KiwiJonno (76) - Christchurch, - DEC 17, 2008
330mL Bottle. Tastes like the Original Steinlager, but its quite a bit less hopped and without the same bitterness to it. Still the same crisp clean beer. Perhaps this has more of a fullness to it over Steinlager. Very appealing advertising campaign to New Zealanders.

JPDIPSO (5673) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 27, 2016
Needed something pure (aside from sugar after the 3rd edition). Golden color. Diminished off-white head. Grain and floury aromas. Flavors follow, with a touch of perfume. At least itís a small can. 12/10

Pleasant, slightly bitter taste. Moderately carbonated. Drinkable, but nothing to write home about.

BlackHaddock (6387) - 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 (1694) - 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.

Bottled. Clear golden colour with a white head. Aroma and flavour of citrus, straw, malt and hops.

DylansDad (591) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 6, 2016
Not undrinkable. Itís actually quite charming in itís own way. You know, like when you see a chimp that has painted lipstick on his lips... itís kinda like, "stoopid", but ya gotta laugh. Well, that pretty much sums up this beer. Give the chimp a cuddle, for fuckís sake..But then, maybe Iím the half-wit because there seems to be a lot of primates drinking this shit.

MMR (682) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 20, 2015
I havenít 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 (1915) - 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 (475) - 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 itís better than most in this category.

Benzai (14282) - 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.
