3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sunny gold and bright as bright. Well fuelled, persistent fluffy white head drabs a cloud of foam down the glass. Aroma a blend of peppery, herbal hops, lemon zest and toasted grains. Soft, foamy mouthfeel and very light bodied. Fresh chilled it was dry, dusty and dominated by a New Zealand hop back end that is fruity, citric and herbaceous – low bitterness, also peppery especially after the swallow. Malt sweetens as it warms. Very easy drinking, balanced and quaffable. Don’t quite get that they grasped a Deutsches Helles but a tasty lager none the less! (33cL, BB 29/09/12, Freo Doctor)

Okay head and yellow body. Cardboard lager aroma like we’ve seen ten thousand times before (or something. Yeah, I’m not up to ten thousand ratings, but it smells like that smell you get from lagers like this. So there). Flavour is mild and sharp, a bit of lemon, smoothness. Unintrusive. Drinkable. Forgettable.

This one seems to be the weak link in the otherwise outstanding Tuatara range. Weak aroma and stewed vegetable flavour makes it taste like a generic eurofizz lager.

Really underwhelmed by this. I have yet to taste a lager in these crafty times that is worthy of the price and the rare opportunity I have to sample something interesting. That’s probably the worst thing - I only have time for 1, and this is no different to a Heineken or Steinlager.

This "classic Munich style lager" is basically more like your average Partyburner or any other cheap German mass produced swill. Throw in a dash of dishwashing detergent and that’s the flavour right there (maybe that’s what they mean with the tagline "crisp, CLEAN & refreshing). Head fizzes like a low effort homebrew.
Easily the worst from a overrated brewery.
