other notes beyond green bottle issues this is fairly refreshing offering.

Flaske fra Gl. Strand Řllagerjuli-14: bryggeriet sier "one of the purest beers we can make, no additives, no preservatives etc...". My verdict: hardly any flavour or taste, just plain boring. NZ brewers have proved they can do a lot better than this.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This light yellow colored beer has a mildly sweet aroma. It has the subtle flavor of sweet orange. It is very crisp and very mild.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear golden beer, small head with a bad retention. Grain aromas rule over the others, the taste reveals a light body, watery texture, standard carbonation and a regular flavor, like a macro lager with no specific particularities.
